Comments and Ratings for RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 Platinum

Disappointing (3.3.1)
26/02/2017 10:32:10 1/5 By Pinklady2508
I downloaded this game 26th Feb 2017 and paid £19.99, the game doesn’t allow me to zoom in and out so I tried to change the settings under the options menu and now it doesn’t work at all? It has deleted the presets out and won’t allow me to replace them. If you are using this on a Macbook I wouldn’t recommend as I cannot play the game at all other that it being zoomed in so close that I can only see one square at a time...

It’s a good game (3.3.1)

The game is great. Simple to understand and work and highly addictive. However a few errors; - Occasional texture bugs with underground coasters - Cannot create a new campaign, due to only the ‘load custom scenario’ button working so have to stick to sandbox, which can get dull.

01/12/2016 14:00:00 1/5 By CorrBlimey
Very disappointed… Was really looking forward to playing this game, however the main game window is grey and doesn’t allow you to see anything. Do not buy on El Capitan or above until a fix is issued.

No images - Don’t buy on yosemite (3.3.1)
27/11/2016 06:54:00 1/5 By SaxDx
Installed no problem, open the game and the music and buttons are all there, but no picture. Open a new game, tutorial, sandbox, etc - no picture. After an hour of trying to find a solution online many people said PowerPC apps cannot run on, which is what this game is. I’ve spent another hour trying to find anything I can download to try to get it to work with no luck. DO NOT BUY WITH YOSEMITE. If you’re not sure if your computer can run it just download it from PirateBay to save you the hassle of trying to get a refund.

Appalling primitive games (3.3.1)

Ok game, awful support from Aspyr (1.0.2)
13/09/2015 01:31:00 1/5 By Doc Jonny
Having been a huge rollercoaster fan fans since the orignal release. I must attest that I have found Aspyr tech supprt to be incredibly rude and unwilling to help resolve issues with there games. The game itself is very good, there some issues, and ig you expereince these, do not expect Aspyr to bother to help a customer, once they have pocketed your money for the sale of the game. They could learn a thing or two from apple, in context of customer services.

Very outdated graphics (1.0.2)
26/06/2015 23:14:00 2/5 By iankb
I was expecting rather better graphics, but this is obviously a port of the original simplistic quality (or lack thereof). Clunky angles rather than smooth curves rather ruined it for me.

Not insanley great (1.0.1)
09/01/2015 00:55:00 3/5 By Justin&Emma
I purchased this game for nostalgias sake as I love playing RCT3 on the PC way back when, and I wasn’t dissapointed as it is everything I remembered, when it worked. I have a top of the range MacBook Pro Retina with every option specified to the highest level and still this game made my machine hang and become unresponsive. I think the developer needs to do some optimisation work on this game. Be forewarned!

Horrible Controls (1.0.1)
30/08/2014 13:17:00 2/5 By TomChap1987
I loved this game back in the day but the controls for this version are (for me at least) difficult to get used too. Eventually had to stop playing. The game is still brilliant though and if the controls were fixed I would be hooked again!

Old School RCT - A few tiny issues, but with easy solutions. (1.0.1)
13/07/2014 00:12:00 4/5 By Spellman18
I was a little bit apprehensive of buying this game due to the mixed reviews, so I felt I was taking a bit of a risk when I decided to go for it. I bought the game for a sort of nostalgia trip, and I was expecting pretty much old-style RCT for PC. The gameplay is exactly what I expected - I wanted to build a theme park, and roller coasters, and that’s what I got - with the addition of some new cool features, such as Coastercam, better graphics and the expansion packs. From reading other reviews, I was worried that the game controls would be set for PC gamers - and true, the tutorials do seem to have been written for people with a ‘right/left mouse click’ and with a tracking wheel. A quick google search, however, and there are keyboard alternatives. Some of the icons are quite small during gameplay, but hovering over them gives a text bubble indicating what they are - a few minutes into the game, and this really wasn’t a problem any more. The zoom-in/out is quite sensitive, but if you use a smooth movement on the trackpad, it’s fine - again, it didn’t take me long to get used to it. Overall, I got what I wanted - basic RCT. It’s fun, creative, if a bit easy a times - but very much in the same style as older RCTS. As far as I’m concerned there are a few glitches, but nothing that would have prevented me from buying this game.

Terrible (1.0.1)
15/06/2014 23:25:00 1/5 By Literally useless
Absolutely awful. The game does not work. As soon as you boot it up, the mac heats up and the fan goes like crazy and it drains your battery. The camera is impossible to work and the interface is very clunky. Do not download!!

Extremely Mediocre Port (1.0.1)
06/06/2014 20:39:00 3/5 By //Erro:r
The PC version of this game is a classic, the third entry in one of the best strategy and simulation games of all time. Sadly this game doesn’t live up to much. Not many of the sounds are in this version for some reason. They just don’t play - maybe it’s because I’m too zoomed out but the chain noises aren’t there and neither are the brake sounds or building sounds. Unusual as those are what you should hear the most in the game and are what make the PC version so enjoyable. It runs pretty well but I would not recommend using a Magic Mouse as there is no middle button and zooms quite quickly. The game is running on a late 2012 Mac Mini with an Intel i& 2.3Ghz CPU and 4gbs of RAM.

It’s OK (1.0.1)
08/05/2014 11:38:00 3/5 By Crazy Robbie
When ever i try playing this game on my Late 2012, 27-inch iMac, Intel Core i7, 32 GB RAM, 3TB HD, Nvidia GeForce GTX 680MX 2048 MB RAM Or my 2011 Macbook i7, 16 GB RAM, 1TB SSD Upgraded. It will crash at anytime playing the game. I get into playing the game and make a cool looking park then it will end up crashing on me at any time… It will do this on both off my Macs giving me some error code sending me back to the desktop! My OS on both Macs is Mavericks. Is there any fix to this problem? Thank you

Just Crashed (1.0.1)
30/04/2014 23:30:00 1/5 By Deddington
Why did it just crash on me? I have a brand new 27 inch iMac with a 3.2GHz Intel Core i5 and 8Gb of memory, and yet it froze and then quite itself. How do I go about getting a refund Apple?!

EXELLENT (1.0.1)
29/04/2014 17:40:00 5/5 By Mohi50
This is way better than the PC version. on the PC it keeped crashing and quiting unexpectedly but on this it is super.

Brilliant game (1.0.1)
01/04/2014 13:09:00 5/5 By JoeWilliams255
This game is one of the best simulation games of all time apart from the sims. Love the graphics this game has, the detailed customers who visit the park and the overall aspect of the game in general. When playing the game I found no bugs or anything that would lower the game rating, performance was good and also the sounds was up to scratch… would definatly recommend this game to tycoon gamers.

working on 10.9.2 (1.0.1)

perfect (1.0.1)
24/01/2014 22:26:00 5/5 By DynamoDimond
Inceaping with the PC game, all the same stuff etc. It’s not much more high tech, just a mac version. which is all I want

If you want a complicated waste of money then buy this (1.0.1)
06/01/2014 21:40:00 1/5 By Themightylewis
The roller coaster tycoon games of old would drown this version in a river out of embarrasement because it is just that bad. This is definitely not a jump in and go game even for the experienced gamer who has played the roller coaster tycoon series before. The graphics are bad even when you turn them up to the highest setting and the game itself is over complicated. A A complete waste of money.

Very old and dated (1.0.1)
31/12/2013 07:42:00 2/5 By Tms1966
I really cannot get into this game. Close to 20 years ago, I was playing Sim City 2000, a game with better with better graphics and gameplay. I have owned my Mac for 5 years, and the quality of games available is slowly decreasing.

not very good (1.0.1)
28/12/2013 22:43:00 1/5 By jec1987
I bought this as it was in “top grossing”. It is virtually impossible to use on a MacBook. There is no right click so it is difficult to work. Zooming in and out is out of the question as you end up all over the place. Absolute waste of money. Would like my money back!

Great but... (1.0.1)

This game brings back so many memories and hours wasted away when I should be doing homework. Though there’s some issues I found when playing this on my MBP 2010 with Maverick: -No reflective water! Currently using the plain water effect since enabling this feature will make the water dissappear. -When mouse cursor hovers over the water, the water ripple effect is creates seem to be inverted so the ripple will move the opposite direction to the mouse. -Firework/laser/water fountain preview video window in the editor is missing. All you can hear is the firework noises but the window box is blank. -When creating waterslides for swimming pools, it’ll make a ripple effect in the pool but there isn’t a stream of water appearing from the slide to the pool. -Bloom is extremely bright when enabled. It looks like I’m looking directly into a torch. Though I rarely use this feature so I’m not sure if it’s meant to do that. Overall I like this game, but without reflective water really makes the game look tacky. Wish they can fixed this since it has been an issue since upgrading to newer OS or machines.

This game is everly so addicting, and now I can play it on my Mac? Hell, yeah! The only thing that's bad is sometimes the application closes when a pop-up comes. But, only happened once, so, hehe :) We can all forgive, we are the forgiving kind.
