If you already love the Jurassic World Evolution 2 game, you can't go wrong picking up the DLC packs. They let me play with some of my personal favorites, and with loving the Camp Cretaceous TV show as much as I do, it was very exciting to see them walking in my very own park. The lagoon creatures are always impressive to watch, and I still have to add in an aviary to check out the new Dsungaripterus species. I've loved both installments of the Jurassic World Evolution franchise, and the Camp Cretaceous and Early Cretaceous DLC are just icing on the cake. This game can be dangerous for me to play because I get so involved that I lose track of time.

Jurassic World Evolution 2 is a rather successful sequel to its big brother in addition to bringing some improvements to a more sophisticated enclosure management system or the addition of scientists. Not to mention the full integration of aviaries or ponds to add dinosaurs. However, the single-player campaign, which is certainly more immersive, is far too short for a game marketed at the same price as AAA or almost. The absence of a tutorial is also problematic especially for new players to the franchise who will have to themselves and via the Chaos Theory mode discover the intricacies of this management game.

The Early Cretaceous pack isn't as vital as the free update is, but more dinosaurs is always a good thing when recreating your ideal prehistoric park. While the DLC may be light on new features, the inclusion of both a new flying reptile and a new sea critter enhance the otherwise smaller selection of these beasts, especially when compared to their land-dwelling counterparts. The two ground dinosaurs added with the pack are also fantastic additions in their own right, especially the adorable Minmi. The game has a fantastic community management team with Frontier who actively listen to their fanbase, so no doubt the future of Jurassic World Evolution 2 is solidified, thanks to the encouraging signs that the Early Cretaceous pack offers.

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.

The whole game would hardly look for a competitor in its genre. It's a shame that in some places it seems unfinished and sloppy. But it's still worth a try. Even for players who don't like dinosaurs.

The second incarnation of the Jurassic World Evolution series is undoubtedly a clear step forward compared to its predecessor. The end result is a revised and corrected version of a formula that overall continues to work quite well and that we think can satisfy fans of the saga. The game is elaborate but not particularly challenging, and could certainly represent a more than satisfying pastime, as long as you overlook some small flaws that afflict its playful structure.

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

Jurassic World Evolution 2 is, by far, the most complete dino theme park simulator package today. I love it, it's worth it, you need to get out there and buy it so life can find its way.

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 does not reinvent the formula but greatly improves it by inflating its content and management options.

Jurassic World Evolution 2 is basically a perfect sequel. It builds upon the pillars of the previous entry and takes us to new and unexpected places to build the dinosaur park of our dreams, live exciting adventures or relieve interesting takes on the movie franchise.

Highly recommended for fans of Spielberg's films and, of course, for dinosaur lovers. But if you're looking for a game that really tests your management multitasking skills, I recommend looking for a more genre-specific title.

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.

If the first chapter of the series represented a novelty and a small gem in the managerial games universe, this sequel expands and enriches the experience but it loses the opportunity to deepen the management component. It is an evolution of the first chapter, with new content and modes, but without adding substantial new features to the game formula.

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

Jurassic World Evolution 2 is a must-have game for all those who grew up with Jurassic Park or who are newly hooked on Jurassic World. A game of construction and management much deeper and more complete than its first installment.

This is a real treat for Jurassic World fans. Evolution may have laid the ground work, but Evolution 2 manages to improve upon the issues of its predecessor and offer some really tasty, enjoyable, and quality content that will satisfy those familiar with the franchise while creating a really great jumping on point for those who’ve never visited before. Easily one of the best Jurassic World games of all time.

If you like dinosaurs and enjoyed the possibilities of appearance and characteristics modification for each species, you certainly appreciated the previous game in the franchise. However, I believe the enhancements to the interface and the player experience along with the big additions to animals and nature elements are already enough to give this new adventure a try.
