One of the things that immediately struck me when booting up Planet Zoo was the sheer beauty of the game’s visuals. Guests, zoo animals, and the environment are rendered in great detail, and the game even allows you to zoom in so closely on things like individual kiosks and snack shops that you can see your vendors typing in amounts on their cash registers.
Through the game’s animal camera feature, you can also zoom in on animals through a tracked camera, allowing you to follow your favourite zoo animals and admire their individual behaviour and expressions up close. This is worth doing, too, since each animal included in Planet Zoo is impressively realistic, both in looks and behaviour. As a result, it’s easy to while away the hours watching a pair of Bengal tigers or a pack of lemurs.
