    Jurassic World Evolution 2 is the perfect sequel- it's bigger, better, and toothier than its predecessor in almost every way that matters.

    Jurassic World Evolution 2 is bigger, better, and bolder, and smooths off some of the original’s rough edges. Frontier has tinkered with the management sim aspects, and brought in a canonical campaign into the mix that follows directly on from the events in Jurassic World Fallen Kingdom, but the dinosaurs remain the star of the show. If you’re a fan of the franchise – and really, who doesn’t love uncontrollable carnivores? – then Jurassic World Evolution 2 is a perfect sequel.

    This is a solid evolution –no pun intended– of the series, where everything is better and clearer. making it a more enjoyable experience for both fans and newcomers.

    The fact that Jurassic World Evolution 2 is a worthwhile game isn’t surprising. Frontier Developments has a fantastic track record with this kind of game, as proven in Planet Zoo or the first edition of this title. What works in this game’s favor is the expanded roster of dinosaurs, the new challenges and the fantastic animations and behaviors of the exhibits. Being a licensed game, the temptation towards being simple had to have been strong. Some would argue the first game swung to hard in the accessible direction. With this newest iteration, the game walks the line of easy to understand but deep enough to remain engaging. Despite frustrations, Frontier Developments, much like life, found a way.

    If you enjoyed the original game, Jurassic World Evolution 2 is sure to bring you hours of entertainment (not including the “campaign”). However, for players hoping for more than a full priced DLC, disappointment is unavoidable.

    This is the definitive Jurassic World park building experience. I loved the first game, but this is a whole lot better. Building your parkThis is the definitive Jurassic World park building experience. I loved the first game, but this is a whole lot better. Building your park feels a lot more easier, while also having to think on what it takes to gain the 5 star rating. The dinosaurs act and feel like animals, the visuals are stunning, especially on the PS5, running at a smooth 60fps, and the new Chaos Theory mode provide a good challenge, while also having nostalgia of watching all the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World movies. I will say that the man campaign is very short, but Chaos Theory, Challenge Mode and Sandbox makes it up. I do hope to see that they make DLC for the upcoming Jurassic World Dominion, as that would be amazing to see new dinosaurs, new maps and potentially new skins for already existing dinosaurs. As Ian Malcolm would say, Life finds a way. Expand

All of the dinosaurs feel like actual animals this time around, with brand new social interactions & smoother animations. The pterosaurs & marine reptiles also have unique animations which makes them just as interesting to watch as the dinosaurs. The new scientist management adds a new level of management the first game lacked. Also the new customizable buildings really do make each park feel different & stick out from each other. The campaign is a fun way to introduce new players to the game &. Chaos theory is a blast to play. Getting to see each what if scenario is a real treat. Overall the game is a perfect sequel. Expand

Tutte le nuove funzionalità e le meccaniche di gestione, compresa l’interfaccia utente possono mandare un pò in confusione soprattutto i neofiti ma dopo aver capito le meccaniche diventerà tutto più facile. Inoltre le opzioni di personalizzazione consentono al giocatore di attenuare la difficoltà a loro piacimento. Frontier ha fatto un eccellente lavoro è un sequel strepitoso e gratificante. Questo titolo offre un’entusiasmante esperienza di gestione del parco.Abbiamo un team di scienziati che supervisionerà quasi tutto: ricerca, salvataggio dei dinosauri, spedizioni e persino medicina. Saranno necessari diversi specialisti per compiti diversi, quindi avere una squadra varia è vitale.

    Occhio però…bisogna ben bilanciare il salvataggio dei dinosauri, l’estrazione di fossili, l’allevamento e la costruzione con la gestione dei problemi medici, la ricerca, l’aggiornamento delle infrastrutture e il controllo delle emergenze, comprese tempeste e sabotaggi.

    I've platinumed the first JW:E on the PS4.

    Finished the Campaign and it was a more of a Tutorial than a story driven campaign. Gives a bit of a clue where the new movie is heading towards though. Chaos Theory is an interesting 'What if' scenario to all 4 movies. Nearly finished the JP one.

    Graphics even though good, I thought they would at least have some ray tracing in game especially the water reflections. Pretty disappointing for a next gen console. Dinos have new animations that are really cool, like the Carnotaurus resting on it's tail like a kangaroo.

    Planning your dino enclosures is more thorough implementing food types for Herbivores which they got from Claire's Sanctuary DLC from JW:E. There's no longer a plant dispenser so the Herbivores can just eat the foliage that you plant in their enclosures.

    Ranger's roles are now just patrolling and repair. There's a mobile vet team that handles dino injuries and sickness. They also have a station where you can send the seriously injured dinos in for emergency surgery with a magic spray machine : D

    Mechanics have been expanded where it can get very tedious. The most annoying part is the scientists and Hatchery having a 2 step method to freaking hatch the eggs.

    Couple of good additions is good and bad dino perks in the DNA sequencing. So you'll roughly 6 eggs and 3 out of the 6 eggs could have negative traits like aggression and anti social behaviours. So you might have to discard the eggs or if your not financially sound just go with it and risk a disaster happening at your park.

    Improvement to the shops, food and drinks where you can provide to different types of crowds. All the shops looks can be customised and renamed to really make it unique from each other.

    Overall, I find the game alright. I really preferred the island hopping in the first one where you can go back and fix. With JW:E 2 although improved, it made the small things too tedious.

And yes I beat the glorified tutorial they call a campaign and yes I have played the chaos theory modes. Frontier clearly got lazy with this game. They found a way to take the first game and make it more tedious and more stressful well simultaneously far less rewarding and enjoyable. Wait for this game to become deeply discounted or just stick with JWE1. Expand
