  1. Daily Radar
    A brilliant game that brings some much-needed variety to the PS2's lineup.
  2. When you finish it's time for a ride and what a ride it is! Playstation makes you feel as if you are there taking each twist and turn with the console. This has to be almost as good as IMAX, without leaving your living room!
  3. The control scheme is well designed, the interface simple, and the entire package is just a whole lot of fun.
  4. Provides a lot of gameplay, and while it can be a bit on the redundant side – which is a problem with the genre as much as this particular title – it does offer a diverse number of environments and themes.

    A fun, clean addictive game that's intelligent and highly amusing.
  6. An addicting and enjoyable simulation.
  7. A slow-paced but rewarding simulation that borders on relaxing.
  8. Roughly 9,200 people are injured yearly on roller coasters—and here’s your chance to add to the carnage!
  9. It allows anyone to be a kid all over again and create some imaginary world where everything is to your liking, the place where you would really like to go and have fun.
  10. It's not pretty, and the sounds may drive you batty. However, if you can get past the primitive and cutesy graphics, you'll find a fun and addictive experience that offers an enjoyable--and certainly more cerebral--PS2 experience that's currently unmatched.

    This game is very fun once you get the hang of it, but it takes a die hard sim fan to give this game a very long life.
