The Lego series of video game adaptations has come a long way in recent years. While many count them as guilty pleasures, I straight up admit to enjoying them more than I did when I first gave their movie franchise adaptation line a chance. While the Lego Star Wars line-up didn’t tickle my fancy too much, once I played the Lego Indiana Jones games, I was hooked. The cute Lego humour, build-it-to-solve-it gameplay and the obsessive stud and collectible gameplay has become a bit of an obsession of mine since. While the quality of the games has fluctuated with each Lego movie adaptation, they have been nothing less than simple fun, and in an industry stuffed to the brim with massive open world games, requiring hundreds of your hours to complete, that is exactly what you need.
Lego Jurassic World originally launched on June 12, 2015, to coincide with the movies release, on PS3, PS4, PS Vita, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PC, WiiU and 3DS. The Nintendo Switch version launched late last month, making it rather late to the party.
However, that lateness does bring with it some benefits. First off, the Switch version comes packaged with all of the game's DLC - three packages comprised of character extras, variants and vehicles. Two, more games in the Switch’s library isn't a bad thing, especially when they have dinosaurs for the younger kids and, finally, you’re looking at a title that won’t tax the Switch’s hardware at all.
In handheld mode, the game is rather pretty, especially in places with rain, mud and puddles.
The customisation options are a nice touch even if they’re limited to only the dinosaurs that you can unlock, of which there aren’t a significantly large amount.
