Top Critic Average
Basically a 'complete edition' of the original release, Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection adds enough to keep both fans and newcomers happy, providing challenge for those who want it and a sandbox mode for those wanting a more laid back experience.
Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection is definitely a better effort than the first release of the title at the start of the generation though still not entirely where it should be.
Zoo Tycoon comes back more complete than ever, with 4K enhancements and HDR support in a title fit for young and old with more than an addictive gameplay. New challenges and new content comes in this Ultimate Animal Collection, which despite the somewhat rough controls, make it indispensable for those who love management games.

Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection may be just another sim at its core, however the developers give the player some good gaming mechanics and spectacular 4K graphics. The control system is a little so-so but overall it still works well on this new console. So if you're looking for your next sim fix, Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection ticks the right boxes.
Zoo Tycoon: Ultimate Animal Collection is a solid management game. It has lots of content, solid mechanics to satisfy tycoon fans, and apart from a few gameplay and control issues, should please aspiring moguls and animal lovers alike.
The game offers nothing more than some good animal visuals. What remains is a management game without any challenge and spoiled by an awful UI.
