"Rollercoaster of Love , du du du duuuuu"

Rollercoaster Tycoon is one of the greatest sims ever made and one of the best of the Tycoon series. Very fun but takes along time to play.

The graphics are so-so on this game but good enough that they don't hinder the gameplay. You can choose from about 25 colors for your rides. The ride graphics are also good and look very cool. Graphics aren't a big deal for this game though since its a sim.

The gameplay is great in Rollercoaster Tycoon also. There is alot to do in this game. You can choose whatever rides you want of coarse , choose how much the ride cost , what they look like , and how long you want the line to be. You hire people to clean and fix up your park and make food courts for people to eat if they get hungry. Just like a real asumusment park you got to check rides and clean up litter. There are different missions you have to do , like you are placed as the park controller and you have to run a park for a certain amount of time and have a certain number of people in your park before the time is up , they give your plenty of time though. You also have to research , but you start off with about 10.

Rides are divided into sections Transportation , Gentle , Rollcoaster , Thrill , Water , and Service Stands. Transportation is trains and chair lifts and various other stuff , Gentle Rides are stuff like Sides and Merry-Go-Rounds , Rollcoasters you should all ready know about , Thrill Rides are stuff like super , fast spining stuff , and stuff that would make you dizzy and such. Water Rides are stuff like Boat Rides and Water Rapids and Service Stands are Food , Information , and Bathroom buildings.

No multiplayer this game is one-player

The sound is so-so but the ride music might drive you crazy , they have a mute button if you don't like it but they don't have an button for turning sound down or up or you will have to do that before you start the game. You can also hear the people on rides yell in joy.

Replay Value
Not much replay value , but trust me the time you finish this game there will probably me 5 more versions out since it takes so long to beat this game. Since there is different missions you have to do.

I give this game a 8.
