Theme Park World es uno de los juegos de estrategia más interesantes del catálogo de PSOne. La gran cantidad de opciones, la profundidad de su mecánica, la fuerte personalidad de los parques, su gran adictividad y lo variado de su desarrollo son sus mejores alicientes. Eso sí, hay que tener en cuenta que este tipo de estrategia es un género más "pausado", que no gusta a todos los jugones. Salvando este detalle y lo limitado de sus apartados técnicos, sin duda se trata de un título muy a tener en cuenta, aún sin estar en la parte más destacada y conocida del amplio catálogo de PSOne.
Mega Fun
Theme Park wird angesichts des vor fünf Jahren erschienenen Vorgängers den Erwartungen inhaltlich voll und ganz gerecht. An vielen Stellen ist das Spielprinzip vereinfacht worden, was der Simulation im Großen und Ganzen entgegen kommt. Eine netter Anreiz sind neben dem freundlichen Grinsen der kindlichen Kunden vor allem die versteckten goldenen Eintrittskarten, die zum Weiterspielen animieren, obwohl die Hauptaufgaben eines Levels bereits erfüllt sind. Technisch ist TPW leider etwas enttäuschend. Die langsame Steuerung nervt ebenso wie das starke Ruckeln im Kamera-Modus. Schafft ihr es aber, großzügig darüber hinweg zu sehen, erwartet euch ein goldiges Spielchen, das nicht nur für Simulationsfans geeignet ist.
Gamer's Pulse
The gameplay somehow drew me in. As skeptical as I was, I found myself looking up at my jewel encrusted clock at three o’clock in the morning, wondering if I had time to open another park. Maybe I would just lay down a couple of paths, possibly place a couple of rides, but that’s it. So foolish was I. I became addicted. I thought that Sim Theme Park was a ton of fun to play, and replay. It’s one of those games that you could pick up and start in on again after a month or two. I would recommend this game. It was highly enjoyable, sim or no sim. Everybody loves amusement parks, and this gives you a chance, a glimpse, of what it would be like to create one of your very own.
Theme Park World est un excellent simulateur qui, grâce à la 3D prend une autre ampleur : le jeu est fouillé, riche en action, avec une technique un peu fade, mais qui tient tout de même la route ! Bullfrog reste ainsi fidèle à sa politique de jeu de qualité.
Absolute Playstation
Everything within Theme Park World has been simplified to help get you underway, but the most annoying aspect of this game is that it doesn't realize that players grow up. "Hey, developers! We live and learn!" By the third world we don't want to be constantly reminded about high ticket prices because we can easily look at the gate. If customers are turning away we will drop our entry fee. Overall not a bad game for the first world, but after that it's just more of the same.
Super Play
Eftersom det finns så många olika kombinationer, minispel, gömda detaljer och framåtanda i Theme Park World är det nästan omöjligt att tycka illa om spelet. Visst är det kanske lite väl påfrestande ibland, men ändå ett spel som man kan göra frekventa återbesök i. Att bygga sin egen värld är alltid kul.

If you long to be a theme park tycoon then this may be your bag. Otherwise, it's a fairly boring idea for a simulation.

Bullfrog maakt prachtige games, maar de PSX-versie van Theme Park World is een beetje 'kapotversimpeld' en daardoor niet echt een plekje in je gameskast waard. Geef mij maar de PC-versie!
Game Revolution
Sim Theme Park is a cute game with initial appeal and a nice premise, but eventually dies down to a slow whirl. Poorly ported graphics and controls don't help much, either. If you have a choice, you should probably buy a Disneyland ticket over this game. Believe me, it'll last longer.
