Summary: I remembered playing this game when I was younger on my Playstation. This game is pretty much a copy of that game and has the same entertainment value. As far as park building games go I have found that this is one of the better ones for those who want to just create the park and worry too much about all the added stuff. This game is a simple pick and place sort of game where the longer you play the more rides and such will unlocked for you to put in your park.
Summary: The problem is that I played this game on Sega for approximately 3904 hours. In fact, I once owed $90 at the Video store because I was renting it. That being said, the DS game does not quite live up to the original, the problem for me is the graphics/controls. I don't think they have optimized the controls in their attempt to use the touch screen as part of it is not intuitive.
Summary: This is a relatively basic port of the original PC game. If you played that version, you've played this one. The same rides, the same stores, the same game play elements. There are a few new rides or stores, but they're basically just new graphics as opposed to game play changing additions. The move to the DS didn't treat Theme Park well, control is limited to the options available (stylus and a few buttons), and screen real estate is at a premium.
Summary: I have the game for a day ( so if I wrong about something please let me know)and so far I noticed 10 cons: 1. You can only save one game! That means if another person wants to play it would have to delete your park or play in your park . If you want to start a new park you have to delete the old one. 2.You can't turn around your ride, which means the rides can only face forward and you only will see the from one side.
