    Jurassic has enough open-ended depth to appease "RollerCoaster Tycoon" players, fossil hunters, and anyone looking to bag some big game. [2 May 2003, p.79]
  2. Visually and aurally stunning, and has somewhat interesting if uninspired gameplay, but doesn’t have enough interest to hold die hard niche fans.
  3. Takes the theme park genre and injects it with a little dino-fever. The end result is surprisingly entertaining!
  4. Overall, the simplicity is really the only thing that holds Operation Genesis back: it comes across as more of a children’s game than a fully-fledged management title and doesn’t have the enduring challenges to really snare the proper calculator junkies.

    A very addictive game that continues to surprise and delight the more you play. For the money, there's plenty to do, and best of all it lets you focus on what you find fun.
  6. This game captured my attention… for about a day and a half.

The only downside is that it gets boring very quickly. The whole enjoyment comes from building the park. Sure the challenges are a good addition but once you're done with them (which are really easy) it feels like a chore to have to build a park again. Because once you're done, it's just boring. There's nothing exciting or particularly fun to do. Full Review »
