    Rollercoaster Tycoon World has so much potential. All of the base pieces are here, and the game’s content is being expanded to match that promise, but stability problems and bugs hamstring what could be a solid park creator. There’s a fun game here…but you can’t experience it if the game won’t stop crashing.

    RollerCoaster Tycoon World is a pale shadow of the past RollerCoaster Tycoon 3. The rollercoaster editor works well, but it is also the only good element of the game.

    Just call the bulldozer already: This theme park ruin is ready for demolition and is neither safe nor enjoyable to play in. Better get Planet Coaster asap.

    It won’t cause as many laughs as it did in Early Access, but also won’t give you as many thrills as the originals. Roller Coaster Tycoon World is a fumbled hodgepodge of ideas that are emotionally detached from what makes a Tycoon game great.

    It would be a quite decent theme park simulations if it weren't for all those bugs, crashes and a sub-par performance.

    RollerCoaster Tycoon World is a mess. Buy and play Planet Coaster instead.

    Recent updates and price changes make this game worth to buy. Its not as bad anymore like people want it to be. performance is sollid and iRecent updates and price changes make this game worth to buy. Its not as bad anymore like people want it to be. performance is sollid and i feel it feels like an original roler coaster tycoon game. Building path has also grealty improved and the UI is very smooth now. I would really give this game a chance again because it has improved so much that i think the developers deserve better Expand

    Pretty darn decent!
    This game has a bit to go before its full potential becomes realized, but big improvement over last viewing.

    If this game has legs, perhaps it will be everything people wanted, once the edges are ironed out by the devs.

    Cons:

    -Crashes
    -Bugs
    -Horribly bland soundtrack
    -Ugly peeps
    -The art style is wrong for a RCT game-- they tried a more realistic approach and it looks like crap.

    Pros:
    -Large selection of different rides and coasters to build.
    -The coaster editor is actually fairly decent.

    Just avoid this game and go buy Planet Coaster if you're looking for a good theme park simulation game. Planet Coaster is literally 10x better than Roller Coaster Tycoon World in every way.

I picked this up because the deluxe edition was $20. I figured since it stays updated, a lot of the bugs and stuff would be worked out. I was completely wrong. $20 is still too much for this. The new coaster building mechanic is great, but that is all I can say. I logged 72 minutes on and played a total of probably 5 or 10. Loading times are ridiculous and it kept crashing so I kept losing my progress. Even with sandbox mode, the parks are TINY. Remember in 3 how big sandbox mode was? Well, you're not getting that here. When it comes to thrill rides and "flat rides" as they call it, the selection is pretty good, encompassing some items that aren't in other games, but still lacks a lot that 3 had. When it comes to coaster selection, it's laughable. Sure they look better and more detailed, but there are only a handful. 3 had so much more. Despite having better graphics, I can't recommend this over 3. You'd think in almost 13 years we'd get a good RCT return.. but nope. Just bad. Really really bad. I figured the reviews were over-exaggerating, but they're not. Expand

    One of the of the worst releases of 2016 and it caught a lot of people off guard which were expecting a quality title as it has the RCT nameOne of the of the worst releases of 2016 and it caught a lot of people off guard which were expecting a quality title as it has the RCT name behind it. Buy Planet Coaster instead which is from the developers of RCT2 expansions and the full RCT3 game.

    The reason I give this a 0 is there was constant lying from ATARI about the games development and the fact they were selling a Early Access title in retail stores with a warning so small and vague 99% of people would not know any better.

    This game is a bad joke and pls dont buy it. Atari makes big lie with promotion of a legendary game series. RCTW is not from the same team ofThis game is a bad joke and pls dont buy it. Atari makes big lie with promotion of a legendary game series. RCTW is not from the same team of RCT3.

    The game is broken! The game crashes, lagging and freezes. The animation a weak and the coaster mechanics are stupid. The Developer doesnt have the knowledge of Coasters. Look the stupid Spinning Coaster.

    0 Points for this bad broken game.
