RollerCoaster Tycoon 3: Platinum includes RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 and its first two expansion packs, Soaked! and Wild!. As in earlier RollerCoaster Tycoon games, players take on all the authority and responsibility of an amusement park manager, directing day-to-day operations and ongoing development. Virtual tycoons are challenged to manage staffing, pricing, and the design of the park's layout and new attractions, in order to bring in as many paying guests as possible and keep them happy and spending their money.
Moving the business sim series from 2D to 3D, RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 is designed to make good use of its new technology with numerous aesthetic additions and gameplay improvements, such as gradual day and night cycles, customizable fireworks displays, weather effects, and the chance for players to finally experience the rides they create from a first-hand perspective — a longtime desire among fans of the series.
RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 was created by Frontier Developments in conjunction with Chris Sawyer, the creator of the franchise. The Cambridge, England-based studio has demonstrated its qualifications for the task with its expansions for RollerCoaster Tycoon 2, Wacky Worlds, and Time Twister, as well as with its family friendly console games Dog's Life and Wallace & Gromit in Project Zoo. ~ T.J.
