KEY FEATURES

  • Enhanced 3D graphics complement the ability to walk around your zoo inspecting the animals, hanging with visitors and taking pics

  • More interesting scenarios are promised, generated from either random or dynamic challenges
  • Free downloadable content will be available via ongoing updates
  • THE BUZZ: Not a game that's going to blow anyone away but for management buffs, the improvements over the original will be welcome. And let's be frank, we've all wanted to own a zoo since we were nippers, haven't we?
