So glad I got this version. RCT1 brought good times back in the day, but felt a little dated. Had some apprehensions about RCT3, but it's very much the same, but with better camera controls, more rides, and more options. Very manageable specs. Doesn't even heat up my laptop. Good times!

Lots of fun. Once you get past the slightly awkward controls,camera angles and slightly bizarre contrast of graphics for people and background elements, hours of fun are to be had.

I wouldn't even spend a penny on this game. Everytime i try to load a world, it crashes, i try to lower the quality but it crashes. Also if you even try to change the screen size, seizure warning, the whole screen starts blinking black and white very quickly. I wouldnt reccomend wasting your money on a game that only crashes, and best yet, i dont get a refund :D .

Many people prefer RCT2 over RCT3 But to me RCT3 is the best. You can not only include rollercoasters, but firework shows, terrarforming, zoos, FREAKIN DINOSAURS, pools, and many stuff/mods to download from online. The graphics help you to experience the parks that the previous games couldnt do. You can ride your roller coasters and almost walk around in your own park.

Opens new park in sandbox

Really wanting to create a functional, working park with good rides.

Builds rollercoaster

Accidentally kills everyone in 50 foot radius

Peeps say "I want to ride Wooden Rollercoaster 1 Again!"

-Pros
Can drown peeps
-Make fully functional death camp
-Can set a wild, endangered, lion on park grounds
-Cons
-Can't kill park inspector
-Can't Reanact Harambe shooting with gorillas.

It's not uncommon for people to claim every now and then that the first game of any particular series is better than the latter ones. Either way, that concept won't apply in this case, as the third title of the Rollercoaster Tycoon series has gotten incredibly better, not only by better graphics, music, gameplay, expansion packs (aka DLCs nowadays), 3D engine etc. Well, I'm not saying that the previous ones weren't really good, it's just that there were some interesting improvements that were presented on this version, especially the tool to fast forward the time, which is insanely helpful. Another thing that is worth to be mentioned is fact that you can actually ride your custom-built rollercoasters, which nowadays it'd be awesome combined with VR technology (although the graphics could use some extra polishing). Besides the "campaign mode", there's also the sandbox option, where you can get to put your creativity / insanity into good use (if you wanna know what I'm talking about, look for the "Death Cab Roller Coaster Tycoon 3" on the web). Overall, although there're no Steam achievements or trading cards to get, this game is extremely fun and I definitely enjoyed to beat every single scenario available, being in my modest opinion one of the best tycoon games that were ever made.

You can make a dinghy slide with a chain lift speed of 1000 mph.

One of the best video games ever coded, designed and thought of. And the sweet smell of good'old memories -numerous hours I have spent on trying to plot out the best design for a Theme Park, including the hamburger and Turkish delight stalls, custom-shaped rollercoasters and those pathways going across the small islands I have located in the middle of a river. This game is a never-gonna-be-old legend, and the atmosphere when it's just about the sunset: simply priceless.

Personally, I REALLY ENJOY THIS GAME! It's super fun and I can't stop! There's only a few cons.
For Example, one of my lines ALWAYS gets stuck.
But, the amount of pros definetely make up for the cons.

Building a roller coaster can be a bit troubling at times but it's fun. Adding in rides is awesome and building structures isn't too dificult but I'm not good at it.

Probably a solid 9.2 or 9.3 out of 10.
