Many people have called Arabian Nights one of the best UXPs. However,it has been criticized for lack of variety, by a small amount of people. Also some people have trouble getting their animals to eat. A member on zoo tycoon volcano commented, "Yet, with so many more varied UXPs coming, with amazing animals, and one even coming out with a new biome, I'm hoping that Island Excursions can do better."
