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 creatures, such as lions, zebras, crocodiles, 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. There are more than 70 rare bugs, fruits, and flowers to find, and new mini-games let players use their Wii Remote to pet and play games with the animals, making it easier to progress through the overall adventure. Gamers can also choose to play as one of the various creatures, allowing them to water the foliage as an elephant, kick fruit off trees as a zebra, or chase after gazelles as a lion, among many other activities. ~ Christopher Brown, All Game Guide
