  1. Armchair tycoons who haven't already played RollerCoaster Tycoon to death on their PCs should find a lot to like here.
  2. The Xbox version is as close to the original as possible but the sloppy execution of accessing the interface is hampered by the limited control system.
  3. Only PC-less coaster fanatics should even think about purchasing. This is still fun, but anti-enhanced. [July 2003, p.84]
  4. A mediocre-looking strategy game with amazing depth and gameplay value - a decent enough ride to be sure, and maybe even worth the $30 price of admission. [Aug 2003, p.89]

    I can't recommend this version of this game. Infogrames has offered gamers absolutely no reason to choose the console iteration over the PC original.

    this game is fun and addicting but the graphics are adequate. the rollercoasters lack options and the guests are identified by numbers.

It's an exact port of the pc original but with console (no mouse) controls - it works well. I haven't been this addicted to an xbox game in a really long time. Full Review »
