Game Review (written by Amiebug5) Added on: 01/31/2007
SimPark is a wonderful game!! When I got my first computer back when this game was new, SimPark was the first game I ever bought. The moment I got home, I installed SimPark onto my computer. When the install was complete, I went straight to work, mastering the intricate details of the game. All I remember thinking is how cool this game was.
You actually got to run your own park, filled with animals, plants, and stuff for people as well. I loved testing out the different climates offered in the game, seeing what wildlife could survive where.
I generally chose the warmer climates, which were easier to manage, and had more species that could thrive in them.
At first, I always had problems with managing the money that was allotted to me every year in the game. The amount of money you were given was small, so you had to use it wisely. I finally discovered that you should plant a few shrubs, because they multiply faster than the other types of plants, and they can feed plenty of animals. I would plant quite a few trees, because they did not multiply as fast as the shrubs or flowers. Rarely ever did I have to buy animals, because if you make an appropriate environment for them, they will
come in on their own. The only time I would ever buy animals was if I wanted to devote a park to a specific species.
Rizzo the frog was always there to tell you when you were doing something wrong, and the head ranger would give you a promotion if you managed your plants and animals well. After your park lasted long enough, it could thrive on its own, without you adding any new plants or animals. If you created a park that could do that on its own, you knew you had finally mastered the game.
After I had earned all the ranger promotions and felt like I had successfully mastered the game, I started experimenting with using some of the disasters found in the game on my own. I would get a big park started, then start a fire, have an alien landing, or a kudzu attack. I found this part of the game to be just as fun as creating the park itself. I guess the creators thought the same, because they made it an option that you could start your own disasters at any time. SimPark was my first game, and it remained one of my favourite games for years to come. SimPark is truly great.

Great Game I use to play years ago. It was fun creating your own park and creating new scenarios by loading up on certain animals and trying to prevent extinction of others.

This was one of my favorite games as a kid, especially the identifying bits. The Bird Songs were always interesting, but fairly accurate. A great game all around.

I loved this game, and Sim Safari. It brings back memories from when I was 12 and 13. I even learned from it.

Loved it! Brings me back to the good ol' days when games were "fun". I really enjoy this game, and my kids like it too!

SimPark, what a great game. I first played this game when I was 12. It was simple and fun. It's the way it should be. It's easy to catch on and find ways to make your park more interesting. Things such as keeping up with your animal and creating amusements for the kids are simple and enjoyable. It's very colorful, something to keep you busy for a month or so. I played this for a total of 28 hours with good experiences. It's fun addictive and better than the typical park sim. I recommend this game for kids 10 to adults. A basic understanding is needed.
