The graphics are nothing amazing, but are nice enough to look at. Really the only complaint I have is that all the guests look exactly the same except for different shirts and pants. Everything else is good enough though. Sound is wonderful, and sounds exactly as you would expect for a Theme Park game. You'll hear the music for rides, as well as the murmer of the people walking by, and a few random sounds here and there. There's always room for improvement, but the sound is good enough. The gameplay is great, simple as that. You build up you're own theme park with rides, stalls, and scenery. There are plenty of rides to be build, some of which (namely roller coasters) you can actually build the tracks for (which is hours of fun in itself). There are different missions to play, which are mainly just, "Get X amount of guests in X years with a park rating of X". They're not really challenging, which really lets you just have fun with the different maps, and building different kind of parks. Anyone who likes tycoon games would do well to get this game. It truly is one of the best tycoon games out there, and will provide lots of fun. I would recommend just about anyone to get Roller Coaster Tycoon!
