A decent conversion of PC classic,
This review is from: Zoo Tycoon (Nintendo DS) (Video Game)
Despite what some may say, this is quite a good conversion taking into consideration the limitations of the DS compared to a PC!
The graphics will be worse and you can only save/work on one zoo at a time. But the game does make reasonable use of the stylus in the same way as you would use the mouse on the PC.
The basic object of the game is the same, i.e. starting with a piece of land you are tasked to build exibits compatable with the various animals available to you. Also provide zoo visitors with all the facilities they require (toilets, resturants, seating, stalls etc). Eventually completing all the requirements of the zoo, you will get the opportunity to either continue with that zoo or start a new scenario.
Overall, a good handheld version and worth a look..But please remember it's a DS not PC game you're playing.
