    It's not bad, really. It's got a little bit of everything to satisfy every type of gamer--from the Sims-like interaction with the crowd and the mini-games (which most are knock-offs of other more popular titles). The premise is, you start with a theme park with basic rides and you have to build your reputation as a park manager and friend doing multiple tasks such as park It's not bad, really.

The premise is, you start with a theme park with basic rides and you have to build your reputation as a park manager and friend doing multiple tasks such as park upkeep, running marketing campaigns, and of course making the visitors happy. The best part is definitely the mini-games, although a few really tough to master and come in with the high scores (such as the training of your ride mechanics with the motherboard circuits). Overall though, it's decent and should keep most entertained at least for a little while. Worth a rent. Expand

    Thrillville: Off the Rails is a fun single player game, and a really great party game! You can build roller coasters (and ride them), concession stands, mini-games (and play them) and more!

    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.A pretty decent game that continues on from the first Thrillville game.

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

    Combining the cutesiness of a Pixar flick with the depth of a theme-park tycoon game, LucasArts' Thrillville series smoothly transitions onto the Xbox 360 with Off the Rails, a souped-up and entertaining follow-up to last year's Xbox release. [Dec 2007, p.76]
  2. Sure it's a family-oriented game, but it was so fun that its kid-friendly nature did not hinder it in the slightest from being fun for gamers of all ages. And any comparison between this game and the classic Roller Coaster Tycoon are unfair because the games have completely different focuses.

    The 360 version is definitely our favorite and feels the most refined. It not only runs just about as well as the PC version, but it has the party game element that the PC lacks.
