It would be nice if the developers owned and embraced the fact the game is definetly oriented towards younger kids. I found out about it online while looking for a game for my kids so I bought it knowing full well what I was buying. I can see how some people may have bought the game thinking it was something more than what it is. Either way my 5 year old loves it and its something we get to do together so great game in that regard. Not recomended for gamers though.

Fun game if you want to just goof around with adorable critters. bought the game with full excitement of "OH MAN CUTE THINGS" and was only disappointed to find that there are only these families to pick from for animals in the PC version:

- Big Cats
- Horses
- Giraffes
- Small Monkeys
- Koalas
- Pandas

The disappointment sets in when you realize, the game for Wii, has the above plus the following:

- Bears
- Penguins
- Crocodiles
- Antelopes
- Elephants

I looked it up, maybe there was a code or something for getting the other families, nope! Turns out the World of Zoo group was apparently laid off by Blue Fang, leaving half of the PC version incomplete. SOOOOO DON'T EXPECT TO GET THE REST OF THOSE ANIMALS ON PC ANY TIME SOON.

Other than that, if you've got no beef with the above I'd say buy it, it's really fun, I'm just a little peeved I don't get the game I was expecting. Know what you're getting into.

Yes I'm mostly upset I can't have a virtual Croc buddy. I was excited due to the fact that I haven't got a Wii and I've wanted this game for a while now.

A little let down, but it is a game meant for children, not 22 year olds with no life and tons of time on their hands. Feeling a little ripped off, glad I didn't buy it at full price, thanks Blue Fang. At least make some DLC for the rest of the animals or somethin?

Great game for a little kid. My daughter loves taking care of the different animals and its pretty easy for her to grasp and play almost totally on her own. She is 3 years old and has an absolute blast.

Cute game. A bit childish, but if you like cute animals or have a young kid to entertain it's a good way to pass the time. There is a nice variety of animals and plenty to do with them, toys to play with, and stuff to feed them. You can even design your own animals (fur pattern, body type, etc) to an extent. My only real wish is that you could rename the animals. Overall, not a bad game if you like cute, casual games. If you have a touchscreen laptop/monitor, it can be even more fun. And it runs fine on Windows 8, if that's what you happen to have.

Both my 5 & 7 year old love this game! It's fun to play with the animals and earn points to get more animals. Shows you how to play AND clean up after them.
