Weak

Path creation is a complete hassle!

I am a huge fan of the RCT series, so when the 3DS version was announced, I was ecstatic. Then when the release date was pushed back a few times I thought it was to make the game even better. Sadly, they should have pushed the release even farther back.

The path builder is by far one of the worst features in the game. If you build a ride that starts above ground, it is improbable that you will find a way to connect your pathways to the entrance/exit of your ride. I spent three hours NOT connecting my paths to a ride that was only 3-4 squares high.

Another thing that really bothered me was that the 3D effect felt rushed and unrefined leaving me with a headache and a bad taste in my mouth, figuratively speaking

Best part of the game:
-Same basic premise of every RCT game

Worst part of the game:
-Path building system

Final say:
If you are a big RCT fan, then this is good for at least a rental, if not a purchase since it's so cheap. But, if you have never tried the series before find a different RCT to try so that you get the true experience instead of this severely watered down version.

I was a HUGE fan of Roller Coaster Tycoon as a kid, but this is definitely going down on the top 10 worst games I've ever played. I feel the game is rather disorganized, much too many limitations, and the challenges are boring. The coaster building is dreadful, and that used to be my favorite thing about the game, well that and launching my visitors through the air on unfinished coasters. Simply put, this game was a WASTE of time. Stick to the computer versions, this is embarrassing for Atari.

You can only build custom roller coasters, no pre-loaded coasters. The graphics aren't very good and the 3D is terrible. I probably wouldn't recommend this game at all.
