Atari, the publisher of the forthcoming RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, today launched a new Web site for the game that features screenshots and video, revealing a number of new rides. New video clips show complete point-of-view video of several coaster varieties. They also announced the addition of a fireworks editor, where players will be able to design their own fireworks shows and set them to music.
Visit the official RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 site.
I'm speechless...Okay, maybe not. I know that some people think that the company is trying too hard to "give the fans what they want", but so what? It looks as if all the core stuff that we need is going to be in here with exciting new extras that surpass just having new themes on rides and scenery. You want to theme a ride to a specific part of your park? Got it. You want different types of scenery? Its here too, and I'm sure there will be more in the expansions. Want more flats? Plenty of new ones in the screen shots. MP3 imports? Gottem. Nite time mode? Looks like the sun is setting there too. Fireworks? Not only did they put them in the game, but You have control over them as well! Better AI? Do I even need to keep on going?
As long as they deliver what they promise, a fully 3D version of Roller Coaster Tycoon with all the favorites as well as what the people want and even a few surpises here and there, I think that this will be the game to get for anybody in 2004.
Thank you, Chris Sawyer, for starting me on the road to an obsession, and thank you, Atari & Frontier for bringing us more than we could have hoped for!*** This post was edited by TeknoScorpion 7/3/2004 9:04:14 PM ***
As TechnoScorpion said, they seem to satisfy all the wishlists that were out there and there is nothing bad about it. I hope that with all the stuff that seems to be in the game, the creativity of the gamers will not be limited due to an abundance of features. (does that make sense? ;) )
After all the crap that was thrown at us in WW and TT, it is great to see that this time they try to step into the right direction again. By adding classic, vintage rides (ZIPPER!) and state of the art Euro-stuff (Top-Scan) they really offer a great variety of playing.
Looking at the specs I would think I could run RC3 on the lowest settings, but with you saying not a chance, that has me alittle worried.
The amount of detail in this is amazing....I love the true-to-life track and trains...namely the Intamin...
