I have all the Zoo Tycoon games and they are great when I heard that marine mania was being bought out for Zoo Tycoon 2 I had to download the demo and see if it was worth buying and believe me it was. This game has great graphics and you can actually swim with the animals as well as train them it's so cool. Buy this game, it's one not to be missed.

i own all the zoo tycoon 2 expansions so far and new nothing about it till i was in a "Game" when i saw it in its shiny case with the orca staring me in the eye i snatched it up falling over with excitment grabbed a £20 note and shoved it into the mans hand.

my fingers were shaking as i opened the packaging i love stratagy game and zoo tycoon in particulal.

The tutorial is informtive and i reckon it should be looked at first .

anyway i found the game superb. i couldnt keep up with it as i placed tank after tank

the graphics are great (for quick gaming on high grapics spec you need a prity quick computer)there are

(with all expansions) over 80 animals available which means 80 enclosure if you want to put them all in which i think is impposible to fitin even in the largest map.

The fact you get to train the animals for shows is also a superb idea also adding to the list of things avilable to do i can honestly find no fault with the game aprt from the fact it may make you spend hours in front of the computer!

a great idea definet buy for the zoo enthusiast looking for a new challlenge

I have been a huge fan of the Zoo Tycoon series, both original and second generation. whilst some die hards have rated the second generation inferior and less stimulating as it is easier, i believe the expansion packs have all rectified this.

Marine Mania is great fun, especially if you train your performing marine life yourself (the hired trainer is very slow!!). You have more marine life to train as well in this series than in the original. The satisfaction of having a top rated Buluga whale show, all done by your own artistic (and co-ordinated) hand is rather rewarding!! There are more objects to place in your zoo, allowing you to create a variety of themed areas. You can, of course, shut your zoo for your own personal access, and spend all day swimming with your various marine life, or just be very cruel, and swim in front of your guests. If you like this series, buy this expansion and create the world's most fabulously stocked zoo!!

By BookWorm TOP 100 REVIEWER on 16 Nov. 2007
Marine Mania is an expansion pack for the original Zoo Tycoon 2 game (i.e. you must have the latter installed first in order to play). For fans of the game who have already completed the original game, Marine Mania provides a fresh challenge and injects some fresh interest into the game.

As the name suggests, Marine Mania enables the budding virtual zoo manager to build tanks and adopt dolphins, whales, sharks, turtles, fish etc. Tank building is very similar to building conventional enclosures (indeed, these can be used for many of the new species, through use of the deep water tool). A suitable biome must be selected (there are several new ones added), plants and rocks added, and food and enrichment objects provided for the animals. Zookeepers, who can now swim, care for these as well the terrestrial species.

The more original and entertaining new feature of Marine Mania is the ability to create marine shows. To do this, the player must build and equip a special show tank, train up animals (not all species can perform in shows), and devise show programmes. Training the animals can be very time consuming and, as training involves being able to trace the cursor over a particular pattern at a defined speed, can be tricky, especially for laptop users with touchpad mice. However, for experienced players, the challenge is welcome as just caring for a new bunch of animals is not particularly hard for the well seasoned player.

There are also some new objects (flora and fanua, buildings, statues etc.), the capacity to swim with the marine animals, and the ability to interact with certain enrichment objects while in zoo guest mode (e.g. kicking pursuit balls).

The graphics are amazing, you can swim with the animals and ride on dolphins and make your own show, this is a bit hard to get the hang of the first time but then it becomes easier and its so fun watching the shows!
There are millions of new animals and objects to choose from, the fun one of the best expansions so far!!

My friend had first gotten, Zoo Tycoon, then, as soon as it came out, Zoo Tycoon 2. I went over to her house, and played it, at once I was captivated by it, and quickly purchased a copy. The next Christmas, I asked for the Endangered Animal's, and got it.
Soon after, I purchase, Marine Mania, and I love it! The graphics are amazing, the tricks you can teach your animals, are brilliant too!
It is a fantastic game, and a brilliant present, but, please remember, you do need the original game, Zoo Tycoon 2, to run it, so to avoid mega disappointment, purchase this before.
I hope you found this helpful!
