I'll Be The first to admit that I don't regularly keep up-to-date with the business pages of the Hillingdon Evening Echo, but even with my limited knowledge of the financial world, I'm pretty sure that most modern-day 'tycoons' have little to do with zookeeping. I don't remember Alan Sugar getting any of his contestants to muck out the penguin shed, or seeing Donald Trump exhort the virtues of restocking the rare iguana cages. Maybe I missed those episodes.
Nonetheless, Zoo Tycoon is the first of the two games to sport the moniker and, well, it isn't really much cop. Basic management larks while keeping visitors to the snake pens and monkey houses smiling. And raking in the cash. It's all about the cash. Sigh. When did we stop caring about collecting magic stars and rescuing princesses? It's all gotten a bit too commercial around here.
