Anyone else getting this?

Positive reviews apart from IGN.

RPS didn't like it either, calling it worse than Planet Coaster

I thought Planet Coaster had been well received?

Fetch me old brown trousers, bring them to me now, I'll wear them in the rigging as they fire across the bow. Fetch me old brown trousers, I fear we may be hit, for even if they shoot me now, they'll never see me... ;)

Yeah, bad phrasing there. They say it's worse than PC, which was good. This, they said is not.

I only saw a tweet about this, and it said It's amazing, to begin with, but it lacks the depth to be a great game.

Did they say what was so bad? Is there hope it might be patched good?

Jurassic World Evolution is the most boring of all possible outcomes for a dinosaur theme park sim. There’s no outlet for creativity and, aside from the prehistoric pals you might make, managing the parks just isn’t a lot of fun. By the time I’d unlocked enough to make the sandbox mode live up to its name, I realised I had nothing left to build.

Oh dear. Hopefully they'll get to work on some patches and DLC to make it worthwhile.

Played from 7am to 12pm... Yeah it's addictive.

Takes a while to get into as it's all new to me. But it's very simple in structure and the music is lovely. Especially the gentle piano when you're just pottering about.

After a lot more hours play and returning to the previous island I've now unlocked the 4th island.

The game play loop is satisfying and the dinosaurs all look great.

My next task is to research and create the T Rex, though I suspect it won't end well...

Will definitely be purchasing when it’s cheaper, even if it doesn’t quite live up to the potential. Gotta be worth 20 quid on PS4.

How do you manage to strawberry float up a theme park with dinos in? :fp:

It's strange, that review is definitely an outlier.
