Frontier Developments has released its latest simulation game Planet Zoo, and we’ve rounded up the scores for you.

From the creators of Planet Coaster, the zoo simulation game Planet Zoo is out today. You can look over review scores for it below.

In it, players will travel the globe on a quest to build zoos and learn to care for a variety of animals. Each will think, feel and explore the world around them.

You have the option to either build a new zoo or upgrade an existing one. This can be accomplished in Franchise, Career, Challenge and Sandbox Modes.

At launch, over 70 animals will be available alongside six biomes. Expect varied weather types and a full night and day cycle which will impact zoo management and animal welfare.

You will need to balance animal welfare and conservation efforts, and of course, pay attention to your visitors and their needs. You will also need to pay attention to ticket sales and the various donations which pour in.

Also, it wouldn’t be a management sim without having to take into consideration the cost of staff and maintenance. Research facilities can be built, and it will be important to provide enrichment items and habitat customizations for your animals.

Planet Zoo features both offline and online play, with weekly and monthly Community Challenges. You can also trade animals online at the Animal Market with other players and share habitat and decoration blueprints.

A PC-exclusive, the game is now available through Steam for £34.99/€44.99/$44.99. The Deluxe Edition will run you £42.99/€54.99/$54.99.

Scores below are based on ten being the highest unless noted. As more scores role in, we will update the list.
