Now you can build theme parks around the world!



Chris Sawyer really did kick up the imagination for this one, his latest new expansion pack, Wacky Worlds. Imagine building roller coasters around the Eiffel Tower, the Great Wall of China, and in the Antarctic. Well that's exactly what you do in the game.

He really didn't add anything new except for the new scenery and scenarios because the ride tracks and design weren't changed only the scenery was. Sorry guys nothing new with the graphics. frown The main new features he added in the expansion pack were the 17 new scenarios, new world scenery, and new ride scenery. The guests really love the new scenery, every time they walk into your park they'll say, "Great Scenery!"

The game's scenarios are very accurate and beautifully designed despite the graphics. The Maharaja Palace especially is one of the most beautiful scenarios you will ever see. The one thing that stinks is that you can't use Africa scenery in America and Europe scenery in Asia and so forth. The game's focus is on the 7 main continents with about 3 scenarios each for every continent except for Antarctica.

The game's replay value is very very good, since with Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 you can make your own scenarios, you can also download other scenarios that other people have made through {href}www.rctspace.com RCT Space{href} and other user friendly sites. The price for the game isn't too bad. I got mine for 19.99 with Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 at Wal-Mart, other than that the game by itself is about 19.99 without Rollercoaster Tycoon 2.

For a Rollercoaster Tycoon fan this is a must buy game. It will really add more years of fun ride making and scenario designing that will keep a person busy for a while. smile
