Nintendo's exclusive Sims spinoff moves out of the forest and into the jungles, deserts, and river beds of Africa for another adventure in taming, training, and playing with wild animals. SimAnimals Africa features a new, more playful art style and a wide selection of new creatures, but the gameplay once again involves picking up and placing animals in stimulating environments where they can thrive and be happy. Players can interact with a variety of different animals, such as lions, zebras, gazelles, and gorillas, and every species has a unique skill that can be used to maintain the serenity of an environment, unlock new landscapes, and discover special items. DS gamers get the added bonus of special platform-specific creatures, such as aardvarks, parrots, and cheetahs, and players can use the stylus and microphone to interact with the animals. Gamers earn special reward badges for collecting rare items, and two friends can team up to reach their goals faster in co-op mode. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
