Just getting in to the game and the ZOO LIMIT has been reached. I've unlocked a whole variety of animals and exhibits, getting all excited about the fantastic zoo i'm going to build and I've slammed up against a brick wall. Frustrating!!!
You have to sell the animals you've already bought to make room for new, different ones. Not much opportunity for variety.
ZOO LIMIT has killed this game.
Read the reviews before buying this game. ZOO LIMIT
Half a game. Should be half the price.

Very Disappointing!!
This is basically the Zoo Tycoon with all the fun stuff removed. There is very little customisation left in the game and while it might still be fun and somewhat educational for kids this is not one for experienced gamers. You can't even lay your own paths they all appear automatically whenever you place an attraction so you end up with everything have 5 or 6 paths leading off in every direction, it very frustrating. Plus I managed to finish the campaign in only a few days, especially when I realised that it didn't actually matter where you placed the attraction at all!!

Positives:
- Lovely graphics, such an improvement from the PC games.
- Easy to understand how to play as tutorials are really good.
- The interactions are fun.
- I like how easy it is to make enclosures now, as paths etc are made for you. Maybe this could be a negative though... as it makes the game very easy, but personally I like it.

Negatives:
- The 'zoo limit' honestly ruins the whole game and there is absolutely no need for it. I played the freeplay mode for about 30mins before I was told I couldn't build anymore... I had only built a third of my zoo! Why give you so much space if you can't build anymore exhibits, attractions or add anymore animals? It makes no sense! I was gutted when I found this out and it put me off the whole game as you can hardly build anything and limits the whole experience. The PC game never had anything as stupid as this. I would love to know WHY there is a zoo limit, as I'm very puzzled by it.
- The variety of species is verging on poor. For the main exhibits, you can only get lions, tigers, rhinos, hippos, giraffes, bears, elephants and chimps. This seems pretty limited. They have way too many subspecies for each species (e.g. white rhino, black rhino, etc) there is 9 subspecies for giraffe... really? Where are the wolves, wild dogs, crocodiles, penguins, tapir, pandas, and all the other big cats? Why include a billion subspecies of lion and tiger but no other big cats such as cheetahs and leopards? I could go on with the missing animals. So many species from the PC game aren't there. The 'mini exhibits' do have more animals such as lemurs, meerkats, lizards, etc... but these are tiny enclosures and the interaction with these animals is poor. They seem more like decoration adds on than enclosures.

I had loved Zoo Tycoon for a long few years on the PC but had never tried any of the reboots for Nintendo DS etc. I finally saw a trailer for this new, 2013 reboot for Xbox 360 and Xbox 1 and thought I had to check it out just for nostalgia reasons.

Sadly it doesn't live upto my expectations for a new generation reboot of one of the best simulator games. Without a doubt the graphics are fantastic (I play the 360 version) especially on the details of the animals ingame. They are some of the best graphics of animals I've ever seen in games before. However the gameplay is the let down.

Gone are the endless creative options. You are given 5 types of terrain exhibits in 3 different sizes that you drag and drop onto a map to create your zoo. No real options of path building, everything is pretty much painting by numbers. Great for kids who want the basics and just want to play around with the zoo animals and light side of the game, but not for anybody looking forward to the strategy style of gaming the game does promise.

Designing exhibits has gone. All terrain is pre-placed other than feed stations etc, but even these have to be placed in pre-selected spots around the edges of the fences. No moving any objects inside exhibits at all. No selection of fence styles, no selection for the ground style, all of that has been dropped from the original games. And the worse by far is the introduction of a Zoo limit (very controversial looking at other reviews here).

Graphics are great and I like the interactions but after a few hours of play you can easily get bored as the customization options and the range of animals/exhibits are very limited.
Frickin Zoo Limit... there I was creating the best zoo ever and BAM I can't create any more without destroying exhibits and decorations that I had already bought.

I think for a new generation of players such as children this is great as it introduces them to the world of Zoo Tycoon but anyone who has ever played the PC versions will only end up disappointed. I feel slightly shortchanged as I was expecting to created a zoo that would take up all the space given in the map but the zoo limit curbed those hopes, which genius came up with that idea?

Free play should be free play. I think Microsoft need to get a dictionary and some updates pretty fast otherwise the popularity of zoo tycoon will sink quickly.
