    Gives new meaning to depth. [Dec 2002, p.149]
  2. The colors look relatively poor, and the camera still cannot be moved in 3D; this is one of the worst flaws of the game as it actually affects gameplay.

    Long story short, if you own the first RCT and its two expansions, then you already own about 80 percent of RCT 2. [Holiday 2002, p.97]
  4. True tycoons out there needn't waste their money. You've been on this ride before.
  5. There's not enough new content here to justify a standalone release.
  6. Computer Gaming World
    70
    A good game, if not ground-breaking like the original. [Jan 2003, p.108]

    If at first you succeed, don't change a thing. That could be the motto of Chris Sawyer's RollerCoaster Tycoon 2, a sequel that is essentially the exact same game as its predecessor.

    I think rollercoaster tycoon2 is fun because you get to build your own rides and parks to earn cash from people that is coming to have fun

Now although many prefer the original RCT, which is also fantastic, I played this version more. By now, it definitely appears dated, but the dated graphics and isometric view don't degrade the gameplay quality at all. This game is a true classic, and even still runs flawlessly on newer OS. The design of the game is simply perfect, and although its not particularly deep, this game will always be my standby for an absolutely brilliant coaster simulator.

    (Let's hope Planet Coaster beats it, Eh?)

But RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 added more from RCT1 into this game. I love making coasters to build more excitement to my guests or just kill them. The only problem I have with this game is that a few things are missing for me and it is really similar to the first RollerCoaster Tycoon game. Expand

    The original Rollercoaster Tycoon was a huge 10/10, unfortunately, this is exactly the same game. The rides are exactly the same, the The original Rollercoaster Tycoon was a huge 10/10, unfortunately, this is exactly the same game. The rides are exactly the same, the graphics are exactly the same, the interface is exactly the same... additions are limited to a couple of new rollercoaster types and a cash machine. It is hard to imagine that this could even justify a patch, let alone a whole new game. Take my advice and stay away. If you're really into a three year old game go out and buy the original. You won?t be able to notice the difference and you?ll save a packet. Expand
