  1. It's as realistic as a virtual coaster could possibly be, and once it's over, you can't wait to get back in line to ride it again.

    Succeeds where "Rollercoaster Tycoon" and even "Sim Theme Park" failed—it gives you the true sensation of riding a rollercoaster, the logical tools to build them, and the ability to show your work quickly and easily.
  3. Graphics are really high quality...Sound is probably the worst aspect in the entire game.
  4. The game's puzzles provide plenty of challenge for amateur coaster designers, and the rating system gives you an incentive to continue working on tracks even after the basic requirements have been satisfied.
  5. 75
    You can "create the ultimate coaster -- and ride it!" But at the same time you can do very little else, and while the ride might be the ultimate, too much else just seems to be missing.

    This game is kinda fun but. It really hasn't changed since Disney's last release of a coaster game. When I got my pentium 150mhz This game is kinda fun but.

In fact, that game had features this one didn't! Full Review »
