Reviews

“Zoo Park: Run Your Own Animal Sanctuary is a strange breed, certain aspects cling to the strategy genre, yet the whole premise of the game makes it more of a simulation, and its disregard for making money and competing is remarkable, but this does mean that it may have some trouble appealing to the extent of modern gamers who need resolution at the end of the tunnel”
4/5 – Gamercast

I got this gamea few months ago, and although i have not spent that long on it, i felt i should write a review to try and counteract all the negative reviews this game has gotten.

The first thing i want to say is no, this is NOT zoo tycoon. if its a zoo tycoon type game you are looking for, go buy and/or play zoo tycoon. This game is more an animal sancturay game than a zoo game. This means that you have to work harder to get to a good point in the game. not all the animals are available from the start, many you have to research. if you want to breed them faster, you have to research that, along with improved health, and if you wish to rehabilitate animals, and release them to the wild, you can again do this faster via research.

There are not as many animal as in zoo tycoon, but there are still enough to keep you happy, and your sanctuary full. The exhibits you make for the animals are simpler than in zoo tycoon, which may make this game more youngster friendly, in that you simply choose the habitiat, how big you want the exhibit, and then place some trees, all of which are listed under the same habitats as the animals they are designed for. for example, if you want a lion, place an african exhibit, the some african trees. job done! you can also place pools of water and rocks for animals which require them.

It is much easier on this game to earn 'money' to buy new items, or spend on new animals or research, again making it a bit more friendly for younger players.

there are some cons, in that alot of the animals do not live long enough to breed unless you have fully researched their faster breeding to 3 stars, so when they die you will have to pay out to replace them, but with the ease of money making in this game its not a huge problem.

At the price its currently at, £4, i would highly recommend this game, its a fun, animal themed passtime, that is well worth the money!

I hope i have conviced at least one person to try this game, overlooking all the 'this is not zoo tycoon' reviews.

This game is pretty fun and simple. Easy to understand, it's a pretty good game to play when you've got time to kill.

the only problem for me was have to go animal to animal trying to find who was sick and who wasnt. it be better if there was a page that showed all the animals but if you liked RollerCoaster Tycoon then you should like this. the only problem is that its just one big area and there not much to it just make pens for animals and wait till the have babys and build up money repeat,

Let me start by lowering your expectations. If you have played Zoo Tycoon 1 or 2 then you will be dissapionted with this game. Zoo Tycoon 2 is obviously much higher end in terms of graphics and overall gaming satisfaction but if you are a lover of simulation games related to zoos and managment then this is not a bad game to add to your collection. If I was a gamer that wasn't familar with either of the Zoo Tycoon games then this game would probably be a bit more fun because I wouldn't know any better. Not to dumb the game down, it is actually pretty complicated in some ways. Fun game for 5 bucks but don't expect too much. I really hope the Zoo Tycoon series eventually makes its way over to Steam one day.
