Thrillville Off the Rails
Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
Excerpt: The rating of an E10+ and descriptors (Fantasy Violence, Mild Lyrics, and Mild Suggestive Themes) may send a lot of families running away from Thrillville Off the Rails. The WMG can certainly understand that opinion, however there are some shining moments in this home console video game.
Excerpt: The vast majority of theme park simulations allow you to build a park from scratch, doing everything in your power to appease your paying customers and perhaps being envious at the sheer fun they’re having. Thrillville: Off the Rails, like its predecessor, is very different to this.
Excerpt: What is it? A theme park management simulation packed with basic mini-games. You take control of a number of theme parks as you aim to keep your punters happy and make heaps of cash, all the while enjoying everything yourself.
Summary: Parents need to know that this amusement park simulation is more about exploring and playing in an amusement park than it is about building an amusement park. Some of the Mini party games are bloodless shooter-style games, and others involve punching, but again with no blood.
Excerpt: We'll admit, checking out the brochure beforehand, Thrillville wasn't winning any awards for ride of the century. Even with the knowledge that development was spearheaded by David Braben (creator of the free-roaming space epic Elite), we were still looking at the game as a cheap Theme Park rip off.
Excerpt: Off the Rails er en efterfølger til det originale Thrillville og som den slags efterfølgere er flest, så holder Thrillville: Off the Rails sig tæt til den formel, der lod til at virke i det første spil. Der er dog blevet plads til lidt ekstra sjov og fest i gaden i form af flere minispil.
