    Planet Coaster Console Edition is as comfortable in consoles as it was in PC. Everything remains intact, including the extensive management options and almost endless creative possibilities with roller coasters and buildings. It takes time and patience to get used to it, but if you like theme parks the effort will be worth it.

    Planet Coaster: Console Edition is the PlayStation 4 port of the famous management software; a great experience.

    Planet Coaster rides the line between warm and friendly accessibility and in-depth theme park management surprisingly well, even if it does occasionally wobble nervously with the switch to console controls. It’s a largely serene experience with an utterly engrossing roller coaster creation tool that just makes the overall package that much better.

    Planet Coaster: Console Edition is a good port to consoles. It lacks some of the PC content and it has some technical problems, but it is still a very good experience.

    Planet Coaster is uplifting and allows you to let your imagination run wild. It’s full of charm, wit and is the perfect escapism that fits your every need. [Issue#183, p.94]

    The console edition of Planet Coaster is a great port from PC that works perfectly with console controllers, and if you are a fan of simulation games and patient enough to learn all the mechanisms of the game, you will definitely enjoy it.

    Planet Coaster Console Edition is a game that almost entirely maintains the content of its previous installment for PC. Leaving us not so good feelings in terms of innovation, but without a doubt it is a title that is at the height of its previous version.

    Sorry .. anybody that down rates this game has clearly not played it long enough. moaning coz there are menus to navigate ..please. This gameSorry .. anybody that down rates this game has clearly not played it long enough. moaning coz there are menus to navigate ..please. This game is awesome , i mean awesome. It will provide hours uopn hours of entertainment , you might thinks its fiddly , but Ive had no problem with the menus , just learn how to use them. Some players want the game to play for them !! its looks and plays great , loads of game options to choose from , for me career is the best as it teaches you how to play the game , and there is a great feeling dragging a flagging park back to greatness. If sandbox is your thing great you can do that too.

    I will buy absolutely every DLC for this game its that good. Go get it

The game runs smooth on PS4 even though the console has obvious hardware limits (due the advanced technology of the new consoles and PC Gamers). My first impression, when I got the game, was not good, because there was a lot of menus and tabs that kept me confused. But as soon as I got to know how to use all the tools I couldn't stop playing at all. To those who keep complaining about the game, give the game a chance. Okay, it has a building limit, but it also forces you to make more creative decisions. Expand

Of course there will be menus , there are thousand of things to choose from. The optimization is fantastic if you actually learn how to navigate it. If you cant handle that, go play something else.

    Game looks great and plays great. And with the workshop growing each month, it will be even better.

    Plus for the fantastic tutorials they added, making it even easier compared to the PC version.

    Now Im gonna go back to getting rollercoaster approved, its hard , I keep making them too extreme :)

    The tutorial is awful and the controls suck. Rent the game first before purchasing. I wish I had a pc to play this on instead.

Im contantly getting staff quitting even though i pay them high and train them. Every few seconds they are walking out. I got large staff rooms for them but they wont use them at all. Benches and bins get randlised all the time even though i have CCTV cameras and security everywhere but they do nothing at all and quit too. Crowds of customers huddle in groups on the path and get stuck so cannot get them to move. Even crowds stuck 50m in the air somehow. Exit gate for rides also is common for people claiming they are stuck but they aren't. This always happens meaning that i cannot proceed at all so i have to start again only for it to repeat. Im so annoyed as this game obviously hasn't been tested and coz i preordered it i am stuck with it and cannot play it properly. Waste of money. Avoid. Expand
