    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.

    An enjoyable journey into better, more dinosaur filled times, that will keep you entertained throughout. The careful balancing acts that are required are demanding without being overwhelming and the dinosaurs look great.

    Jurassic World Evolution is not a deep simulator, but if you are a fan on Jurassic World universe, it's the game of your dream.

    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.

The dinosaurus are so incredibly realistic, the effect on the dinosaurus when it rains is beautiful. When they walk, you can see the dust light up beneath their feet. And the most wonderful thing according to me, is the possibilty to drive between your own dinosaurus, it's like you are really there. The graphics are really beautiful as well. I recommend this game.

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.

Those flaws don'tJurassic World: Evolution is a great park builder, but has a few irredeemable flaws that sort of hinder its awesome-factor. Those flaws don't ruin my entire view on the game, but they do disappoint me. My opinion is mostly positive, but I have some complaints.

    The Good:
    1. It's Jurassic Park.
    2. Gorgeous graphics
    3. A lot of busywork. Some people REALLY hate this, but for people like me, it's a plus.
    4. Time-filler. I had no idea I was playing it for six hours straight today.
    5. Straightforward UI and menus
    6. Immersive environments
    7. Progressive collection system
    8. Watching my dinos roam is very relaxing

    The Bad:
    1. The guests don't give an F. They're bland, they lack character, and they show no emotion unless running from dinos or storms. This makes the world at large seem blander as well.

    2. No story. I love JP so much, and I really wanted a tie-in story campaign. Sadly, it doesn't exist.

    3. No unique dinosaur behaviors. The raptors don't work together to solve problems like in the movies. They just walk around and chatter. The T-Rex doesn't try to break out and destroy a jeep. It just walks in circles. This makes every dinosaur seem... kind of boring. I thought they would at least chase my ACU chopper and ranger jeep when in the enclosures (like, you know, in the game's trailer). Nope. They just stand there. They don't even try to sneak out the gate.

    4. Sometimes the little frustrations can be fun, but other times, you really just want to pull your hair out. On Matanceros, I loved riding my jeep around to manually do tasks, but eventually it got repetitive and less fun. On Muerta I hated my raptors. I almost sold every one of them. Not a single storm went by without them breaking out. This was before I had tougher fences.

    5. I had no idea what the Management View menu was, or what it was for, until I reached Tacano. Which is a bit ironic, because I must not have needed it at all. Still, it would have been nice to understand what it was so I could fully grasp why I wasn't reaching five stars.

    6. There's no way to know a dino's comfort needs until you release them from the lab. This seems like a HUGE oversight, because you're truly unable to plan ahead for what it might need. For example, I released three Dracorexes into a pen filled with a bunch of other herbivores, and they freaked the F out because it was too crowded. They all broke out and injured several guests. I didn't know they would have a limit to their population requirement. I only knew that after I bred them. I guess it kind of makes sense as a manager... but not as someone who runs Jurassic Park. Wouldn't I know what every dino needs ahead of time?

    Overall, despite my complaints, this really is a very fun, and very distracting game. I don't regret my purchase one bit... but I do wish that these flaws were changed. The immersion would be far denser if they were improved upon.

    - This game appears to have less features than Operation Genesis, which came out over a decade ago.

    Uses intrusive Denuvo DRM, essentially a rootkit installed on your system. Avoid.
