Jurassic World Evolution – a game for the dinosaur loving

When I was 6 my grandmother bought ‘Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis’ for windows and I absolutely loved it. I spent every minute playing that game and to this day I don’t regret any of it.

Now we have this remade version and it gives us everything the original did, whilst incorporating its own mechanics and feel, quite subtly but yet comfortably.

The game was developed and published by Frontier Developments. It can be purchased and played on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows.

It is definitely worth a look and I am probably going to get around to playing it again soon – especially when the update comes out in April.

The game doesn’t run along with the story of Jurassic Park and Jurassic World, but at no time does it contradict it. You are just the park manager and you do as your told, but having the freedom to decide how you spend your money, what dinosaurs you get, and what contracts you do and do not take.

It’s just your simple park builder game, with the addition of dinosaurs, which adds a behavioural mechanic of keeping every single dinosaur happy, in order to keep an orderly, functioning, happy, wealthy park.

This is fun for a period of time, but as you would expect it does get repetitive after a while. though you may soon have an unprovoked outbreak, or maybe you have finished your work on the island you were just on, and now can move on.

If you have gotten far enough in the game you may be getting your first Indominus Rex, or in the unlikely case that you bought all the DLC’s like me (blowing $50) you can finally start the Dr Wu DLC.

The graphics on this game are amazing but even though the game isn’t in early access or beta or anything like that, it is still very unpolished; weird glitches and bugs are always popping up everywhere. This is because development is slow but a large update has been announced to come out in April.

I give it a 7.5/10

Age Rating: M (violence) – dinosaurs eating goats and people occasionally.
