Alright - but can be slow, juddery and difficult to manouver
on 16 November 2013
It's alright if looking for more scenarios after finishing the Zoo tycoons (which will always be the best!). But it can be difficult to move objects around as the ground doesn't have a grid pattern like zoo tycoon, so you have to try and turn it with your mouse which makes it difficult to place exactly where you want it e.g. shops, paths, fences etc.
I also found it annoying that zoo keepers don't just run around wherever they are needed, they have set areas and get tired or don't have the right skills - in which case they don't do the jobs they should be doing! You also have to hire vets and gardeners - and although I like the pretty variety of flowers and trees that you can have, they seem to always be getting ill (e.g. mould) or needing to be watered, or are too cold in the winter and too hot in the summer etc. it gets rather tedious looking after them.
A lot of the animals and plants names are also still in German, making it also annoying to work out which one needs tending to when it comes up on the screen!
So overall - I am still using as scenarios are interesting and I enjoy the graphics of the game animals etc. but for new players stick with the zoo tycoons - they are awesome and nothing will ever beat that!
