The awesome folks over at Frontier Developments gave me the chance to play their business simulation game, “Jurassic World Evolution” where players can play the role of the manager of Jurassic World located on the island chain known as The Five Deaths.
There are five levels (islands) to play and each has something unique about them and, one very special island that’s a sandbox mode. On each island, you will be given tasks provided to you by three divisions, science, entertainment, and security.
When you complete a task for a division will result in money and potential to unlock new dinosaur DNA or perks for your buildings but you must be careful as completing one task may affect your standings with the others and if one division is ignored for too long, they will sabotage buildings or gates to enclosures.
The parks have star ratings and generally when you reach three stars the next level unlocks. To keep the numbers of guests up you must make and release dinos and maintain the park overall as well as the dinosaurs (make sure they’re fed, medicate them if they’re sick, etc).
Along your journey, you’re accompanied by characters from the films, Dr. Ian Malcolm (voiced by Jeff Goldblum), Dr. Henry Wu (voiced by B.D. Wong), Claire Dearing (voiced by Bryce Dallas Howard) and Owen Grady (voiced by A.J. LoCascio).
My Final Thoughts: The game is addictive. If you love ‘Jurassic Park’ or dinosaurs, this is for you! It’s fun and stressful at the same time but you come back for more, especially because when you unlock the sandbox mode, you can create your own park that can be really awesome or like how I made mine…a dinosaur buffet (see below!)!
I usually don’t like these type of simulation games but, if I can have a lot of fun with it, so can you and if I can’t convince you, well, you’ll miss out on unlocking your own gyrosphear!
