LEGO Jurassic World Review

 CHEATfactor Game Review by:  Joe Sinicki Reviewed on: PC 
 

Welcome to our CHEATfactor Game Review of LEGO Jurassic World. We review the game and then factor in how the available cheats affect the overall game experience. For better or worse, our reviews will help you decide whether or not to use cheats when playing the game.

There are a million cliches that I could write to describe how familiar LEGO Jurassic World really is. There's the one about reinventing the wheel or the dead horse, or things looking like ducks and talking like ducks, but what's the use? Whether you like LEGO Jurassic Park or not will depend simply on two things and they're just what you expect. Ask yourself, do you like Jurassic Park? Did you like the previous LEGO games? If the answer was yes to those questions, you'll have your answer. Unfortunately though, if the answer is no to either of those questions you'll likely see quickly how stale the formula has become. On the bright side, this is one of the best Jurassic Park video games ever created, but that's not saying much.

 
If this all sounds familiar it's because it is.

Much like previous entries in the LEGO series, LEGO Jurassic World takes you throughout each of the franchise's four installments, including the recently released fourth film...only you know much blockier. Break through pretty much everything you can find to solve puzzles and find secrets. If this all sounds familiar it's because it is. LEGO Jurassic World plays exactly the same as each of the previous games before it. What's worse is that there really isn't much that this game does better than any game before it - it just kind of exists. Games like LEGO Batman 2 (and three to a lesser extent) managed to craft a larger open world and expand upon the established cannon while still maintaining the gameplay the series is known for but while LEGO Jurassic World does that it doesn't even really try to do anything that the other games didn't.

I will say this though, I was impressed with how Traveler's Tales handled some of the franchises' bigger action sequences. The big T-Rex scene from the original Jurassic Park movie comes to mind, it's recreated in a frantic and fun chase scene that challenges what I thought a LEGO game could be. It's just unfortunate that these small bits of innovation are sandwiched in-between hours of the same gameplay that's caused the series to become this stagnant. Key moments like the end of The Lost World and the motorcycle chase scene from the new movie are given this treatment but I couldn't figure out if they were really that fun or if it was just that they were that different than the rest of the game.

While recent games in the LEGO franchise have included full voice acting, LEGO Jurassic World is the first one (at least that I can remember, correct me if I'm wrong) that has featured clips taken directly from the movie itself. It's a nice touch but it makes me miss the days where the LEGO characters didn't talk and classic moments from franchises' like Star Wars and Indiana Jones were almost mimed out.  Besides that the audio samples themselves aren't of the greatest quality. I played the game on both PC and Xbox One and on both they sounded like they were coming out of a tin can.

 
...filled with secrets and hidden paths...

In true LEGO game fashion though, the true allure of LEGO Jurassic World is in the replay value. Playing through any level in the game opens it up for free-play where you can use different characters that you've unlocked to try to open up new areas. It's still the same as the previous games but it's still a lot of fun, especially with a younger player helping out with you as player two. The game is filled with secrets and hidden paths, and like usual it's the most fun to play through them with a younger audience. There are also a ton of great references to the movies, like playing as Mr. DNA, which is great for long time fans of the franchise.

In a few months LEGO Dimensions will hit store shelves, complete with Jurassic Park content and it has the potential to do what this game could not - change the way you think about LEGO games. If you're desperately looking to play something Jurassic Park, or looking for something for a younger gamer, this may fill the gap but it won't last long at all, especially if they've played any of the previous games.

CHEATS USED: Infinite Health, Add Bricks
 
Like previous games in the series, LEGO Jurassic World really embraces cheats, and in an old school way none the less. There are cheats to unlock different characters and vehicles as well as cheats to unlock different playable dinosaurs. As if that wasn't enough there's the trainer from Cheat Happens which gives you access to an unlimited supply of bricks and infinite health though I'll admit I didn't use the later much since the LEGO series is so forgiving when it comes to dying.
