"Better Than The First"

Introduction- This game comes from the first game in its series Rollercoaster Tycoon. The first Roller Coaster Tycoon already has two expansion packs but Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 has tons of new features that the other games don't even come close to. This time the game includes all new thrill rides, roller coasters, scenery, signs, food stalls, gentle rides. It also includes new parks and different objectives for each one. A new addition to the series is a scenario editor in which you can make your own park and chose which rides you want created or which ones you want to start with.

Gameplay/10-10/ The gameplay in this game is sweet. All of the controls are easy to get the hang of including how to create rides and how to customize your own roller coaster. It is also easy to look up on how happy your guests are and how your park rating is doing. The game isn't that hard but there is a lot of levels to complete and each one will take you a long time to beat. The game is very fun and the roller coasters are the sweetest. Now you can even build roller coasters that are from real Six Flags parks, including Deja Vu, The Shockwave, the Texas Giant, Medusa, Vertical Velocity, the Titan, and many more. Overall the controls are easy to get the hang of, it isn't that hard but it is very fun to play.

Graphics/9-10/ The graphics in this game are very good and all the things in the game almost look realistic. Some of the things like your guests could have been made to look a little more realistic but other than that the graphics are the bomb. Overall the graphics are GREAT and that's about all I can say about that.

New Features- Some of the new features in this game include new roller coaster designs, new thrill rides, new gentle rides, a bunch of new food stalls, and many new signs. There is also new environments to play in like dinosaurs and ice. Another or maybe the best new feature is the scenario editor where you can create your own park and choose how much land you want to start off with and where you want trees, where you want to raise or lower land, and where you want to make the park entrance.

Sound/10-10/ The sound in the game is awesome, from the sound of the roller coasters going up a hill or the people on the roller coasters screaming while going down a hill. Everywhere in the game the sound is great including your guests, the rides and roller coasters, and the sounds from the merry go round and the bumper cars. Overall the sound is great and there is nothing wrong with it throughout the whole entire game and that is why I gave it a 10-10.

Value/8-10/ The game will take you a long time to beat with at least 20 or more levels so its replay value is very high. After you beat all of the levels you can still play the level scenario mode where you can create your own park. Overall it is worth your money to purchase the game and its replay ability is very high but the game does get boring after a while that is why I did not give higher than an 8.

Overall- Overall I recommend buying the game if you are interested with roller coasters or amusements parks because it is the closest you will probably ever get to creating your own roller coasters or amusement parks. Final word is to buy this game because of its sweet graphics and awesome gameplay and sound.
