      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Could have been more meaty

      The original Rollercoaster Tycoon was such a fun and exciting game when it was released, and has since had many sequels and expansion packs, one of the better of which is Loopy Landscapes, a game that adds quite a lot to the sim experience although would definitely have benefitted from having even more to justify its cost. Visually, the game, like most expansion packs, does absolutely nothing to enhance the original game, and so it's difficult to praise it in this regard. Nevertheless, for its original price-tag of £20, people weren't going to be expecting a huge overhaul, and so it is mostly forgivable. The game does, though, add some hilarious animations that the game originally lacked, such as character expressions when they are riding a rollercoaster being amusingly exaggerated and cartoon-like. Also, the sound effects have been amped up, and given how this pack focuses on expanding rollercoasters, it's just as well that there are some wonderfully sonic sounds as the coasters whizz along. The soundtrack is quite similar to before although a few tunes have been added. While I am sceptical of expansions in general, this one does add quite a bit of content; there are far more coasters now, and also a bunch more themes have been added, meaning that the general aesthetic of the game has been enhanced quite a lot. The game also introduces a balancing act, that while it is easy to spend money on a huge coaster, it is also easy to overlook the safety, and so you have to make sure not to get too overzealous and allow them to crash, which will severely hurt the rep of your theme park. If there's anything to criticise, it's that not enough has been done to overhaul the game's little niggles and faults. Loopy Landscapes adds some new scenarios, but they can be beaten very easily and become repetitive after a while. Still, given how cheap it is now, it will certainly please RC fanatics.

        Disadvantages

        This is the third expansion pack,to the original and already brilliant game,Rollercoaster Tycoon. What is it about? You construct and manage a theme park. You decide: *The theme of the park *Where the rides go *What rides to have *What shops to have *What music is played *The price of the rides *The price of the entrance fee *The price of the food *How many staff you need *What soveniers to sell This game will test your management skills,as you must keep your guests and your staff happy. There are 30 new scenarios,with this expansion pack. There is a guest,a time and a finance criteria to be met,on each scenario.When you have done this another becomes available. There is a vast selection of rides to choose from.Included in these are: *Wooden rollercoasters *Water rides *River rafting *Swan boats *Air powered vertical drop rollercoasters *3D cinema screens As well as all the original rides from the first game. There are also new landscapes for you to construct your masterpiece in.These include: *Jurrassic *Jungle *Winter wonderlands *Space *Medieval *Urban *Pagoda Can you remember the entertainment staff,that walk around in costumes?There are also more for them to wear.You can now have *Knights *Astronaughts *Snowmen *Gorillas *Romans Aswell as the three from the first game.(Panda,Tiger and Elephant) New shops are available aswell.These can be great little money earners,if the prices are right.You can now sell: *Hats *T-Shirts *balloons You can decide the colour of these. *Soft toys *Maps *Coffee *Fried chicken *Sea food Aswell as the burgers,chips,icecream,candy floss and cold drinks that were in the original. I found it was a nice touch,that you can now change the colours of your products.It great to see these little things are thought about. Things can happen in your theme park though.You could experience: *Vadalism *litter problems *Death of the guests All of these things will affect the rating of your park. So keep a close eye. The graphics in this game are really good. The scenery looks like scenery.The detail to the rides is very realistic. So are the facial expressions of your guests. I like the little things like: *Seeing your guests be sick *Seeing vandalised lights and benches *Seeing the expressions on guests faces as they wait to go on a ride *Lots of colour Chris Sawyer, has produced a cracking game, for kids of all ages. He hasn't skimped on anything. It is a well made game, with no flaws. There is also a web site called www.rollercoastertycoon.com I found this useful. If you wanted you can download a trainer file. This will help with the running of the game, if you wanted.It is called the TRG trainer pack.

          Advantages

          Disadvantages

          I am already addicted to rollercoaster tycoon + added attraction but loopy landscapes is even more of a challenge its alot harder. Loopy landscapes includes real parks like Blackpool pleasure beach and Alton towers which has challenge's to them. The new loopy landscapes have ice and volcanoe's to name a few and trying to complete them is not a piece of cake like the fist two. Some of the tasks have half built rides which you have to finish with a high level of excitement and you can't demolish them. Some of the parks are very small and it all gets abit crowded. The parks that you can work on are displayed differently than in the other packs this makes it easier to navigate. They have introduced other stalls like coffee shops and you have the option to set the prices across the park so you dont have to go back and check what price you were selling an item at in the other stalls. You can also now put covers over waiting lines to keep them dry. This is well worth buying if you have the other 2 packs. Even if you have the first pack only the new loopy landscapes has the added attractions pack built in so dont buy that one thinking you need it. The prices for this add on are around £12 which is very reasonable.

          Roller Coaster Tycoon was missing something, now I know what an expansion is! The people can prefer a ride, new rides and new footpaths. If you have RCT you HAVE to get this. Theres nothing like it. It the ultimate ride.Oh yes this isn't one of those money taking crappy games. This is an art. It has some great new rides and add ons from the old one. A moment playing this is not wasted.:)The original roller coaster tycoon is a great game but it gets boring, you always have to build the same rides, all you do is pick up barf, but loopy landscapes kicks @$$. You are never bored because it has more rides, more food stands, and the people can even prefer their favourite ride. In all it's a great game.

            Advantages

            Disadvantages

            Rollercoaster Tycoon Loopy Landscapes This is the third instalment of the thrilling game created by the genius Chris Sawyer. It is still as realistic and as fun as the first one, which came out at least two years ago. The game is about building a top class theme park in a set conditions and you have to keep people happy otherwise you could go bankrupt. This management is a very addictive game and can keep you occupied for hours on end. This realistic game includes not only fun rides from there own tracks and make your own it also include the setting of ride music, ride ticket prices, prices to enter your park, placing shops and basically you have full control and you how it is run. There are still the old rides from the other two games from the original Rollercoaster and the added attractions like the good old wooden rollercoaster, Ghost house and the boat ride, But many more have been added to spice the game up and give your “peeps” the ride of there lives. These include the Enterprise, wooden side – friction rollercoaster, Suspended looping rollercoaster, flying rollercoaster, air powered vertical coaster, Virginia reel and many, many more roller coasters. There are also a couple of water rides added in to give rides a better atmosphere like the brand new water coaster where rollercoaster meets a water ride and there is also the jet skis, raft ride and the river ride which if the use of themes can set a high excitement rating for your ride. There are also many new shops to earn extra money in your theme park which include: T – shirt stall, doughnut stall, fried chicken stall, sea food stall, coffee shop and a lemonade stall to keep your guests stomachs full. There are many new themes to give your park a unique look or set areas to a theme to add more excitement and they are: Jurassic, jungle, snow, space, medieval, creepy, urban and pagoda and all the old themes are still there and are still very cool to use. As always in theme parks you always need a little help as those paths need to be spotless before your guests leave because of the mess. There is also staff you only see at Disney World which are people getting paid to sweat in a hot costume entertaining people as not everyone will be in a good mood. As an improvement they have added five new costumes to entertain people instead of the usual three available which. The costume available to use is: Tiger, Elephant, Panda, and Astronaut, knight, snowman, gorilla, roman to help those themes look even better. The game also includes 30 brand new scenarios to test your management skills and just to have fun. I have bought the game and it is brilliant as you have full control and worth the price of buying all three games. It’s a brilliant creation and there is a rumour of another one coming out very soon!

              Just got it in, the new “RollerCoaster Tycoon” data disc “Loony Landscapes”. It’s totally amazing it got 30 more scenarios, which include the British theme parks Alton Towers and Blackpool Pleasure Beach. It also contains NEW SHOPS, NEW RIDES, AND EXITING NEW THEMES such as an ice paradise and candy Land. This great game requires the original RollerCoaster Tycoon disc to play. I myself would recommend this game to people who have played and liked games like Theme Park, SimCity 3000 and Theme Hospital. It’s minimum requirements are Pentium 90 CPU; windows 95/98; 16 MB RAM; 4X Cd-rom drive; 45 MB of free hard drive space; 1MB SVGA card; windows 95/98 compatible sound card; direct X 5.0 which is included on the original RollerCoaster Tycoon Cd; Mouse. Their website is www.rollercoastertycoon.com or www.micropose.com .

                Advantages

                Disadvantages

                If you have ever played the first Theme Park you will love RollerCoaster Tycoon. The game is specifically designed to make rollercoasters, and they can be as wacky as you like even if it kills the people getting on them. Now with the new expansion pack Loppy Landscapes it allows you to build more rides and add totally new features to your rides. It also incorperates the Added Attractions Pack which also gives you more designs to muck around with and a lot more scenarios to play. The game in itself isn't really any different from Rollercoaster tycoon so don't go expecting anything spectacular. However the Loppy Landscapes will save you money if you do not know which of the two add ons to buy as both are incorperated onto the the one CD. So if you are getting bored of the Rollercoasters on the original game I suggest you go out and buy Loppy landscapes. If you were wondering the add on also has all the parks you can download from the internet for example Alton Towers and Brighton Leisure Park. Have fun with the game and try not to make all your guests feel to ill. Enjoy!!!

                  If you enjoy the fun of the fair then I suggest you invest in Rollercoaster tycoon for the PC. The game lets you take control of your very own theme park so you can really take things to the Max. When you start you are given certain amount of cash to play with and the parks are yours. From the highs to the lows boom or bust the park is yours and so is the lives of many excited children around your park. Why not add a vertical loop to a stand up steel coaster and really heat things up. The game also has add-ons so if you found the original easy why not go a step further with loony landscapes and awesome attractions. Rise and fall its up to you to make a success of your park and keep the punters happy. Another great piece from Microprose.
