RollerCoaster Tycoon World
RollerCoaster Tycoon World is a theme park management and construction simulator developed by Nvizzio Creations and published by Atari for PC. It is the fourth main installment in the RollerCoaster Tycoon series. The game was released a day before Planet Coaster was released.
Why It Sucks
- It cost $50 at launch. Atari has since reduced the price so they can try and make players buy their game instead of Frontier Developments' Planet Coaster, though physical copies still retail for $40.
- The music doesn't fit the tone of the game.
- Unnecessarily long loading times.
- Ugly visuals.
- Limited amount of rides and features, even compared to RollerCoaster Tycoon 3.
- Editing the terrain has also been scaled down in flexibility.
- No undo button.
- Large amount of bugs and glitches.
- Transportation and water rides, which were featured in the first three RollerCoaster Tycoon installments (and their expansion packs), are not in the game. They were promised to have been added as part of a future free update, but such an update remains to be seen.
- Limited ride customization. For example, you can't even change where the Entrance and Exit are located, nor can the color of the rides be changed. Also, there is no option for custom music for the rides, and only five music choices, all of which are essentially themed variations of the game's main title.
- Hideous, intrusive interface that looks more like it belongs on a mobile game.
- Atari can’t take negative criticism for this game, at all.
- Atari lied to the community about content on release, they stole artwork from No Limits, and have called most of "their community" trolls.
- Updates have been few and far between, as much as eight months in one instance, and the updates are mostly bug fixes or additional scenery. No further rides have been added since a December 2016 update, which only added three self-contained flat rides.
- The most recent update was in September 2018, which added an auto-save feature, something that should have been in the game when it was first released.
The Only Redeeming Quality
- While the visuals are ugly, they are colorful to look at.
