 Our top pick of the week, starting June 11?

Jurassic World Evolution
12/06/18

With the latest film coming out in the Jurassic Park franchise it looks like the story is getting ready to leave the premise of the park in the past. Unfortunately I’m sure a lot of people can attest to the park being the strongest part of the original movie.

Jurassic World Evolution has us covered, letting us make sure that we get right what John Hammond got so very wrong—or taking it to the extreme and causing mayhem with intent instead of ineptitude.
