Awesome Sequel to best Simulation Game ever,
This review is from: Rollercoaster Tycoon 2: Triple Thrill Pack - PC (Video Game)
No doubt about it, RollerCoaster Tycoon is the best simulation game ever! Atari hits a homerun with this awesome sequel. For those of you who have never played the original, I'll describe it briefly.
You can build your own park, construct rides, food areas, and souvenir stalls. You build the paths, can make custom or predesigned rides and make scenery. Every park is a scenario, where your goal is to meet a certain objective. One example of an objective would be "Have 1000 people in your park by year 3 with a park rating of 600"
RollerCoaster Tycoon gives you all types of data in finances, pinpointing where you may be losing money. Also, you can start marketing campaigns to get more guests. It has a convenient, easy to use interface
IMPROVEMENTS OVER THE ORIGINAL ROLLERCOASTER TYCOON
1. Guests look at scenery and rides and have more detailed thoughts
2. Now if you construct a pre-designed ride, the game clears trees for you( this was a big nuisance in the original)
3. WAY more rides! (And I mean a ton more)
4. Cool Sixflags Parks
5. A lot of different stalls (for example, now there is a lemonade stall)
6. Sorting of parks by difficulty level
One thing that hasn't improved over the previous version is the graphics. They are exactly the same. But since the graphics in the original RollerCoaster Tycoon were good to start with, this isn't a problem.
This is way better than RollerCoaster Tycoon 3(which frankly sucks). Get this instead.

You don't need to buy the first one. However, playing this game on vista will require you to do a bit of googling. Nothing too complicated, though. Couple of tweaks and you'll be playing.
