      A load of stuff to do and you won't get bored

      Thrillville is a variation on the tycoon games that have been released in the past and this game for the PSP is a great fun game to play. I have to admit that in the time I've been playing it I've always been interested and not bored by the gameplay at all. There are so many different things you can do to keep you occupied.

      I played Thrillville on the PSP last year and there are a few things that are different from previous versions of the game. The graphics are pretty good on this console which adds to the playability.

      Basically Thrillville is like a big party in a theme park that you create from scratch. You can customise what you want and decide what rides you want to include. You are able to interact with your guests that arrive at your new theme park and build rollercoasters and in fact over one hundred other attractions to make sure they stay. Another great thing is that you can actually sample the rides you have installed to see what they are like. You are able to go racing in go-karts or jump on rollercoaster rides for example. You have to always make sure guests are happy throughout though in between playing all the mini-games.

      One of the things I liked about this game was that you are able to unlock a new theme park and pick which one you actually want to unlock which adds to the interest. In total there are five parks to choose from and each park is divided into three other mini-parks. There is no rush playing this game and moves along at a nice leisurely pace for the most part. Even if you complete the missions you are given you can go back and play the mini-games that are featured so there's something for everyone.

      The graphics are extremely good for the PSP and the attention to detail is second to none as you explore the theme park on foot or use your rides. In addition the game loads quickly which is always handy. I really loved the mini-games that you can play, including pool and whacking a mole etc.

      This is a game that I won't get bored with in a hurry as there is so much to do and see and the challenges are there to keep things running smoothly. If you like simulation games and amusement parks this game is perfect for you.

      A great game until you reach the limitations.

      I picked up Thrillville after loving Rollercoaster Tycoon on the PC and I had been looking for something similar ever since. The game is very similar but it isn't as good. You can't build things where you want and the soundtrack is useless.

      The graphics are very good and superb, one of the best features of the game. The game has a rubbish soundtrack and the game crashes all the time. The game has a lot of slowdown but this doesn't ruin the game.

      In the game, you are a kid running a theme park and play minigames with the customers, ask them if they like your area and become friends with them. The idea is very good and this is the only game like it on the PSP.

      The game is very limited and you can only place things where the game deems to be safe. The park is also already built so you can't start from scratch like in Rollercoaster Tycoon.

      The game does have some good points, mainly the really detailed graphics and some great arcade minigames like dodgems and other theme park games. It is fun to be able to play the games giving your more incentive to create a park with good rides.

      Overall, the game is a great buy and will keep you entertained, it is at least worth a rent.

      Kids will enjoy it, Adults may find it boring

      I bought Thrillville last year and its alright a little tiny bit like Roller Coaster Tycoon. I thought this was going to be a lot like Roller Coaster Tycoon like you could build a ride where ever you want but no you cant, in Thrillville there are building points and you can only build rides in the places the game wants you to. So this game will not let you place rides where ever which is what I mean by building points. The music to the game is not very good its actually boring the songs are made in house from the creators of the game. It does feature "KT Tunstall - Suddenly I See" in the game which is the only decent song and the only song I knew

      The story to the game is you play as Kid who is running the theme park and you can ask people if they like your theme park, you can play mini games with the public and gain friends with them and help them. The people will also give you their opinion's on what they think of the theme park.

      Thrillville is very limited to what you can do as this game would have been great if it would let you place rides or stalls where ever you want. The park is also built for you unlike in games like Theme Park that gives you an empty park where you have to build everything in this game that does not happen.

      The graphics on this are great there is a lot of detail on the rides and the park surroundings which look great on the PSP. It has about 20 mini games which is the main reason why i bought this these include, trampolining, dodgems, first person shooter fighting robots and theres more some are good some are bad. With Thrillville you can walk around the park with your character and also go on the rides and have a bit of fun. You can also meet people and chat to people who visit your theme park you can flirt with them, chat about the theme park and also ask them random questions. This does get boring pretty fast and easy as it is a kids games its just so easy Thrillville. To people who want a challenge get roller coaster tycoon boxset for PC it has every game from the coaster tycoon series check that one out its way better. Why does it get this rating for of 3 stars because its too easy and its pretty boring theres no challenge in this game and the music sucks.
