LEGO Jurassic World

Overview -

The LEGO games continue to reign far and wide, bringing in a plethora of properties to realize in Traveller's Tales' style. The announcement of 'LEGO Jurassic World,' which includes both the new film and the preceding three movies, was proof once again that digitized LEGO bricks have the ability to inspire and excite people of all ages.

Spoiler warning: Having not seen 'Jurassic World' prior to reviewing the game, I learned of the movie's story via the gameplay.

Video Review

Ranking:

Backgrounds and streaming water are stunning, bordering on the photorealistic. However, this isn't a game that embraces the raw processing power of the PlayStation 4. It’s never presented as a demo game to showcase the system, and it never intended to be one. It looks like all the other LEGO games, a few graphical bumps notwithstanding. Colors pop in all their crystal clear clarity. I haven’t tried the PS3 edition, but I can’t imagine it looking worse.

Audio Review

Ranking:

The soundtrack's the real awesome deal, ripped straight from the movies. As are the voices, all courtesy of the original cast. Mr. DNA sounds like George McFly in Telltale's 'Back to the Future The Game' (not played by Crispin Glover). Hearing Jeff Goldblum's 'Har Har Haw Haw' in all its glory, warms my nerdy heart to no end. In fact, 'Har har haw haw' can even be heard echoing through one loading screen. Fingers were crossed for 'Dodgson! Dodgson!' to pop up later in the game, but unless it's a very well hidden extra, it seems we haven't got Dodgson here.

Final Thoughts

'LEGO Jurassic World' is a light-hearted, funny and generally excellent take on the four movies. Filled with enough chuckle-worthy moments to lighten up even the sourest of sourpusses, and featuring addictive and worthy gameplay, the game is a no-brainer for 'Jurassic' fans and a must for casual gamers. The only downside is that it's more of the same. If you are tired of TT Games' LEGO offerings by now, steer well clear. All others can safely pick up this title – get it now while the free LEGO Gallimimus is still included!
