The runaway computer hit RollerCoaster Tycoon streaks onto Xbox as part of a compilation featuring add-on packs Corkscrew Follies and Loopy Landscapes. For those unfamiliar with the 1999 game and its two expansion titles, the object is to build and then manage a theme park filled with over 50 rides. Players will be in charge of every detail, such as planting trees to heighten the park's aesthetic appeal, hiring staff to make sure everything operates smoothly, setting ticket prices, and deciding on the location of food stands or toilets to generate extra income or to keep people from having "accidents" during intense rides.
In addition to roller coasters, players can purchase merry-go-rounds, log flumes, Ferris wheels, bumper cars, and more, each varying in cost, size, and level of excitement. The game is divided into a series of increasingly challenging missions taking place in varied locales, including the fantasy settings of Medieval, Jurassic, Martian, and Ice theme parks. Objectives typically involve attracting a certain number of visitors to the park and achieving a specific popularity rating before the deadline. ~ Scott Alan Marriott, All Game Guide
