    Ultimate Ride Disney Coaster Review - PC
    Review by Justin Raymond, with screen shots. Score: 7.5/10.

  • › › Ultimate Ride Disney Coaster Review Detail Sections - by GZ - from Web - by GZ - from Web Categories Platforms GZ Sites Newsletter Helpful Links More you can do Email by Disney Interactive Reviewer: Review Date: 10/21/2002 Do you dream of creating fast, looping, fun roller coasters that belong in Disneyland? If your answer is yes, then this is a game for you

  • The actual builder is reminiscent of the one that Roller Coaster Tycoon sports

  • It's almost like riding a real roller coaster, honestly...or at least as close an experience as one might get from sitting at a computer

  • It's a little like the popular Roller Coaster Tycoon , except it's only creating coasters, it's 3D, and there are many more options

  • Gameplay: 6.0 Disney Coaster is all about creating roller coasters

  • And while you can definitely create some cool roller coasters - and probably have fun doing it - there isn't really anything else to do

  • The roller coaster itself is modeled pretty well, too

  • The various sounds of roller coasters are realistic, and everything else is high-quality

  • Difficulty: Easy You can basically work at your own pace creating roller coasters how you like them

    Ultimate Ride Coaster Deluxe Review - PC
    Review by Anise Hollingshead, with screen shots. Score: 8/10.

  • Like the original, the deluxe offers a simulated roller coaster designer that lets gamers actually ride their completed creations

  • Imagineer mode is the mission mode, where scenarios with specific requirements have to be solved, either by completing or building a roller coaster under certain rules

  • In build mode, players can choose from five roller coaster types, standing, flying, hanging, wooden and steel

  • The backgrounds are somewhat blocky, as are the props, but the rollercoaster's themselves look very nice

  • Riding the roller coasters is cool, and gives gamers the feeling they're really on that monster ride they just built! Just as in the original, players can upload/download roller coasters on the Internet and compete for title of Rollergod

  • This is a roller coaster simulation, pure and simple, not a theme park management game

  • It all really depends if players are more interested in roller coaster simulations, or in management type games

  • I and my daughter both prefer Roller Coaster Tycoon , as we enjoy taking care of the theme park, plus building the roller coasters

  • I would really like to see some of these roller coaster simulation functions added to RCT, if there's a new edition anytime in the future

  • Roller Coaster Tycoon kind of came out of nowhere to become one of the most popular strategy games

  • Ah, and the satisfaction of building a huge, exciting roller coaster (and then finding out it is so nauseating that no one wants to ride)

  • For instance, build a pathway leading to five different roller coasters, slap a banner down that says “Roller Coaster Land” (or something to that effect) and you have instant “themes” within your park, or block the exit path to a ride so that it doesn’t get too crowded

  • But there’s more to a park than scenery, right? Corkscrew Follies adds a new hat stand, hot dog and candy apple vendors, a miniature golf course, an entertainer dressed as a Roman guard, and more! There are also new historical roller coasters that have to be seen to be believed

  • You can also change the color of balloons and of individual sections of the roller coasters

  • Now, after two expansion packs ( Corkscrew Follies and Loopy Landscapes ), developer Chris Sawyer and publisher Infogrames have released RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 - but can a good game be made even better? As it turns out, RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 is remarkably similar to its predecessor

  • There are 26 scenarios, which is more than the 21 in the original RollerCoaster Tycoon , but you're clearly undertaking exactly the same tasks you did before, with no startlingly new wrinkles in the missions

  • Perhaps the most immediately evident new facet of RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 is that it's obtained the official Six Flags amusement park license, facilitating the inclusion of 25 Six Flags roller coasters from five different Six Flags locations, including Six Flags Magic Mountain and Six Flags Great Adventure

  • The rides from the original RollerCoaster Tycoon and its two add-on packs have been absorbed into RollerCoaster Tycoon 2 , along with several new variations
