Planet Coaster - A World Dedicated to Riding the Rails Create and Customize Endless Rides

Introduction: Roller Coasters Galore

Fans of simulator games know all too well the satisfying feeling of building something epic in-game. Well, Planet Coaster takes that experience to the next level!

This video game from the developers over at Frontier Developments plc brings a fresh take on the classic simulator game, Roller Coaster Tycoon. Explore, create, and share your coasters like never before. There are several game modes as well as new online play, offering plenty of ways to enjoy Planet Coaster!

Concept: Build, Manage, and Share

Often Roller Coaster Tycoon is regularly hailed as a cult classic of simulator games. Planet Coaster takes everything from its predecessor and builds on it, pun intended. The concept behind the game is all about creation.

Get wild and wacky with your ideas in the sandbox

Hop over to the campaign for more structured play. Both offer endless creativity through building and experimenting, but in very different ways.

The single-piece snap creation affords tons of customization, ensuring that your coaster can indeed be unique. This fluid, easy to access roller coaster building game earns a 5/5 for its straight forward, addictive concept.

Graphics and Audio: Accurate Theme Park Sounds and Sights

Bright, flashing rides accompany the thrilling shrieks of your park goers.

Wide, open spaces are waiting for you to build the next big attraction. Filling in these empty areas creates a level of customization, even in your park design. The graphics are available in full UHD and 4K for that extra visual oomph.

Everything about this game is visually pleasing. The roller coasters are vibrant and lively. Follow along the tracks as you build, zooming in or out as needed. Once finished, experience your rides in the first or third person views.

All of these visual options make the graphics in Planet Coaster top-notch.

As if its hard-hitting graphical capabilities weren't exciting enough, the sounds are also incredibly realistic. People's screams of joy (and maybe a bit of terror!) echo through your park while the chugging and hissing of various rides ring out.

The graphics and audio are all very immersive, earning a 5/5 for their stellar realism and ability to keep the thrills of theme parks alive and well in-game.

Gameplay: Become a Master Coaster Builder

As we've already mentioned, there are several game modes for exploring. The campaign teaches you the ropes and then sets different challenges to accomplish. Completing these rewards, all types of new unlocks, such as rides, concessions stands, and other attractions to add to your park.

Additionally, there is the sandbox. Put your skills and knowledge to the test with this no-holds-barred, physics-defying mode. You can even post your wildest creations online, and share them with the Planet Coaster community! Let your imagination run wild and create the coaster of your dreams.

Simple, intuitive menus are organized by attraction type, as well as plenty of choices for setting up paths and transportation for your park guests. The sky is the limit in Planet Coaster's 5/5 execution.

Conclusion: Roller Coaster Tycoon's Worthy Sequel

Planet Coaster is not only the spiritual successor to the beloved simulator game. It takes customization to the next level, as well as provides a whole new set of challenges in its campaign mode. The online sharing feature creates a fantastic community full of creativity. Fans of building simulators will want to give this one a try!

TL/DR

Planet Coaster is a roller coaster simulator with many modes of play and online co-op fun!
