5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of Improvement November 22, 2004
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was going to resist getting Zoo Tycoon 2, having recently being disappointed by the update of Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 (which is NOT an improvement). I am, however, a simulation/strategy game addict--and I am happy to report that I don't regret giving in to the impulse to buy Zoo Tycoon 2.

The original version of this game was not one of my favorites. I found changing little squares of landscape and mending fences rather tedious for long term game play, not to mention only having income from entrance fees and food/drinks keeping my bank account in a permanent decline, and visitors loosing interest in the exhibits too quickly.


* 3D Animation - I tend not to care much about graphics in general, however these graphics are quite well done, and you can zoom in quite close to observe the animals. You can also click on any animal and find out what it's doing at any given moment.

* Photo Safari - In certain scenarios and challenge games, you can earn awards by taking pictures of specific events. Switching to a digital camera style view, you may have to take a snapshot of two animals, or an animal running, etc.

* Interactive Mode - You can switch to guest view, and walk around your park, getting a close-up view. Further, you can play caretaker and clean up after animals (and guests), clean animals and fill food dishes yourself.

* Donations/Income - Guests continue to visit all exhibits as the game progresses, and contribute donations at each exhibit. The more interesting the exhibit, the more they donate (they like biomes: exhibits in which the terrain, plants, rocks and animals are all appropriate to one another).

5.0 out of 5 stars This game is Awesome... November 15, 2004
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I love Zoo Tycoon 2. I played the original & the expansions & loved them as well but Zoo Tycoon 2 is so much better. I really like the ability to build diagonically. The zoo looks much better with this ability. I also find it really neat that you can go into Zoo Guest Mode which allows you to walk throug the zoo & see what everything looks like from the guest's point of view. The Photo Safari Mode is neat also. It allows you to go into the exhibits & take really good pictures of the animals. Did I mention that the animals are a lot more realistic & easier to please? This game is really awesome. I highly recommend it to anyone.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Game July 31, 2006
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I love "tycoon" games of all sorts. Zoo tycoon 2 and its expansion packs are great and most of the scenerios are fun (if not a little time consuming). You can zoom in and walk around the zoo like a guest as well as save yourself some money (in the game of course) by doing the zookeeper and maintenance tasks yourself.

This is a great, educational game for kids. They'll learn about many different animals and conservation efforts. It's also the sort of game that you could sit down and play with your kids.. help them out with planning and ideas and read about the different animals with them.

I'm also happy to see that Microsoft is donating money from the sales of this game to the World Wildlife Fund.. all the more reason to buy it :)

2.0 out of 5 stars I wasn't expecting to be bored...but I am. February 11, 2005
By Lisa H.
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
While the updated 3D graphics are very cool, I'm actually quite bored after playing for 3 days. The selection of animals, buildings, etc. is very small, even in freeform where everything is available and money is unlimited. I am ready to go back to playing ZT complete collection.

First, The paintbrush tool that just paints a swath of appropriate land type, vegetation, rocks, etc. is cool, and takes all the guesswork out of making the habitat correct for the animals...but it also takes the challenge as well. I'm basically just sitting watching my zoo animals wander around their perfect habitat while my zookeepers make a beeline for the nearest bench every chance they get. What fun is that?

Second, there is no way to tell if what you are doing is having a progressively positive/negative impact on the animals or guests; they are either happy or not. If they're unhappy, there's no clear way to figure out what's bothering them and how to fix it. E.g., the animal has a low social rating... Huh? Does he need more animals or fewer animals? A mate? A keeper? All the other animals in the exhibit are deliriously happy. Who knows? That's not fun.

Also, both keepers and animals regularly fail to figure out how to reach feeding bowls, etc. that are right in front of their noses. The keepers are even bigger idiots in this game than in the first. I'm so tired of all the "can't reach" error messages I want to scream.

I think the thing that bugs me the most is that the animals often kill their mates, for no discernable reason. Then, you can actually sell the dead carcass for money! Why was that necessary? Eeeewww!

On the other hand, this would be a great game for a 7-year old.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zoo Tycoon 2 rocks! September 15, 2005
A Kid's Review
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is exellent. I loved the first Zoo Tycoon, but I love this one better. It's even better than Zoo Empire. You can pretend to be a guest and walk around your zoo in Guest Mode. I loved that but my favourite feature is being able to release animals back into the wild! It's worth every penny!
