Crash-landing on Isla Nublar after the fall of the Jurassic World theme park, players find themselves trapped in an abandoned research facility when their mission to recover valuable information goes disastrously wrong.

Jurassic World Aftermath Collection Review Cons:

  • Cannot rebind controls.
  • Built for VR and it shows with little additional support for using a controller and no VR.
  • No way to set run to toggle.
  • Slow-paced.
  • The real tension of dinosaur encounters is lost without VR.
  • A short game as it can be clocked in a couple of hours.
  • The actual gameplay is very linear.
  • No way to bring up your current objective so if you miss it you are out of luck.
  • Half the time it feels like you are just looking for a button prompt.
  • With no jump or vault actions, it drags out simple sections.
  • Still has all the comfort settings for VR in the game like slow fade-in on deaths and menus not instantly transitioning.

It’s always a big ask when you port a game over from VR and put it on a console. Here the game looks good with a cel-shaded almost comic book-style approach, the game plays out in first person and you use the sticks to look and move around. With simple puzzle elements, the biggest part of the game is actually hiding and going past loose dinosaurs. The problem is that outside of VR the game doesn’t have as much tension, the gameplay loop of hitting buttons and crouching through holes is just boring, it’s fine in VR but not without it. They have left comfort mechanics in the game and it’s just another way that the game likes to constantly remind you that it’s meant to be a VR game. If you want a low-effort stealth game have at it but otherwise seek the game out on VR.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
