Final Breakdown

Gameplay:

An excellent game in terms of gameplay with lots of cool places to build the parks, rides, shops, shows, and other features. The game should keep most people very busy with the management and different sizable land formations. Riding the rides that the player built are really fun. The only slight gripe about the game is that there isn't as much customizability to the rides as it would have been nice.

Graphics:

The graphics aren't really anything to write home about, but they are adequate for what is presented. The nice vivid color palette is fun to look at and see.

Sound and Music:

While nothing awesome, the sound effects and music are a nice touch to the environment of the game providing plenty of ambient noises that relate to how the park is feeling.

Multiplayer: N/A

Not open for evaluation because there really isn't a real multiplayer feature, just a compare and build feature.

AI and Difficulty:

The AI isn't the most stupendous feature in the world, but having the characters think on their own and be happy or sad really adds to the emotion of the game.

Controls and Interface:

The greatest and simplest controls and interface to learn. A player could pick up the game and learn it in about ten minutes, simplicity was in mind when designing the interface.

Overall:

An excellent game that should be picked up by fans of the genre. The only drawbacks of the game really are the average graphics and sound.
