Jurassic World: Evolution: Complete Edition is the complete edition of the 2018 economic strategy, which was created by the Frontier Developments studio. The team founded by David Braben has in its portfolio such games as the highly popular Elite: Dangerous and the RollerCoaster Tycoon series, and above all Planet Coaster, which lends this production a lot of solutions and gameplay engine. Jurassic World: Evolution: Complete Edition includes a main game, complemented by three role-playing add-ons (Return to Jurassic Park, Claire's Sanctuary, Secrets of Dr Wu), four packs of dinosaurs and a collection of Raptor Team skins for the Velociraptors known from Jurassic World films.
Jurassic World: Evolution takes place in a universe created for the Jurassic Park and Jurassic World films. The game takes the players into the near future, when mankind has managed to develop a technology that allows the DNA of dinosaurs to be recreated from preserved samples and thus brought back to life. This led to the creation of the title Jurassic Park, a kind of zoo where people can see prehistoric reptiles with their own eyes.
Feature DLC develops the game with new threads. In Return to Jurassic Park we have the opportunity to return to the island known from the original 1993 Jurassic Park film, working under the watchful eye of Dr. Alan Grant, Dr. Ellie Sattler and Dr. Ian Malcolm.
The add-on entitled Claire's Sanctuary takes place on the coast of Isla Nubla, where the Mount Sibo volcano is about to erupt. Our task is to save dinosaurs from a disaster. In the third and last DLC, Secrets of Dr. Wu, we visit previously unavailable locations, including a research facility where studies on hybrids are underway. Together with the doctor we learn more about the tools designed to control dinosaurs and discover new genes.
In Jurassic World: Evolution the player takes on the role of the manager of such a park. The list of his duties includes not only presenting the dinosaurs to a wider audience, but also taking care of the entire tourist-related structure and providing them with a number of side attractions, such as a souvenir store. Of course, the safety of the visitors is also important - during the game we have to keep an eye on our charges, because they can get out of the catwalks and pose a real threat to people. Since you have to pay for everything here, every player's action should focus on getting rich as quickly as possible.
The funds obtained can be invested in further development of the park - the necessary condition to maintain interest at a satisfactory level is primarily the acquisition of new species of prehistoric creatures, which may require not only larger homesteads, but also staying in strictly defined conditions.
Jurassic World: Evolution: Complete Edition boasts three-dimensional graphics, adapted to the technical capabilities of the Nintendo Switch console. The graphic looks worse than on the PC and PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The authors, who have carefully reconstructed the look of dinosaurs, had to make some compromises in the new version (e.g. lower resolution, less detail).
In addition, the version on Nintendo Switch features, among other things, a predetermined limit for dinosaurs (there may be 100 at a time). This restriction was necessary to be able to offer players the same size of parks as in other editions of the game.
