Lego videogames aren't for everyone. In our time, we have come across a number of 'hardcore' gamers who think lego videogames are "far too childish" for them.

Sure the game lets us see things in a lego-esqe vision of the entire Jurassic world and its inhabitants, but what really stands apart is the ability to play as a dinosaur in the game as well. For that matter, the dinosaurs are classified into small, medium and large categories.

However, there can be a bit of confusion regarding the abilities of each dinosaur in the game, but this guide aims at providing you a clear picture of that. However, it is to be noted that while the small dinosaurs can be selected from the character menu, for others you'll need to activate Dino Spawner in the world.
