Zoo Tycoon is a business simulation developed by Blue Fang Games and released by Microsoft Game Studios. It is a tycoon game in which the player must run a zoo and try to make a profit. Although first released for Microsoft Windows and Macintosh in 2001, it was ported to the Nintendo DS in 2005. It was followed by two expansion packs, Zoo Tycoon: Dinosaur Digs and Zoo Tycoon: Marine Mania, which were released in 2002, as well as a sequel, Zoo Tycoon 2, released in 2004.
Zoo Tycoon needs a Pentium III 733MHz or Athlon 5350 processor coupled with a GeForce FX 5200 to run system requirements at recommended high graphics settings. This will return around 60FPS at 1080p screen res. Another thing to consider is the DirectX capability of your GPU. Zoo Tycoon needs a GPU capable of running DirectX 9. To summarise, Zoo Tycoon needs around a 16 year old PC to play at recommended settings.
