Jurassic World Evolution 2 builds on its predecessor's framework to create a super-satisfying park management sim with the occasional raptor attack.

Jurassic World: Evolution 2 makes enough changes to the gameplay of its predecessor that it eclipses wholly feeling like just an expansion pack, but with the cosmetic additions, new locations, and customization options for buildings making up the bulk of visible changes it can seem like that's what developer Frontier was after. Though the game has frustrating moments, it's inherently captivating from the start. Those eager to jump back into the world of the franchise with a game that offers more than the original will have fun with its new additions, but the oft-laborious tasks that come with actually running a dinosaur park and managing a team might make this feel less like a game and more like a second job to others. Considering the larger subtext of the book and film that spawned this entire thing though, can we really be mad when the game punishes us for attempting to squeeze wealth out of nature?

Jurassic World Evolution 2 isn't exactly a bad game but it's not one that I would call fun. Sure, it's a compelling experience and the joy of being able to play with dinosaurs is unique but the bugs are a massive hindrance that make it far more frustrating than it should be.

If you enjoyed the original game, Jurassic World Evolution 2 is sure to bring you hours of entertainment (not including the "campaign"). However, for players hoping for more than a full priced DLC, disappointment is unavoidable.

There’s still room for improvement, a Jurassic World Evolution 1.999 by my calculations, but even with its issues, Jurassic World Evolution 2 is a fantastic sim game that’ll have you coming back for more, even when you’ve exhausted its campaign and Chaos Theory mode. It’s an absolute must if you’ve got the remotest interest in Jurassic Park, dinosaurs or unleashing nightmarish giant lizards upon an unsuspecting public.

This then is the challenge with Jurassic World Evolution 2. If you're a Jurassic Film fan who also likes micromanagement, there's certainly enough meat on its dinosaur bones to keep you happy for a good long while. However, if you're more just a management sim fan, you'll probably find its quirky management style – sometimes hands-on, sometimes hands-off – a tad irritating, as well as the limitations of its console controls.

‎Jurassic World Evolution 2 turns our classic dinosaur park into a huge dinosaur shelter. But a wilder, more detailed, demanding and, ultimately, more spectacular. Those who are fond of the license, will find a game that pampers every aspect related to dinosaurs and their enjoyment. Those who are fans of the genre, will find a more complete game and a more demanding point than its first installment, which if anything sinned was to be too soft for the most experts.‎

Jurrasic World: Evolution 2 will not impress genre players. Although it seems that the game has all the necessary components for this, this is not the case. It is a good fun for novices and lovers of prehistory.

Successful return to dino world with big role of scientists. Well, but with some old failings and weak campaign. But there is much better Chaos theory an Challenge modes.

Jurassic World Evolution 2 has slightly improved, but sadly it is not the evolutionary leap we were expecting.

Despite its shortcomings, it's very pleasant, and Ian Malcolm would approve of this park.

While my complaints are numerous, I still enjoyed Jurassic World Evolution 2 more than I was frustrated by it. It’s already better than the original in many ways, and with a few more patches and DLC, it will probably be a great theme park management game. For now, I’d personally recommend holding off to see how the game is improved in the coming months.

Jurassic World Evolution 2 covers all its bases in the newest iteration of the franchise. Aside from a few clunky issues when designing, every detail was considered and the game will appeal to a wide range of gamers, not just fans of Jurassic Park or Sim games.

Jurassic World Evolution 2 is the perfect sequel- it's bigger, better, and toothier than its predecessor in almost every way that matters.

Jurassic World Evolution 2 is a true nostalgia operation, a perfectly successful tribute to the films of the saga created by Crichton and a joy for those who as a child spent hours and hours admiring dinosaurs in books. Unfortunately, the merits of the Frontier management system stop here, because if you analyze the individual elements of the gameplay you soon realize the limits imposed by a game loop that runs out quickly and in which you have to intervene too frequently due to an intrusive micromanagement that breaks the flow.

While it doesn't go crazy, Jurassic World Evolution 2 has almost perfected dinosaur-theme-park managers. Just ignore the weird voices and occasional bugs.

There's still some way to go to make the JWE franchise a viable management sim, but this sequel goes a long way to right a lot of its predecessor's wrongs.

As a celebration of all things Jurassic, Jurassic World Evolution 2 serves as a worthy successor to the original. As a park management game, it struggles to find a meaningful focal point. Given Frontier's expertise in this exact department elsewhere, that's more than a little disappointing. A light, messy sim that acts as a tribute to the prehistoric pandemonium of the Jurassic Park/World series.
