Zoo Tycoon DS

Game Over Online
21 November 2015
  • Excerpt: Tedium, thy name is Zoo Tycoon DS. I thought that Zoo Tycoon DS was a novel idea at first. What I remembered of the Tycoon series' gameplay from the PC seemed well-suited for play on the Nintendo DS. Why, then, is Zoo Tycoon completely counter-intuitive?

NDS Review - 'Zoo Tycoon DS'

WorthPlaying
10 November 2005
  • Excerpt: Genre: Strategy Publisher: THQ Developer: THQ Release Date: October 10, 2005 Ah, the tycoon game – staple of the PC gaming scene for years. Beginning with Railroad Tycoon oh so long ago, the list of games with the word "Tycoon" in the title has increased exponentially over the years.

Zoo Tycoon Review

  • Conclusion: The audio lends little to the atmosphere either. The main offering is a looping generic crowd noise which quickly becomes hypnotic, and this is interspersed with the odd flushing portaloo or breathless "Wow!" from a satisfied customer as he stands watching a polar bear swim about aimlessly.

Zoo Tycoon DS

  • Conclusion: Helaas is Zoo Tycoon DS dus niet wat het had moeten zijn. Blue Fang is er niet in geslaagd om de formule van de PC-versies om te zetten naar de Nintendo DS. Begrijp me niet verkeerd, Zoo Tycoon DS heeft zeker ook zijn goede punten.
  • Pros: Diep, vertrouwd management, bouw en onderhoudssysteem
  • Cons: Grafisch ondermaats, Vreemde besturing, Gebrek aan tweede savefile

  • Summary: Klassische Aufbau-Strategiespiele sind auf Handhelds eine absolute Rarität. Umso erfreulicher, dass Altron eine Umsetzung des PC-Titels ’Zoo Tycoon’ auf Nintendos DS gewagt hat. Ob das tierische Management-Spiel für unterwegs überzeugt, erfahrt ihr im Test.
  • Pros: niedliches Szenario, mangelnde Genre-Konkurrenz
  • Cons: verkorkste Steuerung, Mini-Grafik, kaum Sound

  • Summary: Simples Design, mäßige Präsentation, schlechte Steuerung: Für ´Zoo Tycoon DS´ sprechen nicht gerade viele Pluspunkte. Es mangelt an Alternativen, weshalb Fans des Genres zur Not reinschnuppern können. Aber ich empfehle eher, auf bessere Kost zu warten.
