Product Description

From the towering giraffe to loveable meerkats, in Zoo Park: Run Your Own Animal Sanctuary you’ll care for over 30 animals from all four corners of the Earth including lion, gorilla, coyote, puma, moose, raccoon, wolverine, snow leopard and the black bear.

Can Zoo believe it!?

Like any modern animal care facility in the 21st Century, you will need to run a professional programme of rescue, rehabilitation, research and conservation to promote understanding and care of all the animals under your control.

Of course, each animal type has its own list of requirements in terms of habitat, nutrition and care. You will need to address the individual needs of each one in order to run a successful and ethically sound zoo park.

Saying goodbye to the animals you have raised from new-borns is hard but as your sanctuary continues to grow, there will be plenty of new animals requiring rescue which you will be given the option to accept or not depending on your available resources at that time. Be careful however. Expanding your sanctuary means that your workload will increase accordingly and you’ll need to be able to make sure your facility runs like clockwork in order to gain the all important popularity points from your visitors which determine the level of your success.

As well as animal care, another main task of Zoo Park is constructing a well thought out facility to best meet the requirements of both the animals and your visitors. You must construct the correctly sized habitats for each of your animals. A Koala bear won’t appreciate sharing an enclosed space with a tiger for example. Remember that each animal will also have several requirements which you’ll need to consider when mapping out your zoo park. Some species will favour a large pool of water to happily swim about in whilst others will enjoy a large amount of plant life to themselves. You’ll also need to consider their diet and how much space each animal will require. You’ll then need to hire staff to help you run the park.

As well as keeping your animals happy, healthy and rehabilitating them into the wild, the hoards of visitors will also need to be accommodated by constructing pathways so that they can see your animals, building toilet facilities, constructing cafes and ice-cream stands and a gift shop.

Can you rescue, rehabilitate and research your animals to promote animal welfare education whilst constructing the ultimate zoo park to keep all your charges and visitors happy?

    Zoo Park has a very interesting design choice which makes the game easy to navigate. there are a great amount of animals that you need to research and the size of the zoo that you can eventually expand into is absolutely massive! The game contains a small tutorial but after that it's a test to see just how large your zoo can become.

    There are several challenges and even missions for you to undertake. sometimes you'll be asked to build a suitable habitat for an animal that is need of your assistance. completing these challenges grants you a new animal and you can acquire them from now on.

    It has a sense of strategy to the game as you build different features to make your visitors and animals happy. There are a lot of statistical options and it's just great fun to play.

    Zoo Park has the potential to be an interesting game experience. The aim is to research, construct, staff and run a conservation zoo for a variety of animals. The tutorials about the animals are interesting and informative, allowing you to research them and try to meet their needs. The interface however is very clunky, and everything happens extremely slowly. It is difficult to get the cursor over the relevant icon, and when you click anything it takes an age for the required menu to pop up or action to occur.

    Apart from that the screen looks ok, with a decent representation of the zoo you have built, and the animals, staff and visitors. It's informative and educational, but loses out on fun points due to the slow interface. 3 stars.

    Zoo Park is quite good and if you've ever played an animal sim game before you'll know what to expect. That's it's only downside actually, it's no different to any other zoo game.

    It's easy to install, the controls are easily mastered, the graphics are good and it's fun. What more could you ask for? Well, that all depends on whether or not the pc is your only means of playing an animal sim. If you have other consoles and/or game devices you'll maybe have played this type of game before and with this one you won't be getting anything different to what's out there. The only real difference is the price. It's maybe a little bigger in scope because of the pc engine behind it but as far as gameplay goes it's much the same.

    On the one hand it's a budget pc game, which is good. Compared to other pc games the price is reasonable. Compare it to other zoo park games though and the price difference puts this at the higher end of the market.

    If a pc is your only means of playing a game like this then I'd say go for it, it'll keep you occupied for a while tending to animal's, park-goers and general park maintainance and the cost is reasonable for a pc game. If you have other consoles I'd consider buying a zoo sim for that instead as you'll probably find them cheaper. It's not the sort of game you'll play for days on end from start to finish though. It's just not that kind of game. Dipping in and out and adding to your park from time to time is how I get the most out of games like these.

    Bottom line is this - It's fun and depending on which side of the fence you're on it's reasonably priced too. It's an ok game which can be dipped in and out of as the mood takes you and is more suited to the long-haul style of gameplay rather than the 'camped for days to complete it' style.

    As with all Excalibur games the controls could be more polished, but that is not what lets this game down. The problem for me is the distinct lack of animal magnetism.
    You cannot zoom in close enough to get a good look at the animals. The only time you hear an animal is if you click on one in an enclosure, then you get about a millisecond of representative noise.

    The other big problem is it takes a long investment of time to get a park started, and to work out what is going on. To be able to buy a new type of animal you need to spend time researching it and each individual animal costs you accumulated prestige. This restricts you to being able to do very little for a long time.

    There is a bias towards American and African animals. There are no specifically European animals, but you can have some reindeer as lone representatives of the continent.

    Unlike some theme park games you are given a reasonable amount of information about what needs improving. Some things I continued to be unsure about, such as what the behaviour of the zoo, but it might be explained somewhere.

    The animals and visitors appear to demand a lot of trees an shrubs, which creates a crowded appearance which I didn't find very natural of pleasing to the eye.

    If you are looking for a game to occupy a child during the school holidays, that doesn't involve blasting monsters, then Zoo Park might be worth a try. However I think older children and adults are likely to find it the game play too inflexible to keep their interest.

    Zoo Park's genre comes under different labels. Scroll through the Amazon reviews and you will find it described variously as a Management, Sim or Tycoon game.
    It's all of the above, a generic but very playable game where you manage resources, time and money (or `Popularity points' as the in- game currency is described) to build a successful Zoo which keeps its visitors happy, and cares for its animals and even rescues and rehabilitates them.
    You begin with a swift tutorial that starts you with some of the basics; how to build a habitat for an animal, select the correct plants, features and food for it, and how to build paths, facilities and features for your zoo. You are then launched on your zoo development career, as you research new animals and build habitats for them, research on the welfare of your existing animals, and develop your facilities and features. You must balance your development so you have a healthy stream of popularity points to keep your animals fed and watered, and are able to hire the staff and build the facilities and features you need.
    As you progress you will be given a series of missions and achievements to complete, which will unlock resources if successful to help your development.
    These elements are balanced well, to provide an immersive and very playable game world. The learning curve helps your progress whilst leaving room for challenge and learning from your mistakes. The game menus are complex enough to be interesting and accessible enough to use smoothly. The in game challenges and missions provide enough to keep you playing and interested as your zoo grows. And of course as your zoo grows, the challenges increase. For example, I've reached the stage where my animals die from old age and need to be replaced.
