Summary

Never cared much for this one.

The Good

The graphics are reasonable, the premise is interesting at the very least, but the game misses its intended purpose by a large margin.

The Bad

The graphics, though quite good, are not very fluent and the engine was very slow on my 486 DX2. The gameplay is very flawed with unbearably non-intuitive interface and stupid, unreasonable reactions from the public - even if your park is extremely well designed and run you're still very likely to lose the game. The idea is interesting but not very well-implemented (not enough buildings etc.) and there's not enough control over what happens in the game.

The Bottom Line

In short, a flop, and very un-Bullfrog-like.
