Is hyper rails worth spending the money on?

Monday, September 1, 2003 7:50 AM
I know this is probably in the wrong forum, but there is no longer a hyper rails forum. I was wondering do you think it is worth the $20 to purchase hyper rails? or is no limits that much better?

thank you for your help

Im not for sure if hyper rails is better or not, tha graphics and the detaill look pretty good from screen shots. i would buy hyper rails. and then maybe in the future purchase no limits or Scream Machines.

I personally don't think so. I much prefer No Limits. NL in genral is easier to use, even from the start you can make decent coasters but after a month of practice you can start making good ones, and it has a lot different types of tracks. While HR only has like 6 and NL 13.

Obviously since the HR forum was removed from the site that should answer the question right there.

NL,while more complex than HR seems to be more popular,probably because it was released about 2 years earlier.

What I want to know is why the heck is there a DDR forum here? it's just a dance related vidio game that has nothing to do with parks whatsoever but the only reason it's even mentioned on this board is probably because there are DDR machines in most theme park arcades.

I remember reading in a post that someone picked it up on clearance somewhere for $1.99. I would think it would be worth it if you could find a deal like that.

NoLimits isn't easier to use, not by a long shot. The UI and ability to alter and test a coaster while it's in motion make HR a far better product. Its weak point is that its graphics are just slightly inferior and it never generated the same kind of community.

I also found Hyper Rails for $1.99 at Best Buy. I would suggest going there for your best deal.

I think Hyper Rails is worth the $20. I love playing it now that I'm getting better at making coasters. I have never played No Limits but Hyper Rails is really a lot of fun once you get used to it.

I say it is worth $20 even though I don't play it very much since I like NL better and I'm so used to working with it. If you can get it fo $1.99, then more power to you at thhat price it would be a steal for quality and graphics like that. In fact Jeff Putz liked it so much he put the Coasterbuzz name right on the box.

Speaking about HR just the other day I came across my CD for that game, I should go ahead and install it on my newer computer and get the patches for that game.

Now if NL didn't exist I would take HR over Scream Machines anyday.

Scream Machines has a much easier editor than NL.NL's graphics aren't any better than SM but for som reason i prefer NL's simulator over SM. It's probably the texture and colors of it, i don't know!

It was I that found it at Best Buy for $1.99. I haven't really had the chance to play it due to my roomates PC blowing up (but I still get to use the mac). What little bit I did do with the game was interesting but a little difficult for me, a RTC lover, to understand. If one could find the game for $1.99, go for it.

If you want the best and most realistic - get No Limits. In my opinion, Hyper Rails doesn't hold anything up to it.

But if you want the second best - Go with Hyper Rails. ;)

I regret spending a deuce on HR. The instruction manual is just plain bad, with poor illustrations/screen shots and technical writing. When you actually want to know what something does, it always give the helpful advice "experiment with it..." If I wanted to experiment, I wouldn't be consulting the very unhelpful guide, would I?

Is that a Q-bot in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?
