Well I went off to the shops at Lakeside searching for this game and I swooped it up fast at (£20) as I am a fan of the series in particular! Even Theme Park DS had me off my feet and thinking about a sequel.

Thrillville: Off the Rails with its isometric like views, 2d graphics and ability to create rices then ride them yourself!

Running the parks is a straightforward as goals within the gameplay are easy enough for beginners to accomplish but another little feature I likes was the little booths you can find scatter that have mini-games.

The use of the touch screen to movie rides and different attractions for users to interact with is more impressive than Theme Park but the presentation and lack of multiplayer lowers the score.

What I would have loved in this game is if the developers put more time into the game and added more design options and multiplayer functions but with good uses of sound i cannot complain alot.

Overall, I can certainly recommend Thrillville as a game for your DS collection.

Sounds like a good game. Although i dont think i would like playing it on the DS because the screen is as small and the graphics are pretty cramped. I might try and get it for the PC or PS2/3
