The massively popular Zoo Tycoon series has been fully re-imagined for the next generation, bringing a whole host of new features and gameplay options, not to mention larger than ever zoos, right into your own living room!

In the game, players have to manage their very own zoo, keeping all the animals happy so that they can keep guests happy, who will in turn spend money that can be pumped back into the zoo to keep the animals happy. It's one great big circle of... well, not life, so much as animal and human happiness.

Players can create unique and interesting zoo layouts to keep the animals in good spirits. They can also get down on the ground and, using Kinect, perform intuitive face-to-face interactions with animals such as adopting them and releasing them into the wild. The animals will actually recognise your voice and react to it. There are more than 100 animals in there, too. The game even reacts to the seasons to vary the gameplay!

For a more collaborative experience, why not team up with friends over Xbox Live to manage a zoo, or even take part in community wide events that will have a bearing on real-world events!

For all those gamers with a love of animals, Zoo Tycoon is a surefire hit.
