Review: Lego Jurassic World

Welcome to Lego Jurassic World! Okay, it’s not as quite snappy as John Hammond’s introduction to the ill-fated theme park in Spielberg’s classic 1993 movie. However the enthusiasm John had then is still applicable to this game. Lego Jurassic World is the latest in a long and seemingly never ending line of Traveller’s Tale Lego movie adaptations. Each are based on the same light puzzle and stud collecting...

We return to the world of folklore and monsters with The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, a more expansive take on the open world format than previous titles in the series.
