Zoo Tycoon 2: Extinct Animals Revive The Dead

Expansion packs rarely ever frequent the news circuit here on CB Games and it’s for a reason: Expansion packs aren’t all that cool if they aren’t all that cool. But in this case, how often is it that someone gets to say that Microsoft is reviving extinct animals? Exactly my point. In Zoo Tycoon 2's latest expansion pack, players will have 30 all new animals at their...uh...disposal.

Maybe ‘disposal’ isn’t such a good work, maybe “functionary entertainment” would be a better phrase. Regardless of semantics – after launching in 2004 for Windows PCs, Zoo Tycoon has gone on to garner awards and expansion packs that have prolonged the replay values. According to the press release, this latest expansion introduces “30 new animals and more than a dozen dinosaurs, ranging from the adorable dodo bird and massive American mastodon to the saber-toothed cat and T. rex, Zoo Tycoon 2: Extinct Animals provides new ways for players to experience the award-winning gameplay of Zoo Tycoon 2. Aspiring zoologists will be challenged to dig for fossils, bring animals that once roamed the earth thousands of years ago to life in the Extinct Research Lab, and wrangle rampaging dinosaurs with a tranquilizer gun.”
