This game took up many hours of my youth and I would still recommend it.
Managing and expanding your theme part is simple yet engaging. Building your own rollercoaster lets you get creative. For the price, there's still plenty of hours that can be had building up a park from scratch.
Very user friendly, yet surprisingly challenging. A definite purchase!
I have enjoyed the RollerCoaster Tycoon series since a young age. It gives a more realistic gameplay than other theme park games on the market but is still a great deal of fun to play. I admit the 2nd is not as good as the first in my opinion but I also haven't had as much chance to play the 2nd so maybe my opinion is incomplete. Still a great game.
It may be on the old side now but its still the best Rollercoaster Tycoon game there is, its fun and addictive. I had to order another copy from Amazon as i lost my old copy, very good service delivery wise and at a good price!
My 9 year old bought this with his own money and absolutely loves it. He has even designed roller coasters so scary that no one dares go on them. He has been teaching his 5 year old sister to design her own theme park, and she loves it too.
The only complaint my son has, is very minor. He has seen a friend make the roller coasters go underground but the tutorial doesn't cover it, so he can't make that work.
It works perfectly on our old windows XP computer, we haven't tried it on anything else. A highly recommended game.
