Product Description Review

Ever fancied being the owner of an Alton Towers or Disney World from the comfort of your own home? Well here's your chance thanks to those wonderful people at BullFrog software and the PlayStation 2.

Based on the PC title of the same name, the aim of the game is to build your dream park and keep it running, dealing with the day-to-day trials and tribulations of keeping the rides working and the punters happy. Strategy is all important here--place your burger stand too close to a rollercoaster entrance and the riders will stagger off the attraction and become "unwell" all over the floor. Too much salt on your chips and not enough fizzy pop results in parched visitors who vote with their feet and don't come back--this is not a game for those who like action fast and furious and pick up a game for a quick five minutes now and again.

The user interface is a joy to use, making Theme Park World easy to play; in tutorial mode an interesting park advisor pops up to give tips on what needs to happen, where and when. But it's in the rollercoaster design phase that things get interesting. Lay out the track for your ride in full 3D, then alter it in differing ways to produce a killer ride--corners can be banked, straights raised and lowered and sections can be added and removed to create the kind of white knuckle ride Walt and Mickey would be proud of, then, using the game's first-person mode check it out from the front seat for that impression of being there.

Successful park management results in golden tickets being awarded. Collect enough tickets and the player can progress to bigger and more challenging themed parks, each of which presents its own unique challenge.

The long-term attraction of this game is doubtful, and only significant playing will reveal whether the whole procedure will become a little samey, but for a break from the traditional arcade-style fare usually associated with the consoles, Theme Park World holds bags of promise and is a worthwhile investment for the more thoughtful PS2 owner.

5.0 out of 5 stars /\/\y \/ery \/\/orthwhile buy 19 Dec 2000
I recently bought this game. I was not expecting what I got. I have been hooked on it since I got it. There is so much variety. I started thinking my park was amazing. Since then I have drastically improved everything, looking in retrospect at my old park in disgust. While being tied up in the game I did not notice my improvements. This is the best game I have bought for the P2 (beating Tekken, SSX, Timesplitters and RRV). There is one problem - I've spent (not wasted) all my time on it - time well spent, though I haven't had time for much else. Take my advice - BUY IT NOW

5.0 out of 5 stars TOP GAME 29 Aug 2003
By A Customer
Theme park world is well worth the time,patience and money.
At the beginning you start off with the availability of only one theme park. Then you must build the park whatever way you want, starting from a customer toilet to high speed upside down rollercoasters, the supplies of rides are unlimited but you only have a certain amount of money. (Theres a little scottish helper in the corner of the screen who will start you off but sometimes he gets a bit annoying)There are many types of items to fill your park with including arcades,toilets,rollercoasters,restaurants,track rides and you can hire people to keep the park clean and repair any broken down rides. Once you have completed your park you can then open it to the public and thats when the real fun begins. From the on you can ride your own rollercoasters,have a go on your own games and explore and change things if any problems occur in your theme park. Between the creating and opening your park the little helper in the corner will award you golden tickets and once you've collected enough you will be able too enter other theme parks. All the theme parks creating and development is up to you; you even decide how much the food costs but you must keep your park clean and in a good state. AND OF COURSE THE CRUCIAL THING IS TO KEEP YOUR CUSTOMERS HAPPY.
I hope you enjoy playing it because I have and will continue too!

5.0 out of 5 stars A welcome break from the old routine 10 May 2001
By A Customer
All i've been doing for the last 6 months, is driving, shooting and punching. For a break, I decided to rent Theme Park to see what it was like. Now i own the game, and have spent entire days, sat with friends arguing over how much to charge for the fries, who to employ or what ride to build to generate the most money. Even my friend who has the old PC version admits that this is a lot more enjoyable and has more depth than the original. If you have the time and want to make the effort, give this a shot. If you have no patience and just want a quick adrenaline fix, look elsewhere.

3.0 out of 5 stars Alright 20 Jun 2008
By xenofan VINE VOICE
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I brought this game having played (and enjoyed) the original Theme Park. The previous version kept me occupied for hours. This one, however, I'm not so sure about...

The graphics are much improved from the original Theme Park (they're all bright and in 3D and look very pretty) and as its title suggests, there are multiple themed "worlds" in which to build your park. I'm still on the first world, but I'm informed there are Space, Halloween and Fantasy themes later on in the game.

My first impressions of this game were that it's very clunky. Most annoyingly, there doesn't seem to be any sort of cursor, so if you want to highlight a shop or ride or whatever, you just have to sort of scroll the sceen around a bit until it lights up. Easy with larger items, but extremely tedius for very small items.

As other reviews have commented-the advisor is annoying.

I don't like how once you've set a ride, or a shop, or a feature down, you can't relocate it. Instead you have to delete and then reselect from the item list and set a new one. Annoying because then you have to go through sorting all the settings you had-and if you forgot to check how much you were selling those burgers for before you had to remove the burger bar, then tough. Theme Park world allows you to set certain parameters (sale price for items sold in shops, ride speed and capacity, etc). This is often more a nuisance than a good thing. If I want to go and increase the price of my ice creams, I have to go to every ice cream stall in turn and adjust prices one at a time.

The camcorder view is awful. Really-I exited it after less than a minute. I didn't enjoy riding my roller coaster. (Roller coasters are, as others have commented, very annoying to make).
