They better port this over to the iPad

I don't need to say anything else.

If it's a sim management title then it shouldn't even be on 3DS, but rather iPad and Vita.

and the touchscreen is smaller than the top screen this time so now it's even more asinine.

Atari's making this? What about Test Drive Unlimited for 3DS? (and Vita)

Aren't there already a bajillion type of "tycoon-inspired" games on the App Store? An offical one like this would most likely lend itself well to the platform.

First rollercoaster tycoon is the best. I've never liked the third one

Yeah I don't like the idea of a polygonal RollerCoaster Tycoon, that first game was so great though, I put so many hours into that one.

I liked the clay like renderings of the first, i think the second one was the same.

I think I might install Roller Coaster Tycoon 2 later, that game is the best.

RollerCoaster Tycoon 4 just needs to happen. If SimCity can make a comeback, so can this.

quoted for truth.

With out Chris sawyers passion (he's a theme park nerd) this game will lack character.

Believe me, you'd rather have any other RCT ported other than the 3DS version *shudders*. I wrote a (hopefully) suitably informative review here, if you're interested. Personally, I liked all the main games (1, 2, and yes, even 3). The scenarios for 3 could get pretty bland, but I certainly enjoyed riding rides I built in first person view (not to mention waterfalls, loudspeakers, and the dune-buggy cheat code).

Things got better when I discovered a site with recreations of nearly all of the RCT1 scenarios, and some of the RCT2 ones as well, over to the RCT3 engine. (http://www.mikeworleymusic.com/rct3/index.html) The site itself isn't the most aesthetically pleasing thing around, but the content is definitely worth it. Imagine riding one of the Three Monkeys coasters in first person, and you'll get the idea.
