    Jurassic World Evolution is not the best or most complex management sim on the planet, but that's okay, it’s still demanding enough to be very entertaining. The focal point of the game are the dinosaurs anyway, and they look amazing.

    Jurassic World Evolution may not be the best theme park management game, but it’s the most exciting dinosaur management game. And that’s enough for us.

    Jurassic World Evolution is a management game that makes all the franchise' fans happy like never before. The structure and the interface, are simpler in order to fit better to console platform, but could not be appreciated entirely by the more intransigent experts of the genre. Anyway, if you love the big lizards lived in the prehistoric age, this title is a must have.

    Jurassic World Evolution is a game with great potential, but at the same time a tycoon proposal undermined by some weird design decisions and a lack of variety and depth.

    If there's one word that could easily describe Jurassic World Evolution, it's "faithful." Taking control of a ranger behind the wheel of a Jeep in the rain and sidling up to a pack of socializing Stegosaurus is as epic as it sounds and is a definite highlight, as is releasing a newly recovered species into your park. Despite the campaign stumbling over itself and losing focus towards the end, Evolution captures the essence of Jurassic Park while being a good park management sim in its own right.

    This is a interesting management game particularly for Jurassic Park fans, but it’s very simple and limited.

    Unfortunately, the act of doing all this research and genetic splicing amounts to the same level of involvement as a mobile clicker game. It’s just plain tedious. No one is saying that science has to be exhilarating, but it should at least feel more fulfilling than snoozing your morning alarm clock.

Yes some things are missing and it will come later i'm sure (decoration air dino etc). As everyone know thirst Dlc will be free which can compensate for the things missing at launch.
    Game is running fine, graphics are good. Frontier is a great studio and i'm sure they will keep improving it.
    Of course it could have been better but i think Universal is a bit responsible for a premature realease.

    Nonetheless great Game. Should Buy it it's our only chance i think to have a great Jurassic Park Game.

The game is really fun and always something to do. Reminds me a lot of Dino Park Tycoon but updated for the modern era. A game like this could have easily been turned into a free-to-play game with tons of microtransactions, so i truly appreciate charging us for a full priced game without nickel and diming us. Expand

    It may not be the best simulator on earth, but Jurassic world evolution does a pretty great job in the park-manager simulator kind-of game.

Ive seen every film, bought the merch and played the betterIm a big fan of the franchise and sims like planetcoaster (mindblowing game). Ive seen every film, bought the merch and played the better games. I love dinosaurs and even colloct fossils lol The 10 reviews are as useful as the 2 score user reviews. Ill try to find some honest middle ground.

    The game is good if you like mobile games where you wait long times with little to do. It's good if you like stats more than everything else. It's good if you love looking at dinos but not doing much with them. So for some it's good.

    For others who maybe love jurassic park or world and expected a mixture of strategy gameplay types, variety and little repitition ...maybe not so much.

    The game looks really good though it has some heavy popup and occasional glitches. It sounds great with epic music but a mix bad of film star voices and terrible impressions.

    You can drive 2 (3) vehicle types but you don't do much with them and the beautiful gets very samey quickly. Both jp world films have bikes...game has de-evolved so no bikes.
    There isnt much botany variety or options to study this important part of the film either. You can take photos but its gets boring quickly.

    It has virtually no guest management which is odd for a park sim. No children either which is just surreal for a dino park and franchise based on children in peril. The game expects you to wait long periods of time for the dinos and in that time it would have been nice to look after guests or even build a toilet or a ride...none of that basic park sim stuff.

    The maps can be quite restricting and very fiddly at times as can the dinos who aren't really like any actual real animal due to thier limited behaviour. Its a bit paper scissors rocks and when they fight the outcomes make no sense.

    A lot doesn't make sense. Especially the very crude way the staff are managed. Id have hoped for real espionage and takeover bids and the Jurassic park stuff we love but its been watered down to prompts. Many of the missions were identical and lazy with different factions asking the same requests but equally criticising you and really basic dumb sabotage not on the scale of the films.

    Microtranactions. I feel this game will be adding lits of paid dlc. Theres some free film tie in but that's actually marketing material so meh. The digital has preorder b.s. but physical copies when released in a month will have to pay for that day one removed content dlc. I found this a little shady.

    Overall i feel its one of those games which deserves an instant sequel which im sure will be infinitely more varied and interesting and fun.

    The current game seems very old fashioned and the ui is poorly presented at times. Maybe more time would have helped but they were clearly forced to releaae early due to the film tiein.

    Wait for a sale.

    Ps id have given a 7 but the microtranactions annoyed me as do these gushing 9-10 reviews for a game which just isnt as good as its predecessors and dev high pedigree. I won't give a red review as that be a joke after all the hard work the devs clearly put into this and all their titles.

Don't know why anyone likes it, other that having an affinity for the movie, which I share. But it is crap, trust me. No way to understand the mechanics, awful storytelling, boring, frustrating. And in terms of a comparison to high quality RTS games, well, yuk. Do yourself a favor and try something else. I only give it a 2 because I love Jeff Goldblum, who does some nice voice work, although I suspect he is not a fan, either. Expand
