Great use of Jurassic Park
Shallow Gameplay

If you like the idea of building your own dinosaur theme park and are a big fan of the franchise, then Jurassic World Evolution is still a decent buy during a sale. Just be prepared to battle with some wonky mechanics and disappointingly simple management options.

In the end, Jurassic World Evolution can never quite transcend a certain knocked-off feeling tied to its licensed roots.

With "Jurassic World Evolution" Frontier Developments delivers a presentable construction game, which is primarily dedicated to the supply and development of dinosaurs. The interaction between the dinosaurs as well as the design of new species is exciting if you do your job well. But even if the representation of the giant lizards knows how to captivate, the other environment offers rather little to do. All in all, however, this circumstance can be overcome and "Jurassic World Evolution" proves to be an entertaining title with small weaknesses.

Design, control and manage your own "Jurassic Park" in this new management game that comes from the hand of Frontier based on the new films of the franchise, but be careful not to mess up the dinosaurs!

Strategy is key in this game, from protecting your buildings from storms out to making sure your park guests do not get eaten and enjoy themselves. Jurassic World Evolution is a solid game that I would recommend to anyone. I think the Jurassic Park fans out there will be very happy with what they have done here. If your a gamer that takes a look at it for a month or dive deep into it for an extended period of time, I do not think it will disappoint.

Jurassic World Evolution is a dream project for the fans of the film, but it's not for everyone. Slow gameplay and some unfinished elements can scare off certain players. However, if you are in love with Spielberg's films and have a ton of toy dinosaurs, then this game can not be missed.

As you can tell from my review, I loved crafting my own Jurassic World parks and hatching the many dinosaurs in the game. My kids were also amazed by the dinosaurs I was creating from the genome my expeditions found. The presentation of this game is top-notch, and includes many different easy to understand mini-games that will help you make your park better. I definitively recommend you to try this game on PlayStation 4!

This dinosaur-tycoon theme park simulator is bare bones, but delivers a few Jurassic Park-size thrills.
