IMG Previews Zoo Tycoon 2
1:02 PM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

IMG has posted a hands-on preview of Zoo Tycoon 2, the sequel to the popular zoo simulation from MacSoft. Here's a clip from the preview:

For those who played the original Zoo Tycoon on the Macintosh, you will be pleased to know that everything that made that game great has seemingly made the transition to Zoo Tycoon 2, and been made even bigger and better. There are over 300 different buildings in the game, and nearly 30 different animals. There is also an option to gain additional buildings, animals, and challenges by downloading updates from within the program over the Internet.

The single biggest change is the move to a true 3D engine. Of course, this ups the system requirements for the game beyond those of the original, but the trade-off is more than worth it. The 3D engine brings the game from a "sim zoo" to an immersive zoo experience.
