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.
Summary: I bought this game for christmas for my nieces, but decided to try it out. It is really fun and interesting. I let them try it under the thought that it was my game. They loved it more than any other game. They can easily do the freeform game, even at ages 5-8.
Summary: You'll see on most of these reveiws that this game is bad. They're wrong. This game has its ups and downs. The ups are that: 1. it doesn't matter how big the exhibit is, no matter how big you make it, your animal will be happy. 2. You need to have a zookeeper for each exhibit.
Summary: I love zoo tycoon and it is a great game, but there is somthing they diddn't put in the instructions. The animals can escape, and it is very hard to fix the fence because the instructions don't tell you how. If the instructions told you how to fix the fence, the game would be perfect.
Summary: I have enjoyed playing Zoo Tycoon. It can be rather involved and sometimes slow when you're creating a zoo with all the requirements. However, the animals and layouts are interesting. I've found that it's easier to please the animals than the humans! This game is good if you have time on your hands.
Summary: Who wouldnt make a better game than this???I love it,because like all the other games in the Tycoon series,you get to run and construct a park!!!!Although the DS's screen is so small sized compared to the PC's,the grahics are fine!!unlike the PC' the game never frezzes!!!

Summary: I love the Zoo Tycoon series, raising and caring for zoo animals. I was thrilled to get a DS version to carry around. The implementation on the DS is a bit flawed, though. First, the basics. You are in control of a zoo, and have to set up exhibits so that the animals you care for are happy.
Summary: Building your first zoo is a complete blast, learning the ins and outs of the game. In your second game you build it bigger, with more knowledge of what exactly you're doing. In a third game you can experiment with a different terrain or climate and different animals.
