Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection reviews and comments

Friends of the old Games on the DS or the older PC Games will probably be disappointed. In one Hour and a few Minutes I felt like I was in a very bad Version of Planet Coaster With Zoo animals in it. The own really beautiful design of the Park was not possible, the Habitats were all given and could not be created themselves, only individual Extras could be installed in certain Places. The Controls were not really optimized for Mouse and Keyboard and therefore did not make playing intuitively but cumbersome. The Graphics are in a good Frame for the Price, but unfortunately it was. The Animals to Care and to Feed I emfpand I emfpund as cumbersome and not really meaningful in View of the "Late Games"-with hundreds of Animals that you are allowed to feed yourself. The Animals did not feel comfortable in some of their Habitats, even if all the Prerequisites were in place. For me personally, it hasn't been worth the almost €17s' and I've given the Game back again. I just lacked any Freedom to Design. But Whoever needs something to Make a holiday should come clear with this, but unfortunately not more. That's my personal Opinion, I don't want to attack anyone who likes the Game with it or do something mies. Just Convince yourself of the Game if you're not sure!

Even as a Teenager I was a Fan Of the Zoo Tycoon Games and had my Fun to recreate the Enclosures as faithfully as possible and to keep as many Animal Species as possible together in an Enclosure. Zoom management was never mine, so I was thankful that this was kept very simple in the Games. So, too, in the new Zoo Tycoon. Only the Enclosures can no longer be as free as in the Previous Versions. So just rushing the Lions on the Visitors can no longer. Still, I also play the new Zoo Tycoon For hours. The Graphics are very pretty, although the Textures are not the most high-resolution. I really like the Interactions among the Animals. Even the Buggies you can flit through the Zoo with are great. I didn'T think the very long Tutirial Series was so great. One could have done this much shorter. After a few Hours, I had my first Zoo at Maxlevel. There is still a lack of Fine-tuning, but I would have liked a few more Levels. Where we are at Levels. I think The level System around the Animals is great. I also like the new Enclosures, even if I can't design much anymore. The Price Performance Ratio is really good and I would recommend this Game to anyone who likes zoo Simulations. In Challenge mode, you always have something to do. Most tasks are not very challenging, though. It's a nice Game to have Fun and Watch.
