Initially I was having a great time pretending to be a gorilla busting out of confinement, and being a ferocious tiger, attacking the trainer I once loved, was more than thrilling. And giraffes!? I love giraffes, and trampling over the poor souls of those I imagined looking at me with wide eyes was amusing to say the least.
What more, Zoo Rampage has 45 achievements, all seemingly possible to attain, however, moving through each level is neccesary for those achievement hunters.
I've put nearly two hours into Zoo Rampage and have only been able to play two of the seven levels. A set amount of points is neccesary to pass each level, and each time I played, it seemed I would be just under the requirement. Granted, the game does have the option for local co-op, which would probably make things easier, however, I have no real life friends.
The developers recently updated the game, making it more difficult, as players were reporting that it was too easy upon its release. It's no longer easy. It's damn hard. A difficulty setting would surely cure this ailment and keep more people playing beyond an hour or so.
It pains me to give Zoo Rampage the big fat thumbs down because it had it's moments. It was fun while it lasted, but Zoo Rampage became to frustrating, and I just gave up.
