    You'll spend far too much time in the park, and not enough in the attractions, and that's just not very fun, no matter how old you are.
  2. While not as bad as the majority of critics are reporting it's certainly not worthy of a full price title.
  3. Should be plenty fun for the very young ones in your family. [Mar 2002, p.141]
  4. Too few mini-games, too little fun, and frustrating navigation ruin what is essentially an interesting concept. The whole debacle lasts approximately three hours, the first of which is spent locating all of the attractions and being told you can’t enter.
  5. To think this dire piece of programming is worth 40p, let along £40 is an insult to everything we believe in as dedicated gamers. Buy it...go on, we dare you. You’ll be the only fool that does...
  6. Too frustrating and convoluted for kids to have any fun with it, and all but the most desperate adult GameCube fans will find it tedious and unentertaining as well.
  7. This game just sucks. Avoid at all costs. In fact, don't even pretend that this exists.

    USTP is far and away the worst game for GameCube. I have nothing good to say about it, and plenty to say that is bad. My first temptation is USTP is far and away the worst game for GameCube. I have nothing good to say about it, and plenty to say that is bad. My first temptation is to rate USTP a mere 1 out of 10, but because a couple of the mini-games were tolerable for a few minutes I will bump my rating up to a measly 2 out of 10. Expand

    Simply put: a shallow minigame collection and a poor one at that.

    This games was a disappointment. As a big fan of the park it was a must have, but after 2-3 hours of play. I already beat and unlocked This games was a disappointment. As a big fan of the park it was a must have, but after 2-3 hours of play. I already beat and unlocked everything in the game. I recommend it for players in the age group of 1-3 years, for when their parents want them to be occupied for 10 minutes. The only reason i gave it a 2 is for the movie music the is played when you are on the rides. Expand

    Disgusting. Unworthy of a gamecube title.
