  • Summary: People wanting to buy this port to the xbox, heed my warning, the control scheme is one of the hardest in any game that I have ever played. Managing your park can be difficult because it might take you a long time if you're a beginner. Even an experienced vet will have a hard time. Besides the control scheme gameplay is exactly like the pc.

  • Excerpt: The classic has come to the Xbox for a new lease of life. One good thing that I thought has come out of it is the fact that the graphics have improved a lot since the original pc version and there have been new rides and shops put into so that it's not exactly the same as the original.
  • Pros: Cheap and easy to pick up and play
  • Cons: Same as the pc version not many changes

  • Excerpt: About 4 years ago, a friend showed me a game on his PC which was quite unlike any game I'd played before. I once played it non-stop for 10 hours such is it's addictiveness. A couple of years ago I bought an X Box and after a while decided there was a gap in the market for strategy games. Then one day I saw that ROLLERCOASTER TYCOON was due for release and so I eagerly bought it. What is it? """"""""""""""" The game basically puts you in charge of a field.
  • Pros: Very addictive  Good conversion from PC title
  • Cons: Quite fiddly controls

  • Excerpt: My second simulation game on the X-Box although after playing The Sims this one is not quite up to standard. The object of this game is to build a theme park. For the first level you are given an empty and generously flat park. You then need to build rides to encourage people to come to your park. Sounds simple? Well, it is really.
  • Pros: cheap and easy to play
  • Cons: can get boring

Not exactly rock'n'roll

  • Summary: I have owned this type of genre on the PSone and was expecting a lot better given the better controller on the xbox. The control system is relatively good with the use of the thumbsticks taking place of a mouse, but it is still not as good as the mouse mainly due to the speed of the movement.
