5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent add on to an already excellent game 16 Nov 2005
I was dubious about this game prior to ordering, I played the first zoo tycoon and the expansion packs didn't really add that much to the original. I briefly scanned the marketing about this game prior to release and thought it would be just a few more animals. How wrong was I?
There are extra animals, and as dull as that sounds, it actually is a great addition. New creatures with new habitats, shelters, trees, toys, all can be used on the old animals. The best addition is the Cable Cars and Jeep ride, which is great fun, and just adds to the overall enjoyment and satisfaction of making the zoo tenfold.
Highly recommended, cheap at half the price ;)

4.0 out of 5 stars A good addition - but also changes things 6 Aug 2007
By BookWorm TOP 500 REVIEWER
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is an add on to the very enjoyable strategy game 'Zoo Tycoon 2' and you will need the former to play this. This review focuses on the Endangered Species add on only, so it may be helpful to read in conjunction with my review of Zoo Tycoon 2 itself.

I bought this add on when I reached the stage of boredom with the original (only when I'd done everything there was to do). It did a great job of revitalising my interest. A large number of interesting new animals and objects are available, which is a definite plus. It also has the new features of allowing you to build 'zoo tours' which may be via jeep or via sky tram. This adds a whole new aspect to the game and gives experienced players a new challenge. You can also build elevated paths, although this isn't that much of a thrill.

There are also several elements of this game which make it more challenging - a good thing if you've exhausted all the options in the original game. Some zoos come with 'conservation areas' where you cannot make any changes to the terrain, either by removing objects or adding them.

Animal breeding is also much more closely controlled and animals will only mate with those completely non-related. This means buying in new animals fairly frequently which can be a real pain in the early stages of the game. It certainly requires more work and thought than in Zoo Tycoon 2, and can be frustrating for that. However, it does solve the problem of uncontrollable multiplication in numbers which I frequently had with the original game and was equally irritating.

Graphically it is still very good, although it seems to get darker and lighter (possibly trying to indicate days/seasons).

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 16 Nov 2005
I loved this game. I loved zoo tycoon2 and i absolutely love this expansion pack. I love koalas so i was a little disappointed when they didnt show up in zoo tycoon 1 but finally they are here in this game. I have played the demo from the game's site and it was brilliant. The jeeps are ace and the elevated paths are wow. I love the new random little features like the snow machine and the face painting stall - they just ad the finishijg touches to the game. I seriously reccomend this game. It's on my christmas list and it should be on yours too especially if you are a fan of zoo tycoon2 anyway!!!!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, but... 10 Jan 2006
By A Customer
I agree that this adds many great features to the original, such as Jeeps and new animals, but it does have one problem. It adds in animal family trees meaning your animals can't interbreed. Sounds sensible but when your zoo is well developed, it only takes the death of one breeding animal such as a Giant Panda and suddenly it costs $50,000 to replace! Very infuriating after a while.

2.0 out of 5 stars Zoo Tycoon 2 8 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase
I bought this for a Christmas present and am in an embarrasing position as the game just will not install ( while all others did without a problem) and I am having to pay an engineer to come and install it. it is turning out to be an expensive gift. NOT happy!
