This Week’s Features
This week, Stefan had a look at the Jurassic Park Evolution DLC, Return to Jurassic Park which finally offers players the chance to go back to the iconic park and try their hand at running things. Meanwhile, Jim was impressed by Conqueror’s Blade, a medieval game that he hopes will inspire the Dynasty Warriors developers to up their game.
