Drowning Pandas - High Brow Entertainment

AdvantagesAddictive beyond doubt - Total freedom - Panda drowning

DisadvantagesI need to get out more

"...why would a game like Rollercoaster Tycoon appeal then? Allow me to explain. The premise of Rollercoaster Tycoon is unquestionably simple: create, manage and maintain a fully operational Theme Park. For many, this may sound marginally less interesting than the autobiography of Toby Anstis, but I assure you it yields substantial rewards. Created by Brit Chris Sawyer, the series has forged an impressive and deserved identity in the gaming industry. ..." Read review

Do you fancy owning your very own Theme park

AdvantagesVery addictive, great game

DisadvantagesThose silly little handymen that just wont do their jobs properly

"...to own a copy of Rollercoaster Tycoon. A fellow member (OFFY) saw my plea and seeing as she had an unwanted copy, she decided to give it to me free of charge. The game is basically, an upgrade of Theme Park and for those of you who have yet to experience the pleasures of this wonderful game, here is a brief run down of what it is. * THE IDEA * Rollercoaster Tycoon, is basically a simulator game for anyone who has always dreamed of owning ..."

"...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. Rollercoaster Tycoon, by Chris Sawyer, is basically set in a theme park, where you are given objectives to complete in a certain amount of time. it can be where you have to have 1,500 people in your park, with a park rating of ..."

AdvantagesGives you a free reign in ride design, colour coordinating of rides / shops...etc

DisadvantagesCan be very frustrating building rides, irritating music

"...games, one of which was Rollercoaster Tycoon, a game I’ve been hankering after ever since I first saw it a few months ago. WHAT IS IT? Rollercoaster Tycoon (or RCT as it will henceforth be known) is, as the name suggests, a theme park type of game, the object of which is to play through various scenarios, all of which have set objectives and timescales, building up theme parks in different locations and terrains and generally making them into ..."

Roller Coaster Of Love

AdvantagesMakeing Da Cash.

DisadvantagesTakes 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 in the cash. ----Starting The Game---- This game is based on completing different scenarios; in each different scenario there are a number of different ..."

Rollercoaster Tycoon

AdvantagesBuild and run your own theme park

DisadvantagesVery addictive

"...now it is possible with Rollercoaster Tycoon. Now three years old and the newer version now out this was a great format for a theme park game. Designed by Chris Sawyer and produced by Micro prose and Hasbro Interactive the game became an instant hit with “tycoon’s” upon its release. This very time consuming game offers 30 levels which offer different landscapes and sizes of land for you to build your theme park on. As I have said in the previous ..." Read review

Life is a rollercoaster youve just got to ride it

AdvantagesHours of fun

ITS A ROLLERCOASTER OF A GAME

Advantages-

Disadvantages-

"Roller coaster Tycoon is probably the most successful theme park game to be brought out this side of the Atlantic. It's more classy and with better graphics than Theme park and isn't as annoying as the afore mentioned's predecessor, Theme Park World. I got my copy on a special offer from QXL.com for £3 and let me tell you I am glad I did. *~What is it all about?~* RT is basically what it says on the tin. You own a theme park. You have money. ..."

Ride the rollercoaster tycoon

AdvantagesGood gameplay

DisadvantagesAnnoying sounds

"Your objective is to establish a well run and popular theme park. In a given amount of time you have to attract a large number of visitors to earn money. Using this money you can build more roller coasters to try to attract more visitors, advertise your park, build shops to get more money out of the visitors already in your park, and of course hire maintenance staff. At the start there are 5 different parks to choose from, each one different and ..." Read review

"ROLLERCOASTER TYCOON -------------------- Well I've finally dragged myself off this game long enough to write a review of it! It seems like ever few weeks there is a new 'Tycoon' game available, which says quite a lot about this genre of games, its obviously very popular. One of the most popular of these tycoon games is Rollercoaster Tycoon, and its sequel RCT2, so I thought it was about time i gave my verdict on the original. Originally ..." Read review

I have, and so have many other people, so when roller coaster tycoon, a game from Chris Sawyer, Microprose and infrogrames was released, it was taken very well indeed.

Rollercoaster tycoon what a game.

AdvantagesAddictive, great fun, upgades available

Disadvantagesnone

"...much more enjoyable. In summary, Rollercoaster Tycoon is the sort of game anyone even mildly interested in strategy games would enjoy. Fun enough to keep you interested and with an interface intuitive enough to keep gameplay easy, this game is easy to pick up and very addictive. My partner who hardly ever plays games at all couldn’t help watching over my shoulder while I built log flumes and bumper car rides. There are so many games that are ..." Read review
