I love the fact that you can run a rollercoaster car travelling at over 100km p/h into the butt of a dude wearing a tiger costume who is dancing for little children... and after getting launched into space and back he stands up like it was nothing, and thinks its worth his minimum wage payement
Also re-naming a chicken stall to KFC and charging like $100 per bucket

This is a game that take some time and dedication to truely enjoy. Yes there are people out there who love to just line up all the peeps into the main area, and just blast them to smitherines. This is fun yes, but this is the playstyle that would lead to reviews of "not having any replay-ability". This is just based on how that person played the game, ignore it, and move on. If you have patience, and a good creativity, make a campain world, and you can prosper. There is sandbox (even for those that are creative it is an amazing outlet) which is like any game's creative mode, allowing infinite building. This has been one of my top five games for most of my life, and will most likely remain there.
Graphics 7/10- While the look of most things is amazing, closer up you can almost taste 2006, but that aside the gameplay it-self is amazing (I personally have not looked into it, but I'm quite sure someone out there made a texture pack or twenty)
Gameplay 10/10- It allows many stories to be played, and can take quite a while (My current time from steam is flawed, I actually have had this game since 2009, and have logged at least 200 hours)
Replayability 9/10- as I said, the game is indeed boring for those without patience or creativity, and I tend to lack in patience, this is my own personal opinion (From any official opinion, I would easily give it a 10/10)
Overall 9.5/10 Amazing game, and a texture pack would put the icing on the cake

*Note*
For those of you that are the crash and burn kinda people, just letting you know, the peeps are indestructable, believe me I tried VERY hard (Crushing, drowning, melting, more crushing, smashing, throwing, dropping, etc.)

All in all I hope that based on your personal experiences with you own past gaming, you can enjoy this game as well. A excellent use of your $20.

This game is well worth it, but I'd check out the game in pre owned stores before purchasing this game on steam as it is quite an old old game. So much to discover. My best ever game.

Nothing beats RCT2, however this comes pretty close. Once you've got your head around the 3D graphic style, it's a very fun game

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 is a very creative game you have alot of power on what goes on in sandbox mode, the single play is fun yet challenging you have to sort out problems and make it succsessfull.

There is not much to say about RollerCoaster Tycoon3 but if your looking for a creative game deffinatly check this one out :).

Not near as good as as the first two, but still good.
I still like the game, but it's not as good as it was when it just got released.
I already played too much RollerCoaster Tycoon ones the title got on steam, wich is rather sad.
But I can still recommend this game to everyone who likes RollerCoaster's and/or management games.
It's not near perfect though. Playing this for too long makes you barely want to play it ever again.
The game can be stressfull as hell if you don't read the objectives well. Other than that, there's always sandbox.
Sandbox is literally unlimited money and what not. So if you don't like objectives you can still go crazy there.
If I were to rate it it would get a 7/10. It's good, but it's not the same as the first two games.

Its a brilliant game but the graphics suck on mac. Water relections don't work and if you ride a rollercoster at night the track's textures glow white and ruin the experience. Oh and anti aliasing is permanantly disabled. Its not even like I have an old mac I have one of the high end ones.

other than that I really enjoy the game. Just wish they would fix these issues
