Planet Coaster Review

By Akhil Arora (Nov 24, 2016)
  • Good
  • Everything is customisable ? rides, props, and buildings
  • Building your own coaster is intuitive, and quick
  • Cartoony visuals and pop soundtrack is inviting
  • Bad
  • Management side can be frustrating
  • Hitboxes for rides tend to get in the way

If you've spent any amount of time with 2004's RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, you'll feel right at home with Planet Coaster – a new theme park construction and management game released last week – built by the same people, Frontier Developments. The game shares much of Roller Coaster Tycoon 3's DNA, which is not surprising considering that game has sold over 10 million copies since launch. Unfortunately that also means sticking to some design decisions around micromanagement that started more than a decade ago, and seem out of place today.
