    This is the best sim series. Building, planning and creating an amusement park is hours of fun. I still play this game to this day.

    Well...there was a time when games took several months to complete back in the 90's and early 00's. Today's games like Resident Evil:Well...there was a time when games took several months to complete back in the 90's and early 00's. Today's games like Resident Evil: Operation Raccoon City focus more on graphics than long game play. It really puts your graphic card to the test. RollerCoaster Tyccoon is so fun and very nostalgic and with the two expansions it only takes even longer to complete. Thank you for that. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. Overall, Rollercoaster Tycoon is an excellent game with a few minor flaws that don't really detract too much from the overall experience. The late 90s isometric graphics have aged well. Even those used to more modern graphics will be satisfied with what they see here.

    The best part of the game (for me, at least) is building massive roller coasters. It can be a bit cumbersome at first. You have to remember the little details like banking curves or else you will wind up with a ride that is extremely intense yet boring. Some of the coasters can be frustrating to build, like bobsleds and side-friction coasters, because they will crash if they go faster than a certain speed during a curve or going uphill. You can easily find them launching off the track. And even if you test them and everything runs smoothly, the weight added by the guests can be the difference between a safe ride and a disaster.

    Other rides work as well. Some of them are simple with no special challenges whatsoever. just plop down that 3x3 or 4x4 square and add the line and exit path, and you're set. Others require a custom design, like log flumes and water slides.

    With dozens of scenarios in the original game and the expansion packs, you won't run out of objectives for a long time. And then when you finally beat the games, you get nice bonuses, like the Mega Park, a huge park with tons of options and no scenario objective other than "Have fun!"

    I recommend this game, especially on Steam.

    But once you exit the game, make sure you right-click, or else your mouse won't click on anything. Something about how the game takes over the mouse causes modern Windows computers to fail to click until the user right-clicks.
