  • Summary: You'll make a huge splash by adding killer whales, manta rays, and other exciting marine animals to your existing zoo. Have a whale of a time as you combine land, marine, and prehistoric animals to build the wildest, most exciting zoo ever! The newest expansion pack to the top selling Zoo Tycoon franchise will provide more than 20 new marine animals (dolphin, great white, giant squid), customized aquatic shows such as the dolphin and killer whale shows, a ton of new objects, and 10 new scenarios.

  1. It’s great, fun, and somewhat educational for the whole family, and it’s a well rounded game.
  2. Offers many new things for people to do, and that, combined with solid visuals, makes the expansion pack lots of fun to play.
  3. Doesn't offer any changes to the gameplay--I think there could be a lot more creativity in the scenarios, but it will inject new life into your Zoo Tycoon gaming.
  4. Hard-core fanatics of the original will find this expansion somewhat appealing, although the aquatic shows are a bit flat.
  5. 68
    If you've enjoyed Zoo Tycoon so far, you should find plenty more to like in Marine Mania.
  6. The new expansion pack features some new zoo animals, new exhibit types, and the entire Dinosaur Digs expansion, but nothing else.
  7. Like the original ZT, the difficulty level involved in the gameplay is practically nonexistent. [Mar 2003, p.108]

    The game play is incredible. There are many cheats including putting a mermaid statue in a tank.
