    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Once you get past the extremely disappointing realization that you’ve been conned by the official trailer for this game (not one second of footage from the trailer comes from the actual gameplay), there are a few enjoyable aspects of this game. But it could have been so much more.

    Movement via instant transportation detracts a bit from feeling immersed in the game, but I don’t find it all that awkward. More disappointing is the extremely limited area of exploration in the handful of individual locales on the “Exploration” maps, and the fact that the dinosaurs have only one scripted routine in each location and you can’t really interact with them (though some will respond to feeding or bouncing a rock off of them). For the most part, it’s like they’re animatronics in a Disney attraction.

    The battle maps are simply wave shooters, and are pretty easy after you’ve worked your way up to the heavier firepower. And don’t bother looking around on the maps for dinosaur eggs, you acquire them on occasion when you kill the boss in the battles.

    Bottom line, there are dinosaurs in this game, but they’re few and far between (except when you’re killing them), and you won’t have much opportunity to interact with them. The graphics are actually rather primitive, nowhere near as good as Skyrim VR, for example. Gameplay has some enjoyable aspects, but this is basically a $5.00 game in a $50.00 package.

    Another PSVR tech demo with poor controls and terrible presentation. I can’t believe i wasted $500 on a PSVR, disappointment after disappointment with this thing....

    Nope, try again. Good visuals but silly scope. They tried for a cash grab and failed. Nothing here actually worth playing. Plenty of VR games better worth your time than this one.

    A buggy mess. Got stuck on the tutorial twice and had to reset. If you give the dino the apple before the game wants to you to it's too stupid to realise and just gets stuck on "open backpack" then it's close application and do it all again. Thought I'd switch back to teleport as free locomotion is so slow but apparently I cant, there's no options screen

    ARK Park was meant to be a virtual dive in a dinosaur park, bad and dishonest, it looks more like carnosaur the video game.

    Ark Park is not the game we hoped to recommend to all owners of PlayStation VR.

    A VR game that looks and plays almost like it was born during the PS2 era.
