When I first heard word of RCT3’s first expansion being based around swimming pools and such, I have to say I was a bit worried. I thought it sounded too specific and was afraid there wouldn’t be enough content to drive a full expansion pack. Well, let me tell you that it isn’t just about swimming pools (even though those are a blast to create) and there are plenty of things to play with.

Da können die Temperaturen noch so steigen, wegen Soaked! werde ich den Sommer im klimatisierten Zimmer verbringen. Die neuen Wasser-Attraktionen fügen sich so gut in das Spiel ein, dass ich beim ersten Mal alle anderen Fahrgeschäfte vergessen und das gesamte Gebiet zu einem Mega-Erlebnisbad ausgebaut habe. Und ob Raftingbahn oder Wasserrutsche: Die erste eigene Fahrt ist immer wieder ein Erlebnis. Doch warum muss der Bahnen-Bau noch immer so fummelig sein?

Dankzij deze prima uitbreiding kunnen we de aankoop van RTC3 nu echt aanbevelen. Een krachtige pc blijft wel noodzakelijk.

Ich bin kein großer Freund von Schwimmbädern. Trotzdem versüßt Soaked mir das Tycoon-Leben – hier muss ich schließlich nicht selbst im Chlor paddeln, sondern bin der Bademeister. Und dank der neuen Attraktionen kann ich meine Parks mit noch mehr Themenbereichen ausschmücken und das PC PowerPlay-Logo in die Luft lasern. Ich verstehe aber nicht, warum sich an den Macken des Hauptprogramms nichts getan hat. Das Bauen komplizierter Bahnen und die Performance sind noch immer ein Graus.

Ohne Erfinder Chris Sawyer, dafür mit einer atemberaubenden 3D-Grafik setzte die Rollercoaster Tycoon-Serie Ende vergangenen Jahres ihren Siegeszug rund um den Globus fort. Weltweit griffen knapp zwei Millionen Spieler zum kurzweiligen dritten Teil der Achterbahn-Wundertüte und entwarfen unzählige Freizeitparks mit den abgefahrensten Konstruktionen und Fahrgeschäften.

When RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 was released in November of 2004, it received mostly mixed reviews, including a 74% from me. I considered it to be a step down for the franchise, but at least the new developer, Frontier Developments, didn’t simply rehash the original (which was the case for RollerCoaster Tycoon 2). They converted the game to 3D and made several other changes, and while some of those changes worked, others didn’t. The result was a game that looked better but played worse than the original.

Maybe I’m a bit more forgiving than my colleague, but I would have scored Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 in the low 8’s based on the strength of just how fun it is, despite some very strong and valid control issues. The first expansion for the game, Soaked! delivers more than just new features such as rides and scenarios, is also improves some of the gameplay.

At the heart of things, RCT3 remains the same, even with the addition of Soaked!. It's still about creating a park that the peeps (simulated park guests) will enjoy, hopefully losening their grips on their wallets and fattening yours. What Soaked! does is simply increase the number of things you can do, especially when dealing with water.

Dolle Waterpret is een must voor de fans van de reeks en van het genre. Niet omdat de concurrentie zo goed als afwezig blijft, maar omdat er zoveel te doen is, zoveel nieuws is en het weer net zo verslavend is zoals dat hoort voor een game als dit.

GameSpot (Jul 07, 2005)
Few games were as anticipated, or as mildly disappointing, last year than RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, the latest in the gargantuan mainstream hit series based on the simple idea that building theme parks can be an addictively fun and family-friendly affair. The first RollerCoaster Tycoon practically kick-started the entire Tycoon game genre by selling millions of copies, and so there were many fans eagerly awaiting the third game in the series and the big leap to 3D that it represented. And while RCT3 did deliver on the graphics, it stumbled a bit in terms of gameplay. It also felt like it was rushed out early, suffering from a myriad of bugs and other weird gameplay issues.

Basicamente, o objetivo de um pacote de expansão é prolongar a vida útil do game e, enxergando sob essa ótica, "Soaked!" cumpre sua missão com tranqüilidade, sem limitar-se ao péssimo status de "caça-níqueis", mas também não revolucionando em aspecto algum. Naturalmente, se você não gostou de "RollerCoaster Tycoon 3", não será "Soaked!" que mudará a sua opinião - a não ser que você seja fanático por atrações aquáticas.

Ich sage "ja" zu deutschem Wasser! Vor allem in meinen Freizeitparks. Denn meine Gäste stehen drauf und planschen, was das Zeug hält, während es in meiner Kasse klingelt. Allein wegen der cleveren Tunnelbauerei ist Soaked! seinen Preis wert.

But there is one Tycoon, just one, that rises far above the rest and is actually worth your money. The RollerCoaster series has taken over the legacy of Theme Park and has since improved upon the core formula to produce one of the finest management games to date. When I first got RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, I must admit that I was a bit skeptical. Even though my colleague had given it full marks, I couldn't help but be a bit wary of a game with 'Tycoon' in the title. Yet as I played, I was drawn in by everything about it; the addictive gameplay, gorgeous visuals and intuitive interface had me hooked within hours. Make no mistake, this is no ordinary Tycoon game.

GameSpy (Jul 14, 2005)
The first thing you'll notice in Soaked! is how much new stuff the game offers. New rides, rollercoasters, shops, paths (you can now make underwater pathways) and themes fill this expansion to the brim. It almost offers enough new stuff to be an entirely new game. There's even some product placement, with the inclusion of several Hershey's brand shops, rides, and pathway objects. New queues were noticeably lacking, however. Queue designs for the Atlantis and paradise themes would've been a welcome addition.

In the whole of the varied universe, no packaged software so quintessentially exemplifies the "expansion pack" as well as Soaked. It certainly does what it sets out to (i.e. expand on RollerCoaster Tycoon 3's solid core game). It does little more. That's okay, though, because the water-based offerings are fun, work well within the context of the original game, and offer some nicely quirky accessories to throw into your park.

I did have hours of fun playing this game, but the vast majority of it was due to the inherently entertaining nature of RCT 3 rather than anything Soaked adds to the mix. While it could breathe some new life into RollerCoaster Tycoon if your interest has been waning, it certainly isn't enough to revitalize the whole experience.

Game Chronicles (Aug 08, 2005)
In this first expansion, Roller Coaster Tycoon 3: Soaked! brings a whole new range of themes, rides, toys and tricks this expansion gives new life to a triquel that was received with lukewarm attention from fans and critics alike. Obviously focusing around water themes, Soaked! is more than an expansion pack; this welcome addition adds a lot of fixes to the oft-troublesome RCT3 and makes sense of customers and rides again.

I feel a little like Gollum in Lord of the Rings, crouching in a darkened cave and cursing that yellow circle that torments me so. Well... a Gollum with a broadband account and a fairly hefty PC, so a little better than that gangly CGI runt. I need water, desperately. Thankfully, Frontier Developments are here to help me out. Alas, it's an expansion pack for Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 rather than a tall glass of iced water. Damn them.

Expansion packs are, generally, a good thing. If you love a game, the option to come back to it with some new content can only be positive. Unless, of course, it’s an expansion pack for The Sims, in which case you’ll just keep paying through the nose for content that should have been included with the original release. It’s just a shame that most expansions stop at adding new content – why not revamp the interface, or make an effort to address criticisms of the original release? Soaked is guilty of this – it adds plenty of new content, but does nothing to address RollerCoaster Tycoon 3’s flaws.

Tout d'abord, permettons-nous un petit rappel sur ce qu'est Roller Coaster Tycoon 3. Il s'agit d'un jeu de gestion de parc d'attraction avec une attention toute particulière portée sur l'érection de montagnes russes (roller coaster en anglais des Etats-Unis). Il en va ainsi de certains jeux : on en vient à se demander comment ils peuvent avoir du succès avec de tels concepts. Pourtant, RCT en est à sa troisième version et cela suppose tout de même que le titre se vend bien. A tel point que les développeurs de Frontier en remettent une couche avec cet add-on (qui nécessite le jeu original) : Délires Aquatiques.

Ce premier add-on pour Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 (qui ne sera pas le dernier) n'apporte aucune amélioration notable du point de vue du moteur graphique ou du gameplay. Il se contente en fait d'enrichir encore un peu plus le contenu du jeu original en proposant de nouvelles attractions aquatiques, de nouveaux spectacles (orques, lasers, chorégraphies de jets d'eau...) et neuf nouveaux scénarios. C'est certes sympathique, mais on aurait bien aimé que l'IA des visiteurs soit améliorée et que l'interface soit clarifiée. Bref, cette extension est loin d'être indispensable et elle est à réserver aux accros.
