Summary: Alright, now if you've played the original Theme Park, and you are just wanting an updated version, this still isn't worth your money. The original Theme Park is far better than this. In this game you create your own Theme Park, which is pretty obvious. This style of game is normally fun, but where this one fails is mostly in the interface. The game starts you in kind of a tutorial, with building your first park, which is good.
This game is for young, and I mean YOUNG gamers only.

Summary: The graphics in this game were good, but the gameplay was down right childish. See I'm 17, and I was expecting something close to Roller Coaster Tycoon, but its nothing like that. I'll just sum it for you : if your ages 0-12 this game is for you. If your ages 13 and up and have a PC get Roller Coaster Tycoon. But if you don't have a PC just pray that Hasbro Interactive makes RCT for PS2.
Summary: This is a port from the famous Rollercoaster Tycoon - Then Sim Theme Park. My only complaint is that it locks up randomly. Therefore, you need to save often, and basically reboot the system and reload the game. A big hassle considering this is a console unit, not a computer. Hopefully they will fix this in the future. On another note, I was dissapointed with the graphics. The fun factor is there, but the graphics are not.
Summary: I was a big fan of the original "Theme Park" game, so I grabbed this one as soon as I got a PS2. It's not bad, but definitely falls short of other Amusement Park building sims, such as Rolle Coaster Tycoon and the original Theme Park. My biggest complaint is the restrictions in themes. Each location has its own theme. You don't get to choose the theme. You can't mix themes.
Summary: This game is fun in a sense that you can ride your rides, but I was disappointed by the fun factor. Compared to Rollercoaster Tycoon, it was BORING! After about a day of trying new parks and new coasters, I was bored and I hardly ever play it anymore. When designing a coaster, I could only use so much track, and I couldn't do helixes or corkscrews.
Summary: Im a 20 year old male who thought roller coaster tycoon was awsome so when i recieved ps2 this was the first game I bought. To even put the two im the same sentence is ridiculous. The ps2 version is looney and requires no actual creativity and skill. The rides are all predone for you and building a roller coaster is childs play. Although my 5, 8, and 9 year old brothers do enjoy it even though the all prefer tycoon also.
