Strategy games Dinopark Tycoon Review 1: Good at Sim City? Seen Jurassic Park? Then you will have a good chance doing well in Dinopark Tycoon. Your goal is to build up a huge dinosaur park. Of course you have to start out small with only a limited amount of cash. The first thing you have to do is to buy a suitable ground. Next you have to decide on what kind of fence you want around the ground like regular fences, electricity powered fences etc. Next you have to buy the actual dinosaur and the food it will need. And of course you need to hire people that will take care of your park. Everything is done in a great and easy-to-use interface where you can always get help. Once you have bought your first dinosaur you can go to the actual park and see it. Itís fairly detailed and shows exactly what you have selected as well as the visitors walking around in the park. Small things like that you hav to buy the correct food for the dinosaurs are included as well so it doesnít help you much if you buy meat to a dinosaur that only eat plants. As mentioned Dinopark Tycoon has a nice interface and the graphics are fairly good as well which makes the game easy to play since you can easily see the different between the dinosaurs, buildings etc. Itís a great game and if you are into the building games you wonít be disappointed at all. Several funny things are included as well. A well done game. Review 2: Ever seen Jurassic Park? So, this is the game to the movie. You run a Dino-Park and that's not so easy. It's not just buying some dinosaurs and that's it. You gotta hire the right staff, if you think you could save money on maintenance you'll soon see: you can't, one of your dinos may escape if the fences are not in the right shape. You've also gotta care 'bout the meals for your dinosaurs - if they want meat, you can't feed them vegetables. All in all a nice little game, no Smash-Hit, but still worth a try if you like management-games - this one'll sure give you a grin or two. Review 3: One of the most original "business" games ever made, DinoPark Tycoon is a great concoction of education and strategy. Fans of Jurassic Park take note, here is the game you've been waiting for :) Construct and supervise your own dinosaur theme park, from the starting funds of $5,000 (yes, those modern dinos are a bit cheap). Although the box claims "Ages 8 and up," most kids younger than ages 12 or so will probably find DinoPark Tycoon too difficult and daunting, because there are many variables to keep track of, and managing the park's finances is not easy. You are in charge of borrowing money, buying dinosaurs, building fences to keep them in, hiring tour guides, building parking lots, setting admission fees, and many more. There are many strategies at your disposal to increase revenues, such as adding dinosaurs, selling dinosaur babies, opening concession stands, advertising the park, and raising ticket prices. The game's educational aspect is very strong, as it provides many kinds of information to aid decision making, including a dinosaur fact guide, daily records, quarterly financial reports, and a calendar (with months that tick by). Players will learn graphing skills, estimation, supply and demand, and money management as they track profits. Not to mention a LOT of dinosaur anecdotes. The game includes may innovative ideas, such as the ability to buy seeds so you can grow your own plant life for the herbivores. Every facet of running a DinoPark is factored in, including different prices in meat or plants that you must buy to feed park denizens, different kinds of fences, etc. Knowledge of each dinosaur's characteristics is important to success. For instance, you have to know how strong and aggressive of a dinosaur you have to determine if they need an electrified fence. Fail to contain a T-Rex, and youíll have mass panic on your hands. As a business sim, DinoPark Tycoon is very enjoyable as a "light," humorous sim that is quite addictive. As an edutainment title, the game offers a lot of crucial dinosaur-related information, and kids will learn basic skills of economic management in a fun environment. Overall, this is one of MECC's best releases, and a must-have for practically everyone. Highly recommended. Review 4: A good attempt to make a very original tycoon. It inlcudes a lot of the ideas of new tycoon games, like zoo tycoon. You become the new owner of a park, but not a normal attraction park or a normal zoo. No, it's a zoo with only dino's. You get $5000.- and to be honest, that's not enough. Actually it's way too difficult to manage with this that little money. Well, hire staff, rent spots to put you dino's in, place fences, buy dino's and much more. With a little bit practice, you could be a real tycoon in this game. Graphics are ok, Sounds are not overwhelming, but allright, gameplay is a bit difficult and the addiction level differs every time you play this game, really. But the addiction level is pretty good though.
