I know this has been discussed in another thread however given that it's only 6-12 or so months away, I figure it could use its own thread.

So far it's looking great, but I just can't wait to see how they screw this up.

I can't get over how bad the coaster track is. I get their target market probably doesn't care too much about realism but still, no banked turns in their supposed "best track editor ever" says something.

This is a perfect example why we'll never see: (or at least certainly should never see)

>Half-Life 3

>Portal 3

>Left 4 Dead 3

Atari should have left it to die when it went bankrupt, or at least sell it (the rights) to Frontier or someone like that who could do it justice.

RCTM was an absolute failure with it's micro-transactions.

The franchise should be left to rot how it was originally after Soaked and Wild came out.

I'm not holding much hope for next year's "Coaster Park Tycoon" but we'll see how Frontier goes with that one.

Theme Park Studio was a let down for me too.

^ Likewise but would you expect much more from the developers of Hyper Rails? They did promise the world and it did look good in screenshots but my oh my do they need to go to UI school.

I'm quietly confident in Frontier. They've developed a couple similar non-realistic theme park games but at least they were clear with their target market. I think they'll be laughing at and learning off the mistakes of RCTW

Ok, so I've just tried the RCTW alpha and I must say. WOW! 

The realism is incredible! 

Well I assume it is anyway, I mean I've never ridden a rollercoaster during an earthquake before, but this looks about right. 

I think it should be renamed to "Roller Coaster Tycoon Whoalookouttheresanearthquake"

that's four hours that you will be getting back... :P 

ok here are my impressions on the game.. ok first of all...

- what the fuck did they do with peeps? the Miis on the Wii look better than this,  

- coaster editor can be frustrating at times, 

- have I already mentioned the peeps are shit? 

will post pictures of my park tomorrow,

let's hope the game gets better very soon, and I hope it lives up to the same legacy as RCT3 did, (which I'm not counting on) and it's a lot more better than RCT on the 3DS
