ContraI need to get out more

Management simulations have always wielded a strange hex over me. Personally, assuming the mantle of God provides unnatural and unhealthy levels of gratification. I don’t consider myself a rabid control freak; in fact I have a reluctant relationship with utter disorganisation in the real world...

ProExcellent Game, Addictive, Sound Graphically.

ContraNone as of yet.

Well i am guessing that most of you will have heard of this game by now, or indeed its Sequal, Rollercoaster Tycoon 2. Well, i have just purchased the Sequal, but i have not played it enough to warrant me to give my opinion on it, so i thought i would write about the first in the series...

Anyone who has been following my reviews for a while will have realised by now that I’m a huge fan of simulation games. Build a family, control their every move and act generally God like? I’m playing it like a shot. Make a zoo, choose the exhibits and keep them well fed and happy? Just try...

ProHours of fun

Contraaddictive

Im totally addicted to this game, although it is a few years old now and there are better versions avaliable i love it. Roller Coaster tycoon is one of those management games which you are totally hooked upon once you load it into your PC, it's one of those games where you have to sit here and...

ContraNone

A brilliant game, well thought out, good graphics, good sound effects, and lots of variety. Build the theme park of your dreams. Fill it with rollercoasters of your own design, simple or intricate, then sit back, take the money, and listen to the screams, as your guests hurtle round and round...

ProComplete control

ContraSlow at times

Rollercoaster Tycoon is a game over which you have complete control of the outcome. You can build your park up to be the best and win that game or it can be a complete disaster. The idea is that each game has its objective which can be to get a certain park rating by the guests, a certain amount...

“Added Attractions”

published 16/07/2000

ProGreat add-on for a great game

ContraNeeds Rollercoaster Tycoon to play

This add on for rollerocaster tycoon makes a great game even better by adding 30 more scenarios which are seem fairly challening yet I have found the ones attempted so far very enjoyable as well as many other attractions with which to build you theme park as well as new entertainers and more...

“Roller Coaster Of Love”

published 18/08/2001

ProMakeing Da Cash.

ContraTakes along time

Roller Tycoon is the first and only game I played of the theme park sort and as you can tell from the title I really love it. The aim of this game is not just to build roller coasters but manage a whole theme park. You have to landscape your park, build shops and toilets, hire employees and rake...

ContraRepetitive missions

Oh, all right you delegated the job to that little handyman with his nice little broom, mess cleaned up. This is just one of many features of a PC game which according to most sources has set the standard for management or god games; that being Roller Coaster Tycoon. What is this game, you may...

Provery good game hard to stop playing

Contravery hard to stop playing

Rollercoaster Tycoon is the single-handed effort from British wonder-boy Chris Sawyer. It is basically an updated version of Theme-Park, using the versatile Transport Tycoon engine. Anybody who has played Theme Park (basically everyone!) will instantly notice the similarities in Rollercoaster...

ProVery realistic, loads of choices.

ContraGuests all look the same, not any others.

Rollercoaster Tycoon is one of those games that you can never stop playing. It is up to you to build and run your own theme park, sometimes you start from scratch and sometimes you take over an existing park and make it even better and most importantly more profitable. You are in charge, it is...

“Hold Tight Riders Here We Go”

ProFuriously addictive.Build your own rollercoasters....

ContraNone

Life is full of ups and downs,this game is certainly one of the ups! The basic idea, for those that don't know, is to create and manage a theme park successfully. At the start of the game there are only a few missions open to you. Each of these missions is a different park and each has their own...

“Totally Addictive”

published 30/05/2001

Provery very addictive

Contragraphics arn't exactly the best

When Rollercoaster Tycoon came out, I just had to get it. After owning Theme Park for the SNES (and been addicted to it) I new that this would be even better and I was right. Similar to Theme Park, you have to setup your own Theme Park and your aim is to create the best to succeed. You can either...

Prorealistic, easy to play, easy to master, addictive

Contraaddictive ! can't ride the coasters yourself

I got my first copy of Rollercoaster Tycoon soon after its launch and have been addicted ever since. The game is fun and challenging -it's hard to restrain yourself by not spending all your money at the start of each level and end up havin to sit and watch the front gate, waiting for enough...
