Good Clean Fun,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 (PC) (Video Game)
Well it's here and I've played it quite alot. RCT 3 is simply good clean fun and it has alot of what game manufacturers forget about, and that is simply PLAYABILITY.
If you have played the earlier versions then it is a massive update - but the gameplay is still remarkably similar so it's very easy to get started. If you haven't played then the tutorials are very well presented and you should be up and running in no time.
I agree that there were a few teething problems with the game when it first came out - but it's not a massive blow to have to downoad a patch as I always do this routinely with any software I buy anyway.
You can choose to play a structure career through a number of parks - some of which are very difficult and some of which are very easy - or you can choose to create your own scenario, or play in an unlimited enviroment (sandbox mode) where money and size are NOT a problem - and you can even simply sit there are design new roller coaters if you wish!
This game is good fun and doesn't involve destrying the enemy, for a change - but after a while it does get a bit repetative (but only after you've probably nearly finished the game).
You do NOT need a super computer to run this game on (unlike what some of the other reviews state) I have an Athlon 1800+ 1GB Ram and a Radeon 9600 (so hardly a cutting edge computer) and it plays erfectly - obviously I dont have ALL the graphics options on but is that a problem?
Personally I like it and I'm giving it 8/10.
