Game review: Jurassic World Evolution

It’s not quite 65 million years in the making, but to gamers the 15 year wait between Jurassic Park Operation Genesis and Frontier Development’s Jurassic World Evolution may as well have felt that long.

Let’s kick things off with the big hitters. This game is not the game that we hoped it would be, it’s flawed and at times frustrating. But when it hits its stride it hits it wonderfully and it sucks you into the world like few games can.

There’s likely far more riding on Fallen Kingdom than most fans realise. Whether you liked the final product of Jurassic World or not, the one thing that cannot be debated is the fact that it made an absolutely huge amount of money for Universal.
