“"Overall, the zoo god experience can be fulfilling, knowing that you are in control of everything alive in the picture. This is a recommended play for fans of “control-freak” games like Theme Park, Theme Hospital, The Sims and Red Alert-genre programs."”

“"Behind Wildlife Park 2's somewhat childish demeanor is a strong tycoon management sim which tasks you with making all the people happy all of the time. Think of Rollercoaster Tycoon where the rides have needs and wants, and you're approaching the complexity of this game.... "”

About This Game

Wildlife Park 2 will completely satisfy animal lovers and zoo fans: an incomparable natural experience – right in your living room! Now’s the chance to build the Zoo of your dreams!

Become a zoo manager and take good care of your animal charges! Wildlife Park 2 brings you into "up close and personal" contact with more than 50 different animal species. Observe the lovingly animated, realistic interaction of the animals - with other animals, the landscape, the play equipment, or the visitors to the park! Just like in a real zoo, the animals must receive all-round care. This is as easy as winking in Wildlife Park 2: With a click of the mouse you can feed, doctor, pet, or even relocate animals, or get them moving. You will guide a team of landscape architects, gardeners, keepers, veterinarians, and scientists. If you manage your zoo carefully, you will soon be able to celebrate the birth of new animals!

Construct your zoo using more than 100 animal houses, visitor facilities, staff buildings, decorative park elements, and enclosure equipment. Wildlife Park 2 is an ideal playground for amateur architects, too! Use the extensive terraforming options to create your own imaginative landscapes. Plenty of established plant species and botanical rarities such us underwater plants or cacti will thrive under your loving care, and all this is lavishly displayed by a dynamic plant system. Another specialty is the realistically simulated flow of water. By easily placing a water source, you can create thunderous waterfalls and rambling water worlds.

Visitors to your zoo will expect a few treats, too - build restaurants and ice-cream parlors and provide spectacular entertainment. Employ advertising and marketing to attract new visitors. But don't forget to keep an eye on your zoo's budget at all times!

more in depth than Zoo Tycoon and with a larger variety of animals, enjoy creating amazing zoos with animals both alive and extinct.

downside would be the animals trained get sold to circuses, so if your against circus animals might want to avoid that bit, but remember this is just a game and not real life, your not actually hurting animals it's just a pc game.

Excellent game but a little buggy in places. I got the game on a sale with all the expansions, which gives cracking value and a really vast amount of content for the money.

The very real question is whether or not this game is better than Zoo Tycoon, which is a tough one to answer.

Zoo Tycoon 2 is without question more polished, less buggy and very enjoyable to play.

However, Wildlife Park has masses of content, is cheaper, has more flexibility and an engaging realism.

In short, they are two quite different games so compliment each other quite well. I would definitely recommend getting the expansion packs for this as they are quite spectacular. On the whole I'd strongly recommend this and with some bug fixes it would probably beat Zoo Tycoon 2.

I was expecting shovelware type quality from this game, but it really suprised me. It has a ton of animals to choose from and a deeper variety of features than my previous All Time Favorite Zoo Related Game, Zoo Tycoon 2. I think that this game is the more realistic the animals interact with their exhibit much more. And for coming out in 2006, the graphics aren't too bad.

This game is possibly the best zoo simulation game on the internet. First, you have to pick the environment you want. From Costa Rica to Himilayas (heck, even a crater). Then, you have to build your whole zoo from scratch. No, not one of those crappy iphone apps where you get a colossal enclosed area and you just tapped on animals to feed them (and somehow get money from the animals), you have to actually BUILD it.
This brings me to one of the bad things about the game; The prices are insanely off-bordered. A pig costs 10 dollars, while an extremely rare Napoleon Wrasse from a DLC costs 48 dollars. In real life, the Napoleon Wrasse would cost thousands.
Anyway, after you start adding pens, you can put animals. They start off pretty hungry and possibly near-death, so what do you do? Either abuse the system and buy 1,000 lemon trees for cheap, or get a greenhouse for 500 dollars.
Once you get an entrance, you can open up the zoo for visitors.
Brings me to another bad thing; every visitor is so picky I can't even laugh about it.
If you have the Crazy Zoo DLC, every single kid will not stop whining about wanting to climb something. Sometimes, I just put them in with some monkeys and tell them to climb the monkey slide. It's so annoying.
You can put a wide variety of machines for visitors to use, like vendors, shops, and other stuff to take all of their money. Then, they complain to you that they ain't got no money. What do you do? Well, you have them take your money from an ATM and re-pay the same amount! YAY!
Also, they want to pet the "cute" animals. Even if you only have dead anglerfish around, they want to pet cute animals. It's so freakin' annoying.
Notheless, this game is great, and I recommend it.

A nice simulation game for those who love and adore wildlife, along with managaging the animals satisfying vistors needs too.
This game a great number of species of wildlife from butterflies to the giant Basilosaurus (Prehistoric Whale). Yes a few prehistoric species are added to this game which can be unlocked though placing a research lab next to a a genetic find.

A great game for parents looking for a game to teach their young ones about animals and responabilty of animals and a great game for all ages we all learn something new now and again.

OKay so as someone who still owns and plays the Zoo Tycoon games, I gotta say this one is pretty interesting. Now I like it even more with the amount of content when the (very inexpensive) expansions/DLC were bought and added.

The landscaping tools allow you to make a very detailed park as far as habitat and such goes. However some of the tools are labelled oddly. I suppose in other games I am used to the 'flatten' tool when in this game it's called 'plateau' but it does the same thing, bringing everything up/down to the same level and flat. A little finicky sometimes as it can be difficult to make a nice small pond in enclosures for drinking/swimming (sometimes there's not enough of a flat spot to put the water pump in so you have to mess around a bit). And the different types of turf are marked by hardness which is a little weird to me. I know some of the species of animals would like certain trees in their exhibits from their country of origin but the animals and trees can be dissatisfied trying to share the same turf type. I don't like the whole bit about micro managing the foliage of the park on top of the animals. That feels a little awkward.

Graphics are actually pretty decent, less cartoony than ZT 2 and (sadly) Wildlife Park 3. I am personally okay with the vast majority of them. Though I have one bug (not sure if anyone else gets this) where animals or people randomly turn invisible. They're still there and sometimes I find them by accidentally clicking on them. But you can't see them. You can see the 'meh' yellow smiley over their heads if they're somewhat unimpressed.

I do hate that the staff all have their own building, and you have to strategically place said buildings to get the most work out of your employees. The buildings take up valuable real estate that could instead be used for decoration or more exhibit space. On the plus side, the workers are pretty dedicated and no major complaints about them, in my humble opion. It would also be nice if they combined several of the staff into 'the Maintenance guy'. Gardener/Handyman/Bin Man could probably be the same dude since their work tends to be more infrequent.

I love the animal selection, though the Swiss Brown Cow is perm-invisible for me for some reason. You can create fairly interesting combinations of beasts for the most part, for mixed compatible exhibits.

Overall I'd have to rate this game (with all extra content) an 8/10 and if they make a 4th game and don't fudge it up like the 3rd one, I'll be the first to flail and yell "Shut up and take my money!"

Reminds me about Zoo Tycoon. Zoo Tycoon just a wee, bit better than this game though. Great gameplay overall. Only complaint is that why does Wildlife Park 2 have more animals than Wildlife Park 3?

An excellent sim experience with the strangest, trippiest narrative choices I've ever heard. Not sure if the script for this game was written by someone who barely spoke english or what but damn it's weird. Great game though.

Well I have always been a fan of zoo tycoon games, and this game is a worthy trip down memory lane.

Let's get the one gripe I have out of the way: The graphics and animations are a bit yesteryear but not terrible, but an upgrade to more realistic models would have been a 10/10.

And all the rest is good. All of the features in this game are very familiar to a fan of the genre and the ability to play topdown or on the ground is seamless. Full terrain editing on the fly, enclosure editing with shelters, animal enrichment etc. All the familiar snack shops and gift shops, bins and fountains, staff to sweep up, you know the score.

All in all it's and updated version of the zoo games we have missed. I will say that it feels like it is targeted at a younger audience as an education tool, but if you've missed a good zoo game, then buy it.

I wanted to love this game. I owned it years ago and I put down any remembered flaws to hardware failures or thinking it was more difficult then it probably was. I bought the ultimate addition because I thought the marine life would be a nice addition to the game I used to play.................Two days in I have all the regrets for paying any amount of money for this. Animals are sometimes invisable. Swiss brown cow female is apparently just a shadow that moos. The animals make tons of loud rrepetitive noises constantly which is extra annoying purely because most of the missions are hurry up and wait. As the game won't run in the background I literally had to have the screen up and the game running for two hours to complete a mission after I saw to the needs of the animals.........make a better zoo while animals take the time to do their thing? can't. During missions you are locked out of most of the other features. The only reason to play the missions is because otherwise you will have no idea where or what some of the important items in the game are for sandbox mode. I still have no idea after to days how to properly build a water habitat, the controls are really seriously awful. Features seem broken. I have no idea if I am supposed to be able to change the coat color on some or all of the horses since they all look like they have that option but only two of them actually allow it. Can't make mixed animal pins easily because animals are SO picky about the surface they are on. Plants handling is a nightmare. I can't believe a game got this many expansions without them fixing some of the core world building short I wish I had saved the money ordered a pizza and watched animal planet would have been far less frustrating.

This game is about a love affiar with Sweden.

It allows you to customize a massive park with various animals (DLC adds extra) both marine, land and air. You have to make sure the proper staff are hired to feed, clean and care for the park and it's inhabitants.

The game has a story type mode, but personally, it isn't too fun or interesting, though it's quite long.

My highlights were making a massive waterpark filled with fishes and nice waterfowl. Guest would walk on sandy beaches and observe them. I also placed a Sarcasucas Imperator (Giant crocodile) in the waters for a special attraction.
