There is a lot of potential with Theme Park Studio. I can see this filling the massive RCT size hole in my heart. This is early access so be prepared not to expect a complete product. I will update this review as I run into things worth mentioning, or as the game gets updated to new phases. If you have any questions I will be happy to help!
-Custom everything! You can truly make unique parks.
-The graphics really bring your park to life. Makes other theme park sim games look like they are from the early 2000's! (Sadly most are lol)
-Options, options, options! You can build almost anything with the importing feature. You can make any model in a program like Sketchup and have it preserved perfectly in TPS!
-High replayability. The game will last as long as your imaginations does. I was still playing RCT2 to this day, and this game trumps it with all of its options of building.
CONS (This is early access so don't let this scare you off! They will be hopefully fixed as it continues through development.)
-The view controls are weird at first. Wish there was a way to change them in the settings but I can't find any settings! I'm sure this will be fixed right away though.
-I was shocked by the patk size. I was expecting more to be honest. It's not small by any means, but I can see it becoming a problem. Hopefully this will change in a later realease.
-Due to it being early release, there are no rollerocasters yet. This is a big selling point to some so just wanted to put that out there. They will be added soon though, and they look great!
-The game has some bugs, as can be expected with any early access game. Pantera is hard at work at improving and bringing us a great product in Theme Park Studio!
Overall, I think the game is well worth the purchase! It has a high learning curve to really bring out the best of it, but it will be well worth learning. Enjoy building the theme parks of your dreams!
