This is a really enjoyable. brilliant, and charming game. RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 woos you with it's nostalgia merry-go-rounds and joyful screams as people ride the rollercoasters you built. The insane customisation and amazingly vast array of fun things to do and keep your guests busy in return getting more money to build more stuff.

The game runs very fast as it is an old game and you can see so much, of course it isn't a PERFECT game as it has some restricted ways on how to get some rides working and everything is on a grid. But even with it's irks it is a really wonderful game.

This was one of my childhood favorites. I remember when I had my old PC and had this and all of the expansion packs on it. It was just so much fun!

FEATURES:
- You can create roller coasters (duh).
- You can hire staff to entertain your visitors/clean up your park/fix your rides.
- You can rename individal people and staff to deliver torture to your worst enemy!
- You can build at such places as Alcatraz Prison and the Great Wall of China!
- You can also create food stands, souvenier shops, etc.
- You can be an ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ and charge people to use the only toilet in your park.

There are some downsides to this game however. For example:
- It will crash every now and again, but that's just because the game is old.
- The isometric view may screw you up a bit when it comes to building your coasters.
- Other bugs that I may have forgotten to mention.

This game for me only got better when I discovered OpenRCT2, a mod that enhances the game. BIG time.
Here's the link:
https://openrct2.org/

I definitely reccommend getting OpenRCT2 if you truly want to expand your experience with this game.

OpenRCT2 Features:
- Can make rides go faster than 500 mph! (Caution: this may crash the game if used excessively in one park)
- Can change the carts of every ride to something else (I.E: Replacing the regular roller coaster carts with a tram)
- Fixes (most) bugs from the original game.
- Adds in cheats so you can manipulate your customers/park to your very whim!
- Adds in MULTIPLAYER!! That's right, MULTIPLAYER!! (I haven't tried it for myself yet, but holy ♥♥♥♥ that is impressive to convert a game like this into a multiplayer experience)
- Fixes (most) crashes, unless you cause the crashes yourself.

Do I reccommend this game by itself? Yes.
Do I reccommend this game with OpenRCT2? The definitive choice.

10/10 for me.

As a bonus, here's some tips for both the standalone game and OpenRCT2 (based on the "Build Your Own Six Flags Park" Scenario):
- Start slow. Don't go right into building coasters. Build food stands and simple rides (Ghost House, for example) until you have enough people in your park. Otherwise, you will have blown all of your money and spent at least $20,000 of your $100,000 loan.
- Go easy on the inversions for most rides. You can have a big coaster with a lot of inversions, but don't do it for every ride. Not only does it become confusing after a while, but your guests won't like it.
- (OPENRCT2 ONLY) You can go fast, but don't go TOO fast. 200 mph should be fine, but don't do a 50 lap coaster going at 500 mph. This will probably crash the game.
- (OPENRCT2 ONLY) Turn on the cheat "Unlock all prices". That way, if you feel you're struggling with finances, you can charge people to go on your coasters. You'll thank me later.
- (OPENRCT2 ONLY) In multiplayer, don't be that guy that destroys one's park for the hell of it. If you want to get the most fun out of multiplayer, cooperate and come up with unique ideas for rides together.

The reason why it says I only have roughly 1.3 hours is because playing OpenRCT2 doesn't show that you're playing RCT2 on Steam. OpenRCT2 is its own executable file that relies on the RCT2 binaries/files.

Also, be sure to name your 3D Cinemas "The Legend of Harambe" and set the theme to "Storm Chasers". You'll thank me later.

Played this game as a kid so nostalgia may be getting the best of me. Either way this game is a phenomenal park building game with a wide range of features and options along with a brilliant isometric tile set. The only real complaints I have is the wonkey guest path finding and rowing boats getting stuck.

I enjoyed this game more than RCT3, but this may just be personal taste as RCT3 Is also a good game.

As a final note, definitely buy this over Roller Coaster tycoon world or the other recent cash-grabs, it won't disappoint you.

An excellent game, one I enjoyed much throughout my childhood and once again when I found it on Steam. Easy to figure out, yet extremely difficult to master, this game still challenges me every time I play!

I was actually very sad to see the isometric graphics go when the series progressed to version three. I much prefer this style to that 3D look, which looks like garbage to me, not to mention how cartoony it is. No, RCT2 is much more refined.

I guess my only qualm when it comes to RCT2 is that there is no progression of parks, it is just open the game and play whatever park you want. It does lose some of the challenging aspect, trying to unlock every park possible.

- you can build go-karts
- you can also build roller coasters

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.

A few tips for newer players...

1.Merry-go-round by the entrance. It is law.

2.Crank up prices of umbrellas when it rains.
They will buy no matter what.

3.Guests who like the ride will go back on if
the entrance queue is close to the exit.

4.If you put a first aid station by the exit of
thrill rides and coasters, it will prevent a lot
of vomit.
