Eye Candy That Leaves You Waiting and Wanting
In a content barren game where these amazing creatures are called "assets," it makes it all too clear that the gamer isn't a "player," they're a "payer." Jurassic World Evolution banks on your dinosaur park building dreams and pulls you in with its flashy dinosaurs, only to disappoint and force you into playing the game the way the game sees fit. Therefore, I'm opting to call Jurassic World Evolution a "Jurassic World Evolution sim," since it only wants you to simulate the ideal, profit-earning park. It's a game that unabashedly defies what came before it, only to fall short in every area of what makes a good park-builder as a result.
