RollerCoaster Tycoon User Reviews
- Great Gameplay
- Easy To Learn
- Gets Ya Hooked
- Low Replay Value
- Hard to Beat Levels
Roller Coaster Tycoon seems like a very addictive game if you haven't played any games like its genre, and you will be hooked as soon as you play it. Money is an issue here, and you must manage it wisely. You must build hundreds of rides, hire tons of staff and open many side attractions such as bathroom stalls, food, drinks and balloons to bring in as much cash as possible.
However, once you've beaten one level, you've beaten them all. It's the same old crap - build this, destroy that, adjust the price to this, profit of that; it really becomes more of a hassle, and unless you like building...
You can design your own roller coasters and pick the layout of your park, there are lots of parks to chose from, an all-around fun game.The bad:
If you get negative money and you can't increase your loan you pretty much can't do anything except wait for it to increase, it can be boring after you meet your goal and still have time left.Summary:
It's fun to design your own roller coasters, and easy to build a pre-made one. The controls are easy, symbols are self-explanatory. This is a great game to play while trying to reach the goal set for the park. But it can become tedious if you've completed your goal and there's still time to kill. Even with the bad things though, I would recommend this game. And no, this is not a game for "math geeks" as some may say. Just because it has a little to do with managing money doesn't make it that. It's for anyone who likes a good building game, who is creative or inventive.
This game is alot like Sim City. You create the park with rollercoasters, kiddy-rides, haunted houses, swinging ships, merry-go-rounds, and go karts. You need to design your park appropraitely or the guests will leave. You need to provide them with food, drink, bathrooms, and even cotton candy stalls. That isn't what is amazing though. It's the ability to even reate your own rollercoaster or even go kart ride. Not that you would want to, though, there are dozens of rollercoaster to choose from alone. Then you'll need to hire mechanics, janitors, and giant fuzzy animals to maintain your gue...
Pleasing game if I do say so myself, not anything TOO special, but good in its own ways
-kool stands and shops
-the way you can click on a person, pick them up, and hear there thoughts
-alot more, i just dont like typing to much like i will be doing
-grapchics werent to impressive, but nothing to be ashamed about at all
-lack of coasters, but they were still kool
-some more stuff, just cant think of it right now
Good game, i suggest getting it, and i think that you need this one loaded to play the other ones, but get this 19.99 is a great price, that is what i payed for it, and that is an awesome price
4.2 for a good well done game, not any higher because or the bad reasons i said
Basically everything about the game was great when it was first released. But I will divide it up for you..
The graphics werent terribly impressive, but they got the job done. They were clear and smooth. All you basically need. Alot of detail too.
The rides, dont start me on the rides.. Well at the time, there was basically the opportunity to build any rollercoaster or ride imaginable, and in turn, kill people by building it with hostile intent. Again, the graphics were basically the same for each ride, but still. The rides are prised, imo, the realistic range (), and can easily keep you entertained, even watching the exit.
Shops and stalls, numerous, simple facilities and the odd Drive-Thru type of thing. Bugers, Drinks Popcorn, some of the few. Quite good and essential to the game. I would have liked to seen them a bit more numerically but what you going to do?
The guests, all the same except for the shirt, money and tolleration of rides. Not much to say, I just gave you their life story.
A classic in its own right. Cheap now compared to when I bought it. And well worth the money too. I believe it is still ranked the best managment game by some PC Game magazines, after all these years.
Extreamly addictive. I have spent too many hours sitting and playing this game. Once you get into it, you wont be able to get out.
"Worth Every Penny!"
The shops and rides! There is a nice selection!
Not too big into the 3D thing!Summary:
This is a great game! You get to make your own rides, shops, themes, and more!
Just wait till you get the expansions! More rides, more themes, and more shops! This is a game for people who want to make a theme park in a game!
I have played all 3 and they are all great! I really like the third one though!
