    A bit disappointing in terms of its presentation but we can recommend it to anyone with a hankering for an unusually sweet god game. [Mar 2009, p.54]

Certainly if you go in expecting The Sims, but with animals, you're going to have a bad time. What this game is, is a quiet, peaceful, occasionally frustrating game about managing an environment so that it best suits the animals you want to live there. It's a god game, and as such, I found it perfect for when you want to relax with more patience than split-second timing. It can be a bit dull, particularly if you're not interested in god games, but I found that it had a lot of fun features, it was pretty, it distracted me from real life for a bit. Don't pay full price for it, but you can probably pick it up for cheap used, and that might be worth it if you're looking for a game that won't stress you out. Full Review »

You are restricted to very small portions of land and it gets boring very fast.
