This has been one of my favorite rentals that I hope to own someday.
You are a park ranger with a large area to cover. You have missions to complete, sick animals to capture and treat, photo assignments that are graded on the spot, and you can choose to give tours. Or take a hot air balloon ride and watch the animals below you with the zoom on your camera. You can also have a friend ride along with you to help you capture animals so you can focus on driving. (Helpful if you play in the hard mode)

As you complete missions in each area, more areas are unlocked. You unlock different vehicles that you can switch out anytime you want. You find crates that you get to smash into to unlock paint and decals for your vehicles, as well as clothes for your character. There are also things you need to find (look like tribal masks) in each level.
You get badges and awards for every aspect of the job. Even for rolling the jeep!

Back at the Ranch, you must treat the animals for whatever ailments they have. Some of the tasks are a bit cheesy (like teeth cleaning) but others are fun (picking lice off).

I had to play the entire game in the easy mode bacause the other one was almost impossible... it was way too hard to catch the animals. You have to aim when throwing the rope while trying to drive. Then control the tension on the rope to keep it from breaking while you try to reel them in close enough to aim the net. (And none of them runs in a straight line.)

So I would recommend this game to everyone. There is so much to do, it should appeal to anyone. Just try it on easy first, otherwise you may get too frustrated to keep going.
