Jurassic World Evolution - First Person Dino Tycoon?

So, I have been following this rather lightly since it was announced at E3 or whatever. I like dinosaurs, I like video games. A Jurassic Park video game has the potential to be very exciting business for me.

On the other hand, a lot of dinosaur games are the worst form of drivel.

So now that actual gameplay demos are out of Jurassic World Evolution, it seems like the game is shaping up to be a kind of hybrid between a park management or 'tycoon' game, and a first person game where you can take control of your RTS style units to tranq and transport the specimens yourself.

I don't know if that's the whole game, or if there's more hidden below the surface, but for now, it's intriguing enough on its own merits. Also, amusingly, Jeff Goldblum is reprising his role as Ian Malcolm. Fun times.

In all honesty, however, I was hoping for a first person shooter/survival game. There's not enough dino stuff in that genre that is good, or recent, or either.
