Thread: Refunded very disappointed Genesis fan

  1. #1

    Refunded very disappointed Genesis fan

    Wow just wow, words can describe my disappointment.

    I was hoping for a game that added to the gem op genesis with new skins and game engine.

    What we got was a hollow rushed mess that failed to add simple features like an island builder and the tools to create a Jurrasic world theme park.

    -No day/night cycle.
    -Lack of room on the pre rendered islands to build on.
    -Dull Dino ai.
    -Complete lack of depth and prevents creative play.
    -Attendees at your park lack any character remember the people walking around the park in -Genesis. They had personalities!
    -Slow research and fossil/DNA system. Felt like a free to play game with wait times. I at times looked for the speed up button thinking no one would force you to wait around like this.
    -Dull voice acting itís as if they played the game.
    -Slow research tree that prevents you from constructing the fences you want or buildings.

    I understand people that defend this game for we all waited aloooooong time for this but...... It is not the game we asked for just a rushed cash grab.

    All the best guys.

    Sorry to hear.

    I'd personally would have waited.. They just released a day ago. Because of my long history with Frontier games, and because the fact there is a feedback forum, i have no doubt that they will support, add, remove, buff, nerf, add content over time.

    Some patience is required though.

    For me personally, this game doesn't feel like a cash grab at all.. other big AAA developers got that one covered.

    Having played JPOG, I'd say this is similar but better in many ways. JPOG didn't really allow for much - short of creating Dinosaurs and releasing them. The singular element of JPOG that we did have that JWE doesn't is the create an island feature, but that's something Frontier could add in at a later date.

    Don't agree with the OP entirely; some things do stand out but they aren't deal-breakers for me.
    Sorry to hear you're leaving OP, maybe check back in a year and see what has changed? Perhaps it'll be more to your liking then.

    o/

    I understand your situation and the only thing I should say is purchase the game again when Frontier has updated and
    fix some/most of the known issues of the game.

    I don't remember, it's been some time, but please, enlighten/remind us how the guests of JPOG had personalities...?

    Where's the fun in rushing through everything? Why are people so impatient?

    Same as your above point regarding research and fossils/DNA.

    How does anyone even know they will go ahead and fix the issues ? I’m sorry but no one wants too wait another year before the game is fully finished the way it wasintended too. I’m loving it just now but I can see me getting tired of the same issues as above very easily down the line
    They need too start making a plan as too what they will fix and add soon

    I think we'll have a few of these threads - a lot of the threads before release were along the lines of "if they don't have X from JPOG them I'm out" and this is not intended to be a reskinned JPOG so it is going to be initially jarring as it is similar but different.

    Shame you are off OP, I initially thought the game was going to be shallow and short lived, but now I've had a few hours on Tacano / Muerte I'm more impressed and think there is replay value there.

    people really do hold JPOG up on such a pedestal don't they. It really wasn't as great as so many people are trying to make out

    from what I've seen so far, this game wouldn't need to many tweaks to make certain things appear as they did in JPOG. Like for instance guest names, thoughts and feelings. Guests in JPOG had all of these, except none of them impacted the gameplay - negative guest thoughts didn't prevent new guests from arriving or impact your star rating at all. Not to mention you had what, 200 guests in your park normally?

    I appreciate the argument is that JPOG was 2003 and this is 2018. But that's irrelevant next to the fact that so many people are screaming that this game is worse than JPOG without actually realising that JPOG wasn't as expansive and all encompassing as they thought anyway

    At least this game can (and will) be improved and expanded on in the coming months/years

    I agree with him, this game is a 2018 game and we expected this game to be significantly better than JPOG.
    The lack of day/night cycle helps to ruins immersion in a dinosaur theme park management game. Even though
    there might be improvement in somethings, it's not enough. JWE for people is suppose to be a fully updated and sequel
    to JPOG which meant it was suppose to be really better then it's predecessor. For me, this game is currently a improved
    2018 version of JPOG that needs some free updates to make the game fun.

    I think he's talking about the reports you got from visitors:I want to eat / I want to drink etc. This info is available via the business reports, but the JPOG ones were more 'human', so I think something like that would be nice.

    This reminds me of the IGN review, and there have indeed been a couple of times near the start of island building and after bad dino attacks when I felt like I was waiting for the $$$ to go up. In both those cases I realised it was because I had played badly, so I tried again and got better. If there was a 'fast forward' button it would reduce the peril from messing up, as you could just get a $1 profit and fast forward (well, assuming all your dinos didn't then die ). If you're waiting on research / fossils then I humbly suggest you were playing the starter island, and that you should have been managing the park while those were happening - multi-tasking is key to this game.

    well this is why you have a problem then isn't it. Number one, you expected. By 2018 gamers should know to never expect anything (even though a substantial number of people expect everything, and they expect it all yesterday)

    Number 2, why better than JPOG? Is this JPOG 2? no. If it were you'd have a case here, but regardless of whether gamers see this as a JPOG successor, and regardless of the fact that the devs say they drew inspiration from it, the fact remains this isn't a sequel to JPOG. It's its own game, with its own flow and own direction

    If people are so desperate for this game to a fully updated sequel to JPOG then I feel there's going to be a lot more disappointment to come. And who knows, maybe in 6 months or a year we'll all be back here saying "JPOG? pffft" or maybe we'll still be screaming at the devs to fix the fact that carnivores eat everything in sight regardless of their hunger. My only hope at the moment is that people stop seeing JPOG as this monolith beacon of hope that JWE for some reason must live up to and surpass

    Flash come on your defence off this game is unwarranted. You are happy with a game where they give you five small pre rendered islands. Compared to Genesis where you had the opportunity to design your own island.

    You forgot about the visitor personalities which you had to structure your park around to keep visitor recommendation up. You had thrill seekers, Dino nerds etc.

    You call me impatient for not having to sit and wait minutes for a bar to slowly complete? Why is a fast forward feature demanding??

    You like the nature of the Dino ai?

    I donít want to rush but at least let me build things like stronger fences on the get go rather then wait for research to slowly complete.

    As some of you guys said maybe the game can be fixed and developed so it has a more in-depth experience.

    Iíll wait till then and hopefully Iíll be rewarded in the later future.
