Zoo Tycoon is one of the more odd tycoon games I have played recently. The game looks good, but not great. The campaign is good, but most of the missions have but time limits. They are for the most part reasonable and aren’t all that like, usually no longer than 45 minutes at the most but many as low as 15 minutes.
The animals for the most part just wonder around their enclosures and every attempt I made to toss some deer in with the lions and tigers was met with the game telling me no. This is in every way a game about running a zoo and it won’t let you traumatize your patrons. This is probably for the best actually since the game is clearly meant for educational purposes. There is plenty to read and lots of fun to be had while you are at it.
The game also has plenty of challenges and even has a challenge mode as well as a sandbox mode. However this is one of those games I would suggest getting on sale or if you have game pass playing on there. The game is fun, but or many it will get old quick. Best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.
