Ahh Steam I see what you did here. Your trying to take all my free time away from me! Dont worry you can have it. Ahh my childhood. Well over 1000+ hours on this baby and still kicking strong. When I found out they had it for steam and it worked on my new desktop instead of those funky colors, I was stoked! Now I am continuing my saves that are on my backup drives from years ago! Its a blast still to this day.

Heck I first got this game in elementary school at a Scholastic book sale. It was THE LAST DISK avalible. Man, to thinkthat if there was one more class before us, I may have never found out about this gem. Not a fan of the new 3D versions, wish they would go back to the old way and just update everything again. RCT2....forever and ever.

10/10 would go back to elementary and get disk again.

What smells like childhood? RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 does.
How many years have it been? I did some research and this game was published in 2002 !
Man I was such a little sht back then ...drowning people cuz they mad... making one of the rides super fast so it crashes killing James and his buddies.......dragging Jimmy to an unknown island cuz he helluh mad....and it seems like im still a little sht till this very day . ◕ ◡ ◕I use to spend hours camping that one guys face to turn red and drag him to the lakes.

Overall, this is a very addicting game. Helps you learn about marketing and how to handle customers *lol*

One of the greatest games ever made, don't listen to those negative reviews about it's incompatibility. It will work with Windows XP, Vista, 7, 8 (I've tried ALL as I have owned the game since 2002 as a disk, but recently bought it on Steam) It is a fantastic theme park building game! It may seem a little complicated at first for absolute newcomers, but to RCT major fans like myself, it's a fantastic, superb game!

Audio spektrum of this game you most likely will encounter and will stick with you for the rest of your life:

- Aiaugh, HÖÖÖÖ! (like a frikkin cow: the crowd)
- Ahgahahu (childish laughter)
- Toilet getting flushed
- Aieeeeee! (People screaming on the rides)
- Tiriri (message notification)
- Kaching! (Sweet money)
- The corny intro music

Oh, yeah, the game is about theme parks and roller coasters and such. It's good.

10/10 would remember these sound forever again

Some say that the original RCT was better than 2. They said RCT sold out and this was just a big ad for Six Flags. Others say RCT 2 is the best in the series, because RCT 3 lost its charm by going 3D.

You know what i say? Shut up! People just love to complain. RCT, RCT2 and RCT3 are all good games.

I defo recommend this game to play. I used to play this when i was a kid and it's my favourite one out the other 2, I was happy to see this on steam as i lost my disc years ago, had no choice but to buy it. Only problem i had was it had problems running on Windows 8 but i managed to get it sorted and it works perfectly. Now im riding the rollercoaster down memory lane :)

If your having problems with it running on Windows 8, Go to the local files (right click RCT2 on steam, click on properties, then click on local files and select browse local files) and right click RCT2 and selct "Create Shortcut". The shortcut should be on the desktop, double click the shortcut and it will launch the game (Thats what I did)

One of the best games of all time! If you truly tycoon, get this one rather than RCT3. It's smoother and the artwork is nicer, and the scale is just much better.

Small bit of advice: You will have to give RCT2.exe administrative priveleges and run it in XP Compatibility mode. I use Service Pack 2, but SP3 might work too.

The exact game that came out of cereal boxes I remember from many years ago, Rollercoaster 2 never ceases to amaze, both for those who are creative and those who simply enjoy tycoon-based games. Even if you're not a rollercoaster afficianado, I would still highly recommend this game for the unique and fun gameplay associated with it.

The only qualms I have is it is somewhat glitchy when it comes to graphics, which is expected for a game made many years ago attempting to run on Windows 7 and beyond.

10/10

A classic staple of the Roller Coaster Tycoon franchise, the 2nd installment is a great game for any theme park fan! The game's selections over rides can be great, though after a while its selection will get a bit boring. There isn't enough flat rides to go, Then again thats why we always have mods! It's design gives us a time of when video games were simpler. It can be fun to build roller coasters... or drown your guests. This game is fun for anyone, and I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Atari, Chris Sawyer, Theme Parks, Roller Coasters, or anything in that mix!

If you're more interested in gameplay than graphics, you will love this game. This is easily my all-time favorite game and that's saying a lot considering it's got the same graphics as the previous title from 1999. This is a slow paced game that you could easily put many hours into if you have time to kill.
