Roller Coaster Tycoon 3 Soaked Reviewed

Mac|Life has posted a new review of Soaked!, an expansion for Roller Coaster Tycoon 3. The expansion for the coaster building sim introduces more than 50 new rides and coasters as well as a large variety of water attractions. Mac|Life gave the game a score of 3 out of 5.

From the review:

RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 Soaked adds buckets and buckets of aquatic-themed attractions to the core RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 game, where you manage a theme park. Since itís an expansion pack, Soaked requires the original RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 game, which will set you back $49.99. Soaked gives you many more scenarios and options, including dolphin shows (who doesnít love a good dolphin show?), water slides, more intricate laser shows, and even basic changes to the original game, such as the ability to build roller coasters with tunnels. Soaked doesnít fundamentally change RollerCoaster Tycoon 3 - the game interface is as waterlogged as ever - but fans of the first game will easily appreciate the additions.

While expansion packs for other games sometimes only add new levels to a game, Soaked adds an entire theme. We liked building water slides that twist and tumble through parks, although the construction tools are unintuitive and slow to respond - instead of just drawing the path of a ride, users tediously click between sections of track, choosing from different angles and shapes. We also like Soakedís sandbox mode, with unlimited funds and no pressure to make a profit or satisfy your virtual visitors. In this mode, simulation micromanagers can try eight new scenarios to build up a park from humble roots, controlling everything from employee wages to the pool cleaner of choice.
