    4.0 out of 5 stars RCT3 - finally complete! February 1, 2007
    Platform for Display:PC
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    Roller Coaster Tycoon has been one of the most successful of the 'tycoon' games on the market today, and it's easy to see why. RCT is probably, down and away, one of the most fun and addictive of all the tycoon games. This version of RCT3 now has all the expansions included with the main game: "Roller Coaster Tycoon 3," "RCT3: Soaked!", and "RCT3: Wild!".

    I've played all three - RCT1, RCT2, and now RCT3. I enjoy all of the franchise. I've always wondered what it would be like to BE Walt Disney - even if it's just in a game. And Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 Platinum does not disappoint.

    Although the interface isn't quite as good as is on Roller Coaster Tycoon 2, it's still usable once you get over the rather kiddiefied look. It's the three dimensional look that gives this game a fresh slant to earlier versions. And the new coaster cam adds a bit of a thrill, although I myself only found myself using it infrequently at best.

    RCT3 itself adds the coaster cam and three dimensional look and feel. RCT3: Soaked adds water park features, and RCT3: Wild adds a bit of Zoo Tycoon to RCT3. The customers look like "The Sims," and there's now obvious older and younger customers, and you must strike a balance of pleasing both.

    I enjoyed my adventures with RCT3 very much. It can be very addictive. Just a little tweak can increase your park's success - or cause your failure. The scenarios are numerous, and the new three challenge in one scenario feature was a nice touch, even though I thought that some of them were a little too easy to reach the top.

    The scenarios range from the tutorials (highly useful, even if you've played other Tycoon games), beginners scenarios, advanced scenarios and expert scenarios as well as a couple "Real" parks.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Great collection of games, a lot of fun! November 24, 2010
    Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
    I read a lot of reviews about this game not running properly on windows 7 so before I paid for it and downloaded it I downloaded the demo from the developer website to try it out. The demo worked fine so I purchased and installed the game and it works perfectly. The game comes with the original roller coaster tycoon 3 along with 2 expansion packs - soaked and wild. This means a lot of scenarios and a lot more rides to choose from than if you were just playing the original version. I haven't played too much with the wild expansion (which basically lets you incorporate a zoo into your park) but I have played with the soaked expansion and it is a lot of fun. Overall this game is great and I recommend it to anyone who likes to play simulation games. If you are unsure about whether the game will work on your system, I suggest doing what I did and trying the demo before purchasing!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Game February 10, 2011
    By J. Reis
    Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
    I decided to write this review to clarify a few things that people may largely misunderstand.

    First thing that I feel people need to know is that the online download for this game is a wonderful option. First off you can download it instantly and for game downloads Amazon says the following: "You can install [a game] an unlimited number of times for personal use, however additional copies of the game for friends or family must be purchased separately." So there is no real reason to own the disks. Your game remains in your amazon account forever and you can access it from any computer you want. Also the two expansion packs are downloaded instantly and pre-incorporated into the game so that saves some headaches if you aren't very good with computers.

    Secondly, I have a windows 7 computer and it works wonderfully on my machine, although I know many people have been having problems running it on a similar system. But as I decided even if it wouldn't work on my computer I could still install it on other computers I use for free and play it on them so I figured I'd be fine.

    Now about the game: I used to own Roller Coaster Tycoon Two and played it all the time. I am a college student and purchased this game because I was getting sick of all the first person shooter games played on campus. This game is a wonderful substitute and the graphics are ahead of it's time (that being 2005). You can pan around the screen very easily and change your angle at anytime. You can zoom in so close to people that they take up the whole screen and the graphics remain intact. The Soaked expansion pack is so fun, you can build pools at different levels and connect them with pool-walks and you have tons of options for water slides and the sort.

    Ultimately this is an amazing game that is well worth the money and I feel that almost any age can understand it and enjoy it with little ease!

    3.0 out of 5 stars RCT 3, More tech less fun.......... August 16, 2010
    Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
    Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
    I have been a Tycoon fan for years, i have played 1, 2 and 3 in the series.
    My review of this game is pretty bold, but i feel that it should be said, for people interested in purchasing this one.
    I found that this game had a lot of the bells and whistles as the others, there are many new features that make the game enjoyable.
    You can build and ride your own creations, that is a plus i must say, you can load and enjoy your own music tracks on the rides as well.
    There are many new coasters and thrill rides ext, also many new water rides and themes to make your park look like the real thing.
    Shops and stalls have been updated as well and play a key role in your over all park value as they always have.
    Cons= I found that even though the user interface on this one is simplified, it still is hair pulling in parts if you don't know exactly what to do.
    Example,it can be a pickle just to get your peeps to a pool area via a walk way, the mix master display (fireworks), is a cool new option if you can figure out how to make it work!
    Over all the game runs pretty well the same as others, just has more detailed options that you can choose from.
    I strongly DO NOT recommend this game to anyone that has never played any of the previous series's, you indeed will be lost in many areas.
    I DO recommend that you play RCT 2, it has more of a solid basic layout and you want be confused by many of the detailed options that this one offers.
    In closing for the die hard RCT fans that are already aged on the principle of the game it is worth checking out, if this is your first time playing RCT i would recommend you start out with one of the earlier ones.
    But then again there are certain things in this one that you just have to figure out on your own.
    This is my review, but it's your dime so you should be the judge.

    Happy Gaming!
