Great fun!

The Good

I've read the other two reviews, and let me say that I haven't played the original roller coaster tycoon. So, I'm writing about the game, not its predecessor.

It's addictive, and that's about the only reason I need. What I really found amusing was the roller coaster design tool. I really liked how you could design a coaster without monetary or geographic limits (which I've been told is a problem in RCT1...) I never really got any good at making a park, but I've always had a lot of fun designing coasters.

The Bad

The graphics looked, in my opinion, a little dated. I don't mind a game that had lower quality graphics, but when I judge, I judge relative to the time it was made.

The Bottom Line

If you haven't played the original or #3, get this one. It's a lot of fun, and will make you an addict in no time.
