Rollercoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum! is probably the most deep and complex theme park simulator ever conceived. At the same time it is surprisingly fun and accessible. You will build, manage, and even experience all of the elements that make for a world-class theme park.
Endless possibilities await. You can create your own roller coasters: from gentle flume rides to heart-chilling, gut-busting wild mouse rides that fling you around like dice in a cup. Then add other rides, food stands, and amenities to create the ultimate magical experience for your guests.
Building fun stuff is not the only thing you will do in Rollercoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum! Your theme park needs proper management: you will hire people, juggle incomes and expenses and, most importantly, keep your visitors happy.
Customisation is a big thing in Rollercoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum! Not only you can create your own rollercoasters, you can also set up scenic routes and even make your own firework and laser shows.

I played RCT 1 and 2, but by the time 3 game out, I had changed my game interest (Sims, Sims 2, and WoW). This one slid by me, and after playing the demo today, I immediately decided to buy the game. How did I miss the 3D version of one of my all time favorites. So far, I'm having lots of fun with it... so I don't understand the negative stars. Then, I saw the reasoning... peopleread more are rating the game for its PRICE and not its CONTENT... You folks almost made me not buy the game and for that, I say shame on you.
Initially, I agreed with you all- $19.99 for an older game? What is GoG thinking?! Then, I looked around...
Amazon- $19.99 for the NEW game- not used- not someone auctioning it from their own house... NEW.
and the best...
For everyone complaining about the price- do your homework. Search around. GoG actually has it at a reasonable price point. Review the game for what it is, not because you think it should cost less.

The quality of the game is in no doubt, you can have hours of fun just building rides and then going on them yourself, but $20? I'm still trying to decide if I would buy it on a 50% off sale!

This is a really really great game and retains a lot of the micro-management of the original game, while bringing it all into 3D. The game has loads of things to do, scenario editors, sandbox mode, coaster designer and loads of genuinely fun missions and all packed full of loads of rides, shops and activities. There is a lot of game here. I'd question the price point for a gameread more that is 6 years old and think $14.99 would have been more appropriate.
There is only one failing to the game in my view, but it is a rather spectacular flaw. The AI does not respond well to mega park designs. In my experience of having produced a number of large parks in this game, I'll quickly find that nobody actually goes on my rides :( They are good rides, but the AI gets confused and over-whelmed with decisions and will often spend hours walking back and forth between food attractions or just wandering around aimlessly, only having paid for 1 or 2 rides. It's still possible to make money in this scenario, but a lot of the joy of seeing people queuing to get on your rides is lost. This won't effect the scenario missions to any noticeable degree in my experience but on custom, Mega sized parks it becomes very obvious once you get to 1300+ visitors. The economy is also a little relaxed from the first game, making it easier overall to make money but that doesn't detract too much from the challenge.
