    Through all of the ups, and downs of RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile, it’s still an enjoyable experience allowing you to simply build roller coaster on your iOS device, and expand your park in various ways making it worth picking up.

    RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile does little to earn its name, or its price tag. Sad as it is to say, it's almost indistinguishable from any other free-to-play building game. Atari is obviously hoping to sell the game on its name alone. For that, somebody in charge needs to be forced to ride on the last car of a wooden roller coaster for a year straight. No bathroom breaks.

    Rollercoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile is a fun diversion if you’re willing to spend money, or if you have no issue waiting hours for a timer to expire.

    At this point you would be far better off picking up a copy of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 then dishing any money out for this one.

    There was no need to sully the name of Rollercoaster Tycoon with this release, but nostalgia aside this is still a sub-par social game with minimal gameplay and a heavy-handed focus on in-app purchases.

    Little more than an abject demonstration of how micro-transaction abuse can completely destroy the amusement value of a game.

    I never would have thought I'd say this about a video game, but Rollercoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile is just absolutely sickening.

I mean the game isn't brilliant but its not terrible either. RCT4 Mobile is a more Cityville-like version of RCT. Depending on your tastes, this may or may not be a good thing. You have to wait for rides to finish building and the iPad version chrases once in a while, but with a bit of patience it can be a decently fun experience.

    Give it a try. The game is now free. Just don't get any of the micro transaction stuff, its not worth your money.

The one good thing to come of it though is the fact that it's being reamed in terms of reviews. If this ridiculous "game" pricing structure is going to continue, let's keep up the negative reviews/press to tell developers that we aren't stupid and we aren't going to buy this method. Expand

    Well, I'm glad I got this game free of charge. Now the only thing I wasted was the time I spent in game. Unlike previous entries of the RollerWell, I'm glad I got this game free of charge. Now the only thing I wasted was the time I spent in game. Unlike previous entries of the Roller Coaster Tycoon series where creativity and resource management skills are essential, the only resource management you will need is that of your wallet (if you even care to continue after downloading). The gameplay consists of erecting structures, waiting for the construction (which takes an excruciatingly long time), monetizing off the ride/building (which also takes an excruciatingly long time), rinse and repeat. You can expedite the process through in app purchases, but why bother? This game lacks the creative build functions from previous games to make it worth your while. Forget this game. It's slander to tack on a four to such a great game series without even remotely meeting expectations. Expand

My hope for a good iOS game or just a game for mobile devices has just been fade away by this game. I played Bioshock for iPhone and that game was just horrible, but this...
    I can't describe my feeling by rating this game. There was a game called Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 which was made by 3 people!! This game is just a disaster and has no reason to exist!!
    There are no good things i can tell about this game. I feel ashamed for playing this game.

    Whatever you do, don't buy this pile or garbage. What's worse, is that it still has MICRO F**KING TRANSACTIONS. 2 types as well. Don't giveWhatever you do, don't buy this pile or garbage. What's worse, is that it still has MICRO F**KING TRANSACTIONS. 2 types as well. Don't give Atari your money at the moment, they have gone half-bankrupt, and have absolutely trashed the RCT series with this "game". Don't buy it even if your life depended on it. Expand

Nothing seems to be sacred in this trend of cash grab rehashes of classic games. I can only hope these pitiful attempts to milk money from the nostalgic won't continue for much longer. Expand
