CoasterBuzz has posted a preview of the forthcoming RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, hitting a PC near you around November 2. This preview has screen shots and video that no other coaster or gaming site has. We'll post additional screens and video on Wednesday and Friday this week, featuring a mix of point-of-view video and screens of scenery and scenarios.

Read the preview and view the media.

The first few times playing the demo I absolutely hated it, but kept on plugging. Yesterday, I tried going back to RCT2 and only played a few minutes before returning to the RCT3 demo. So, Atari can count on my $ on 11/2...A few quick questions that the demo can't answer...

1) Is the "sandbox" mode what the name implies? Free reign to do whatever you want with all rides available and no money restrictions? Are peeps present?

2) Does the scenario editor still exist?Thanks--Joel

I believe the answer to all of those questions is yes.

That mouse had some crazy spinning going on.

I didn't try to introduce peeps into the sandbox, but it would be weird if you couldn't. The scenario editor UI in the build I have is really crude, and obviously not final, so I'm not sure what to expect there.

Thanks for the great opportunity to see some really cool vids and screen shots. I personally like the kid throwing a fit! Are you going to give us a POV of the Intamin in the background of that Wild Mouse? Now I have got to get me a new video card so I can play.

Yep... and of an inverter and a few others.

What resolution and video card is that shown on?

The video is 800x600, but the screenshots are 1280x1024, resized.
