Planet Coaster Classic Rides Collection Review

While just about every ride or attraction in Classic Rides has some utility to park designers looking for that one, very specific element, overall this pack feels a little thin in comparison to some of Planet Coaster’s more robust DLC.

Jurassic World Evolution Review

While there have been Jurassic Park video games in the past, Jurassic World Evolution by Frontier Developments is the best logical design choice for a game based on the Michael Crichton series. A fun twist on the amusement park management genre, the game lets you channel your inner Hammond to spit in the eye of God as you manufacture dinosaurs with all the cold efficiency of an automated assembly line.

ScreamRide

ScreamRide is a pleasant surprise. What’s more, it was developed by Elite: Dangerous studio Frontier Developments. As it turns out, they're adept at both space simulation and theme park design. The theme park creator is a great way to kill a few hours completing the game’s tracks to earn higher points, trophies, and additional track pieces. Player-made amusements add some life to the game and, like Minecraft before it, it’s also fascinating to see what ingenious things people come up with. Like real rollercoasters, those sensitive to motion sickness will want to tread lightly, especially with the first-person view mode. It’s one thing to design a ridiculous vomit comet that betrays the laws of gravity and physics, it’s another thing entirely to witness your horrible creation from the view of those digital avatars forced to endure it.
