  • Summary: Here is your chance to create a giant and beautiful zoo. A park so amazing, it would be impossible to build in real life. In Wildlife Park you must build an animal park from scratch, managing it so your visitors will spend their money. You begin with just the park area, a ticket booth and some money. From there you can buy animals, build the zoo, hire employees and then open the gates and let the visitors come. [Encore Software] Expand

  1. The animals are not as easy to please as in Zoo Tycoon. With coming of age most animals not only have the urge to pass on their genes (this is a PG rated review) but when getting older they can get sick and aggressive.
  2. A decent simulation with cute animals, always a sure bet for kids and all lovers of nature. There are a few rough edges, but there are also more things to do than in "Zoo Tycoon," and the price is better.

    I think that people who love this style of game will get a real kick out of being a wildlife refuge manager. It may also have some benefit as a teaching aid, as the care of the animals seems very realistic.
  4. There's just enough depth to this game to make it challenging to newbies and novices. If you're a "Roller Coaster Tycoon" fanatic you will find the gameplay much too similar to hold your interest.
  5. Since the game gives more than a passing glance at animal satisfaction, this game could have been much better if it built upon that better. This one just didn't hold my interest.
  6. Wildlife Park might have been a fun distraction for theme park fans, but the poor design and execution cripple it in a crowded field of competitors.
  7. This theme has been tried before with Microsoft's Zoo Tycoon, so what will Wildlife Park have to differentiate it from the rest of the field? Well, as it turns out, a more natural look and.....not much else, really.
