5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Game, February 10, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rollercoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum [Download] (Software Download)
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!

Thank you for this amazing review! I was really wondering if all expansions were installed on the disc at the same time.
