Like it, dont love it
I was actually looking forward to Zoo Tycoon as a launch title for Xbox One and I wasnt too disappointed. It has good graphics and its cute but it really lacks depth. If you liked the prior incarnations on PC, you may want to pass on this one. I personally liked how it wasnt as deep as the PC games because I often felt that there was too much going on when I played those versions. However, I loved being able to customize my exhibits and this game does not allow that. I would recommend it for kids or casual gamers. Simulation and Tycoon fans will be very disappointed
Addictive but Limited
At first I didn't understand how the game worked. After going through the brief tutorial, I learned it was an easy concept. The game is fun and good for just wasting a few hours here and there. But i have found that there comes a point in the game that you cannot meet the requirements of the "guests" because you are at your "zoo Limit". Gets very frustrating and I end up quitting and/or just starting over. All in all, great for a gamer who doesn't work through a game fast, such as a child.
Don't do it.
If you have any love for the series, do not buy this. It's taken out nearly every aspect of Zoo Tycoon for PC and Zoo Tycoon 2. You can't make your own exhibits like the way you could, you can't care for your animals the way you could. Everything is pre-built.
Most game have their glitches and this one is no exception. Fun to play for a day or two but not much replay value. Achievements are glitchy and freezes every so often. Zoo building is not unlimited and that takes away from the tycoon feeling of the game. This game had potential but for the xbox 360 and xbox one it could have been better and more expansive. Overall slighty entertaining but not worth the asking price of the game.
This game Started off to a bumpy road when i first started playing but i soon started to get the hang of it after i completed the very helpful and short tutorial. The game can be switched from a 3rd person zoo keeper to a birds eye view of the park which i thought was a very great feature. The game offers a brand new type of simulation if you would say i haven't really played a game like this before let alone any other zoo tycoon games this good. This game is worth the purchase id say if your into these casual fun games that can be played for hours and be created with your imagination or just pick right up in a pre-built zoo.
Its Fun for all ages & its simple to play!
Zoo Tycoon is simple to play, easy to adapt too for those kid gamers. I recommend this more for the kids! So parents this is a must have for your children!
