“Build your own Theme Park”

published 16/08/2013

Some good features

Goals are not clear and graphics not great

Theme Park World for PC has been around for many years now, being released by Electronic Arts in 1999. The game was later released for Playstation. The game I have is suitable for Windows Me / NT/ 98 or 2000. It also works on XP and Vista. The game can be bought online new for under £5 including...

It's 3d!

It copies the original almost to the bone!

When I heard this game was out I thought, great! So I bought it and began to play. It was quite good for a while then I realised why it was not a superb theme park game like Roller Coaster Tycoon is. It was just the original theme park in 3d! That's right, except for the fact that you can now...

“Cheaper than the real thing”

published 20/08/2001

Great update to a classic title

Gets slow when the park is full

‘Sim’ games have become incredibly popular over the years thanks to the likes of Sim City, The Sims, Theme Hospital and the most famous of them all Theme Park. Bullfrog became very famous for their original game and after the game had appeared on various platforms it was decided that...

Variety and skill needed.

Gets repetetive once completed

I love management games. I have loads. Theme Park the original was one of my favorite games but lacked variety. I anxiously awaited the sequel. It was better than I hoped for. 4 themed worlds to explore and the graphics are fabulous. All the variety I ever wanted from the game. However, I have...

“Theme Park 2”

Graphics

Quickly becomes boring

At first I was looking foward to buying this game but gets boring very quickly. I was only able to play with for two days before getting dredfully bored. It has only four levels which is realy limiting It is very slow on the lower class type of computers and has very few rides. I think that all...

“VERY DISAPOINTING!”

published 12/07/2000

Quite good for a while

Gets very boring and repetative.

The original theme park was a classic game that kept me entertained for a while but became boring. Sadly it’s the same story for Theme Park World, it has been very overrated. To begin with, the graphics lack the sharpness you'd expect. The maximum resolution is 800x600, so you can only ever see a...

We all know about Theme Park, a great game. The best thing about it is that you could be as nice or as evil as you wanted. You could either make yours the cheapest park in the world, or laugh at the little people paying extortionate amounts to get in. Provide top quality food and snacks, or bump...

Good Graphics

Presentation

I bought this game when it first game out on the PC mainly because around 5 years ago I had the original on Amiga and found that completely additive. Unless you have completely been living in a closet for 5 years you will all know what the original game was about - basically the task is to build...

“Worse than Theme Park”

published 04/08/2000

Get to have different parks, like space

too slow and people walk funny

I bought Theme Park World because I enjoyed Theme Park so much and I thought it would be an excellent sequel to the original game - these promises slowly faded away. Theme Park World is in no way better than Theme Park. The little people in your park don't walk properly. Have you noticed that...

“Fun Park”

published 25/07/2000

Very addictive, Originality

None

Theme Park is an excellent game, the graphics are very good and the sound effects are excellent (you even get a 'being sick' sound effect as customers leave a roller coaster). The idea of this game is to build the biggest and best Theme Park, you start off with an empty park and you have to place...

If you played the original Theme Park to death, you probably won't get too much out of this. But, if like me you never had the chance to really play the original, then you'll love this game. The premise is simple; build a theme park, get people to come to it, and make lots of money. There is no...

good graphics, looks fun

complicated, seemed to get stuck at one point

I was given Theme Park as a birthday present, after many happy hours playing Theme Hospital and expected to love playing this game. I installed it easily enough on the computer, read the booklet, then began to play. However, I seemed to get stuck in the same place every time I tried to play it. I...

“Theme Park World”

It all OK

It all OK

One more game such as SimCity has appeared on light. You too build and operate, but only not cities, and park of amusements, where you are the chief engineer and general director, where the attendance of your park and satisfaction or complaint by your operatings of the visitors of this park will...

Hours of fun, pretty cheap

Poor graphics, poor instruction manual

Alton Towers and Chessington World of Adventures eat your hearts out, creating your own theme park is a whole lot cheaper, and loads more fun. Okay, well for adrenalin rush junkies it's perhaps not more fun, but it sure is enjoyable all the same. Theme Park World gives you the chance to build...

“Must Try Harder”

published 26/05/2001

Fun while it lasts

Dodgy engine

There's something up in the Bullfrog camp, since Peter Molyneux left to set up Lionhead and work on one of the most ambitious games of all time, Black & White, the team have only released sequels to games that he devised. While Dungeon Keeper 2 was a nice, solid and improved original, Theme Park...
