The latest Jurassic Park movie was decent. Not ground breaking but who really expected it to be? In the gaming world, things are a little more forgiving. Lego Jurassic World doesn’t attempt to screw the players over by only focusing on one of the movies. Rather, in Lego Jurassic World you are going to get to play through all four Jurassic Park movies. Similar to how the Lego Harry Potter games were released.
While Lego Jurassic World is not going to give you tons of levels in each movies setting, you will see enough to be reminded of the better parts. Unfortunately, Lego Jurassic World is based on the other mobile versions (3DS and Playstation Vita) so you are not going to get the console game on Android and iPhone.
Interestingly, Lego Jurassic World allows you to play as the dinosaurs. Normally in these types of movie conversions we get to play as the people. Not here. That is kind of cool- how many times in a game do you start as one of the more powerful characters?
As you play you collect Lego amber and dinosaur DNA. With these two ingredients you can create your own custom dinosaur. Pretty cool customization option there. Too bad there is no way to scan barcodes of Lego sets you own and using at least some of those parts in the game.
As with the other Lego games on mobile devices, pay once and you are done. No In App Purchases to worry about. Like it? Support it. If you are sick of In App Purchases then support companies that give you full games for one price.
