Great use of Jurassic Park
Shallow Gameplay
Repetitive

Summary: While most critics hailed Jurassic World Evolution's creative and spot-on use of the Jurassic Park fantasy world, many also were critical of its shallow and repetitive gameplay. If you're looking for a time-sink, this might be for you.

4.8 / 10.0
Dan Stapleton

Besides the fact that there's absolutely no evolution involved in it, Jurassic World: Evolution is a bad game because it's just a bore of a park sim. Sure, the dinosaurs look nice enough, but the process of unlocking new species is beyond tedious and actually running the business is shallow and quickly gets stale. It beats getting mauled by raptors, but after careful consideration, I've decided not to endorse this park.

Initially stunning but lacking the depth and variety to support mammoth playtimes.

Probably the best ever use of the Jurassic Park licence in a video game, marred by repetition and exploitable systems.
