Good "old" game

  • 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.

Very Fun And Challenging!

Squrriel Girl, Amazon

  • Summary: Zoo Tycoon Is A Very Fun Series! I Like Them All. The Ones I've Played Are Not Kiddie, Easy Or Simple Like I Thought It Would Be. They Are About Medium On The Hard Scale. Kids Under 8 Will Think Its To Hard To Contol And Understand. Its Hard To Make Sure The Animals And People Are Happy All The Time. Making Good Pens, Buildings And Shops Are Hard At First. And Sometimes Your Lions, Wolves, Zebra's Ect, Escape And Chase People Down! Haha!

Not like the comp. version

  • Summary: Do not buy this if you are wanting a game that is like the computer version. I am sure that once you get used to it it might be fun but it is not like the one for the computer so I was a little disappointed to say the least.

Great concept, some glitches.

  • Summary: This is a fun and challenging game, and my 9 year old loves the cute animals. However, there are some glitches it's always had; like when the animals who live in the water (dolphins, sea otters) have a baby animal, the animal always shows up swimming in a different enclosure; for example you might find a dolphin swimming through the zebra enclosure.

Zoo Tycoon for Nintendo DS

dee4texas, Ebay
10 February 2008
  • Summary: I purchased this game for my 9 year old grandaughter. She found the game interesting and enjoyed buying a house and getting to know the strange and interesting residents who lived in the community. She was not happy with the sarcastic and mean attitudes of the characters which left her with a negative feelings. She prefers playing her Nintendo Dogs game. I suspect this game would be more enjoyable for an older child.

Unfinished If You Ask Me...

Katie, Amazon
23 June 2006
  • Summary: Zoo Tycoon DS is a fun game, but there are SOME drawbacks. The graphics are'nt that great. You pretty much see little blobs of color for the animals, trees and bushes you can tell what they are. Unlike in the computer game the terrains don't blend together, giving it a soft REAL look. Instead it looks unrealistic and hard. Another thing that REALLY got under my skin was the fact that you can only have one zoo at a time.

A simplified version that keeps *most* of what's fun about Zoo Tycoon

Chris Walters, Amazon
20 October 2005
  • Summary: If you're a fan of Zoo Tycoon I, you'll find this as addictive as the PC/Mac versions. But the game has been simplified for the DS and I've noticed a few differences: - you can't read guest's thoughts - you can't change the price of refreshments - you can't customize the color of buildings - when adopting animals, you can't read the informative text about their natural habitats, diet, etc.
