RCT 3, More tech less fun..........,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 Platinum - PC (CD-ROM)
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.
