I played this game a ton back whne I was a kid!
Brings back good memories I still enjoy playing this game now.

Even if your younger and never played this game back in the day I would recommend it!
1 & 2 are my fav.

I still have my first computer from when I was a kid still kicking around that I use to play old games like this but figured buy it on here so I can now easily play it on any computer.

This game is great if your new to ther series or at least the original game I highly recommend playing it!
If your old to the series like me then you already know its great so why are you reading reviews?

Had this game as a kid. Saw it on steam sale for a buck. As in...ONE DOLLAR. So I got it. And it's every bit as good as I remember it being.

There are so many things I could say about this game, but all you really need to know is that you are seriously wasting your time reading this review seeing as I'm not very good with words, and you could be using this time for something far more useful, like buying this game and experiencing immense nostalgia, and probably a little lack of sleep from staying up until all hours of the night playing this game........

Seriously, you're not still reading this, are you??!?!

This is one of the games I've grown up with, running a successful theme park can be satisfying at best as well as being a sadistic person can torture the guest and making terrible rides on purpose can also be satisfying as well. This game is one of those that has aged very well. This game is moddable via trainers which are made by other people. Despite this being able to get this off steam, the dreaded "error trapper" still exist at the worst of times. I can't say for sure about the sequels since I've never played them but I pretty much prefer this installment.

I freaking love this game, but the steam version has a LOT of bugs. I played 20 hours after downloading and saved about 6 parks, then I started having weird problems. After trying to save the game would immediately crash saying i/o error. Also when I tried to change resolutions the game would crash and I couldnt even do ctrl+alt+delete, I had to hard reset my computer to use it again. Im going to try and re-install and diagnose the problem but all in all this game is freaking awesome, but beware, you might get halfway through the game and have to restart all over.

Controls are impossilbe to find , like I had to download some dodgye file off a japanses website that porbs gave my pc cancer and other nasty diseases , so either find some 30 year old guy thats pl;ayed this or just watch a youtube vid like a normal person you ♥♥♥♥in degenerate ( srsly dont download ♥♥♥♥ off japanese website unless your actulaly japanses or soem weaboo scum bag) . this game is a great time waster and good for playing on a laptop on a long flight ect

People said to stay away from nostalgia because when you come back, it’s never the same.

That is not the case for RollerCoaster Tycoon.

Rank: 7/10
Recommendation(s): Don’t expect to play a classic on new systems. Play RCT2 instead.
Major Theme: For the real hardcore old school gamers.
Bought at Price: $1.62 (Steam Sale)

I might still have the real CDs for this game (yes CDs… Not DVDs). Rollercoaster Tycoon 1 and 2 were my go to games before I joined Steam.

I remember spending a lot more time on RCT2 than the first, but there are still some memorable parks in RTC1 that I still like to visit.

If you are new to the older Rollercoaster Tycoon games, pick up RCT2 (and OpenRCT2 if you are using Win 10/8). You will have a lot more to play around with, RCT1 is really just for those who had it part of their childhood.

The graphics are simple, the gameplay is simple. Nothing more really needs to be said about this game.

Let me just say that I remembered playing this as a kid on my old-world computer and having a great time in doing so! So when I found it on Steam, I was all for it! With the price it's at, it's a great deal for a great game! I, so far (knock on wood), have had no issues with it on my Win 7 computer despite the fact that it's such an old game. I definitely recommend it to people who remember the days where this was all the rage!

Tried to build a rollercoaster to make everyone scream and want to come back again. Made a rollercoaster that they screamed as they fell because I forgot to connect the tracks.

10/10 would have short term memory loss again

As a kid, i used to watched my older brother built up an epic park with well-designed roller coasters' structures with heaps of kids and money is seemingly never run out. When he starts to get bored of being their God, he saved up the game at their success peak and start to fauck up every-singe-shiets and start to injure people for fun, drop kids down the lake, flew people into the mid air and explosion in the rain etc.

Now that im an adult, and been playing this game constantly for the past weeks, i now understand exactly all of his effort and joy that he put into building his one of a kind roller coaster tycoon, and once its all done being game and fun, noone can stop you from being a nasty lil sheeeiitttt.
