I really had fun playing with Dinosaur Digs. This expansion pack brings some cool new content as well as new ways to make your zoo grow and evolve. The dinosaurs theme is quite original and the new scenarios are entertaining enough to bring back interest in the original game even if the graphics haven’t really changed. Some will regret the lack of real new features and the overall smallness of this pack. Nonetheless this pack remains a great addition to Zoo Tycoon and is a must have for fans.
