Have You Ridden The Temple of Gloom

AdvantagesHours of fun, pretty cheap

DisadvantagesPoor graphics, poor instruction manual

"...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 your own amusement park in four different themed lands. Entry to the various lands is gained with a certain number of golden keys, one of which you are given to start you off. One key allows you access to the Magic ..." Read review

Build your own Theme Park

AdvantagesSome good features

DisadvantagesGoals 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 delivery. I have had this game for many years but only recently got it out to play, I had been playing quite a bit of Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 and decided ..." Read review

Your Own Personal Alton Towers

Advantagesgood graphics, looks fun

Disadvantagescomplicated, 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 could build and position the first ride, then I seemed to grind to a halt and I wasn't sure what to do next. I consider myself to be quite computer ..." Read review

Let your imagination run free

AdvantagesEnjoyable game, fantastic graphics, lots of varying factors

DisadvantagesCan get tedious, been done before (many a time)

"...have control over how a theme park is built and designed, to see what it would be like to make a mockery of your career without it affecting your real-life personal financial income, or just to mess about, scaring the pants off hundreds of people and having to clean up the inevitable visible consequence? I have. And after enjoying the thrills that the original Theme Park brought so many of us some 6 or 7 years ago, I was eager to try my wits against ..." Read review

Scream if You Wanna Go FASTER

AdvantagesGood fun - keeps you occupied for hours, days and weeks

DisadvantagesHard to do anything else! Oh, and the end is a bit disappointing.

"...the shows. Imagine your favourite theme park. Imagine you were the boss of that theme park. Sounds pretty good, doesn’t it? Well, you are pretty much imagining what it is like to play Theme Park World. I am not going to go into all the details of when, where and how the idea came up but it is here and it is fab! In the beginning (no, this is not an excerpt from the bible but it could well be the TPW bible!) there are four parks. You can ..." Read review

Must Try Harder

AdvantagesFun while it lasts

DisadvantagesDodgy engine

"...nice, solid and improved original, Theme Park World was a bit of a let down, it didn’t have the addictive pull of the original game so Bullfrog are at it again with Theme Park Inc. The clue is in the title. This game is far more business orientated than TPW and the original come to that. You now don’t just build a park, improve it, make money and get bored. You start off as assistant manager and must climb to the top to take over as ..." Read review

How irritating is this game

Advantagesthe game was good for young players

Disadvantagesthe graphics are a bit poor, it was quite hard for me to keep out of the debt.

"...have recently bought the game Theme Park world for the PC, by E A. I heard that the other games like this are quite good, so I thought I would give this game ago. As you do. FEATURES OF THE GAME · Build - plan and place rides, shops, side-shows and other features to how you want them · Visit –Check the park out in realistic 1st person mode · Ride –Experience your fantastic creations in person · Employ -Front line staff, and you ..."

Cheaper than the real thing

AdvantagesGreat update to a classic title

DisadvantagesGets slow when the park is full

"...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 an update was well overdue. So what did we get? Theme Park World, that’s what. All the principles from the original game are there, you build a park, employ staff, research rides etc but many elements of the original have been updated. ..."

Walk around your creation

AdvantagesGood graphics, quite addictive and you can walk round the park!

DisadvantagesThe adviser can get annoying!

"...If so, you will love Theme Park Inc. This is one of the variants in the long-standing popular computer game, Theme Park. You have been given the job of a manager at a theme park, and have certain targets to meet. If you manage this, you expand into more of the park. I previously had the original CD version of Theme Park. But when it didn’t work on my new computer I decided to “treat” myself to the latest offering. The Inc. version looked excellent, ..."

Dont I know you from somewhere

AdvantagesGood Graphics

DisadvantagesPresentation

"...task is to build a theme park (hence the name) and try to make it as profitable as possible. This is the second in that seris of games and the graphics have now become 3D. The game itself can be frustrating at times especially with that annoying advisor in the corner shouting orders at you every five minutes - good job you can turn him off. My personal opinion on this game is that it is good but dont think it is as good as the original theme ..." Read review

3D Theme Park

AdvantagesFantastic 3D graphics

DisadvantagesNone

"Theme Park World is the 3D sequel to the popular classic, Theme Park. The idea of the game is to maneage your very own theme park by building rides, shops and various other attractions to keep the visitors (little people) as happy as possible. Theme Park World has very good graphics, especially compared to the first version, and the rides and shops look excellent in 3D. You link all your rides and attractions up by building paths and special walkways ..." Read review

SO addictive

AdvantagesFun fun fun!

Disadvantagesmight be slow running if you have a slow comp

"If you love Theme Parks, then I think it's fair to say you will love this game. Well, riding the rides bit anyway! THE AIM... The aim of the game is build a theme park, believe it or not, and to do this you have to manage your finances, hire and fire staff, build rides, shops, sideshows and all the time research new rides that will pull the crowds in. STARTING OUT... At the start, you have $50,000 and a choice of 4 theme parks. Well, actually ..." Read review

Beware, this is erratic with low memory

AdvantagesHighly addictive, pointless fun

DisadvantagesDoesn't like being run on a Mac (as far as I can tell)

"...playstation when it was just Theme Park. I was looking after her two kids and filled the time with a 'quick' couple of hours on this game. I found myself instantly hooked: "yes kids, you can stick metal objects in the plug socket, dangle each other out the windows by the legs" - don't worry, Mel, not really! But yes, very engaging. So I spent a couple of years resenting its lack of availability for Apple Maccers. For those of you that need to know ..." Read review

Could have been so much better...

AdvantagesLoads of things to do, draws you in and keeps you involved

DisadvantagesNo way to actually "win" the game, gets a bit repetetive after a while

"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 way of "winning" the game as such, which is a bit of a downer; in, for example, Theme Hospital, you had specific win criteria for each level, like making ..." Read review
