Zoo Tycoon 2 DS

Video Game Generation
1 August 2008
  • Summary: Despite the aforementioned design flaws, after putting in some time, I did enjoy Zoo Tycoon 2 DS . I found it hard to put down the DS, and discovered that I really did want to build the perfect zoo (ha ha). That said, unless your expectations are distinctly limited, the game’s many restrictions make it all but impossible to build the zoo of your dreams.
  • Pros: Despite a slow and annoying start, this sort of thing can become somewhat addictive over time., Lots of animals to choose from.
  • Cons: Graphics aren’t so hot – was that a lion, or a moldering head of lettuce?, Game limits the number of animals you can have at a certain time., “Zoo Keeper mode” is no fun whatsoever.

Zoo Tycoon 2 DS

Cosmos Gaming
4 April 2008
  • Summary: If you like animals a whole lot and you don’t mind putting some serious time or effort into a portable title, this is a must have title. Otherwise, it’s worth consideration if you simply like strategy games or “Tycoon” games in general.
  • Pros: -Nice amount of things to build., -Wide variation of animals, even including dinosaurs and yetis!, -New multiplayer mode adds some replayability., -Zoo Tycoon “on the go” = Awesome.
  • Cons: -Terrible music., -Most sound effects suck., -Stylus mechanics could have been better.

Zoo Tycoon 2 DS review (DS)

HonestGamers

  • Excerpt: It's easy to get sidetracked, since there's so much to do. For example, you might be asked to build cages for animals that all come from Africa. Of course, some of those critters can be pretty expensive, so you have to build up revenue by first showing less costly beasts to your happy patrons. Then along the way, you might start going overboard with the placement of vending booths and benches.

Zoo Tycoon 2 DS

The Gamers Temple

  • Excerpt: Tycoon games are released on the PC in a fairly steady stream, but only a few of those games avoid being forgotten within a few months after their release. One of the tycoon series that have managed to avoid slipping quickly into oblivion has been the Zoo Tycoon games. THQ now attempts to capture some of that zoo keeping magic on the DS with the release of Zoo Tycoon 2.

Zoo Tycoon 2 DS (NDS)

  • Conclusion: Zoo Tycoon 2 für den NDS ist ein nettes Spiel. Tierfreunde haben sicherlich Spaß daran, angehende Manager werden sich langweilen. Die Herausforderung (von den Symbolen abgesehen) ist keine sehr große, entspanntes Spielen dagegen garantiert und ein jüngeres Familienmitglied ist damit sicherlich besser bedient.
