      Great game, where you run your very own theme park

      Have you ever dreamed of owning your own theme park?

      Well with Theme Park World you can own them all, you start of with a park, which you have to build: rides, shop, sideshows, roller coasters and more.

      You are in charge of staff, the research, all of the finance and you do all this using your PS and look over the park as you can see everyone using it and check on them to find out if they're happy and what they want.

      You also have to select the ticket price to make sure that customers will pay it and its getting you enough money to keep the park running.

      If you meet targets you collect golden tickets, which you can then use to open more parks (hence the name theme park 'World') you can also buy a camera to view and enjoy your parks as a customer would.

      This all may seam a little hard, but you have a little man, well his head anyway, who helps you and gives you hint, whilst telling you what the customers are thinking and saying about your park.

      I have found tho playing this game on PS2 I can not use my 8MB PS2 memory card, I have to put my old PS1 memory card in to use it, and it does take up 5 of the 15 block, but it's worth it.

      I would give this game to 5 years +

        Great way of buildin gyour very own theme park

        Well I'v just decided to get the PS2 out and play this game again, as I loved it so much. So I'm going to write about it as I play it.

        The graphics are cartoon, they are OK for what they need, but are not anything amazing.

        I have just started on my first park, and have the basics in there, being a ride, some shops and side shows.

        I have built things using the game, and it is all quite simple and easy to get on with. I hired staff aswel, to find me more attractions and also entertain the staff, fix things, and guard the park and also keep it clean, these do get payed out of your salary tho, which is all in Dollas $.

        You can also collect tickets, which allow you to buy more parks, and I have just got on for attractin over 100 guests to my park.

        I have just recieved another ticket, which I can save up to buy a camera, so I can see the park from a guests eyes.

        I have also just built my first roller coaster which was great fun.

        I am now reseaching new things all the time and making my park bigger and better.

        I would give this game to 6 year+

        Disadvantages

        Electronic Arts has a reputation for producing high quality games. They keep on living up to their reputation. Theme Park World is an excellent game with really emersive gameplay. The game features two modes, the 'Practice Park' to let people experience the thrill of running a Theme Park without having to pay the bills. The other mode is the main game, where the objective is to make successful Theme Parks. There are four main 'themes', Prehistoric, Halloween World, Space Zone and Wonderland. Between these there are three 'subparks', e.g. Space Zone: The Final Fronter. The main objective in any park is to complete three main goals, to attract a certain number of visitors to your park, to stay in business for a number of years and to make a certain amount of profit within an 12 month peroid. The actual figures start low but increase as you go through the game. When you complete your goals you earn 'gold tickets' which allow you to buy other parks and with four tickets, a virtual camera that allows you to explore your park and see what the rides are like. There are also 'floating tickets' which are awarded for completing a set of secret goals(e.g. having loads of security cameras, having lots of features, lots of toilets, lots of bins.) These function the same way as gold tickets. The main viewpoint is overhead but you can tell how the visitors like your park by looking at their thought bubbles. In order to make your park a huge success, it is necessary to employ people like guards, cleaners, entertainers, researchers and mechanics. I really enjoyed this game and would recommend it to anyone who dreams of owning their very own theme park.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Theme Park World is a highly addictive, strategic, niggly little game. You are the potential owner of many theme parks and surprisingly enough the aim of the game is to make money. Along with many other games which are based around creating your own mini civilisation(Hospitals, towns, the list is endless) the real delight in Theme Park world are the little details. There are many worlds to choose from - ranging in theme from Dinosaurs to the space age although you do not have automatic access. This access is obtained by gaining golden tickets, in a variety of ways - whether it be from making money or making sure the guards in the parks have enoug security cameras. Whilst in these worlds you can build rides, shops, interesting features(a personal favourite of my is the Mammoth Fountain), hire various workers and generally make sure things run smoothly. You have the option to research new items and to take out loans if things really don't go your way. The rides are probably the best part, although constructing rollercoasters can be very frustrating as unless you spend a lot of time tweaking the pylons, people are gonna find you ride boring. Probably the best feature of this game is when you make it 3d and get to go round the theme park yourself. Going on the rides is especially thrilling - particularly if you've done all the tweaking that I spoke of earlier! The only bad points is that this game can get a little repetitive - for example there are at least two worlds based around the theme of dinosaurs, and it can be a little frustrating too, as it can take a good while before you discover how to obtain 'hidden' golden tickets. Although I suppose if it was that easy no one would want to bother! Generally this is a really good game, with wonderful little graphics, best done in long bouts after periods of non-playing.

              • "Not got that certain something"

              *Background* Many people out there will be able to agree with me that theme park for the Super Nintendo (SNES) and Play Station (PSX) was flipping brilliant. The Graphics were Pants and the variety in rides was average, but something about the game just kept the people interested. Children everywhere frantically searched for the game in a vein attempt to buy a copy but it wasn’t to be as almost every shop in England had sold- out. In time everyone that wanted a copy managed to get one, and as the hype of the game fell, so did its ratings, and it gradually slipped away into the attics of homes everywhere. My personal view on why the game became so popular so quickly is because it was the first of its kind and was totally original. One of the first Strategy-simulation games on any console anywhere; it even beat the PC strategy games to the hot spot. *So, what about Theme Park World?* This was to be the second game in the trilogy which sparked of so many games like it, For instance “Roller Coaster Tycoon” and “Theme Park Inc”. Play Station put in a bid for the game and they got it, this was an unfortunate move as the game was a real let down. Sony decided to build a world wide marketing campaign and before they new it, the same hype which had made “Theme Park” such a success was back. Sony were thrilled and so were fans everywhere. For months the makers of the game “Bullfrog” let the fans stew and mouths began to water everywhere as each month people flocked to buy “Official UK Play Station Magazine” in hope that a release date had been set. * What a Disappointment* Yes well, the game was a massive let-down, All though the Graphics had improved the game-play just didn’t have that certain something which kept people addicted to the original game. Play Station by this time, had already made there money as had Bullfrog and so the consumers who had boug
              ht the game were left disappointed and angry, and lets face it, who can blame them, if you pay £45 quid for a game on release you expect it to be pretty good! * So what does the game offer?* Well, the game lets you walk around your park on video camera mode as you could on the original play station version. Only the unique difference between this and the Original is you can see the customers in your park on this view. You can also interact with the rides and games on this view, which the Play Stations original did not offer. Another advance on the original is the ability to ride the Coaster that you Build, Not just a general pre-made video-clip. The setting for the game is also very different, Going right back in time to the days of Crash Bandicoot, it is set out in a similar style, based on different islands. You must conquer each situation with a significant fanatical gain to be moved to the next stage. Gold tokens are awarded for different things such as winning sideshows which allow you to buy things such as the Video Camera. * Winning combination or a sorry sell-out?* Well, this time, I have to say it’s a sorry sell-out; rarely do I rate something badly as you will have seen with my previous reviews, but the game was just not good enough. I Know that all the features mentioned above make the game sound amazing, but Its just not. This was the same information that created the false hype in the first place. The Play Station has to be my favourite Console to date but this game just didn’t have what I deem to be enough oomph to meet the grade. Thanks for reading, and if you can leave a comment. Thanks again, *Exposure*

                Disadvantages

                While not stellar, the graphics in Theme Park Roller Coaster certainly get the job done. It runs at a solid clip, only lagging when there's a whole lot of things happening on the screen at the same time. The graphics are clean and cartoony, in a unique style that is solely Theme Park Roller Coaster. Along with the overhead viewpoint, you can press a button and actually walk around the theme parks that you build. Walking up to one of the many rides in the park often gives you the option to actually ride them, giving you yet another entertaining view of the action. It's not particularly gorgeous, but it's consistent and stylish in its own way. And you can never mistake the Hallowe'en land for any others. The music is almost nonexistent, but what's there fits the park that you're playing in. The prehistoric park's music is suitably tribal, the scary park is a little spooky, the fantasy park is light and airy, and so on. It's nothing you'll remember, or even really notice unless you're paying close attention, but it's certainly there. The sound effects are nice, although I would have liked a few more. You can hear a lot of the things that the kids are doing in your theme park, from riding the coasters to the sounds of the games, but it never gets to the aureal level of, say, Rollercoaster Tycoon. TPRC does sport voice acting, in the form of an advisor . . . ant-thing . . . that shows you the ropes of the game and then informs you when anything important is happening. He'll keep you up with incidences of too many employees, break-downs in the rides, and the occasional stinkbomb Theme Park Roller Coaster is classic God Game material. You are the overlord of a series of theme parks, and you've got to bring them to maturity by building rides, attractions, roller coasters, and other necessities to make the park-goers happy. And while not as deep or enthralling as Rollercoaster Tycoon, it's an enjoyable little
                game. You start off with access to one park, a prehistoric-themed one. By completing certain goals told to you at the beginning of the game -- getting a certain number of park-goers, making a certain amount of money, and lasting a certain amount of time -- you get Golden Tickets. You use Golden Tickets to open up new parks to test your mettle in. Of course, as you buy tickets, the parks get more difficult to keep going. The core gameplay consists of building rides, attractions, sideshows and whatnot, making sure there are paths to get to the rides and get out of them, and then micromanaging whenever anything bad happens. This is helped by an excellent game interface, along with a "Laptop" that you can pop open at any time to get any information you need. As you place rides, shops, and everything else, you have to worry about both location and value. Some shops are too far out of the way to ever get used, whereas others are hammered like crazy and overrun. And building the various rides with their lines is an art as well. Fortunately, the line-creation mechanism is somewhat simpler than the same thing in Rollercoaster Tycoon, which is a plus. The amount of tweaking is roughly the same. You can alter everything from the amount of salt on the fries and fat in the burgers to the duration of the rides and cost of entering the park. Careful management of these values can be the difference between making a bundle and losing vast amounts of money, so prepare to be clicking on lots of things and keeping it all under control. Theme Park Roller Coaster is the only God Game I know of on the PS2, and it's a fine one. While it's not quite as involving as its cousin Rollercoaster Tycoon, it's a very enjoyable title. Any fan of the genre would do well to pick this up, and those who like to sit for thirty minutes at a time and feel a sense of accomplishment in their gaming would do well to get Theme Park Roller Coaster as well. Cute gra
                phics, solid sound, and good entertainment conspire to make a fun experience.7/10

                  Disadvantages

                  Theme Park World - PSX If you've ever been to a theme park, ridden the rides, bought the candy floss, burgers and chips then thrown the whole lot up on the journey back home, then this is the game for you. Providing you've got fond memories and washed the stains out afterwards. Theme Park World is the sequel to the age old favourite Theme Park. The idea is simple: build a theme park and please the kids, but in order to really make your park a success you've got to make money. Lots. Money allows you to build bigger and better rides. You also need to make sure park guests are getting exactly what they paid for. Keep the park clean, the prices reasonable and make sure everybody has fun, you included. Like most strategy games, the first steps are simple. Here you must lay down the groundwork, literally, that will allow your guests to walk around the park. Building a path is a simple point and drag affair. Making sure there's space is now important, as is watching the monetary figure in the corner of the screen as it decreases as your paving network expands. From here it's time to select a ride. Where you place your ride is important. You need to leave space to build an entrance, plus make sure people in the park can actually see it. The selection of rides at the start of the game is limited. You need to pump money into research to get new ones, but by the time you've got to grips with the controls, new rides will be appearing thick and fast. Small rides and attractions are ready made but you get more fun out of the bigger rides. Roller coasters, the log flume and go-kart tracks require a little extra planning as you can decide on the layout of the track. This is constructed like a train set with small sections added once you've determined the direction and gradient you want. It's also important to add banking on curved sections as this adds to the speed and intensity of the ride
                  . Once you've completed the track you can try your creation from the best seat, by witnessing the ride from the front carriage. By doing this you can determine whether the ride will be a success of not, as it allows you to judge if the ride is the correct speed and a suitable distance. Besides the rides, to make your park a success you'll need to employ some staff. Entertainers, mechanics, security guards and researchers are all vital. The most important, however, are the cleaners; after all, without them your park could become encrusted in the vomit of your beloved playing public. Game points aside, there's a bit of a problem with Theme Park World and it involves the graphics. The way the rides vibrate when the cursor is resting on them can make you feel quite nauseous. Rides move with too few frames of animation, resulting in a park that appears to stop and start every few seconds. Finally there is a small side effect that is similar to cross-hatching on a pencil drawing, that occurs when you move the pointer. This makes looking at the screen a quite horrific experience that can hurt your eyes and make you feel like you're about to vomit. I kid you not. Sadly, these problems with the 3D graphics could have been easily avoided if the charming isometric view of the original was used instead. It was a lot easier to see your park with the original system anyway. Ultimately, Theme Park World is a sequel that offers new features over the original, but they're not necessarily beneficial to the playing experience. If you want a better game, go buy the original. It plays better and won't make you feel sick. Advantages: Make lots of money and build new rides Ride the rides and prepare to vomit Lots of mini games to play Disadvantages: It'll make you feel sick Gameplay is too repetitive Too much green all over the place My Rating: Graphics

                    I own both theme park and theme hospital, so after playing them over and over I decided to try theme park world. It is a better version of theme park. You start off with keys which you can use to enter two of the four parks. These two parks are lost kingdom and halloween world. When you enter these two worlds you can buy various rides and shops aswell as side attractions and features. As you build up the parks you recieve golden tickets for getting lots of people into the park which you can use to buy mystery rides or save up to get keys which will let you into the other two parks. There is a lot to do when building your parks, you can take out loans, hire and train staff aswell as many other things to do. I love playing this game and find it much more interesting than the other two. The graphics are exellent and are much much better than the others graphics. The manual is very good becasue it explains everything you need to know clearly. It is an enjoyable game and is worth playing whatever age you are.

                      Disadvantages

                      Theme Park World is an excellent game. There are far more rides than on the previous version and far more staff, features and shops. Although the welsh bloke who keeps popping up can be quite friendly , when you are in the midst of a staff crisis and desperately trying to sort it out he will pop up and say "Some of your staff are getting annoyed at you and considering going on strike", this is when all of your staff are marching around outside. The graphics are far more advanced than in the previous version and there is a new incredible ability. The ability to ride on the rides as you have built them. If you build a rollercoaster then you ride that rollercoaster not one that the computer has made. Also when you are on the rides you can look at the rest of your park. everything is in the the exact place you have placed it. Also instead of just riding the rides you can walk around your park. The best part of this version is though it is nowhere near as hard. It annoyed me on the first version that the only way you could earn was to have a complex understanding of business.

                        this game is rubbish i got it for a gift by my friend and i installed it on my computer, one thing that it didnt actually get on the game because it made my computer crash so i uninstalled it. i tried it on my brother's computer and it went really slowy, i'm takin every few secs it would move and it stuttered. so i never play on it now but it might work better on a faster computer but that doesn't make sense because my computer is faster, better more gb and every thing but it worked on his better but not much better. the game any way isnt that good because it is like rollar coaster tycoon but that game i better.it like rollar coaster tycoon but it is harder to play and it has wierd controls so you dont know what to press to do something infact my brother just told me that it stutters on everyone's computer that he tried and that was alot it isn't a good game dont get it if you are thinking of get rollar coaster tycoon it is alot better

                          Theme Park World is the follow up to Theme Park so I believe and what a follow up it is! The aim of Theme Park is to build and run a themepark and keep your visitors happy. Sounds easy doesn’t it! Well it isn’t all that hard, but you do get busy and theres ore to the game than just building new rides and riding them! THE GAME: As I have already said, the aim of the game is to build and run a successful theme park, but you need a budget to do this with surely. Yes you do, and you start off with $50,000. You also start off with 2-3 rides and 2 shops and a range of other features to start your park with. If you want more ,you’ll have to et your research staff to research new rides etc. You will also be given 5 different types of staff to help you run your theme park efficiently. Mechanics – They will repair and upgrade your rides. Yes, your rides do break down just like real theme parks and having broken down rides doesn’t encourage people to come and visit your park, therefore, less money! Cleaners – Your running a theme park right, you’ve got scary rides and kids riding your scary rides, so who’s going to clean that sick up off the floor? You don’t want people slipping up in it surely, plus, theres those toilets that haven’t been cleaned for weeks, do you want to make everyone ill? You get the idea, you need cleaners to keep your park looking and smelling nice! Researchers – Now, you are only given 2 rides at the start and you can’t run an excellent theme park with 2 clapped out rides and a couple of shops so you need to research new ideas for rides and shops, amongst other things such as sideshows. This is where your researchers come into the game. Researchers also seem to be the most awkward and expensive staff to hire, so look after them! Guards – Kids these days eh, they’ll ruin anything. You need guards to look after your park oth
                          erwise you’ll be getting shoplifters in your shops and vandals wrecking your rides. Also, remember to stick the security cameras around the park to give your guards a pair of extra eyes! Entertainers – We all know what entertainers are and we’ve all stood in a long queue waiting to get to the front. Now, wouldn’t it be nice to laugh at some foolish person in a suit dancing around in front of you while your waiting in the long queue. Well, that’s basically what entertainers are, they will entertain your guests while they are waiting to get onto that new ride you’ve just invested in. Staff will also need training to make them more efficient. You could pay 4 cleaners to clean your park, or you could train 2 cleaners fully to clean your park. I think the best solution would be for 2 cleaners as it reduces your costs! The aim of the game is to basically acquire gold tickets. You do this by completing different tasks set on that level (like getting 150 people to visit your park). Gold tickets are like passes to other parts of the theme park world. In other words, gold tickets will give you access to different levels and different worlds (hence the name theme park world) These different worlds will have different landscapes and also different rides and shops so it adds that bit of excitement to the game when you know there are brand new rides out there waiting for you to build! You can also win gold tickets by playing your own sideshow games that you have built. Now, let me explain this a bit better. In Theme Park World, you can walk around your own creation using camera mode. Basically this sets you at the height of your little visitors and enables you to actually walk around your park and ride the rides. This is an excellent feature of the game. Theres nothing like building yourself a rollercoaster then going and riding it. What’s more, you’ll see how your park looks to the visitors ins
                          tead of up there in god mode! Now, back to the gold tickets, you win them by actually playing your sideshows (basically like the coconut shy’s you see in fairs). This is another excellent feature of the game, actually playing your own games that you’ve built….anyway, I think I’ve got a bit over excited now!! Another good, but rather annoying feature in the game is the advisor. If you have played Theme Park you will know what I’m on about. This advisor is different though, he is always popping up and telling you what the customers think and also giving you tips to improve your park. Now, don’t get me wrong, he’s a very useful little man, but he does get on your nerves a bit when he keeps saying the same things over and over again! A very nice touch about the advisor is the way his voice change like when you go onto the lost world park, his voice will change to resemble Richard Attenboroughs voice. CONTROLS: The controls on the playstation game are extremely easy to use. In the top right hand corner of your TV you will always have a picture which resembles the four buttons on your playstation game pad. These buttons will have what the buttons actually do on them, so its always easy to see which button to press to do what you want to do. These buttons will change from time to time depending on what screen you are on. A very easy, but extremely useful part of the game. GRAPHICS: Something I havent mentioned about the game yet is the way it looks. Theme Park World is all set out in nice 3D with a cartoon feel to it. The graphics are not the smoothest I have seen on the playstation but are very detailed and if you think about the different ways you can view the graphics (you can rotate the map, use the camcorder mode) then you will realise that it would be practically impossible to make the graphics look any better. One thing I have noticed about the graphics is how the game seems to s
                          low down a bit when the graphics become more intense (more people in your park, more rides etc). However, it doesn’t slow down so much that it gets annoying, or it hasn’t to me yet anyway! SOUND: The sound in the game is all very realistic. However, its not something that I have really noticed all that much to be honest, so it can’t stand out too much. However, the sounds are true to whatever is in your park i.e. some rides will have different sounds to other etc. I suppose the music could have been better as it does get a bit annoying after a while, then again, they can only fit so much data onto one disc! One sound you will here a lot is the sound of the Advisor. His voice is excellent. It is normally a Scottish accent, but as I have said previously, it will change according to the different worlds you are in. OVERALL: This is a very good game. A lot of people seem to compare it to Rollercoaster Tycoon, but having only played the demo of Rollercoaster Tycoon on the PC I can’t really comment on which is the best, however, after reading other people comments and opinions on the subject, RCT does seem to come out tops. But anyway, overall this is a very good follow up to Theme Park and it does have a lot of replay value. The only problem I can see myself having is getting bored of the available rides once I have built them all in every park, but that’s the same with every simulation game. I picked the game up for £10 and it was definitely worth that. The manual that comes with the game could have been more helpful. For example, I was looking to see what effect putting more salt on my fries would have but the book failed to tell me this so I’m left to figure it out for myself. Theres a lot of small things like that that will have you wondering but the manual won’t tell you but I suppose we can’t have it all can we! A very good sim game. If you liked Theme P
                          ark or like general Sim/god games, then you should like Theme Park World and for £10 it’s a steal!!

                            Advantages

                            Disadvantages

                            When I first heard that another theme park game was coming out, I thought it would never be as good as the original, and so I never bought it. But when I found out it was only £10, I couldn't not buy it. At first, the intro FMV sequence was average, but I have to admit, this is one of the most addictive games ever. To be able to ride on your own rides, you have to earn four gold tickets, which can be earned within 2 levels. Not only can you go on the rides, but you can play some of the other sideshows, like puzzles and races, to earn more tickets. It also costs tickets to be able to build other parks elsewhere, but you cannot have any more than 3 parks open at any one time. My main concern about the game is the immensly annoying 'helper' at the bottom of the screen. He always says the same things, and the hidden playable features seem non-existent. I also think that there are too many features and important controllable options for the PS to handle, but still a fun game.

                            I was looking around the dooyoo site for what I could write my next opinion on. I decided to look at the Playstation section and some of the games, which I had. I cam across theme park world and found that only two people had written ops. I have to say those ops were to short and not very helpful. I decided I would try to help the people who want to buy this game so here goes. I brought Theme Park World (TPW) about five days after it first came out. I had read the preview before it came out; it looked and sounded amazing. I paid £30 for it, which was not too bad. I love to play strategy games like this one. I have theme hospital and the Sims both on pc, which I love. The plot of theme park world is that you have to build a theme park. You have choose all the rides, sideshows place toilets ands shops. You must higher cleaners to clean your park and other people to help you on your journey to building the best theme park in the world (or in the game). To help you on your way is a little Scottish person in the corner of the screen with a head like a ball. He can get annoying when he repeats things over and over again, but to beginners he really does help. The controls are incredibly easy to pick as they are on the screen when you are building your theme park. Altogether there are seven parks, which you can play and you have to unlock six of them. At the beginning, you can also choose quick start where the only thing you have to worry about is building the rides, which gives you an idea of how to play the game. The first thing you have to do before you can open your park is to build some rides. The best thing to do is to leave lots of space at the back of the park for the bigger rides. Position your rides in a sensible place with paths connecting the entrances and exits of each ride. Make sure you have lots of food and drink shops they can earn you quite a bit of money. These are important so that the visi
                            tors don’t starve and end up leaving your park. In addition, position toilets near the exit to a ride especially roller coasters, as the kids will probably need it. Higher cleaners so that the park and toilets stay clean, scientists so you can research new rides, entertainers so they entertain the kids, handy men to fix the rides, and security guards to keep out all the trouble makers. Remember when building your park that the visitors will always go to the best ride so make sure they pass lots of shops and rides on their way. The sideshows can make you quite a lot of money so make sure you have these positioned in the right place of your park. Make sure you have a staff room so that your staff can rest and that will stop them going on strike. The new thing that TPW brings into this game is the camcorder mode. You get a camcorder and you can travel at the same level as the visitors and have a go on the rides. Although while in camcorder mode the graphics aren’t brilliant, it is still fun to walk around the park. Some rides you can actually play properly e.g. dino karts, you get to ride round using the controller. You can also play the sideshows, which are great fun as well. You need 4 golden tickets to get the camcorder. To get golden tickets you must do certain things in the park. At the start when you open your park, it will tell you the three main objectives to complete to get 3 golden tickets (1 for each completed). You can also get tickets for other things e.g. 90% of the park covered with security cameras. You can use the golden tickets to unlock the next park, which will give you different rides and other things and a completely new theme. I love this game and I am always playing it. The graphics may not be brilliant but I find them perfectly playable. It looks a lot better on pc and probably even better than pc on Playstation 2. Therefore, if you want to play this game on Playstation then I
                            recommend it, it is very fun to play especially if you have time to waste. Hope this helps you. :O)
