LEGO Jurassic World (2015, PS4) – 7/10 family action puzzle game review

LEGO Jurassic World (2015)

7/10

More of the same with the odd good gag (there’s a terrific Jaws gag in the The Lost World segment that I almost wish had been in the actual movie) but while the tinkle of collected LEGO studs and minifig animation remains as delightful as ever (the diving animation is hilarious the first time you see it and adorable every time after that and the bald caps are wonderful), the core gameplay sadly requires no thought or attention at all. This isn’t light puzzling; collect A, B, and C and take them to D isn’t a puzzle, it’s following a list of instructions. Unfortunately, fun, readable puzzles are time-consuming and difficult to come up with and TT Games are busy squirting a few of these out every year. The general absence of rewarding gameplay in the last few years of LEGO games should be hurting the franchise more but although the game part has all but disappeared the charm has not.

Slightly Mad Studios entirely maddening gamepad control in Project CARS (PS4, Dualshock 4)

Project CARS
Project CARS

Slightly Mad Studios have produced driving games with arguably the most intense and thrilling driving experiences available: Need for Speed: Shift, Shift 2: Unleashed, Test Drive: Ferrari Racing Legends and now Project CARS.

They all have something in common: nearly undrivable gamepad control out of the box. Amazingly, they are clearly aware of this and so consistently and uniquely offer a bewildering array of unexplained, sometimes cryptically named sliders that allow you to fine tune the controls to your preference.

Project CARS on PS4’s Dualshock 4 is no exception and it took around 18 hours of play before I finally got a controller setup I was happy with. Here it is:

Gameplay / Authenticity

  • Steering Assistance: No
  • Braking Assistance: No
  • Anti-Lock Brakes: Yes
  • Stability Control: Yes
  • Traction Control: Yes

Controls / Configuration

Go down and set this first:

  • Controller Input Mode: 2
  • Advanced: Off

then

  • Steering Deadzone: 0
  • Steering Sensitivity: 0
  • Throttle Deadzone: 0
  • Throttle Sensitivity: 5
  • Brake Deadzone: 5
  • Brake Sensitivity: 30
  • Clutch Deadzone: 13
  • Clutch Sensitivity: 45
  • Speed Sensitivity: 65
  • Controller Filtering Sensitivity: 65

It’s making the game most enjoyable again and if you’re looking for a gamepad setup for Project CARS I hope it helps.

Driveclub™ (2014)

8/10

Serious launch errors and delayed features (replays, photo-mode and weather) have undermined Driveclub and shapeless mobile game presentation will continue to undermine it but the thrilling experience of driving on spectacular, fun, original tracks make this a racing game to relish. A racing game isn’t likely to differentiate itself through a real world car list (GT6‘s Vision Gran Turismo and Red Bull X programme excepted) but through the track list. Driveclub‘s beautiful tracks are expertly designed so that they can be bounced around but accuracy will always give you lap time and sweet satisfaction. Driving them in a different class of car is like driving a new track; you discover new yumps and curves just because you’re travelling in a much faster car. It is entirely wonderful and helped by a choice of superb exterior and interior driving views. Even without the Challenge system and consistently working leaderboards (most of my times do not upload even though I’m connected to Driveclub‘s servers and earning Club points), Driveclub‘s outstanding racing and driving experience is enough to recommend it.

Classified 3+ by PEGI. The game is only suitable for persons who have reached the age of 3 or over.
