Summary: The Tycoon games have been around for some time. The strategy portion of the game. Holds up great. The graphics are straight from the pc and are hard to see on the ds . The sounds are suprisingly goood. All in all still a good game if a bit dated my wife loves it.
All in all, and okay version of Zoo Tycoon, but a good game in of itself.

Summary: A fun alternative to the original PC game, but nowhere near as comprehensive. A lot of the features MUST be unlocked; there's now way around it, and the gameplay is stunted by the DS controls, so the fun part of Zoo Tycoon (building an amazing zoo on a $500,000 budget, then locking the park-goers in and releasing the animals and reveling in the chaos and occasional causaulty) is somewhat lost. It almost feels like a chore to unlock new animals or fences.
