Gigantosaurus Nintendo Switch Game Review


For Christmas, my five-year-old son got a Nintendo Switch and plays on it for an hour most days, especially now that we are home during the pandemic. He currently only has two Mario games for his switch so when we were offered to review the new Gigantosaurus game (which is released next week) I knew he would be happy. Gigantosaurus is based on the Disney jr animated series of the same name, which is super popular with dino mad children. The game is available on the Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, PS4 and PC and you can download the game to your device, perfect when we are all at home.

The dinosaur characters - Rocky, Tiny, Mazu and Bill go on an adventure and the players can explore the prehistoric world of Gigantosaurus completing tasks along the way. You can race to the next adventure in your dino race cars which was my sons favourite part. Up to four players can play the game at once, meaning that the whole family can join in. We also liked that when you start the game you can select 'normal' mode or 'easy' - perfect for younger players. 

My children found the game easy with a few tricky parts that frustrated them but once they got the hang of it they started to enjoy it. They really liked the graphics and that it was based on a TV show that they were familiar with and that they could select which character they wanted to be from the show. 

We were originally meant to be hosting a dinosaur party with our friends but obviously, that is not going to happen at the moment but my own children enjoyed playing the game and taking part in the activities we were provided with. We have kept most of the goodies we were sent to share with friends when it is safe to do so again. 

If you have a little dino fan who likes Gigantosaurus then I am sure they will enjoy playing the new game whilst spending extra time at home over the coming weeks and it is also a great game for a family games night. You can download the game for the switch online at
priced at £34.99 from Friday 27th March 2020. The game is suitable for ages 3+.

Disclosure - I was sent this game and a box of products in exchange for this blog post and have also been compensated for my time.
