  1. A classic reworked to its former glory. This works well on othe DS and is great fun, but the silly amount of depth makes it excessively complicated too. [May 2007, p.76]
  2. Although it isn't for everyone, this DS version should definitely be snapped up by those who enjoy games that require a bit of thought and time investment, as well as by those who like to show off their creativity.
  3. Gamestyle does still love Theme Park just as much as when we first played it in 1994, it is still disappointing to see that EA Japan haven't added anything apart from having a little helper guide you through the game.

    Theme Park on the DS is essentially just a port, but the game has aged well and is still a fantastic title for those who like sim games.
  5. Being able to swap profiles using Wi-Fi is a nice touch, but we don't need to be touched, we need to be manhandled.
  6. Its depth is fairly lacking by modern standards, so genre veterans may want to stay clear, but management sim newcomers will find a well designed and fun little game.
  7. The game does have a whimsical charm, however, and the majority of play control is touch-activated and intuitive. [May 2007, p.86]
