  1. With some better minigames, and a structure that did more to encourage players to progress, this could have been a spectacular sim. But the minigames don’t tie in well with the rest of the game, and they’re so few in number that you’ll get bored far too quickly to appreciate the game’s many beautiful character models for the various animals.
  2. Occasionally good graphics, somewhat interesting mini-games, and a good game concept fail to save Zoo Hospital in light of the fact so much more could have been done to make the game feel more complete. There was a lot of potential for greatness here, so hopefully next time around the developers take the extra time to go the distance.

    It's got a solid presentation, a large assortment of great looking animals, and a simple but fun interface. Unfortunately the game is over in a couple of hours, and with no way to track progress, or up the difficulty it gets boring.
  4. Shallow and repetitive gameplay pretty much destroys what would be a fun animal learning session.
  5. There's potential in this idea, but Zoo Hospital largely fails to realize it, so hopefully if a sequel is forthcoming there will be a lot more to it than what's on offer here.
  6. A forgettable relic that is just another in a long list of DS shovelware and a pretty bad example of it at that.
