Great for any age unless scares of dinos

Like most other games, the violence is non-realistic and the characters just break into LEGO pieces. The gameplay is simple enough for most ages. Kids that are scared of dinos will obviously be slightly scared with this game.

The interesting thing about Lego games is that though they rarely change much from one to the next, they remain perpetually popular among children. Older kids may grow tired of these games' repetitive nature, but there's always a fresh batch of younger players who get to experience their charms for the first time. And make no mistake: Lego Jurassic World is just as charming as any of the licensed Lego games that preceded it. It captures the excitement and vibe of the films extremely well; many scenes even pull dialogue straight from the movies. Smashing apart everything around you remains as satisfying as ever -- as does figuring out the game's nearly endless stream of little puzzles by applying the right character's skill (Ellie can dive into huge piles of dino poop, and Lex can scream so loud she shatters windows) or building a tool from scattered bricks that saves the day.

Unfortunately, as with other Lego games, this one suffers its fair share of technical trouble. Getting stuck behind an object or suffering a freeze-up is never fun. And, aside from getting a chance to control some powerful dinosaurs, there really isn't much new added to the formula (it'd be wonderful if the developers could figure out a way to give players a little more creative control over the items they build). But none of this will stop younger players -- especially those who've fallen in love with the films -- from having a blast. Lego Jurassic World is an easy recommendation for families with little Jurassic Park enthusiasts.
