i didn't ever knew that i could enjoy myself with a non-violence game. Evry computer can run it (i think so :p) and it keeps you playing. i just have it a day but i think i'll keep playing this for a while, even if it isn't in sale, i think it's worth the money.

After the upgrade to Windows 10 (with the SecuROM which is attached to the CD version of this game) I couldn't install the CD version anymore as an error kept popping up after 68% completed. That's where I decided to buy this game again on my AMD FX(tm)-8350 Eight-Core Processor (4.50 GHz). At first it seemed to work. It loaded up my old parks and CSO, CFR and CTRs as I expected. But after several times saving a park and loading it up (which first always worked on my old version of RCT3) it keeps crashing after loading a park up. I tried to find the source for it, changed the graphics removed the RCT3.fc in Documents/RCT3/Parks and Structures file as this is always a major problem when copying an old folder and replacing the new one (has to do with the administrator rights) and tried to change the resolution (I'm using a widescreen so I'm using the option 1280 x 960 x 32) but that doesn't fix the source of the crash. I'm desperate regarding this, and felt the need to share this for you as (eventual) buyer using Windows 10. Many like me are maintaining this problem, but the strange thing is that some don't at all! Maybe it has to do with the fact I'm using custom theming and custom rides, and somewhere a corrupt file got between my data but then again the map exactly as I have now always used to work on my old pc (which was a Windows XP and even on Windows 8.1 it works fine). So if you want to buy this even though you know the consequences which may come with this, I give you the advice to ALWAYS KEEP YOUR GAME UPDATED when using custom theming! It may help you in solving a (future) crash you may maintain like me.

Other than my personal failures I'm maintaining, I highly recommend this game if you like sandbox modes and theme parks (or fairgrounds, as you can build your own fairground with the right theming). The game also have a career option of you managing an already existing theme park. It comes with a lot of features, and I promise you it won't let you down! It have a firework, laser and watershow editor option of creating your own shows! You can hire and fire employees. In short: all what comes with managing a theme park!
But with that and with the malfunction I shared above, I warn users using a high-tech computer system as this game is dating from 2005 (2004 in the Northern America). The game is not updated as there is already a new version of Rollercoaster Tycoon on the market: Rollercoaster Tycoon World. So buying this with a high-tech PC is a gamble. As I said, some are lucky and some (like me) are not unfortunately. You got it all in the hand of how expansive you want the game to be.

It's a great successor to previous games. Great graphics for its time, the ability to ride everything in your park, great UI; there has always been a unique style to RCT.

If it's so great, why thumbs down? Well, because it crashes. It's a known issue that has yet to be resloved. I recommend not wasting your money unless some saint decides to patch it. For me, this problem has rendered the game unplayable.

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!

This game is an amazing roller coaster builder, and the amount of fun you can get from building and riding roller coasters is amazing! I really enjoy building and riding the roller coasters the most, but if you arent one for building, you can manage and run your very own amusement park:-) The possibilites are endless and when you buy the game, it automatically comes with all of the dlcs!

Pros - Game modes are fun and challenging
- You can build a bunch of differnt roller coasters with different themes
- After you place, or build a coaster you can ride them!
- With the wild dlc you can build a massive zoo, and the soaked dlc, you can build a resort like park
- The peeps faces are funny and even as old as this game is, it has great game play

Cons - If you dont care to build roller coasters and enjoy riding rides, this game is not for you
- The graphics are a little bit dated


I want rctw now lol

Since Rollercoaster Tycoon World is total crab, this game shows even more, how good it was back then and still is. Flawless gameplay, great animations, good econemy and nearly endless possiblities. One of my alltime favourites.

I would reccomend this game for people who are big fans of coasters or has some spare money and wants to play a game they do not already have.

This game is fun to play for the level of creativity you put into the roller coasters and of course your parks. You will find yourself puting multiple hours trying to build a bigger and better park for your peeps.

However the amount of scenery in this game is small and you would have to go to websites like RCTGo to get coaters like the B&M coaster because they are not in the game.

But if you put in the time and comitment you will see that this game is worth playing over and over again.

8/10

I bought this game for my brother, who longed to get the full game. He tried to get the game anyway he could. He tried to get the game for free but ended up getting viruses. So i brought the game for him a few days ago, and he loves it. Everything he expected. Bought it from a sale. This game is amazing in all levels, but not worth 20 bucks. Wait for a sale, then buy it. Very fun to play, will have you hooked. It's fun to discover everything in the game. Get it from a sale. You will enjoy this.
