Collect DNA and materials from the dinosaurs you encounter on your excursions, trade them for Engrams at your base camp, then use those Engrams to craft helpful items. During your excursions throughout the park, you may be lucky enough to collect a rare dinosaur egg. Take good care of it until it hatches, and you’ll be able to raise your own dinosaurs from hatchlings to adulthood. Some dinosaurs may even grow to be large enough to ride! Defend Vital Technology: Dinosaurs aren’t the most docile creatures - band together with other ARK Park visitors to defend important research outposts and valuable technology from rampaging dinosaurs!

Ultimately then, fun can be had with ARK Park , but in small doses. People will be drawn to it for different aspects of its gameplay, but on the whole they don't quite gel. I get it — ARK is a survival game that's heavily reliant on crafting, but the inclusion of crafting here just feels like an unnecessary hindrance.
ARK Park had potential in its premise, but everything is so badly executed that all this evaporates incredibly quickly. There's content for 30 minutes if you can put up with the many flaws, but honestly, we wouldn't advise even trying, especially not for the asking price of £44.99. It sounds like a dream to be immersed in a Jurassic Park-esque world via the medium of VR, but ends up being a nightmare.
The gathering is grindy, the crafting unrewarding, and the combat boring and repetitive. Not to mention as a VR game it suffers, too, as the controls are awkward, plus the price of the game is too high and the visuals lacklustre. The developer was so preoccupied with whether it could, that it didn't stop to think if it should.
