Read a game review of Atari's RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 PC video game!

The roar of the roller coaster, the smell of hot dogs, the sugary buzz from eating cotton candy and the gross dude who hurls all over your kid brother after riding the big coaster - it's all part of a roller coaster theme park. Now, with Atari's RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, you can run your own theme park and watch as peeps run around having fun, eating candy and getting sick! Here's a Kidzworld review of this wicked-sounding PC video game.

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 Theme Park Fun Stuff

Playing this PC game is a lot like playing Zoo Tycoon 2 - you get a chunk of cash and use it to build the roller coaster theme park of your dreams. But, there are tons of extra options to muck with and fun things to do. You can add your own mp3s to the game tunes, build your own park visitors called peeps, ride the roller coaster yourself with the CoasterCam, and even plan your own fireworks display. In RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 there are missions where you have goals to achieve, or you can just play in Sandbox Mode where you have unlimited cash to build the park of your dreams.

Does This Game Make You Wanna Hurl?

Here's the part that'll make you cry. RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 is packed full of wicked options, cool graphics, fun modes, excellent stuff to play with and it's totally easy to learn. But, it's buggy. It'll crash in the middle of the game, sometimes crashing your computer. There are even little glitches that make playing it a bit awkward.

Is RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 Worth a Ride?

Not yet. It's a real shame cuz, if it weren't for the bugs, it would be a 5/5. But, until Atari makes a patch you can download that'll fix the glitches, it's way too frustrating.
