    Not Worth the Time and Effort

    For a game released in 2008, the graphics are sorely lacking. There are too many glitches in the game itself - it reports that animals are not contained in their habitats, when upon confirming it, they actually are. This causes a problem because zoo guests will run away from those exhibits, leading to a lack of donations and decrease in guest happiness.

    The game mechanics, such as placing walls and fences, can get confusing at times. You really have to have a feel for how they respond to placement if you're looking to build habitats that are more elaborate than your standard square or rectangle.

    The challenge mode made me scratch my head. One particular challenge, set on easy, only gave you $20,000 to start with. But with the cost of building one habitat that was comparable to the two others already established in that zoo, plus the cost of adoption, most of the money was gone, and there was no way to complete the challenge unless you simply let the game run for a year to replenish the funds so you could continue to work towards the goal. But the way the goal was set up, you would have to continue the cycle of build/adopt and wait a year with each habitat built before the animal the goal set for you to adopt was even available. It just seemed like an incredible waste of time.

    Free Form mode was more fun in my opinion, but there was absolutely no challenge to it, unless you set goals for yourself. Money was unlimited, everything was unlocked, and all it took was a few hours of game play to get the zoo to its best rating possible. Too simple.

    One thing that was very lacking in this game was the availability of an aviary, or a greater variety of birds that could cohabit. Flamingos and Peacocks seemed to get along fine. But try anything else and it was a dangerous combination for some reason. No ducks, no petting zoo, no elaborate lizard or insect exhibits like you would see at a normal zoo. It made for disappointing game play. I was in it for the realism, and it just didn't seem to add up for me.

    I didn't even get around to playing with the dinosaur feature. It seemed a little too out there to really mess with - more Jurassic Park than realistic zoo. If that's something you're into though, you might have fun with it.

    All in all, it was entertaining for the couple days I dedicated to it, but quickly became frustrating, as the larger my zoo got, the more the animals supposedly got out of their habitats (when they really didn't). Even with a large, dedicated zoo staff, things quickly became annoying. It did have a large database or encyclopedia that helped the player understand the animals better.

    I think if the game itself had been planned better mechanically and the bugs had been sifted out beforehand, the added expansions included in this set would have been worth the time. Kids younger than 13 might like it, but teenagers or adults who enjoy realistic sims might not enjoy this.

    Very fun game!

    I really really like this game! Very fun! Theres so many things to chose from! You can even build a jeep drive threw tour! Plus, there are so many different kinds of animals to chose from! Even dinosaurs! And just for fun, you can even let your animals loose, and some of them chase after your guests! lol! The graphics are really nice! You can go inside of your animal exhibits and get a closer look at your animals and take care of them and even take pictures of them, or you can walk around your zoo just like a guest! i recommend this game to anyone who likes these kind of games!

    Zoo Tycoon 2 Ultimate Collection Disc 3

    My 10 year old really loves playing this game. It comes with all the Zoo Tycoon 2 expansion packs in one set. One drawback I have to mention is that Microsoft has had a quality control problem and for some of the games out there the disc number 3 is actually a duplicate of disc 2 and mislabeled. You will need to call Microsoft to get a replacement disc #3 at 1-800-360-7561. Luckily my neighbor let me borrow his disc to finish the installation. Overall the kids are really enjoying this - even my teenager who normally plays FPS games.

    excellent game

    This game allows you to play w/all of the zoo tycoon 2 games. Its a great game. My whole family enjoys playing it. If you like to play games that let you design enclosures for aniaml and build zoo this game is the best. It give you alot of levels to pass so there is hours of fun in one box.

    Zoo Tycoon 2 Ultimate Collection

    This is great - it has all of the zoo features bundled. Also fun for various ages. Our son starting playing zoo tycon games when he was about 7 years old. He is now almost 12 and just purchased this product. It's great at helping build logic skills and multi-tasking/management.
