Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection has excellent graphics. The level of detail in all of the animals is very well done.

Gameplay is limited as the game is designed for the Xbox which has far more limited gameplay compared to a PC. Players can drop enclosures in an isometric view and then enjoy the animals from the ground level.

Compared to the older Zoo Tycoon releases, Ultimate Animal Collection has missed the mark to some extent. The animal interactions are one of the more favorable features, the game’s AI has been overhauled compared to earlier releases. There is a zoo vehicle that can be driven around.
