Zoo Tycoon 2: Extinct Animals Demo
Zoos are places where you can go and admire exotic animals without having to travel all across the world and without putting yourself in danger. In case you ever wondered what it takes to manage such a business, Zoo Tycoon 2 offers the answer, by giving you free reign over the establishment and the creatures that serve as the exhibits.
Extend the fun of the original game
Zoo Tycoon 2: Extinct Animals is an expansion pack to the popular sim game that has you managing a zoo and it brings forth a wide variety of extinct species to enjoy, as well as a lot of gameplay improvements. Unlike in the original game, there are many new mini-games that can be enjoyed, all of which aim to extend the fun and put your perception, reflexes and critical thinking to the test.
Naturally, the collection of animals is entirely new as well and it features some of the most well-known species that used to roam the Earth, ranging from the prehistoric dinosaurs, to the more recent dodo bird, or the well-equipped saber-toothed cat. Unlike regular animals, these require slightly special treatment, especially when it comes to food and living conditions.
Cure diseases and revive new species
The previously mentioned mini-games have different purposes, but they are all critical in order to advance through the story and unlock more secrets. Thus, while some of them throw you into a first-person perspective and challenge you to personally tranquilize a pack of angry dinosaurs, other are more subtle and ask you to solve fossil puzzles in the laboratory, in order to obtain and revive new species.
All of these games make the title more fun and extend the experience by quite a lot, especially those that allow you to switch perspective and get a closer look at your exhibits. Speaking of which, the graphical quality has been heavily improved as well and the new animals are very nicely modeled, featuring all the right characteristics and different behaviors.
Plenty of fun and stuff to admire
In case you enjoy animals, or just want something relaxing and colorful to play in lazy afternoons, Zoo Tycoon 2: Extinct Animals might be what you are looking for. Furthermore, the huge amounts of content should keep you busy for quite some time.
