Same Game, new look!
on 18 December 2005
It has to be said that the 3D graphics in this game are spectacular. So good in fact that you will frequently find yourself nonchalantly zooming around the park just to view your self confessed masterpiece from every conceivable angle; and very satisfying it is too!
3D graphics aside the gameplay has not changed much since it's original conception. The basic idea being to build theme parks that bring in the cash. You can choose to make good existing parks in one of the many bundled scenarios or simply indulge yourself and build the next Disneyland.
Rollercoaster tycoon in my opinion is a must have for fans of Sim City and other god style simulations. If you are new to this sim I would suggest getting your hands on Rollercoaster tycoon 2 which is simpler to control and will allow you to familiarise yourself with the core gamplay. If you jump straight into this version the 3D colud possibly hamper the learning curve and prevent you enjoying the core of this game.
One last tip, if you do buy any game in the RCT series be prepared for lost sleep and microwave meals. Time will become your enemy!
