...you wait and wait in line in vain for ages, and then 2 suddenly come along at once!

Rollercoaster Tycoon World (RCTW) launched on 16th November and Planet Coaster (PC) on 17th November.


So far Planet Coaster seems to be getting the better reviews. Some may be tempted by the 'branding' on RCTW, but the developers of RCTW were not involved with the previous titles. Planet Coaster on the other hand, was developed by Frontier Developments, who wrote both the RCT2 expansions, and RCT3 and both expansions too.


I hated the RCT2 expansions with its oversized scenery, I hated RCT3 period because of the (IMO) crappy AI. But I'm impressed by PC and the way the Frontier are building a community for the game.


Both are available on STEAM, with PC so far having a more favourable rating (And more players) but there does seem to be a lot 'fan boy' fighting between fans of each game.

I thought about trying Planet Coaster because it does look and sound impressive! But I found I can't! I only have 4 GB memory. That's half of what is needed as a minimum..........Oh well..........

I purchased Planet Coaster a while back, and have played a bit.  I really like it, and only wish i had the time and drive to play it like i did RCT.  PC is everything that i wanted from RCT, it really is an awesome game!
