About Judy

As WP's senior editor, I edit review and preview articles, attempt to keep up with the frantic pace of Rainier's news posts, and keep our reviewers on deadline, which is akin to herding cats. When I have a moment to myself and don't have my nose in a book, I like to play action/RPG, adventure and platforming games...

'RollerCoaster Tycoon 3' Goes Gold

by Judy on Oct. 11, 2004 @ 7:13 a.m. PDT

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 will take the series to new heights with brand new features including 3-D graphics, giving players complete control of views around the park, and a front seat to the action with a new Coaster Cam(TM) feature that allows players to ride the roller coasters. RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 will also feature new gameplay elements that fans have been asking for - including diversity of guests, added group behavior and improved guest AI - and many other new features which build upon the fun and addictive nature of the original game.

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 is a complete update for the franchise with stunning 3D graphics and the ability to see the park from the eyes of a guest and ride all the rides with the new CoasterCam feature. The game features amazing crowd scenes with enhanced park guests and characters, over 170 rides including new-to-the-franchise roller coaster types, realistic day and night cycles with superb lighting effects, extensive still-picture and movie-making capability to allow players to share the fruits of their creativity, a Sandbox Mode and many other new features which build upon the fun and addictive nature of the original games.

In addition, a new Fireworks MixMaster lets players create pyrotechnic masterpieces and synchronize them to music using pre-set in-game songs or selections from their own music files. And, as with all the other customizable elements like exchanging rides and people, in RollerCoaster Tycoon 3, players will be able to trade firework shows with other players. In addition, RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 will also include the ability to assign music from the player's own library to rides in the park, import roller coaster designs from previous games in the franchise, and features various weather effects.

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 was developed by Frontier Developments, Ltd. of Cambridge, England, in conjunction with Chris Sawyer, the creator and sole developer of the RollerCoaster Tycoon franchise. A free playable demo of RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 is available for download at http://www.atari.com/rollercoastertycoon. A pre-order program is currently underway allowing consumers that reserve a copy of the game to receive a Coaster Pack containing three exclusive, professionally designed coasters. Additional information about the features of the new game, videos, screenshots, character art, background information and other assets can also be found on the official site.
