Hands down, a childhood memory and great game! When I was a little gamer, I would play this game all the time. Building theme parks my way and style. This game is STILL such a masterpiece with old graphics that work fine for the gameplay. You can freely make your own park on Sandbox mode or start from old ones in campaign mode. If you like theme parks and creating games, this is a must. Furthermore, you can design your own rollercoasters and place down food and drink buildings for the visitors to eat and...drink. Pretty much everying you can do in a theme park slammed on this game! You can make pools, including wave pools aswell. Hire entertainers, janitors, engineers, and sercurity guards to make guests including yourslef feel right at home. When I found out this was on steam I instantly bought it. I want you to do the same thing.
BUY IT NOW.

PROS:
+ My childhood game.
+ Good graphics to this date.
+ Unlimited Possibilites
+ Make your own everything.
+ Campaign and Sandbox mode.

CONS:
- Creating hills is nearly impossible and ruins your park.
- Animal's are hard to do in this game aswell as creating a good waterpark.

10/10 '' Oooh memories of my childhood.''

A near-perfect game, I'll say.

The addictive nature and abundance of content on offer just makes this a stellar Rollercoaster tycoon, management, sim., action, RPG...whatever. Heck, even if you get tired after career mode, the godly sandbox - and other build options too - will keep you playing like as if it's you trying to perfect your own model railway; except for the fact that there will be a phallic-shaped pool.

Yet, above all, the game engine is old. I mean it - Nerd³ (a YouTuber I adore) had to stop building his park due to the game just being unstable and slow; even his rig blew the specs for this game out of the water! But then his park was full of crap here and there. It just makes me hope that RCT4 exploits modern hardware for full potential...if Atari even TRIES to make the game good. Okay, quasi-tangent over.

All in all, RCT3: Platinum's seemingly never-ending torrent of content has kept me going for some time (nearly 60 hours, to be exact), despite showing it's age. And if Atari does make us glare daggers when it comes to the questionable sequel - PC, NOT MOBILE - we'll still have this.
