Summary: My 12 year old son recently found his DS after years of not having it. He couldn't find any of the games he used to have for it and asked me to buy a new one. He chose Zoo Tycoon. He's way into the fighting military style games (CoD, Homefront, etc.) so I wasn't sure he'd enjoy this; but he did. It holds his attention when we're driving or out somewhere where he's bored. It's a very cute game. The fact that it was only $4 was awesome also!
Summary: I have had it for a long time now. I loved playing it and it kept me entertained for quite awhile. ON FREEPLAY: It's a good game but after playing it for a certain amount of time (depends how much you play it) it get boring because there's not much stuff to earn and you earn it fast. There's not enough room to make an exhibit for every animal even when you choose the largest location. You pretty much never run out of money if you set it to the highest it goes (500,000).
Summary: Controls: These controls use the touch screen at some times and the buttons others. Pretty good mix of both. Interface: Perfect. Sound: Good enough. Graphics and Animation: Terrible graphics I think. You can't tell the difference between anything. The penguin looks like a polar bear and the giraffe looks like a lion. This aspect of the game makes one of my least favorite ever becasue everything is so pixiley.
Summary: This game is kinda hard I think for that I am still sorta playing it and I got it 3 years ago.. The beginning was easy of course but I 'm stuck on the second to last challenge I pray every time I have to start over that I get all the requirements and its hard. You have to make sure the guest are happy and the animals and I m usually a point off from that.
Summary: This game is similar to Zoo Empire. Alot of fun but takes some getting use to. You are given an empty zoo and you create the zoo the way you want it. You choose the animals and create their surroundings, hire staff, design landscape, and build food courts and other buildings for the visitors to expierence.
Summary: Zoo Tycoon for Nintendo DS/DS Lite is very fun and I highly recommend it to animal lovers or Zoo Tycoon fanatics. I suggest buying it cheap on eBay rather than paying extra at a game store. The graphics are very close to that of the computer Zoo Tycoon. My favorite thing about it is the Freeform game where you create your own zoo starting with $100,000. With the cheat you can even get the unicorn which is cool. There are scenarios with objectives you can also play.
