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.

Love this game, hours of amusing fun! I decided to see if I could pick my grizzly bear up and place him outside of his enclosure. I was so happy to find out that I could! Bear chasing people around the park... so fun!

This really is an amazing game. I've heard that the second one is better, but for me, this is hands down the best amusement park sim I have ever played. The platinum version gives you RTC:Soaked which is an awesome water park addition and RTC:Wild, which adds animals and allows you to make your own safari, something like Animal Tycoon 8.8/10

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

The glory that is RCT3... loved this game since I was a kid. It has something for all gamers, whether you want to be upstuck and businesslike making the pinnicale of rollercoaster cash cows, or mess around and torture the peeps by trapping them all in your park without food, drink, washrooms, or evilest of all.... no sun cream. There's also the inbetween of making some kicking coasters and what not. Now the game is damn old by now, but still shows the care and precision put into the game. but who cares about graphics...

*One overlooked feature is the simplicity of the savefiles on the computer, so shareing saved coasters and parks is wicked easy, just a matter of dropping the file into the right folder.

over all, buy it, you probably will not regret it. It was worth $20 when released, and in all honesty, hasnt depreciated much. The fact that it is available on steam allows for it to be even easier to play and use, with no need to use the disc, although I have noticed that the load times are somewhat longer without the disc.

PS. MAKE A PROPER FOURTH ONE ATARI!!!! and it is nice to see frontier still kickin it.

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

roller coaster tycoon 3 is a survival horror game in which the tides are turned and you are the sick evil master of a hellish place you create in which people are forced to ride to their deaths on unfinished rollercoasters. you can also shoot at endangered wildlife and make enormous pools with diving boards and the diving boards don't have to have water underneath.

Lots of depth, kinda easy, clumsy controls, and a great Tiger Freedom Simulator 2014.

But the controls are unintuitive as hell. Seriously.

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.

Excellent way to spend spare time whether it is constructing computer crashing rollercoasters or completely underwater theme parks. Although this game has its limits it almost never disapoints.
