Summary: I ordered this for Christmas so I would have it to give to my brother who loves these games. I bought a used/like new copy so it came opened. Interested since I liked the first DS game, I decided to play it and see what it was about. Of course I was going to play it! I've got a month until it needs to be wrapped so why not? What I discovered was that this game is a complete let down.
Summary: This product is awful. It does not work and there is no support in the documentation. The support is simply not there - I tried emailing a couple of times...it was like no one in this company cares about customer experience. My daughter purchased this with her pocket money and I felt very bad that the company cheated her. Consider about the company's zero-support policy before purchasing this game.
Summary: I always loved the orginal Zoo tycoon on the computer. So when I saw Zoo Tycoon 2 on the DS, I picked up a copy thinking I could have the same amount of fun, only portable. I was wrong. The game is nothing like the original. It's much simpler, and you can't really build impressive zoos. In the orginal game, you hire workers to care for the animals. You can still do that in the DS game, but I still found myself trying to care for the animals.
