If you have played the new RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 then you will find that ideas have been taken from this game.
This game was released in 1999 and in my opinion I thought the graphics were fantastic, others don't seem to agree. This game has 3D-graphics and they are truly good, 3D acceleration had only just really been brought in to graphics!!! I disagree with other reviewers and I think the gameplay is fast, I only have a 500 MHZ processor and in todays standards thats terrible but back then it was super-fast!!! Minumum processor speed for this game is only 200 MHZ do I don't know how it is slow on anybodys computer!
This game was rivals with the original RollerCoaster Tycoon which was released that same year, in graphics this game beat it but not in all of the gameplay. Gameplay as I have said is fast but you only get 4 parks, apposed to 20 or so. But each park in this game is unique and I think thats really cool. There is:
Halloween World - My favourite!!!
The first parks are unlocked for you, Lost Kingdom and Halloween World, but you have to get 3 keys to unlock Wonderland and 5 for Space Zone (Please Note: 3 golden tickets=1 key).
You can ride the rides!! That is the idea Frontier took when making RTC3!!! In ways the graphics are similar too.
I don't really like the Sold-out-sales stock because I think the cover is rubbish and every time you want to play the game the installer pops-up even when it is installed!
1 year later in 2000 Theme Park Inc was released, the sequel to Theme Park World and the last in designer series of Bullfrog's games and their last game ever for PC. Sadly EA shut Bullfrog down mid-time 2004! This is why you MUST buy this game.
