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

    The mostly gorgeous visuals add to the well captured Jurassic Park atmosphere. In terms of gameplay though, it stays mostly shallow.

    Jurassic World Evolution is a direct shot to nostalgia with the appearance of familiar faces, the magic BSO and a huge variety of dinosaurs. Even so, it’s global simplicity and the current lack of options in the management of the park makes the necessity of various updates in order to improve and become the perfect Jurassic Park simulator we all want.

    Jurassic World Evolution is a good game, but some of its elements are painfully unfinished. If you really want to build your dinosaur park, do not look any further, however, the game should definitely be a bit cheaper. [Issue#287]

    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.

    Resource Management game,
    Build a Park, maintain it, keep customers happy, build atractions and such...
    All in all? a good time.

    ...

    Then Dinossaur happen.
    THEN IT BECOMES AWESOME,
    BUILD A PARK, MAINTAIN IT, KEEP CUSTOMERS HAPPY, BUILD ATRACTIONS AND BREED DINOS!
    Then when you unlock the Sandbox mode, re-create the movies with some Violently-Awesome results!

    ALL IN ALL? A GREAT TIME!

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.

It hasI've never played Jurassic Park: Operation Genesis, but I've waited years for an equivalent game to come out. This game fills the void. It has its faults, but many of those can easily be fixed with later updates and DLC.

    Pros:
    -Game looks amazing
    -The focus is on the dinosaurs and not the park visitors
    -There is flexibility in play style
    -Game is challenging in the right way. There's nothing like having a Stegosaurus get lonely, break out, and cause absolute chaos.

    Cons:
    -Decorations and park amenities are limited. The ones that do exist are very plain.
    -Services like the ACU and Rangers need some automation
    -There is not nearly enough space on the map for what you want to do.

    +5 impressive theme
    +2 solid graphic and optimization

    -1 low budget
    -1 little to no content
    -10 bad control, UI design, statistics, very very uncomfortable control
    you need to get through 3-4 layers of UI each step of a building process, energy fades fast
    -1 no steamworkshop support
    small map with first-person-mode, not very useful

    Conclution
    a $40 Planet Coaster Expansion, it would worth the money if it is really a DLC expansion not a stand alone

    I didn't even buy the game yet (just by watching videos and livestreams) and here's my review off a company, a good company trying to beI didn't even buy the game yet (just by watching videos and livestreams) and here's my review off a company, a good company trying to be sc*umbags and rip people off. So I"m here to save you money and wait for a sale like me.

    First off, how much money are Frontier in debt for those voice-overs and licenses? Because really, a $55 retail game with 0 campaign, no modding support and no island creator?

    Jurassic World Evolution 'campaign' isn't in-depth at all and it lacks story telling, it's very repetitive which in general will force people to get bored of the game. And of course, just like in the movies you have idiotic people in-game saying, 'We should make these Dinosaurs fight each other for research.' Really? What is that going to accomplish?

    Is it worth $55 or $60 dollars, no. Jurassic World Evolution looks like a Steam Early Access title that was released early to take advantage of sales of the newest Jurassic World movie.

    Pros:
    - Great engine
    - Art/detail
    - Music and sound effects
    - Weather
    - Drivable vehicles
    - Sandbox island (sadly it's small with boundaries)

    Cons:
    - In-game shops/stores can't sell all the items the store as to offer and than individual control each items price. Instead you have to choose 1 item, what?
    - Sandbox isn't even a gamemode, you have to create a new campaign save in order to get access to Sandbox.
    - Chris Pratt in-game character is not voice-over by Chris Pratt... Why include his icon, character and backstory in the first place?
    - Rangers don't have the ability to tranquilize a Dinosaurs.
    - Having to call in a helicopter to transport a small Dinosaur, really? Why not call in a transport truck?
    - Frontier made and published this game, but yet they didn't include nothing from Planet Coaster to this game. For one, first person viewing in rides and viewing the map as a visitor and not as a creator.

    Campaign
    - Campaign? You can't go passive and just have a park with random events. You have to go full psycho and make Dino's fight each other, etc. If I could, I would fire my whole team in-game.
    -- Speaking of the "campaign." It's repetitive. Go hear to fix a power outage, go here to take a picture, make new Dinosaurs, make Dinosaurs fight each other and make Dinosaurs get outside of their comfort zone, etc.

    AI
    - You can't tell the AI helicopter to hover in place, come back in a minute and the helicopter is landing back at base.
    - Activate the Shelter, AI don't go inside the Shelter. Instead they running around in circles or walk.
    - AI randomly go through fences and Dinosaurs AI randomly go through fences as well.

    Dinosaurs
    - Dinosaurs? For one Velociraptors are too strong? They can literally break down a electrically fence?
    -- Tranquilize a Dinosaur, they don't wake up until you get a helicopter to move them.
    -- No water Dinosaurs?
    -- The aggressive Dinosaurs don't attack the vehicles inside the enclosure.

    Islands
    - Islands? Pretty limited, a lot of islands in the "campaign" have boundaries.
    -- Sandbox island is small with boundaries.
    -- Islands don't connect to each other to share profits, etc but somehow you can share the same research.
    -- I shouldn't have to have a loading screen per island or a crap island animation video in general. Frontier you implemented Monorails in the game, why not put the person in the Monorail for the loading screen? 2 loading screens aren't needed.

    Monorail
    - Monorail? If you research for the monorail you can't make it connect to the main monorail that brings in visitors.
    -- You can't put monorail tracks outside of the island boundaries... Even though you own the island.

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