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!


• 20 missions and freeplay maps (sandboxmode) around the world
• 50 different animal species, 30 plant species
• More than 100 animal houses, visitor facilities, staff buildings, decorative park elements, and enclosure equipment
• Direct interaction with the animals, e.g. petting, feeding, shooing, etc.

• Rebreeding of exotic and extinct animal and plant species in special research labs

The best zoo-tycoon game in my opinion. The WP series features heavily on realism, unlike the Zoo Tycoon series, although that series is good too. Animals look realistic, as are their AI behavior. It takes a while for babies to be born, unlike ZT where it apparently happens instantly. Food don't magically appear out of thin air to feed your animals. like in ZT. You need to place the proper facilities to make the food.

WP 2 also focuses more on those rare/unknown animals, unlike ZT where they feature mostly well known/popular animals. I like this idea, because it lets people who play this game learn about animals they've never seen/or read about before. For example, there's the frilled sharks from the marine expansion. I doubt many people who aren't shark fans would know what they are.

The map isn't really set up like a grid (ZT again). You simply 'paint' the paths along the ground for your customers to walk on, which makes your zoo look more realistic if you're using stone or dirt paths for instance.

One thing I do like in ZT over WP2 though is setting up your habitats for marine animals. It's very easy to do in ZT but I find it frustrating to do the same in WP2.

Both zoo series are good, but if you want more realism in a zoo game, then WP2 is the way to go. With 150+ animals, realistic AI, along with loads of plants and attractions, etc, however, you should buy it anyway.

Graphics: 8.1/10

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.

There should be more than just a thumbs up or thumbs down for these reviews as this title has both. For children it is a definate thumbs up as that is the obvious target audience. The game leads you by the hand every step of the way and the controls are extremely basic. For adults it is a thumbs down for the same reasons. Missions get repetative and boring, animations are the same as the controls, basic, and even for a game released in 2006 not good enough to satisfy the older gamer. Another turn off is that even the plants appear to be sentient and tell you why they are not happy which again, is good for kids but not for adults. My four year old loves the game but my six year old prefers ZT2, as do I. make of that what you will.

I should also point out that the expansions do not appear to blend seamlesly with the original game but are rather stand alone products. i bought the ultimate edition and have 7 seperate games to play, all of which have their own settings etc.

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.

So far a good game. I have been doing the missions and they are easy to follow with clear objectives and helpful tutorials. This is definitely a game for those that like controlling communities/people like Sims and etc., and those type of people who enjoy the fun of animal games.

Very in depth zoo/wildlife park simulation game. Far more detailed than Zoo Tycoon and actually very entertaining and well-done despite being an older game. Terrain editing, plant care, and animal care is all very detailed. No problems playing on Windows 8.1. Highly recommended for those who love simulation.

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.

There are a lot of people who compare this game to Zoo Tycoon, and for good reason. It's basically the same premise, after all. This game cannot be faulted for being less realistic than the ZT series, because it is, and that does add a little depth to the simulation.


The interface is far, far more clunky than ZT's, and some of the design decision are questionable. For example, each zookeeper you hire requires you to build him a special Zookeeper's Hut, which is a three-story-tall eyesore. And he can only handle about two enclosures, so prepare to build a lot of them. Also, some of their claims about number of animals are specious (You can't have Rabbits AND Bunnies.), and the overall assortment of things to customize the look of your zoo is FAR smaller than ZT (No flower beds? Really? And the entire list of statues I can build is 'Bear' and 'Panda bear'.)

All in all, I think ZT2 is a far better game, and kinda regret this purchase.

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.
8.9/10 %

The game and its expansion packs are formatted to be different games and don't really blend well into each other. The missions are good tutorials but they get very repetative. The interface is very clunky and the information about the animal is very vauge. This is not a zoo tycoon equivalent. The game(s) do feature different aspects that zoo tycoon didn't such as hardness level, amount of food, and weather conditions but I find those features limit the game experience instead of enhancing it. For instance I wouldn't be able to have a penguin and a dragon in the same zoo and would have to make a new save. The water placement is also an interesting mechanic but if you are going for an asthetic look is not great. The DLC only adds about 1-3 new animals which for $5 is a bit of a rip off. However compared to other zoo tycoon simulators I've tried this one holds up well. If you are looking for something that isn't zoo tycoon and is fairly cheap then this game is okay but I reccomend looking into purchasing zoo tycoon itself (even if its expensive).

Growing up I was addicted to Zoo Tycoon, so as soon as I saw this for sale I knew I had to try it.
I feel like most people who enjoyed the ZT series will enjoy WP2. I wouldn't say this game is harder than ZT, but it has more of a realistic feel. You need to have structures to harvest food for the animals, plants need care, and babies animals don't just pop out of nowhere, instead they have a gestation period or eggs are layed.
Starter missions are fairly simple and do a good job of introducing you to the game machanics.
The only major thing I can complain about is the set up for marine habitats. Otherwise I feel the game is overall very userfriendly.

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?

it's educational basically while I am playing is I started to think that I am in the kindergarden. so If you want buy this game for your children it's recommended but for adult it's okay those who likes animal but I don't recommened this to people who really like to see fight in zoo or those who doesn't like animal at all. It is your choice though If you want animals then buy, if you don't then don't buy it

P.S. I put my tiger in to path while people are walking, it didn't attack at all but chase.
so my rate for this game is 78.9/100.0
