LEGO JURASSIC WORLD

TT Games/WB Games



Jurassic Park is frightening in the dark, all the dinosaurs are running wild.

Damn, we should be doing parody songs. Well, except that we ripped that wholesale from the master thereof, Weird Al. Mind you, borrowing’s kind of apt as this 647th (or thereabouts) LEGO game hits, for – as expected - it recycles bulk chunks from its predecessors.

The game engine’s showing certain prehistoric tendencies beyond the subject matter. Glitches still invade too often, and you’d think now that we’re all new generational and stuff that TT Games might have spent some time sprucing things up technically.

Still, this is a LEGO game, and we’re used to turning blind eyes to various cracks due to the ace fun that abounds. Plus, this one is – as the title ably indicates - based on the new Jurassic World flick. But that’s not all, it also features the original pair of Jurassic Park flicks plus the one that followed them. This makes for 20 levels of dinosaur-infused, blocktacular action.

Yeah, sure, but the kicker? LEGO Jeff Goldblum. Yes, LEGO Jeff-effing-Goldblum! Mic drop.

Scrambles for mic – PCHPTTFCHCHPFFT! Damn, we weren’t up to word count.

Anyway, as we’ve recently come to expect from LEGO games, characters talk. This includes heaps of grabs from the movies, many of which sound really kinda weird, as they have background noises which imply that they were just ripped from the old VHS or summat. But with so many classic lines we’re probably just being pernickety.

Otherwise it’s the usual LEGO game, complete with drop-in/drop-out co-op and thematic twists such as Mr DNA being your handy helper as you progress and the big ones – playable dinos. Yep, and you can even make your own playable prehistoric remixes of them.

More kid-friendly than many LEGO titles, anybody who’s loved previous releases won’t be able to resist LEGO Jurassic World. Oh noooooooooooooooooooooooo!

take me back to the start...
