Jurassic World Evolution: Return To Jurassic Park
Top Critic Average
Overall, “Return to Jurassic Park” is a wonderful and expansive DLC. Instead of just dropping in nostalgic designs, this expansion goes above and beyond to craft a new gameplay experience for players. Which, at a $19.99 price, is the best thing about it.
With this latest batch of DLC, Frontier have taken Jurassic World Evolution to its natural conclusion. All that budding dinosaur park owners ever really wanted to do was create their own Jurassic Park and now they can, buoyed along by the deeply welcome return of the franchise's most recognisable stars.
Jurassic World Evolution: Return to Jurassic Park is an expansion which I believe should have been in the game from the start, serving as a tutorial to the game and introduction to the characters. It enables you to not only help the three original protagonists from the movies to rebuild the park to its ‘former glory’, but also unlock iconic buildings and dinosaurs to use in multiple game modes. Although the voice acting was a mixed bag, having three original actors from the film reprise their roles within the narrative of the new campaign was a great experience, something fans of the original trilogy will love. This game still stands as one of the best God-like simulation games on consoles so far this generation.
Return to Jurassic Park is a downloadable content for Jurassic World Evolution that will delight fans of the first film in the saga. Care has been taken even with the smallest details, the recreation of the original park, the structures, its doors, the appearance of the dinosaurs, the route of the jeeps on rails, to the voices, in their original version, of the actors of the original film. A product for fans that, however, is not perfect because of its unlikely story, and the little additional content it really adds, just a couple of new dinosaurs. Despite this, if we like fan service, it will be worth returning to Nublar Island.

Fulfilled dream of John Hammond for big fans of Jurassic park movies. It is not unique DLC, there are not big improvements and rangers are dull, but still good nostalgia.

Jurassic World Evolution: Return to Jurassic Park is not just for Jurassic Park movie fans or those who get a non-physical kick out of dinosaurs but is also for those who enjoy realism and watching their map grow and flow.
As an expansion clearly built by Jurassic Park fans for Jurassic Park fans, this is not only a must-have addition to Jurassic World Evolution, but presents a pretty compelling argument for even picking up the game in the first place.
