  • Summary: Off the Rails lives up to its name with 20 death-defying rides so outrageous, they inspire the same word from every park visitor who sees them: "WHOA!" Players build these incredible "WHOA Coasters" to leap from one track to another, launch through the air like cannonballs, blast through a burning rings of fire and more. A new lighthearted story ties together more than 100 missions, complete with 34 playable multiplayer theme-park games and social interaction with park guests that's better than ever. The in-depth conversations both advance the plot and suggest better ways to manage the park. But is every guest to be trusted? [LucasArts] Expand

  1. Old fashioned to look at, but packed with invention and things to do. [Christmas 2007, p.77]
  2. A smart and vividly simple holiday, for younger players only. [Christmas 2007, p.79]
  3. The game itself is bright and happy and optimistic, it’s well made, and it includes enough content to be well worth its suggested retail price.

    If you can put up with some repetition and the simplicity of the management system, you'll enjoy yourself. Most of the mini-games are quite a bit of fun, too, and they make for some good multiplayer sessions.
  5. The concept is better than the execution, but that doesn’t stop this being a good game that provides more than enough choice to justify its price tag. [Dec 2007, p.108]
  6. Thrillville remains an easy franchise for casual gamers and youngsters alike to pick up and jump right into.
  7. A refreshing change, if not very thrilling. [Dec 2007, p.102]

    A pretty decent game that continues on from the first Thrillville game. The game is colorful, lighthearted and easy to play. In fact one of my main grievances is that this game is far too easy, even when set to the highest difficulty. Clearly this game was intended for a younger audience. But even so, it's still allot of fun and nice game to play if you are looking for some plain old fun.

    Overall:
    Clearly a kids game, but still fun for adults, as long as they don't go in expecting a challenge.
