    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!

    4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but not perfect January 17, 2007
    Platform for Display:PC
    Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
    I loved Rollercoaster Tycoon, and RCT2. I was skeptical about the change to 3D and thought the "Ride Your Ride" tool was pretty lame. However, this game does not disapoint. There are a TON of new features added, the graphics are very appealing, and the Platinum Edition is very worthwhile. I only have two complaints with this game. First of all, the interface is clunky. Once you get used to it, it's not bad, but it does not flow as smoothly or intuatively as the previous RCT games. Second, the scenarios are too easy. Getting Tycoon on most of the levels is barely challenging and, after doing about half the scenarios, I find that the biggest challenge is having the patience to wait for enough money to build rollercoasters. They added time compression though, so you don't have to wait as long as you did in the older games. The "Ride the Rides" feature turned out to be very fun, it used to be satisfying to create a ride with Excitement of 8 or higher. It is so much more satisfying to see what the guests see on that ride. Overall, a worthwhile game, but not perfect.
