New Waterpark Sim Software

Thursday, August 28, 2003 6:41 AM
Hi all! Last night I went over to Wal-Mart. While I was there I saw this new PC game called "Wild Rides."(with some subtitle, can't remember) It is by Activision. It is basically RCT except you build waterparks. The graphics looked a bit like SimCoaster type and the box says there are 1000's of different pieces to use in constructing the slides. It also says that you can follow a particular guest around and go on the slides with them in 3D. It looked pretty cool, but since we have all been burned many times by Roller Coaster sim software I figured I'd hold off on spending the $19.99 until I knew more about it. However, the Activision Web site has no mention of the product whatsoever. Activision is generally reputable (ok, not always), but does anyone know anything about this new game?

Thanks!

Forget it guys! Found it on the Web at all sorts of places. Bad reviews, misleading box art, etc.

There goes that!

It's a really, really abysmal piece of "software." I want the $0.50 I layed out for it back. I'll take more, though. We'll just call it an accounting error.

The Activision "tycoon" games are, in my opinion, total and complete crap.

They're trying to cash in on the RCT craze that swept the world not too long ago and are producing piss poor games to do so.
