    I will add here that if the game has one drawback, it's that you can't share your created tracks with other users. It feels like that's a wasted opportunity, and I say that as someone who generally doesn't care for user-generated content. It's a sign of how awesome this game is that I just want more of it.

    What I thought would be a first-person coaster simulator, and nothing more, turned into a complex and engaging little game, letting me express both my creative and my destructive sides in one fell swoop.

    Three different gameplay types for a surprising and lengthy game.

    An interesting attempt to showcase fresh gameplay mechanics to the Xbox users. A fun theme simulator game.

    Surprisingly deep enough, flashy and cathartic, Screamride is its own roller-coaster beast, even if it is uneven at times. But thrill-seeking fans will be in for a treat with a game that will have your buttocks firmly clenched with vertigo-inducing action.

    Unfortunately this is not the spiritual successor to ThrillVille. What it gives you is a tremendous editor with convincing physics that tries to camouflage that the attached mini-games are average at best.

    Although we'd expected more from an Xbox One exclusive (it's not visually stunning, not even that decent actually), Screamride manages to provide a fresh and fun experience. It still lacks some more content and is a bit pricey though.

    Similar to Rollercoaster Tycoon and Thrillville with some Boom Blox and Flatout throw in.

You can build rollercoasters like the former games, but you can also destroy your creations and watch the people riding the coasters go loco as you bring the coaster down. Graphics are nice, though the frame-rate at times goes below 30, but not very often. This isn't a full-priced game, though, and it's pretty hilarious and fun for what it is. If you're tired of playing the same games, this is something a little different. Expand

Not sure why people are hating on this. If people are rating this a 0 because they have a ps4 and have not played the game then its pathetic.

    This is not a theme park simulator and as long as you dont expect that then you will really enjoy the game.

Microsoft keeps pumping games out. I know this game isn't a AAA exclusive,but it's a lot better than the indie sidescrollers that are on ps now or the game you're getting for free on either console. This games is SOO fun. It's something different and exciting. It has 3 different categories so it doesn't get boring. The career mode is a blast. The animations are nice though can get sort of repetitive at time. Controls voice is such a breath of fresh air. Her silly humor is so fun and keeps things interesting and keeps you smiling throughout. The game is less than the price of a full retail release its only 39.99 instead of 59.99 and I gotta say it's great value from what I've played so far. Microsoft hasn't let us gamers down with the quality of games!! Thank the lord I bought an XBOX ONE!! Keep EM coming MICROSOFT!!!! Expand

    This game is a classic love it or hate it scenario. Even the "professional" reviews are glowing or burning on this title. Take it for what itThis game is a classic love it or hate it scenario. Even the "professional" reviews are glowing or burning on this title. Take it for what it is....a lesser priced title that you WILL have fun with. The amount of time you devote to this game relates to what type of game it is. Some will only build build build (which is a very detailed editor) while others will just ride and play the other three game types. Those that are hating on the game because it isn't Rollercoaster Tycoon need to open their eyes a bit....it was never intended to be. It always has been designed and reported as a fun twist on rollercoasters.

    Personally I like it a lot....will I spend countless hours on this? Probably not...but as more of my online friends get it and post scores to beat I will return. That is the drive for me.....

    The only real cons I have are the track sharing could have been done better. It doesn't show how many people have played created tracks, scores, nothing. You can filter down for searches with good detail but this is a major miss in my book. Also...when creating a track in sandbox....once you complete the track I cannot figure out how to go back and edit it.....it gets blacked out and you are stuck with what you have. Only way I have found to get around this is get the track ALMOST finished but don't finish it.

    Overall.....a 8 is a very good score for this game. It is solidly made, fun to play and my wife even enjoys watching the destruction.

The destruction modelling is sweet, and definitely a highlight of the game. Excited to see what people can make in the sandbox mode.

    Definitely a 7/10 game. It's not perfect, but it is simply a good game.

    Screamride can be fun at times, you will have fun looking at all the explosion you have caused in the game. The sandbox mode and the engineerScreamride can be fun at times, you will have fun looking at all the explosion you have caused in the game. The sandbox mode and the engineer mode can be fun as you are tasked to create some crazy coasters. However, many other things fall flat, it has a very repetitive mission. You will found throwing cabin to buildings fun, for about an hour, you won't have any interest playing it anymore because it always feel the same. The Screamrider mode is boring, preventing riders from felling off the coaster also don't fit the theme of destruction. Speaking of destruction, it ain't really that satisfying, buildings collapsed like cardbox every time. The color tone of the game is repetitive, and you won't found any level particularly appealing or memorable. One of the biggest problems of this game is that the game feel like 3 mini-games bundled together, making it one of the most overpriced video game titles I have ever seen. You will have fun playing this game, but it won't last long, when all the fun are diluted by repetition. Expand

This time, I know why PlayStation didn't want to get their hands on this type of game. Screamride is really boring, the amount of "fun" you get is in limited amounts. The controls are horrible and the graphics are choppy. I really don't think its a "next gen" experience. Yes, the E3 announcement dissolved in water and nobody knew what the heck this was until the advertisment popped up on everyone's Xbox 360 and Xbox One dashboards. The whole amusement park thing, is undone. It's like Rollercoaster Tycoon meets Sim City minus fun minus good gameplay. The boring missions and the forgettable sandbox creation is horrible as well. Well, that about sums up my loss of 30 dollars, and the only Xbox One exclusive I am looking forward to is Halo 5. Bravo, Xbox. Another turd. Expand
