I started off slowly, knowing how much fun these kinds of games can be. Built a roller coaster. Built a pool. However when it was time to build a water slide I somehow found my sanity slowly slipping away.

The slide was much longer than the pool, causing my guests to be sent like missles through the grass on their backsides. Cheers and happiness turnes into screams of pain and fear.

I couldn't stop then though. I had seen too much. Suddenly my roller coasters would send the lowly peeps into the sky, only to fall into a fiery death. Zoo animals ended up uncaged, running amock in my park. The peeps looked to me for mercy but saw nothing but insanity.

10/10 would destroy again.

This game could use more creative objectives other than the few recycled ones (impress the park inspector, raise the park value, and have a coaster with _____ are the worst examples). Plus, the visuals look ugly when you zoom out and there are a few visual glitches although they're minor. Besides those two issues this is a great game. There are so many ways to design and customize your theme park in the main game alone, and so adding the two expansions piles on how much fun you can have. The Wild! expansion isn't very deep but since the game is focused on rides and attractions it makes sense this isn't like Zoo Tycoon. This game will provide you with hours and hours of content. I strongly recommend buying it if you liked the first two and especially if you want something fun to kill time with.

I would rather buy the first installment or better yet get the second installment and install Open RCT2 that allows you to play Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 with friends or even do more hardcore ride designs.

This game is an absolute blast, if you want a challenge give scenarios a go or if you just want to make the best park possible sandbox is perfect. The level of customisation for a game that it 10 years old is unbelievable and the different types of scenery (Western, Sci-fi, Prehistoric and so on) gives way for endless theme park possibilities. My only gripe is that when your park starts filling up the game gets a bit laggy but that is understandable for such an old game.

Hold on to your cotton candy and grab a barf bag, cuz this game stands the test of time. I bought it on the cheap thinking I'd sink 20 minutes in it for the nostalgia, but it's still a great game. Difficulty can be adjusted for an actual challenge or sandbox mode is always a blast. If you'd played this at a younger age - go for it. If your into Sim games at all - go for it. Value is probably closer to $10.00 - $15.00 versus the $20.00 it is not on sale, so wait for a sale.

Great game, but has an absolutley aweful tiling system that becomes very frustrating to use when creating scenery. trying to build on any surface that is a micropixel different in height causes your attractions to be above the ground, where pathing to them becomes difficult and sometimes impossible. the issue is that i cant seem to find a way to fix the issue using any of the tools available to change scenery height. other than that unfortunatley crucial negative, its a great game..

Very fun simulation builder. Simple to use. Shows its age but has no desernable flaws. Pathing can be tricky and making rides work together in close proximity is tricky. But a very enjoyable game!
