This is the best expansion pack in graphics yet! The water and animals are so realistic! You can adopt a fiesty otter or the majestic Orca (Killer Whale!) You can train them, too. Best of all you can swim with them and dive underwater, also! Not all animals will let you swim with them though.
If you have ever seen Finding Nemo's water, than this is the game equivilent to it! The animals seem to flow through the water, and the foliage is gorgious. I also love the remoras, angel fish, and other creatures that appear in your tanks, like squirrels and birds in the land exhibit.
Absoulutely spectactular. The ambience makes you feel like you are actually there. The animals click, rumble, snort, and squak to each other, too. It is simply entrancing! The guests sound realistic, too with their cries of laughter, fright, and surprise!
If you have a low memory card it REALLY slows down alot, but if you are patient it does not matter that much. Or if you got a new computer with a high performance graphics card, than you are A-OK! Some times it may just be me but the Galapagos Giant Tortoise makes my computer freeze up.
I am not one hundred percent sure what "LASTABILITY" is, but I guess this game lasts a long time. It NEVER gets boring! There is always something going on in the zoo, from an earthquake to a powersurge. Sometimes your workers even go on strike, it's cool but weird!
Overall I give this game a 5 star rating (like all of my zoos.) It is my favorite game by far, from it's kick-butt graphics that put other games to shame, to the soothing sounds that are created by your creatures, this game definately deserves 2 thumbs-up!
