the game is solid, and is very diffrent. no killing, which turns about 95 % of evreyone away nowadays but if you like relaxing peaceful games this may be for you. You take pics of animals, thats it. You can sneak up on animals to take a pic while their doing somthing, but if you dont be careful ther will run away. It's is like the n64 game Pokemon snap except you can movie your charecter around. this game was easy to beat, so it wasn't bad, and it does good at what its supposed to be. #1WOOH...

First of all I don't want anyone to believe what they've heard about robotic looking animals. The animals look amazing and that animal animations are fluid and look absolutely real. They depict Africa very well overall which is what gets this game all of the praise it deserves...however the presentation is fairly poor and that's why this game only gets a 5 out of 10. No one talks, you just get subtitles, and the menus and everything are pretty simple but nothing pretty. There is really no story to pull you in and get you involved in the game. Gameplay is fairly solid considering all you have to do is take pictures. You can change aperture, shutter speed, and exposure on your camera so that's cool. The one big problem I have is that there are no clear objectives on how to advance at some points. You do all the email message missions and then they'll just stop coming in. I'm pretty sure this means you need to discover more species in certain areas but there is no checklist to tell you which ones you're missing and no way of knowing where to look...So it's alright but nothing that's a lot of fun, just cool to look at for a while.

Yeah, the game is something different, something new. I played it for about 10 hours total. I feel like I've wasted 10 hours of my life. If you enjoy photography you may enjoy the game, but I found myself getting bored with the game itself. It's very repetitive. Get an e-mail, take a picture of this, send the picture through e-mail. Rinse and repeat and you've got the entire game in your hands right there.
