"Zoo Vet 2 Endangered Animals" Review
As a member of zoo team, you get your own office. On the office wall is a map of the zoo showing the animals that need care (food and quick treatment) and those animals who are need personal attention. Animals needing quick care give you a question (usually type of food to give them and then one about how to solve a medical problem) and a list of options.
First starting out it's not always easy to figure out what you should do next. The notes will give you the course of action if you do get confused or can always be ignored for a challenge. Perfectionists can replay cases to increase their score. The scoring is more of a personal challenge. A low score won't prevent you for moving forward to another case.
The game is as hard or as easy as you want it to be. It's not all that hard after a couple of cases and remembering the procedure for finding out problem. "Zoo Vet 2" is not a game for all ages. Preteens and younger kids are more likely to be entertained than adults. When I played I had my 7-year-old gamer sit and play with me. He commented that the choices and questions were the same after going through a couple animals that needed care. The in-depth cases he needed help with. I don't see kids much older than 11 or 12 finding much challenge. Kids, younger than 10, will enjoy playing as long as there is an adult to help. Otherwise it could turn into an exercise of frustration.
