  • First Impressions Jurassic World Evolution: Complete Edition On Switch

    Our thoughts on a hands-off demo with developer Frontier

    It's rare that a game launches these days without a dreary, ill-defined subtitle hanging off the end, and that's doubly true of Switch ports. 'Definitive', 'Enhanced' and 'Special' Editions are ten-a-penny, and it generally takes some digging to find exactly what makes them so. Frontier's...
