Lego Jurassic World review: Better than Jurassic Park III

Hayden Dingman | July 8, 2015
I'll be honest: Lego Jurassic World is the first Lego game I've finished in quite a while now. Probably since 2012's Lego Lord of the Rings. And that's because in broad swathes all of these games are exactly the same--take a beloved series, convert the characters (and some of the scenery) into Lego bricks, then punch things apart and pick up about a million different collectibles.

The game runs, sure--and runs well after tweaking. But it points to a certain lax approach to PC porting that I'm not sure I'm comfortable with. And it's one I hope the devs fix soon.

Bottom line

Lego Jurassic World is neither the most ambitious of the Lego games (that honor goes to Lord of the Rings) nor the most polished (Marvel Super Heroes).

But Lego dinosaurs. If those words get you excited, great--I recommend you look into Lego Jurassic World for a few hours of dumb, mindless collectible-hunting and light puzzle solving. If they don't get you excited, give this one a miss. With this series, it really is that simple.
