I love this game,I had the first one and I liked it but the graphics in the second one are really great. They are also so much more options like paleontologist mode, dino curing mode, dino tranquilizer mode, unlimited cash and visitor's view! The marine animal training is really cool and you can invent your own show. Personally, I think it's really worth it and if you liked the first one, you will definitely love this one!!! It's more appropriate for older kids because it's a little complicated and you have to manage all aspects of the zoo!
