Absolutely no one is talking about Zoo Tycoon, for the Xbox One. Jeff didn't even know it existed before a few weeks ago, when someone on the podcast told him it was an xbox launch title.
That doesn't bode well, except for the fact that the Zoo Tycoon series is one of the best selling titles of the recent era. A WalMart staple, alongside Roller Coaster Tycoon, the game was on the shelves for years and years and people spoke highly of it.
Zoo Tycoon for the xbox One is one of the only titles I've read about that actually seems to USE the next gen features of this console generation.
For instance, the game uses the Xbox Cloud, supposedly, to allow up to 4 people to collectively create one park together online. No matter how dumb the game is, I feel like my brother and I would have a blast with that feature alone.
Apparently the game uses the Kinect to allow the animals in the game to recognize the player. That sounds pretty interesting. I guess it will also allow you to interact with them in a Nintendogs kind of way. I hate that kind of stuff, but my niece would be over the moon for it.
In the end, I feel like it definitely sounds more interesting than something like Ryse.
Is anyone planning to get it?
