    Zoo Tycoon 2 - продолжение получившей в свое время заслуженное признание поклонников жанра игры Zoo Tycoon. Как и прежде, в Zoo Tycoon 2 нам предстоит посвятить немалую долю своего времени управлению зоологическим садом. Несколько новых режимов, включая такие как Zoo Guest, Zoo Keeper и Photo Safari, предоставят игрокам возможность прогуляться по зоосаду в качестве посетителя или же выступить в роли управляющего. Встроенная в игру зоо-энциклопедия содержит множество увлекательных фактов из жизни братьев наших меньших. Более 30 видов экзотических животных из всех уголков Земли, широчайший спектр объектов, зданий и строений, возможность влиять практически на любые аспекты жизни зоопарка - всё это, вкупе с отличной 3D графикой и продуманным до мелочей интерфейсом, сделает экскурс в мир животных интересным, увлекательным и ярким.
