Summary: Fun and addicting this game rocks. It's fun to make your own theme park and rides. It is a little hard though. You can make food stands, Roller coasters, and kiddie rides. It's fun for the whole family.
Summary: This is an addictive game. It is very educational yet it doesn't feel like it. It teaches you a lot about physics. There is really no weakness to this game. Not being able to ride your own rides take about .004 points off of this games score if I were to rate this on a scale from 1-100. That would make it a 99.996 which is almost perfect! Its so much fun and so addictive.
Pros: Fun and educational. Teaches you science when you don't even realize it. You learn how to make a successful roller coaster and how to run a large business such as an Amusement Park. Addictive!
Summary: When I first saw this game, I was looking for something for my 8-year-old daughter. However, my love of amusement parks really drew me (age 43) to purchase this game. Whereas my daughter really enjoys playing, make no mistake - this is a well thought out game and appeals to the brightest minds.
Summary: I bought this program for my nine year old son and wondered why out of all the pc and Playstation games he has, he would walk in the door after school and ask if he could use the computer and he would play Roller Coaster Tycoon...everytime. It wasn't until he was having trouble making money at one of his amusement parks that I found out and have also become addicted to this game. It's just plain fun.
Summary: I would first like to start off by saying that I am a thirty-two year old and I still play video games. Yes, I know. It's quite sad. Anyway, I heard of Roller Coaster Tycoon before I got it, and decided to see how it was. Once I did purchase it, install it, and play it, I couldn't stop. This game is unbelievable. It has phenominal graphics. Wonderful sound that make you feel like you're really inside a park. You can manage your money and can advertise and hire staff.
Summary: I am a twelve year old and I am involved with a lot of sports. When I am home I want to spend my time relaxing and not being stressed out because I can't get something to work. This game is nothing like that. It has a easy downloading procedore. Also once I actually got in to the program with a easy click. I wa building roller coasters like I was a pro. The thing I think people we glance over this product. Roller Coaster Tycoon.
Summary: All I can say about this game is wow. I've been interested in roller coasters since I was five. Then, I saw this game in a book order at school and knew I had to have it. I got the game and was addicted right away. I couldn't stop playing it. I would get home from school at 2:00 and wouldn't stop playing 'till 10:00. My parents often had to shut the computer off. Other games became boring after one or two weeks. I still can't stop playing this game.
Summary: What do I have to say. Hmmm...Well first, my sister, who is 22, when she saw this game, she thougt it was pretty stupid. Then I asked her "What should I name the rides?" From that point to about 5 hours later she said that this was one of the most funnest games she has ever played, and she HATES video games! I know that that is her opinion, but I would have to go with it too.
Summary: This is one of the best buys that I've made all year. (Yes, I know it's March.) I played it for hours and hours. Sleep became secondary. In fact, the only reason I'm not playing now is because my game freezes after about 2 hours of playing. I don't know if my laptop is the problem or the disk. I'm still trying to figure it out. Other than that, the game is simply amazing. You control everything. You handle ride speeds, research and development, and garbage can placement.
Summary: I got this little guy the day it came out in the summer. I don't know if its been laziness that kept me from writing a review, or just the fact that everybody already knows this game rules. First the bad stuff, the graphics kinda... well they aren't on par with current games, but its not like its gonna turn you off from this game, if it does than youv'e got some problems. This game is also EXTREMELY addictive.
