Summary: In this computer game you learn to take care of the zoo animals. Once you have gained a certain level of stars you can get other animals...you first start with the monkeys. Game is a little slow for people who are used to more action. There is a certain fun to it watching and caring for the various animals in their zoo habitat. But it is not always clear exactly what you have to do to get the Stars....which can be a little frustrating to 5 year olds.
The World of Zoo is a great game for animal lovers

Summary: My daughter wanted this game after seeing someone play it in a YouTube video. This is an adorable animal care-taking game with great interaction. I have not played it significantly, but my six year old daughter is always asking me to come see what her zoo looks like and if I want to play with the tigers. She is so pleased and excited with the ease of control and game play. That makes dad happy.
Summary: Are you sick and tired of pleasing the almost impossible whims of guests? Wanna spend more time with the animals? Then WORLD OF ZOO is for you! It's just you and the animals you unlock over 50 different animals and if that's not enough for you then have a blast creating and customizing your own wild creature! My personal favorite is a shaggy red lion I named Aslan after the lion from Narnia. If you don't like this game then Zoo Tycoon 2 is your best bet.
Summary: I'm a 30 year old retired quake fan who has 3 daughters. 2 month ago I did some research for a good PC game for my children. It should focus on wild life animals and should reward taking care of them and have minigames. Well there was no game. Only dated and old graphics games... But some info about a game called World of Zoo. But that wasn't released yet. I couldn't believe that there was no game like this for the PC...
Summary: Hey guys and gals, I purchased World of Zoo for the Wii initially really loved it, spent way too much time customizing animals and whatnot. After about a month of playing it pretty much daily it eventually got old, but i have to say worth every penny. I think the only major turnoff for the Wii version is trying to used the wiimote for an extended period of time, just too annoying. Unwieldy.
Incompatible with certain video / direct x configurations and NO SUPPORT from the software producer

Summary: Only buy this if you want to gamble on whether or not your video graphics card and direct x drivers will support it, and if you won't be dissappointed by a complete lack of support by the software prodcuer THQ.
Summary: My four year old daughter loves this game! We have to help her out a bit at parts but she loves caring for her animals. I think her favorite part is getting to pick up the "poopies" the animals leave behind :) Great game for young kids, as long as you get the great PC price (I wouldn't pay the console price) because it is very simple and the graphics are simple also, but it's for kids and they love it.
Summary: This is a great game! At first it was just made for wii and Ds. But I was so happy when they said let's make this for computers! And Bam! I got it faster then you can say peanut butter and jelly sandwhiches! So If you want to try another animal computer software game. Then get zoo tycoon!
