Well...I had this version of Roller Coaster Tycoon for my old Windows and when I got my new puter with Windows XP a couple of years ago...much to my chagrin, my Roller Coaster Tycoon did not transfer.
I had gotten this for my son to play, and he is now grown and gone. We tried other versions of Roller Coaster Tycoon...but really none were as fun as the original one.
Once he left...I had empty nest syndrome pretty badly. I looked in the stores for the original version of RCT to see if they had made it compatible with Windows XP and could not find it. But I was told it might be available online...and I was delighted when I found it on Amazon.
I ordered it and have enjoyed it immensely. I love Evergreen Gardens and I play it through and accumulate alot of money on it, then flatten it and make a Serenity Garden where I can make banners with Scriptures and everything. I make just a few rides that I really enjoy watching the workings of and then open my Serenity Park for a low fare and watch the little kids come and play in my low key Amusement Park.
I set all the rides on maintain every 10 minutes and I have plenty of maintenance men, so even the coasters rarely crash. I am a very non violent person and I don't like that feature in the scenario, so I pretty much edit it out in the way I run my parks.
It is fun for this older gal to see the kiddies play and it is a drift of imagination that seems pretty harmless to me. I just try to limit my time, so I am only truly using it for recreation and relaxation.

I was disappointed when my computer was too advanced to run the old roller coaster tycoon. All the new versions were not as fun and had too many graphics for me. I was excited to find out that the original was available for advanced operating systems. Im running Windows 7. Every now and then the game will freeze or have an error but I can just start again and its fine. Just save your game often!

I was most disappointed when I found I could no longer play the original game on my system and was really pleased when I saw this game for XP. I am enjoying playing it, nothing has changed and it is as much fun as the original. The only drawback is that the amounts are all in American dollars and seeing as they ship globally you would have thought there would have been a currency option. Having said that, it is still really good and I spend many happy hours in my own theme parks!

I loved Rollercoaster Tycoon. I bought all of the first games as they came out one by one. Before they were stolen I owned an original RCT, Loopy Landscapes, and Corkscrew Follies disk.

The game came in this weird sort of cardboard sleeve that slides over the jewel case. This will inevitably be ripped and damage, and then you'll have only a jewel case with black and white graphics on it. How important that is to you is up in the air.

There's one major, major flaw with RCT Deluxe, and that will require a little bit of RCT history.

There's a fantastic fan patch called Drexler that lets you run custom scenarios. A fan created the "sandbox mode" that some of us wanted. A big, green space with nearly unlimited money. It made custom scenarios in Rollercoaster Tycoon 1 possible.

The Drexler patch will NOT work with RCT Deluxe. The last few patches made to the game (and this disk has all of the latest patches) were made solely to obfuscate code further and make it more difficult for stuff like Drexler to happen. Drexler was never updated after these last few patches.

If you care about being able to do custom games in Rollercoaster Tycoon 1 - if you care about modding and stuff like that - this is not the game to buy. Try to find an older copy compatible with Drexler.

Chris Sawyer (the creator of RCT) said that he "didn't intend" for us to play with a sandbox mode. I (and many other gamers) say that we'll figure out how we want to play our games, thank you very much. I'd have very much liked to see how he would have handled the even greater and more expansive modding community of today. Go ride a Powered Launch off the tracks, Chris. :P

This game is addictive and will keep you hooked for quite some time.

Though after completing all of the scenarios for the original game and most of them for Corkscrew Follies, it began to feel somewhat repetitive.

All the scenarios boil down to one of several goals:

1. (Most common)
Get X guests in your Park by Year X (say 2000 guests by year 4, 1400 guests by year 3) with park rating of 600

These can be fun but it's the same basic game every time... you just have to deal with new landscape challenges and occasionally they will add in some more things to make it harder... like you can't build above tree height, or you can't advertise for your park.

It would have been nice if some of the park rating goals were 800... in most cases, 600 is too easy.

2. Get a park value of $X by Year X

Usually easier than the "number of guests" types... you will usually find yourself reaching these goal and become bored waiting for the years to pass. Park value type goals are easier than guest totals, because the satisfaction of the guest is not as important, and your goal is basically to build as much as you can to get park value up.

That's pretty much it for the original game. The expansions change it up (a little)

Build 10 coasters with an excitement rating of (6 or higher, usually)
Complete 5 partially built coasters (Loopy Landscapes)
Get $X in monthly income (Loopy Landscapes)

So there does get to be a little more variety for the expansions. I personally don't really like the completing partially-built coasters. I should give those a chance but so far I haven't enjoyed them as much.

Another reason this isn't a 5-star game are some technical issues... minor ones.
