    I haven't heard much about this... I'm gonna go look and learn more, unless someone can tell me. Do you make and ride roller coasters? Or is it a whole theme park thing?

    I was gonna ask the same thing, but i think i know what it is. It says strategy, and there is a track missing on the boxart, so perhaps we have to build tracks to get from one place to another, or something like that.

    I downloaded the XBL demo but never got around to playing it before deleting. Will definitely give this a try.

    How is this compared to theme park for the DS? And what about Rollercoaster tycoon for the PC?

    This looks really interesting. It's like Theme Park with horrow themes. it's made by Lucas and published by Sierra. This should be interesting.

    This is a lot better than Theme Park mainly because it isnt a port of a 13 year old game.

    Maybe Xenophobia wants to claim this game first so nobody else dump it. [​IMG]

    PC to handheld ports are only recently becoming fairly accurate in thems of visuals, sounds, and gameplay. Theme Park had a DOS version. Same with Sim City 2000. And that game The Tower SP is based on came out for at least Windows 3.x.

    I played Theme Park DS for nostalgic reasons, I played that game too much in my younger years when it was released. I played the PSP version of this game long ago, and I've tried the XBox 360 demo for this game... there's some fun things and some blah things about this. It is like Theme Park in the fact you build a full theme park and build roller coasters.... but for placement is limited (so you don't get to do all the layout of the park, as you had freedom in theme park and roller coaster tycoon games). But the fun thing this game adds is the ability to play all the carnival games, and race the go-karts on tracks you created, and ride the rides... not sure how much of this the DS version will include. I'll try this... but I doubt I'll play it as much as I played theme park.
