The game starts out in choosing your character. From a five year-old girl/boy - 16 year-old girl/boy. I did like that I could change my clothes and look a bit; but as the game begins you are put in charge of a theme park -blink- what idiot puts a child or teen in charge of running a theme park? This premise is ridiculous.

The game is extremely restricting. There's only small patches of spaces that allow you to build restrooms, food , drink and game stands to let your public relieve themselves, find some lunch, quench their thirst & play some games. The last 3 items bring in the revenue that lets you build the rides. I never found myself close to running out of money.

The game also restricts w/the power supply. While a good idea, just poor implementation. Power can get used up quickly. I had enough for one roller coaster a small carnival ride, one rest room, game stand & the drink & food stand. That was it, power was gone.

Don't forget you also have to make friends w/park visitors them, challenge them to races & games. Ask about the park & improvements - you also have to hire and do training of janitors & the "cheerleaders"? I didn't see the point to having cheerleaders, but the training part was quite fun - hard to pick up, but fun. The janitor's training was a lot harder but it was fun to suck up whatever that mush was maybe Bigfoot yellow snot? I dunno. You also have to play all the games & ride all the rides. Sure that's fun, but tedious.

My suggestions - kip this title & go for Roller coaster Tycoon or find a copy of Theme Park. You will get a lot more pleasure out of them than you will here. I found this aggravating & restricting - something RCT don't have & it's why it stands above the rest. -sigh- ashame really, I think it could have been a good title if they had gone the RCT route more.

The game was decent. It didn't take too long too beat, and was in no way difficult. The mini games are fun for a bit, but then they get boring, and to beat certain missions, you have to play them, so it becomes a bit monotone. Overall though, I did enjoy the game, but finished all the missions in a day.
