LEGO JURASSIC WORLD
TT Games/WB Games
Jurassic Park is frightening in the dark, all the dinosaurs are
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
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
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
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!
