Planet Zoo review – a really wild time

In a recent look at Frontier’s furry new game in beta, I was left with the impression that Planet Zoo is a beast of a management sim, but one you’d still want to cuddle. Having now experienced the real deal, I can confidently say that initial reaction was spot on – the game is one hell of a meaty dish, but one I’m very glad I got my teeth into.

When you fire up the game, you’re presented with multiple ways to jump into your zookeeping adventure, with options to make it as objective-led or open-ended as you like. There’s a guided Career Mode, Challenge Mode (with a full economy and various objectives to tackle offline), a Sandbox Mode in which to go wild, and an online Franchise Mode to show off your creations to players around the world.

I spend the majority of my time in Career Mode, which drip-feeds you tutorial tips as you progress through various pre-made zoos. Taking your first steps, it’s difficult not to be struck by the game’s depth and scope. It seems like every factor you can think of that could have some influence – however minor or indirect – on an animal’s health and happiness has been modelled by developer Frontier.
