We had the pleasure of playing Jurassic World: Evolution on Game On. In this game you work to create your own Jurassic Park in which hopefully you don’t have the dinosaurs break out and eat all the visitors.
While the game takes place over 5 separate islands, due to time constraints we were only able to play a little bit on the first island. The game is rather in depth as it give you control over dinosaur research and development which involves expeditions for bones and researching other animal genes and their effects on the dinosaurs. You decide on the design of the park, what merchandise it sells, what food it sells, even the amount you charge for each and the amount of staffing for each vendor.
When the dinosaurs do eventually run amok, which the game gets you to release one dinosaur in to the public to practice, you lead the Asset Containment Unit (ACU). The game gives you the option to either jump in the helicopter to try and capture the renegade prehistoric beast, or you can let the computer to control them with a few quick buttons. The game also gives you a group of park rangers who’s job it is to refill feed pens, remove dead dino carcasses, and provide medicine to dinosaurs when they get sick.
Overall, we all enjoyed this game and were largely in favour of owning it. We had a little bit of fun at the end and released the carnivorous creations we had in to the general public and watched them run amok. I don’t think people would return to a theme park run by the hosts of Game On after that.
