Rated 5 out of 10 by FutureHunter Overall fail with a few good ideas
I have zoo tycoon 2 for the DS and that game is a lot more fun for a much longer time. I was hoping it would be like zoo tycoon, but it was not. The graphics and sounds are great and if you have a kid that loves taking pictures of animals then consider buying the game otherwise do not. It had a few good ideas like being able to greatly expand the park and the dispenser to give random new animals for points earned in the game. However overall game play sucks, all you do is take pictures of the animals, sometimes feeding them for better pictures, to make them more popular and manage were the animals go. You even have a limit to the number of animals you can visit before it automatically ends the day, though the number does increase with the more animals you get. Overall it is an easy game to beat and does not have lasting appeal or a good gaming experience. If you want a real fun zoo game go back to the Tycoon games. The new games like this need to focus just as much the do on the graphics on to making a fun game, because if you want to see some awesome graphics that the 3DS allows, both the 3D and no 3D, compared to the earlier versions this game certainly shows them.
Rated 0 out of 10 by FutureHunter It looks to be a great game if you like zoos.
Compared to the previous versions in Nintendo it looks and sounds much improved. I own the Zoo Tycoon 2 for the Nintendo DS and it was a very fun game and I am looking forward to the new dimensions and animals in this one. I would pre-order it, but I am a relatively broke college student so instead I will be saving up my bucks to buy it later. I love tycoon games they are always so fun. I still play the old Roller coaster Tycoon for the PC that I got in elementary. On that note I hope tycoon releases more of their PC games like Roller coaster tycoon on the Nintendo 3DS platform. It definitely makes me excited for the future games that could come out, especially that with the price drop I was able to buy the Zelda Bundle for the 3DS and as such finally have the platform for all these new games.
Rated 4 out of 10 by animalsandmagic There's not enough to do.
I like taking pictures of the animals in the zoo and feeding them but when that's all there is to do the game just isn't much fun. I would have loved it if there were more interactions with the animals, such as petting, playing with them, and even cleaning the enclosures in addition to being able to take pictures. So far this is the worst zoo game there is. I was hoping for a much better game than this although the animals do look good.
Rated 0 out of 10 by animalsandmagic looks good
The animals look really realistic and hopefully will move around like real ones as well. I am also hoping there is a lot of different interactions that can be done with the animals. So far it is looking like it will be one of the best zoo games around although I doubt it will be better than zoo tycoon 2 for the PC was but since I don't have a computer that plays it anymore I am really hoping that this game will at leat come close to being just as good.
Rated 0 out of 10 by sundog123 Zoo Resort 3D?
This game looks very fun. It's kind of like a Sims, but for animals. I've played one other Zoo Resort on DS, and I have to say, I liked it a lot! It's all about you and your very own zoo. You build a grand zoo, and decide anywhere from common to exotic animals to live in it. The other Zoo Resorts were really fun. I'm hoping this one will be 10 times better. It's definatley on my to-buy list!

This game sounds amazing. I love games where you make zoos and take care of animals, make your zoo popular, etc.,etc.. This looks and sounds so cute,awesome, and cool. The animals will look great in 3D and with the 3D's great graphics.
Rated 0 out of 10 by dolphinboy Looks like junk
To me zoo games are pretty stupid and they never satisfy anyone.
