  • Summary: Endangered Species brings some of the world's rarest animals home to your zoo. This expansion pack for Zoo Tycoon 2 adds a slew of exotic new content for a zookeeper just like you. Treat yourself and your guests to breathtaking overhead views from the new sky trams. Or drive through your exhibits in the new Jeep vehicle tours. Build bridges and observation decks for a refreshing new view of your animals. And that’s not all. There are also erupting volcanoes, new endangered-species-themed buildings and scenery, and a whole new set of challenges and campaigns. [Microsoft] Expand

  1. It is possible to lose track of the hours spent tending to your zoo. In our view, this is the base measure of a successful strategy game.
  2. A very nice expansion pack. It gives you enough new things to do that even if you played Zoo Tycoon 2 a lot when it came out, you’ll now have an excuse to play it some more.
  3. As with most expansion packs, Endangered Species breaths fresh life into a title that may have gotten stale on your hard drive. Fans of the original game will enjoy the newly expanded library of animals and objects when updating their zoos.
  4. 65
    Don’t look to the expansion to add anything new to the game that will get you very excited unless you’re completely in dire need of more animals.
  5. This expansion does not add enough to the game to make it recommendable to those who are no already diehard fans of Zoo Tycoon 2.
  6. If you enjoy squandering time away on the original title, you're bound to find more joy and excitement from the additional animals and buildings included in this expansion.
  7. It’s a CD that adds about 20 endangered animals to your existing game of Zoo Tycoon 2, and that’s about it.

    I wasn't so sure if this game was going to add things I was interested in. But I loved Zoo 2, so I gave it a shot. And... wow! If you liked the orginal game, this one is a must-have. The new animals are great (I think that the developer is getting better at creating them), the new transportation elements look *awesome*, and add new gameplay. The new scenarios are really fun and challenging. This is a surefire 10, and definitely worth the price of admission. Did I say that the graphics look alot better than the original? Expand
