Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 (2004)
Developer: Frontier Developments, Ltd.
Platform: Personal Computer
Purchase Date: 2004

I hope that billboard will bring more hits to this site. I paid a lot of money for it.

Ever dream of managing your own theme park? If you want to get a fast ticket of making that dream into a reality, Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 is the best theme park simulator there is. Alongside its two expansions, Soaked! and Wild!, the level of customizations offered in the game is practically endless. You can build your park from the ground up or play through the goal-based scenarios. You can customize the look of your park to fit a particular theme or go crazy and mix it all up. You can create animal shows and customize little details like the routine of tricks being performed. You can custom build your own roller-coaster, complete with real physics with minute number calculations offered for your perusal. You can create a marvelous firework display and cutting edge light shows. As a matter of fact, there are so many things that you can do, it becomes a bit too daunting at first.

Soaked! gives you more flexibility and options for water-based attractions
while Wild! is all about turning your theme park into a mini-zoo.

Once you are used to the plethora of option screens to manage, you will be in for a very engrossing and rewarding experience. I just love managing the flow of cost and profit for the theme park - an activity that never grows old because the park is a living, breathing creature that must be closely maintained to ensure that everything is operating as it should. The graphics are not that great at extreme close up but everything still holds up well when you zoom out. Whenever you feel like you are doing too much work, you can always jump on one of your attractions and see it all through the eyes of your customers! I haven't played this game for a long time - I just reinstalled everything yesterday - and I ended up playing it all night long.

LIBRARY STATUS: 5 out of 5
