Summary

Great game and one of the first rollercoaster games.

The Good

It's a lot of fun the build your own coaster. But you can do that in a lot of other games too. But what's great about Coaster is that you can ride the coasters in a first person perspective. Good graphics. It's also really easy to design your own coaster. I had trouble learning how to custom make coasters in RollerCoaster Tycoon but this only took a few minutes.

The Bad

Too many limitations. Your coaster can only be so big and so tall and it can only use so many parts. The people who rate the game are stupid. You have a realistic coaster and they say it sucks. You have a coaster that goes 200 mph with 30 loops which would break your neck and they give it a high rating. The game could use a little more scenery. There isn't enough sound.

The Bottom Line

I like this game more than RollerCoaster Tycoon.
