Summary

If this was an expansion pack, it would have been good. As a game, it just blows.

The Good

Well, Roller Coaster Tycoon, after many rave reviews, fans, and expansion packs, has a sequel.

The one thing that is excellent about Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 is the coaster editor, where you can build your own coaster without the worry of cost and landscape. Unfortunately, that's about it of the good stuff.

The Bad

Graphically, RCT2 makes no technological leap. The graphics are the same old RCT graphics, which were great those years ago, but now look bland and boring. In my opinion, the makers were just too scared to change the look. Same goes for sound and basically everything else.

The Bottom Line

If this was an expansion pack, it would have been good. As a game, it just blows. Roller Coaster Tycoon should have been upgraded with new graphics and gameplay, while keeping some of the things that made it so popular. I rate RCT2, a **1 out of 5**.
