PC Gamer said it all: "With Wolf, Sanctuary Woods [had] a simulation that detailed the everyday life of wolves in the wild, challenging the player's skills in hunting, killing, mating, and other aspect of survival... Lion isn't quite the step beyond Wolf you might expect, but it does have its nice little touches... You can use the long grass to creep up on your prey; vultures circle overhead at the kill site; and your eyes glow a fierce amber in the darkness of the savannah night. This fresh approach to "edutainment" enlightened us painlessly, while entertaining as few games have done before." Definitely some of the best animal simulations ever made that successfully combine fun, realism, and educational content. Highly recommended!
