This was my favourite game of the series as the graphics were better and more additions to the game which gave it the Gold Edition nametag.
In my opinion the graphics are the best in the series of Rollercoaster Tycoon. The grass looks like grass and there are no jagged edges on the rides. The game can also be seen in a 3D layout as well as your normal top down view.
In gameplay you can hear the guests laughing, crying and often being sick. The quality of the sound effects is excellent and makes it very realistic.
I tend to use the keyboard and mouse during gameplay as this is the easiest option. Once you know were everything is and what screens you need to go to then you will be ok.
The game has many wonderful types of rides, shops, wonders and weather patterns during gameplay and maximises the amount of fun you have. For example the sunsets on the game are absolutely breathtaking and you can design your own park to match a there like Haunted or Sci-Fi.
There is one error which is that sometimes the game may crash if you enlarge your park to a certain extent then the game crashes and can be quite frustrating.
