not a classic zoo tycoon

love the graphics but thats pretty much it.Growing up playing ZT for pc i loved it for the combanations of animals you can add in the same enclouser with no limits too the size..ALOT of the free roaming and costimaztion that these games were know for ,were left out..Felt like the is now just a drag and drop with no imagination and createtivty.REALLY upset at how the game strayed from its roots. And this was the 1st game i bought on relase and was really looking forward 2 :(

Good but could be better.

Great to see a Tycoon game come to life like this and get to build with such great ease. Just wish there were more items and animals, like all the other older tycoon games for PC.

Worst zoo tycoon game ever.

I think the game Lacks creativity.. There's no wolves no crocodiles no zebras Or any other animal you would see at the zoo Except for the ones they have already put in the game. This game was only put together for quick buck by zoo tycoon.

I have never been motivated to review anything on the internet. However, after buying zoo tycoon for my daughter, we are very disappointed. The game started out great! Daughter and I were having a good time building different attractions but after about a week of play, when we finally started making money we hit some kind of limit and are no longer able to build anything else. The environment was not even that large. There are no options to turn this off so basically as soon as you start doing well in the game you reach then end. Most frustrating purchase from xbox ever. I wish i could get my money back.
