    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.

    And I thought Zoo tycoon was Bad! This crap is even worse than that s*it game, Dungeon Keeper... Hell, the user score of Ride to Hell Retribution makes it look like a pushover. 'Scuse me got to go to episode 4 of TWD "Amid The Ruins". Expand

    This game is a terrible cash grab. Horrible attempt to make money with as minimal of effort as possible. Every conceivable thing in this game feels rushed, and its just saddening that they put the number 4 in the title. Expand

    Like everyone else here, I agree this game is just truly horrendous. 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

    Only someone who hates both fun and money should purchase this game. All the enjoyment you could possibly get out of playing a roller coast tycoon game, has been sucked out and replaced by microtransactions. I would get more enjoyment out of murdering everyone I loved. And it would be cheaper as well. Expand

    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 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

    WHAT THE **** ATARI?
    I, for one, loved RCT3, and for many years
    I've been waiting for the fourth entry. First,
    we get some atrocious 3DS
    game, and now this BS.
    I cannot believe this game costs real money, and then asks for more,
    its like that star trek game from last year which wasn't possible to play
    without hitting a PAYWALL (thanks for that, angryjoe), only that game was unplayable
    and unbearable. Just how **** like this gets good rating from "gamers" proves how inaccurate the
    app store ratings can be.
    This game is barely playable, and as a loyal fan of the series (since the 3rd entree) I have to say this:
    Atari, I liked the 3rd entry, but it still felt like a downgrade on other portions. Now, you have completely lost my respect with entry's like this that don't even TRY. Look what you've done and fix it, please, so the REAL RCT4 doesn't suck! and good luck to greenheart games on game dev tycoon mobile!

    I am telling you right now, DO NOT buy this game. It is just a continuation of a trend in mobile gaming, developers adding in disgusting in-app purchases to try and suck money out of you.

    In case you haven't heard, Atari recently (kind of) filed for bankruptcy. They need any money they can get at this point, but this game has no similarity to previous RCT games, and only bears the name of RollerCoaster Tycoon to try and suck you into a game that really is just timers and paywalls. Atari has pretty much stomped all over what we've grown up on, and after 10 years, this is what we get?

    And even worse, this game is $2.99 (at least in Canada, may be different in other countries). There are tons of games like this that are FREE. Atari is, quite obviously, using the RCT name to try and make you pay $2.99 for a game that is pushing you to pay even more in IAP. I'm telling you, don't waste your time and money on this terrible excuse of a game, if you want to even call it that, because you'll be waiting more than you'll be playing (unless you buy tickets with real, hard-earned money).
