I remember Theme Park getting before this in 3d, and also...i sort of remember not liking that title. this, on the other hand was great! I didn't play that much with it as the first two, but since i've wanted to sit on my own rides since i was 12, it really excited me that i finally could. And boy, is it fun! The people are really adorable in this. I love them almnost as much as their 2d versions. Recommended wholehearthedly! :)
This is a game where you have to manage a theme park. You can build rides, using presets or fully designing your own layout for the ride. Food and drink, toilets and more are also under your control. In the platinum edition, you also get the 2 expansions adding swimming pools and water slides, and animals. I love this game, and I still think it's good, even in the wake of planet coaster.
RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 is an incredibly fun game. I've spent hundreds of hours into the game and I can't think of any other game that gave me so much fun for so little money. Creating and managing a park of your own is very satisfying. The third installment of the Rollercoaster Tycoon series offers full 3D as well as the best feature for me - the ability to experience your own rides in first person PoV. There are tons of things to do in the game and the replay value is huge - the variety of different buildings and types of items and customization is insane. If you use mods you get even more freedom in building your dream theme park. You can also try out the scenarios which I found very challenging. To sum up, if you are into simulation games and roller coaster theme parks, this is the best bang for your buck for sure.
As a big fan of the RCT series, RCT3 which heralded 3D environments and the ability to ride the rides you create is the pinnacle of the series to date. There is just insane amounts to do. So much ride customisation, scenery and buildings, various items and editors - you can build pretty much anything, and by the time you have discovered some user-created custom-scenery mods (which are devilishly simple to install) you can make literally anything. Whether you want to challenge yourself at the scenario mode (some of which are really tough), create something unique, or create death-inducing rides in which to kill all the peeps in your park in glorious 3D - this game does it all. It's been around a decade now, and yet I still can't think of any other entertainment medium or product that has ever offered me better value for money in terms of time spent and enjoyment had.
In this Rollercoaster Tycoon sequel, everything gets bigger and it's in full 3D. Is it better though? A big component of Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 is being able to "ride" your rides now. That being having a POV look at what the riders of the coasters experience when they are on it. It is a great feature for the game. But besides that, 3 doesn't really add anything. Yes, the game is in full 3D now, but I preferred the older look of the original and 2. If you haven't played a Rollercoaster Tycoon game yet (which would be hard to believe), then 3 might be your best bet. The game is so easy to get into, and some of the most fun you will find in a simulation game. Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 is good fun.
