If you're looking for a realistic vet sim, Wildlife Camp may not be the game for you. The way African mysticism is thrown into the storyline feels a bit jarring and doesn't seem to fit well with the rest of the game. But if you're just looking for a fun open-ended adventure that will let you explore a virtual landscape, play around with wild animals and customize them to your whims (Dora the Explorer fans can go ahead and make a blue monkey if they want to), then this bargain-priced game makes a very nice choice. It's got attractive visuals, a decent amount of variety, and a very positive we're-helping-the-world vibe.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
