Unfortunately, the devil is in the details, and the equation ends up being far more complex: Zoos + DS + poor graphics + tedious minigames + simplified tycoon game = a slightly above-average portable management sim that's not ideally suited to the system.
That's a far less sound bite-friendly quote that the publishers won't be in a hurry to put it on the box. It's also far too long to read comfortably as an opening gambit, so let's get on to what makes Zoo Tycoon 2 so ... slightly above-average."
