HOLY S***, this game looks AWSOME, i believe it has 4D, if you look at the cover.

I think my job I'm shooting for has just been replaced by a computer game!!! Not that I'm totally complaining - this requires a lot less school and professional experience ;)

This is 100x better than RCT !!! I want it so bad, but then I don't want august to get here to soon.

I wonder if you can interlace the coasters?

Now if we could only add a lemon chill stand... :)

Looks great!

Hopefully it's more user friendly than NL.

Where do I find the system requirements?


The CPlaya 100--6 days, 9 parks, 47 coasters, 2037 miles and a winner.....LoCoSuMo.

holy crap that looks unreal (and i mean that in a good way not in the literal way, it looks quite realistic). do ya think i'll be able to play it on a 2 1/2 year old computer? gee i really hope so...

That looks great - the 4D looks really good. It looks like it has about five different rollercoaster types.

This Season:
Flights on Air: 1
Escapes From Nemesis: 1
Drops into Oblivion: 1

I'm guessing the requirements will be on the high side, because you're pushing a lot of polygons and potentially more than one ride on the map. I'm sure you could get away with a an older 3D card, but I bet a 1 GHz processor and a GeForce4 video card would be really helpful.

If you look closely on the box, you can see S:UE! I hope this means impulses! If it does, this game will be even more better. I am definately getting this game.

People with older cards can probably just use the lower resolution and 16bit color to speed the game up.

Soo, who is the publisher that picked up on the game?

If I remember correctly, it wasn't all that long ago, that this game was going to be on-line only. I guess it must have been good enough to impress a publisher.

Does anyone know who picked it up and what their history in previous games are? (ie: other games they published... preferably successful ones)

....Summer is only a short 91 days long. How much of that time are you going to use at the amusement parks??

And this game will be retail, none of that online crap that i just end up Ahem.... Anyway, This game will be sweet I am buying this.

I hope there is a demo but I dought they will put one out. I am in a money jam following the purchase of No Limits, oh well. Wait!! I have Best Buy gift cards!! haha, and that's how I'm getting Rct2 too!

Top 5:
5) S:ros Sfdl 4) Raptor 3) Apollos Chariot 2) Magnum 1) Millennium Force

"Millenium Force", there are impulses in this. Obviously because it is on the cover and on the inside and it says you can launch your coaster using Linear Inductoin Motors. This game will be great.

This is one sweet looking game and it will be in stores at least 2 months ahead of RCT2,now I know what to get for my birthday.

Apparently someone posted something about this game being dead because of RCT2's impending release,well here's the proof that hyper rails is still very much alive and unlike no limits or scream machines it will be available in retail outlets as opposed to online only. Does anyone have any clue as to what the purchase price will be?

Tuesday, June 18, 2002 7:43 AM

Now the question is will the editor be easier or more difficult than No Limits?

While the screens do look nice, I'm still X-tremely skeptical about this product. Remember by it was made by the same people that made that horrible excuse for software known as Rollercoaster Factory.

I don't know how they can realistically go from the lowest of RC programs to what could potentially be the best RC sim on the planet.

"Soo, who is the publisher that picked up on the game?"

Pantera Entertainment are the publisher.
