Another strong (yet stressful) management sim from Frontier Developments.

Planet Zoo is a wildly satisfying park-builder with a menagerie of lovely looking animals.

Planet Zoo is a complex, deep simulation game with too much to give, if you can get past the minimalist tutorials.

Planet Zoo has a lot of ambition and depth, but it often comes at too high a cost

Planet Zoo is a detailed management sim that's both rewarding and educational, and the cute animals certainly don't hurt.

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 simply wonderful; a bright and breezy park builder that gushes with enthusiasm for its charges. There's depth to spare here, pushing further than either of Frontier's most recent management games have, and it leans into its own identity, with a keen eye for the importance of education, animal welfare and preservation.

If your passion is building in videogames and you love animals, Planet Zoo is one of your best options if you have a PC.
