Our videos of Zoo Tycoon

Another exclusive game available on Microsoft's console, Zoo Tycoon, is given the Gamersyde with 4 gameplay videos. The game is actually quite nice, even if we're not management games enthusiasts, it is not difficult to understand the gameplay mechanics thanks to the various tutorials which are very informative. The game has also some good ideas thanks to the integration of interactions with animals using Kinect.
Update: Added 1080p screenshots.

was that sacasm? the lion looked like a robot having a seizure...lol.

they missed a trick too, they could have had kinect capture your face and make a reflection map on the glass.

They missed a lot of tricks with Kinect around launch, for instance NBA 2k14 looks amazing when it is right in front of me but for "My player" I can't scan my face. Dafuq?

I can't help but think that Gamersyde's billboard screenshot for Zoo Tycoon is in dedication and remembrance of Skittles.

You can reflect your own image with kinect if you "approach" your face from the TV :)

That's an odd holding pen for a lion. A glass screen a few feet tall and a wall a child could hop over. Never very safe that, is it? I know, I know. Because game and all that. The Tiger isn't doing the robotic fit thing, though.

Slow down there. Let's focus on things that they promised Kinect would do that it never did rather than things that were never promised and it never did.

Giant Bomb playing this was the best. When you call a buggy, it comes out from nowhere and drifts by itself in front of you real badass like. You can say BEEP BEEP and the car will honk. You can waterboard bears. "GREAT FUCKING GAME"

Christ, that lion can easily break out and kill someone.

I saw screens of Zoo Tycoon's gameplay and i was not impressed. then saw it's been getting pretty good scores compared to other games so i checked this game out a little more, it's not as bad as i thought it would be.

It has pretty good looking detail for the animals, they move pretty realistic. this game is good for families but still not my kind of game.

Looks like something my kids will probably really enjoy.
