About This Game

NoLimits 2 is the ultimate roller coaster simulation that lets you experience authentic roller coaster thrills. Climb into the world's most famous roller coasters and experience the excitement in real time. Or design a new roller coaster that is engineered to your specifications.

Use a full-featured roller coaster editor with a CAD-style wire-frame display to build a custom coaster. Drag and drop track, supporting structures, and other objects. Use slider bars to change the perspective of the elements being designed, and to zoom in and out. Your only constraints are the laws of physics and your imagination.

After you have designed and constructed your roller coaster, NoLimits 2 serves up a real-time roller coaster experience, from the time the train chugs its way up the first slope, to the time it stops to a stop on the exit platform. The simulation includes the sounds of the wind rushing by, and the metal-on-metal sounds that are integral to enjoying a coaster ride. It's easy to choose any seat on any car in the coaster train. Use the computer's mouse to change the line of sight and angle of vision.

NoLimits 2 is the world's most comprehensive roller coaster simulation, with results so realistic that professional designers like John Wardley use NoLimits 2 to create and test designs for physical roller coasters. Roller coaster manufacturers including Vekoma Rides Manufacturing B.V., The Gravity Group, Inc., Great Coasters International, Inc., Premier, Inc., Maurer Söhne GmbH, Intamin A.G. and others have used NoLimits for purposes including layout, design and integration, visualization and marketing.

NoLimits Roller Coaster Simulation 2 is the ultimate roller coaster simulation, hands down. Don't believe us? Just ask the pros.

This game is quite fun and detailed when it comes to roller coasters. The track designer is very intricate meaning the limits are endless, hence the title. You can do anything you want with rides and stuff and you can even import custom scenery! It's a great game if your willing to pay the price tag it gives. Fun at first, sometimes gets repetitive and you need A LOT OF PATIENCE. For a beginner it can take AGES to build a good looking rollercoaster, trust me!

Before you read this review, keep in mind that this is a design software, NOT A GAME.
But it's a really good design software.

PROS
-Intuitive UI
-Immediately gratifying creation engine
-Fairly good optimization
-Very realistic physics and visuals
-Excellent workshop support
-VR support
-Fairly easy to mod/add custom objects
-SCRIPTING ENGINE IS BUILT IN

CONS
-The built in video recorder is terrible, and if you want the good one, you have to pay for the delux version of No Limits 2 on the official website
-The price tag may turn off some people who would normally enjoy this

Overall:
9/10
Well designed and realistic simulation engine. Price point is a little high for most but I bought it for $30 and regret nothing.

Amazing game, for those wanting to take roller coaster design to the next level. It can be tricky to get used to at first, as most aren't used to the freedom offered by NoLimits. As the name implies, there are (almost) no limits to how you design your ride.

I love this simulator, I can create the coasters how I want and what I want. Can also ride others creations some of which are amazing. The learning curve is very high as this is on the level of a CAD program and the complexity is amazing. I believe VR support is available. I just wish there were more included tools for scenery and building design. Thou they can be added by mods and third parties.

After playing the demo for about 11 hours i really enjoyed it only there where a limit of coaster to use so i bought the full version. Never regret it its a really good coaster simulation game. When you start learning the game it sometimes can be really hard to understand but after about a few good hours you get the hang of it and can build descent coasters.

Pros:
Textures & Sounds
making your perfect and smooth coaster
building options
rollercoaster option to create

Cons:
for new players it can be hard to figure out how to play the game but after watching some YT video's it gets really easy

A really addicting game and i recommend to every that love to ride/build coasters and this is the game for your best experience if you love to do this.

Pros -
*Great rides that you can ride again and again to relieve when you rode them.

Cons -
*Hard to make rollercoasters
*Doesn't give you enough information
*No tutorial (as in a tutorial level) to help you get through making your first Rollercoaster
*No way of setting the ride to go up a chain-pull hill
*No way of changing the camera so you can make the rollercoaster.

I am really impresssed with the game. I still have a few things to learn, like how to make a launch, but it is still my favorite game of all time. The rollercoaster editor is VERY easy to use, but it just takes a little time. So, do not sit down, play it for 5 minutes, and say, "The roller coaster editor is too hard for me." It takes time to learn.

Pros: 1. Great graphics
2. Realistic roller coasters
3. Easy coaster editor
4. Easy custom scenery importing
Cons: NONE!

Overall, I recommend playing this game. This game just blew my mind.

I started using computers for entertainment and production back with Dos 5.0 and Windows 3.0. To this date I have never seen anything before that compares with NoLimits 2. I was speechless when I auditioned the Free Demo. The Demo is the most amazing software I have ever seen especially for FREE but the full version for 40 dollars is worth every penny to say the least ! I hate to admit it, but NoLimits 2 is worth much more than the 40 dollar asking price. I love Train Simulator but NoLimits 2 is a completely new level of gaming experience. No matter what I say you really have to see this to appreciate it !
