The cinema release of Jurassic World is accompanied by another LEGO game, LEGO Jurassic World. It's more of the puzzle-based adventuring that LEGO has become famous for. Much like the LEGO The Lord of the Rings, this game takes you through the entire series of movies, from the 1993 original Jurassic Park to 2015's blockbuster starring Chris Pratt.
Play the complete Jurassic saga
In LEGO Jurassic World, you can choose the order you play through the saga - so you can start with the newest if you want. You can switch between levels as you please, and each movie is divided into five. The gameplay consists of relatively simple platforming in 3D LEGO worlds, featuring puzzles that you have to solve to advance.
The game has over a hundred characters you can play, each having unique abilities to help you beat the game. Chris Pratt voiced Owen, for example , can camouflage himself - allowing you to get closer to the dinosaurs than with other characters. Lauren Dern's Ellie can grow plants, and Park Rangers are the only ones who can get through certain gates.
Control dinosaurs too
None of this is new for a LEGO game, but LEGO Jurassic World does have parts where you'll control dinosaurs, either to help or hinder the humans on the island. The game also has a Dinosaur editor, letting you mix existing dinosaurs to create new ones, ideal for Free Mode.
Free Mode lets you roam the park, and do as you please with the various human and dinosaur characters in the game. Here you can spend more time looking for collectibles without the pressure of the campaign story. You'll get to play a T-Rex, take part in races, rescue workers, and more.
LEGO continues its run of fun
LEGO Jurassic World is really well made, but if you've played other games in the series, there's little new here. And some of the puzzling is started to feel a little tired. It is all very charming, though. LEGO still knows how to make a wry, amusing version of a famous movie that kids and adults can enjoy.
