Roller Coaster Tycoon User Reviews
Awesome open-ended, limitless gameplay! The game allows you to micromanage even the most miniscule details of a theme park business; outstanding easy-to-use controls; allows tons of creativity; replay value; ability to monitor and read the minds of any guests in the park!; colorful and smooth running graphics; cheerful background music and ambient effectsThe bad:
Very dated, pixelated graphics which don't take advantage of XBOX's power at all (the color and rock-solid frame rate save the graphics)Summary:
The only thing keeping this game from a 5 is the graphics, which are really dated and pixelated. But this game isn't a "graphics" game like Splinter Cell or Panzer Dragoon - its about awesome gameplay which is so open-ended, that your imagination is your only limit! Most strategy games ported from PC to consoles have lousy, complicated controls, but not RCT. The controls are extremely easy to use, and the interfaces are easy to understand. I was able to master the controls on this game in about a half hour. You only use about four buttons on the controller, and with those four buttons, ...
Just like the pc version, but w/ loopy landscapes and corkscrewfollies added in as well as **Real PArk scenerios as well...The bad:
Those freaken vandals! After place over 45 gaurds, assigning them area's then hiring additional 15 gaurds to wonder randomly, I still get criminals in my park..So those of you who dont get these vandals please feel free to take some of mine! It is too bad that you can't build a jail in your park, or have german sheppards posted a various points..but then again..you'de have extra cost in hiring more handyman to pick up the dog poop.Summary:
Over all Im glad there isn't any cheats, as that would take away from the fun factor..Well I haven't found cheats so thats a good thing. Now as for guests who get lost in a squar based park...they deserve to be hurlled into the side of a mountain on a one way roller coaster ride..how daft can they be?
I enjoy the multiple additions to this title (loopy landscapes etc..) As when I complete rct, then i can move on and unlock other items. The corkscrew follies game is fun as well. **Time flies when your having fun, its true..this title stole many hours of my life...I feel so emtpy now lol.
