Very fun game!
on August 30, 2013
Zoo Tycoon 2: Ultimate Collection is much better the original Zoo Tycoon. The graphics are very nice, but if you have an older computer, it may not run as smoothly. I would recommend at least 2 gigabytes of memory and 2 gigabytes of hard drive space to have it run well. A newer version of Windows (such as Windows 7, 8 or 10) would be good too. Internet is only needed for the optional downloadable content.
Zoo Tycoon 2: Ultimate collection comes with four expansion packs along with the original game: Extinct Animals, Marine Mania, African Adventure, and Endangered Species. There are also three modes of play: Campaign mode, Challenge mode, and Freeform mode.
They have added lots of new features in Zoo Tycoon 2, such as Jeep trails you can ride on, sky trams, powerful terrain shaping tools, and you can even uncover fossils in your zoo! There is also a zoo guest mode where you can walk around your park, empty trash cans and stuff, and go into the exhibits and replenish food, fill the water troughs, and clean the animals (this is useful when your zookeepers aren't doing their job very well).
They have also added things such as: ATM machines, diagonal and elevated pathways, a staff center, pony rides, recycle bins, binocular stands for watching the animals, drinking fountains, bouncy houses, and much more.
There are 78 different zoos to choose from, and 130 different animals! There are zebras, giraffes, tigers, monkeys, bears, lions, panthers, horses, elephants, aardvarks, whales, sharks, koalas, beavers, dinosaurs, and a whole lot more.
