Not only will you be having fun, but you'll also build financial strategies by deciding what is most cost effective to build and you'll learn about the physics of building rollercoasters.
Experience the heart-pumping thrills of whipping around intense rollercoasters, splashing down water slides and going on safaris with wild animals now all in one place in Rollercoaster Tycoon 3 Platinum!
The original RollerCoaster Tycoon which came out in 1999 was received as one of the best games, let alone simulation games, of the decade. Naturally with that hype, sequels of the original are much anticipated and have huge expectations.
RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum (RCT 3) will not let you down. This sequel is action packed and much improved. The graphics are phenomenal, the tutorial is more helpful, the water park feature will win you over, and the overall gameplay and quality is much better. RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 lives up to the hype and is one of the best simulation games on the market.
You begin the game by choosing between several game modes and game playing options. You can choose either the “sandbox” mode, which will allow you to create any kind of park you want, the “career” mode, which is a series of challenges, or you can elect to build custom coasters and buildings. In sandbox mode money is no option so you can build and design whatever you want regardless of price. This allows you to create parks even the game developers could not fathom.
The next mode, career, is a scenario mode that requires you to turn down-and-out parks into successful enterprises. This is similar to other simulation objective modes in that you are given a certain amount of money and a list of tasks. It becomes your job to use the money wisely and build a park, accomplishing each scenario's objectives.
The third mode allows you to build custom coasters, fireworks shows, and buildings that can later be imported into each scenario or free play park. This mode gives you the time and opportunity to make coasters without feeling rushed or under the gun, like in the career option.
This game stays true to its roots when it comes to gameplay and game mechanics. As a park owner you are in complete control. You can set your parks prices, build rides, hire your own staff, and advertise your park. Like its predecessor you have control of every aspect of the park, however, the controls are easier to use and the graphics and overall enjoyment is much greater. New features of this game that are not in the previous versions are the addition of the water park element as well as the addition of the fireworks show. The fireworks show is especially cool because in it you are able to create vivid light shows accompanied by music of your liking, which can be imported from your computer. This allows you to create shows to your favorite songs or mixes.
The graphics are superb and much improved in this sequel. The colors are vivid and the level of detail is impressive. An example of this can be seen with the pools or water in your parks. If you are to click on the water you will see ripples and contrasting shadows. This detail is lifelike and the graphics of this game are some of the best you will come across. The inclusion of the two expansion packs, “soaked” and “wild” is another great perk of this game. These will add to your enjoyment and provide you with hours and hours of added excitement.
The only obvious drawback of this game was with adding rides. If ride building is not your specialty, adding coasters to your park can be difficult because there are less “stock” coasters. This requires you to build rides, and though the coaster building is much improved from previous versions, it can still be difficult. If more stock options were available this game would be more playable for a larger group of people.
Overall, this game is simply great. RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 is easy to play and the graphics are phenomenal. The new features like the fireworks show builder as well as the water parks are perfect additions to the original version—not departing too far from what makes the game great. Also, the expansion pack additions of “soaked” and “wild” make your investment in this game worth a lot more. The benefits of RCT 3 outweigh the slight difficulty you might face when trying to add pre-built roller coasters.
This is one of, if not the best business simulation game on the market and it comes highly recommended. No matter your age or interest in simulation games you will find something about this game that you love.

I really like roller coaster games. I’ve played many, including all of the RCT games. RCT 3 is one of my favorites. When I was younger, I spent hours just making random designs of coasters and parks that make no sense. I loved having unlimited money, and I have to say that the con they said “Not many pre-loaded coasters” was not a con for me at all. That’s where the fun is! You can literally make any kind of roller coaster! I only got slightly mad when the interface didn’t work very well, I would like it to be more smooth and well designed. Anyways, I think you should buy this game now!
It's just epic!,

Personally, this is my absolute favorite game! It’s really easy to play and to make rollercoasters which makes it suitable for anyone! It is very epic and it should have the title of best game of the year. Unlike puzzle games like Portal 2, this is totally customizable.

The addition of sandbox mode is what really brought this game to life for me. If you like to make and manage then you’re in for a treat. The ride camera was a great idea, and the graphics on things such as the sky and lakes are so beautiful that I often stop what I’m doing to stare at them. What a fantastic game!

Roller Cosater Tycoon 3 Platinum is a very good game to play on your free time, this game is easy to play and quick to get the hang of it!
Jun 5, 2011
Roller coaster tycoon 3 is the best! You can create any roller coasters you want! Also with the platinum, you can build water slides and even make a zoo! If you don’t feel like making your own coasters, you can also load some from the huge selection of roller coasters! But that’s not all! You also run a business and make shops, signs, attractions, etc. In the game, peeps come to your park! In career mode, you get a park, and have to get peeps, make awesome roller coasters, please VIP guests, and make lots of money! You should buy this game. (Also, if you don’t want the water slides or animals, download the regular RCT3)

This game is very fun, with combination of rides, pools, and just fun pointless objects. If you ever dreamed of making your own theme park, your dream is answered, with different style’s like, western or a candy land paradise. Ive played lots of games, similar to this in the whole theme park idea, but this game was the easiest to fall in love with and to understand how to make your park.Its an easy game to install, and it is very clear and vibrant. It also has a bunch of extra stuff you can do like ride your own rides! This game is worth every penny and I would strongly support getting it.
PS. ( try not to get addicted)
best roller tyc game,
