Jurassic World Aftermath Part 2 review: More dinosaurs, more terror, more money


Source: Nick Sutrich / Android Central

At the very end of 2020, Oculus Studios released one of my favorite VR games of the year, Jurassic World Aftermath. While the game wasn’t without its flaws, it was one of the strongest examples of a game that made the most sense in VR. After all, hiding from dinosaurs – just raptors in the first game – is absolutely terrifying and wouldn’t give you that dread feeling without being in the world.

Nine months later, developer Coatsink delivered Jurassic World Aftermath Part 2, the direct follow-up to Part 1’s cliffhanger ending. Instead of being a free add-on, Coatsink charges $ 15 for the game – a $ 10 price reduction from Part 1 – much to the chagrin of some gamers who didn’t notice the pass’s buy button. extension when outputting the original.

In Part 2, not only will you complete the story that began with your unceremonious crash on Isla Nublar, but you will also meet more than just raptors this time around, solve new types of puzzles and visit fantastic environments. which are also beautiful (and not interactive) as the first part. It’s solid tracking that doesn’t change the basic dynamics but offers enough additions and challenges to keep you crawling on the ride.

Although you will need to own Part 1 and shell out $ 15 for Part 2, you won’t need to have a full save file to start Part 2. This is a huge improvement over some games like Star Wars: Tales from the Galaxy’s Edge, which requires you to have a full save file to start the DLC.

This is especially problematic on a device like the Quest or Quest 2 when several months pass between content versions, as save files are deleted when a game is uninstalled. It’s unreasonable to design a game without taking these platforming issues into account, and Coatsink was smart not to force players to replay Part 1.

As in the original, you play as repair technician Sam, who is stranded on Isla Nublar with only the injured Dr. Mia Everett locked in a safe house somewhere on the island. As you’ve barely escaped Blue and his companions at the end of the last episode, you finally learn that it’s Blue’s DNA you’ve been looking for all the time.

The turn of events that led to this reveal is recounted by none other than Jeff Goldblum, reprising his role as Ian Malcolm in the films. As always, Goldblum gives a superb performance – even if it’s just her vocals – and helps fill in some of the more mysterious parts of the story.

You will not need a complete Part 1 backup file; a godsend to anyone who uninstalled part one.

While I wasn’t a fan of Jurassic World movies, I love the universe and lore in general and have found myself enjoying spinoff series like Camp Cretaceous on Netflix. Aftermath’s story ends up playing out perfectly in this world and even takes a lot of clues and story clues from Cretaceous.

Towards the end of Part 1, things started to feel repetitive but ended just in time before I got tired of the mechanics. Part 2 adds a slight layer of complexity to the formula but doesn’t stray too far from the original mechanics.

The familiar feeling only lasts about 45 minutes until you step into what looks like truly newly created content, encountering other types of dinosaurs – i.e. not raptors – and types of completely different puzzle which are mechanically completely different from the Simon says early style puzzles.

Unlike Part 1, Part 2 changes the storylines as you go through the story.

Unlike Part 1, Part 2 changes the storylines as you move forward with the story. What was only fleeing raptors and pushing buttons turns into open locks, feeding a triceratops and narrowly escaping the clutches of a T-Rex as it towers over the messy mailroom.

The puzzles are also a bit more complex this time around. For example, to get packages to areas without power, you need to back up and follow the position of the cables, redirect the power to the right place, and flip the switches to move the cargo.

Pretty much every plan you follow gets thwarted at some point in execution, a tactic I knew was coming but interested me nonetheless.

Hope we get more stories this way in the future as the concept and mechanics are executed extremely well, and I can see the improvements in Coatsink’s formula in just nine months it took to make. the second part.

A number of thoughtful accessibility options make it easy for a wide variety of players to enjoy the game.

I also admire the work Coatsink has put into the game’s accessibility options. Crouching for most of the game made my neck hurt, but clicking the right stick virtually lowered me. gave a pause. It also allows for seated play, which is not always possible or comfortable with all VR games.

While Part 2 did a great job of mixing the puzzles together and adding a lot more environmental variety, there’s no denying that most of the environments are just works of art to walk through. Like in a museum, you’ll admire the visuals as you walk through each section, but you’re not allowed to touch, well, anything that isn’t part of the story.

Like a museum, you can look and admire the surroundings but often cannot touch things.

Some mechanics are also a bit simple for my taste. For example, there is no inventory management, and you won’t even need to remember the keystrokes as the game simply paints them on the wall above when you learn the combo from it. ‘an email or other part of the dialog.

Simplicity will definitely be a plus for some people, especially if they’re too stressed out by the dinosaurs lurking around every corner. Still, I would like to see more interaction and less grip in future installments.

As a Jurassic geek, I would have loved to see even more dinosaurs throughout the adventure.

One of my complaints is that I am a Jurassic geek and wanting to see more of the island than the game allows. One marketing campaign in particular made me think we were going to see some of the more unique experiences on Camp Cretaceous, but, alas, we weren’t. Maybe in the future?

Jurassic World Aftermath Part 2 is a direct continuation after the cliffhanger of Part 1 ends. As with any good Jurassic story, there is both finality and ambiguity, leaving plenty of room for side stories or continuations into the future. . Jurassic World may be a wreck, but it’s clearly worth talking about.

As the novelty of the formula wears off, developer Coatsink has done a great job introducing several new puzzles and gameplay elements that tweak the base gameplay enough to keep players interested. I would have liked to see a bit more of the other dinosaurs in the story, but I was happy that they were there to interrupt the action a bit more. As it stands it was another great 5 hour adventure that kept me glued to my helmet the entire time.

At the end of the line : Jurassic World Aftermath Part 2 ends the story of Part 1, as you might expect, but it also adds new puzzles, more environmental variables, and a few new dinosaurs to keep the action fresh. Best of all, you won’t need to have a Part 1 save file completed to start Part 2.
