    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.

    Essentially a reskinned and updated Jurassic Park Operation Genesis. Fortunately for me, that is exactly what I was after.

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.

As a dino lover, i habe to love this game. It has amazing graphics, nice music, and it offers a little challenge to handle all dinos with their specific requirements. Of course it could be better, it may get a little boring after a while, but that is compensated with a variety of gamemodes and diffuculties. Expand

You are the manager of different parks and must build enjoyable parks and infrastructure for dinosaurs and customers as well. A lot of (funny) **** happens during your 'career' which you have to handle. I liked the provided information about dinosaurs.
    Annoying were the NPC-Dialogues and the try to fit the game in the film-universe.
    Overall nice game.

    Firstly I am a huge fan of Jurassic Park and was a fan of JPOG back when it released in 2003.
    I really wanted to like this game but i came to the desision to refund it.
    There are way to many cons both minor and major that stop this being a good if not great game.

    Pros
    -Looks great
    -Sounds Great

    Cons
    -The whole process of increasing dino genomes is tedious and slow.
    -The timers remind me of a F2P mobile game.
    -Camera sometimes has a mind of its own effecting ACU helicopter controls on the odd occasion. Edge scrolling doesn't always work when you exit building stats
    -Lack of dinosaur animations, they sound and look different but do not act different.
    -Dinosaur "needs/comfort" aspect is frustrating sometimes i.e needing the exact amount of trees/same type of dinosaur feels like a chore
    and if this was not met to the exact degree dinos would go rampage.
    -Basic terrain managment
    -The whole experience felt like a waiting game, waiting for research, waiting for dig teams to return... like a F2P mobile game
    -Maps are too small
    -Lack of any form of deep managment or customisation.

    The foundations are there and im confident that FD will deliver in time. Many of the negatives can be patched and i belive JWE will be a better game in the months
    to come but cannot endorse £45 on the game in its current state.
