The lions, tigers and bears of your local zoo have been packed into the new 3D Zoo Tycoon video game for your computer. If you're a fan of the critters, you can grab the whole game and run your very own zoo - right down to makin' sure you feed them properly! But, you can also grab the game demo and take this game for a spin without spending a dime. Here's the scoop on what makes this game cool, and how to get the free trial.

Where the Wild Things Are!

Being able to build your dream zoo is great fun but Zoo Tycoon 2 doesn't stop there. First off, you get all kinds of info on the animals that live in your zoo - everything from what they eat to the flavor (ick!) of their poo, no joke. But, the really wicked thing is that once you've built your humongous mega-cool superzoo, you can enter the 3D mode and check it out like a tourist. You can even climb into the pens with the animals!

    I'm pretty sure that EVERYONE knows that testingcheatsenabled true code. If you didn't, right here fellas. But there's MORE. Let me tell ya.  NOTE: Some of these only work for PC. I'm not sure about console as I've never actually tried.  familyfunds [lastname] [moneyamount]- get as much money  as you want.   freerealestate- enables you to buy ANY house you want (must be done in map mode otherwise it's useless)  Buydebug- lets you buy ANYTHING at all.  enableLlamas [on/off]- this one is personally my favorite due to how funny it is. It gives a message saying "Llamas enabled."  constrainFloorElevation [true/false]- allows all terrain adjustments regardless of objects, Sims and other structures on them.  Know some more?

    My favourite Pokemon is probably Magikarp, as when it evolves it is UNIMAGINABLY strong. I have one in Pokemon Red!
