Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
I've seen some pretty mediocre reviews for Zoo Tycoon 2, but I think this game goes beyond fabulous. As soon as I purchased the game, I could easily build wonderful zoos with the help of the tutorials, which were easy to understand and showed you all the key points you had to know. The gameplay, graphics, and sounds were 150% better than in the first ZT. The Zoopedia allows for easy-to-read information about all of your animals. This game is perfect for any family. Parents can play with their children, and any child can easily play on their own.
Of course, there are a few low points to such a great game. The graphics totally improved from the first ZT, but there can still be improvements made. Sounds could definately be better, and although the appearance of water and biomes improved incredibly, more realistic graphics and motions of the grasses and motion of the water could most definately be improved.
But overall, I think Zoo Tycoon 2 and all of the Extension Packs are: -A great family game anyone can play -Fun and educational -Easy to learn and play -and a great game everyone I know loves!
