Wild Earth: African Safari made Game Informer feel like they were in class again. For a game that delivers interactive education, this can be viewed as both a blessing and a curse. It stimulates the brain with a wealth of knowledge about Africa's wildlife, but comes off just as dry as a lesson a schoolteacher has been reciting for decades. The only goal of the game is to take photos of animals either by yourself or with up to four players in co-op.
While tasked with capturing them in certain behaviors, it doesn't matter how you frame the shot. Game Informer just took photos of animal butts and still managed to impress their tour guides, who are constantly filling your ear with interesting tidbits about the animals around you. Without any degree of difficulty, however, you don't feel like you are doing anything other than making your tour guides talk.
