Roarr! Jurassic Edition
I wanted to like Roarr!. I really did. It just fails on so many levels.
Roarr! The Adventures of Rampage Rex - Jurassic Edition doesn't have a lot going for it. Dull gameplay paired with technical problems and a hideous soundtrack makes this Switch title – despite the cheap price tag – one to avoid.
Roarr! Jurassic Edition on PS4 is a budget title for a budget price. It’s 5-6 hours of family friendly, repetitive button mashing in a clean but simplistic world set to a half-decent soundtrack. The occasional bug, the difficulty that goes from too easy to cheaply unfair and zero replayability beyond butting a dress on a T-Rex mean any potential the game has is squandered however.
The real issue here is just there isn’t very much to sink your teeth into past the initial novelty of it all. Enemies simply aren’t that interesting, most fighting is a bit button mashy, and while the camera is mostly tolerable when fighting against monsters that die quickly in the more extended boss fights it’s almost like a third opponent as you try to keep everything together. If you’ve got a dinosaur-obsessed younger gamer they may enjoy simply stomping around and knocking things out for a while but even though the theme is fun the lack of variety and overall funkiness of the total package bring on an extinction of interest pretty quickly.
