Even with occasional design quirks and bugs holding it back, I adore this game as is. Similar to Planet Coaster, I think it'll get better over time, and Frontier will surely flesh out the species list with DLC packs. But even if that doesn't happen, I'll be satisfied. Some of us have been waiting decades for a game like Planet Zoo to come along and scratch our Zoo Tycoon itch. Now that it's here, I can't get enough.
Planet Zoo is a complex, deep simulation game with too much to give, if you can get past the minimalist tutorials.
Planet Zoo is the best way to build a park with animals. It looks great. It's utterly charming. And it just makes you happy, which is ultimately, the point. Planet Zoo isn't perfect, and it's definitely not a game to play in short spurts considering how one must learn the game's systems. However, there is a deep level of immersion here. If you want to take the time to do it, you can set up the zoo of your dreams, complete with lions, tiger, and bears. In many ways, this is one of the best management sims Frontier Developments has ever made.
