- ZOO TYCOON COMPLETE COLLECTION
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
What makes Zoo Tycoon Complete Collection especially compelling is its inclusion of the expansion packs Marine Mania and Dinosaur Digs, so you can add dolphin shows to your zoo, or even a T-Rex or wooly mammoth. Be sure to maintain those worn-out fences, though, or you could have big trouble on your hands.
Zoo Tycoon is a great game for kids because while they'll have terrific fun crafting the zoo of their dreams, they'll also get a reality lesson about what customers want, and how their choice of expenditures ultimately affect the bottom line (that nacho stand sounds tasty, but is it making money?). If you've made a good zoo, customers will be happy, and the money will roll in. And it's also the kind of game grown-ups can enjoy, because there are so many possibilities. Be wary, however, of trying to sneak in 20 minutes of play before bedtime because you'll probably stay up a lot longer than you planned. (Ages 7 and older) --David Horiuchi
- Great game for kids and parents to play together.
- Endless replay possibilities
- Educational value in its animal information and "real world" economics
- Sometimes tiresome trying to get an animal's exhibit just right
- How much free time do you have to spare?

A quick overview: In the original Zoo Tycoon, you are in control of a Zoo building scheme, similar to other "tycoon" games on the market. The original game had many animals and features, and allowed you to solve problem scenarios and create you own free form Zoo. However, I thought the original Zoo Tycoon had rather limited selections for the money.
In the first expansion pack, Zoo Tycoon Dinosaur Digs, they went a little way to solving the limitations by giving you Dinosaurs to create your own version of "Jurassic Park". It also added (finally!) some themed concessions to make your Dino park even more of a time travelling adventure. But, it too was fairly expensive for an expansion.
In the second expansion pack, Zoo Tycoon Marine Mania, "Sea World" type attractions were added, along with some new theming concessions and other things that went a long way to solving the problems of the original limits of the game.
For a long while, some other additions were only available online. Several Endangered animals and some weird ones like Yeti and the Loch Ness Monster took quite a bit of download time to add to your park creation capabilities.
But now, in Zoo Tycoon Complete Collection, we have a truly complete collection. Not only is the original Zoo Tycoon included, but the Dinosaur Digs expansion, the Marine Mania expansion, =and= all of the previously only available by download material.
The added feature of being able to see a few facts about your animals in a special window could make this game an educational experience.Read more ›
The starter game isn't as much fun without the marina mania pack. The dinosaur digs pack is sort of bare bones, pardon the pun. All together it's given us a good year of entertainment.
Unfortunately, I'm a grad student who works, so I must STRONGLY recommend thinking before you buy this game--I've lost so much sleep because of it and I think I'm beginning to creep out my girlfriend.
But, if you've got time to play a cool game, then I highly recommend this one. I don't even play any of the scenerios--its too much fun just playing the freeform. Also, you can get a boatload of downloads to further your demise as a zoo dork.
There are two different types of game to choose from:
Scenario Games: These start you out with a predetermined lot size on which to build your zoo, and a set amount of money with which to do it. In addition, you are given a list of specific goals and a time period in which to complete them. These games end when the time is up, and you either win or lose (though you can continue working on your zoo after this point just for fun, if you wish). There is a long list of different scenarios to choose from, so it takes quite a while to run out of options (I still haven't played even half of them).
Freeform Game: If you'd rather just build your own personal dream zoo, and not worry about reaching fixed goals, you may want to play the freeform version instead. This is what I usually prefer. You can choose the lot you want to build on, specifying its size (small, medium, large) and type of terrain (grassland, desert, mountains, arctic, etc.), and also select how much money you want to start with (anything up to $500,000).Read more ›
