Been a while since I posted on this game. They recently updated the game and gave player the ability to turn off scenery collision. The game can still be very fiddley and time consuming to really theme up an attraction. Once done, things look great though. There are a lot of youtube videos of attractions that people have made. This person has some pretty neat Disney attractions.
I don't see this kind of game working on console. Frontier (developers of PC and RCT3) once tried bringing a theme park simulator to consoles with the Thrillville series, but it was extremely limited and ended up being not very good. Though controls were only just one issue with those games.
After all this time, I still can't really latch on to and play Planet Coaster like I did with RCT3 (which I keep going back to). The park management aspects are still rather poor and I find building things rather convoluted.
Sorry for the bump, but in the last few months I've finally started to click with this game. I'm understanding more and more the mechanics and how to make things work well and look good. At this point I dare say it's overtaken RCT3 as my favorite.
Plus the fact that new DLC keeps coming out and Frontier announced Planet Zoo means more reason to keep coming back.
