4.0 out of 5 stars Fun, but not perfect, January 17, 2007
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 Platinum - PC (Video Game)
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.
