DO NOT BUY THIS UNLESS IT IS ON SALE
I know that sounds harsh but it's something that has to be said.
A lot of people aren't recommending this game.
I see why. Roller Coaster Rampage is simply a game about Roller Coasters. That's it.
However, This game delivers everything that it promises. (I haven't seen much destruction in my playtime though.) The graphics for this game look 2007-ish, and not up to modern specs. The Coaster Creation is an innovative idea, although it takes a bit of getting used to. Most players would feel more comfortable playing this with a controller.
The campaign (as it's called in game) is merely a set of simple challenges that can be completed quite easily, and they seem very repetitive. There is only 1 park available in Roller Coaster Rampage, and it gets small and boring, fast. If you could walk around the park and visit other attractions, the game could be reasonably fun. However, you cannot.
Free-Play mode is where the game shines. The track can be easily created and then you can ride the insane monstrosity you've created (But I couldn't find a save button). It's pretty neat, but construction can get messy with lots of rails and support beams everywhere. When you hit high speeds the track seems to get choppy (even though the game renders at a nice 60 fps), and the railcars seem unable to follow physics.
Workshop support is 'Coming Soon!', but I have no idea how long that's been there.
But why do I recommend this game? It's simply a fun little time killer. I bought it for $2.50 during the Holiday Sale, and that's as much as this game is worth. If you're thinking about dropping $10 on this, wait for it to go on sale for $2 or less.
Graphics: 7/10 - looks cartoony, but a little on the low-def side.
Overall Gameplay: 6/10 Needs fine tuning, and a controller greatly helps.
Campaign: 5/10 - Average challenges that add little to mechanics and design.
Free-Play: 8/10 - Fun, but you cannot save tracks. Physics and Construction seem a bit wonky.
Overall Score - 6/10. Average, but definitely not worth $10. Wait for a sale.
