Cute game, and another great one from Frontier

Really cute game for everyone. My three year old daughter has a blast feeding the animals, spraying them off, and interacting with the monkeys. Overall this game has a very beautiful and authentic experience for everyone of all ages and provides a very fun game for anyone to enjoy. Also enjoy the power of the Kinect in this game to interact with all the animals for example: reaching your hand down and picking up food to feed to them. Also would like to mention that you can interact with animals that will actually Mimic you on the Kinect Sensor. You can see your reflection in the mirror and play with the animals to mimic you. The Kinect gestures makes the game even better and definately Frontier does not dissapoint in this experience. If you are curious about Frontier, they are the developers who provided you awesome games such as Rollercoaster Tycoon, Thrillville, Kinectimals for the 360, and Kinect Disney Land for the 360.

Overall, this game is beautiful, cute, and very fun to play and DEFINITELY worth a try.. Definitely a 9/10 for me.

As fun as this cute game seems to be it is redculously repetative, and with no action at all repition turnsto anger. Nothing Ever happens,yet you are contantly driving animal shaped golf carts, teleporting, or running like a mad man from habitat, to restrooms to fix their problems, to emptying trash cans, and so on. This game is ajob called a game. Afew plusses though are the funny karts do power slides and with a few updates like maybe animal escapes orcrc dhow tht could go wrong, or even some scientific genetic crossbreeding experiments in the basement, just some of my fun sggestions.

Fun Game, horrible menues

Zoo Tycoon was a fun little game and my first "next gen" experience. I really enjoyed how seamless you could zoom from the overhead management view, to the 3rd person zookeeper view. The animals had really neat AI and felt real. The kinect iterations were also used in a great way, to actually feed and play with the animals in a natural way.

However, all of the positives could not overcome the pain of filtering through menu after menu just to refill a feeding or watering station. This was so frustrating and time consuming that I gave up playing the game after the initial enjoyment wore off.
