Game Review/Rant: Rollercoaster Tycoon 4 Mobile

Here’s the game/review to make me SNAP! I didn’t think it was possible, but Amazing Spider-Man 2 broke MovieBob after all. So, enjoy my drunken angry rant!

Well, let it be known that I do not turn down requests… and ya know what? After I posted my comment, people still wanted me to do it anyway. To those who follow me via Tumblr, Twitter, WordPress, and beyond; I love you guys! I do this for you! But, I dunno… this is a test for me. Well, after I drink a sufficient amount of alcohol, let’s check out the 4th numbered installment of the world building franchise of Rollercoaster Tycoon!!

Lemme first babble about the series I loved! Way back in 1998, Chris Sawyer (the dude who made Railroad Tycoon) wanted to branch out his brand and nabbed a deal with Hasbro to make a Theme Park version of his successful classic Tycoon series! As such, a wonderful empire building series was born! After the third game, which resulting in a metric fuckton of legal shit, Sawyer vanished somewhere into the aether! Some time later, we were treated to the sadly sub-par 3D remake on the 3DS, which tried to add an awkward story element to the series. Luckily, the RCT2 Community already did this and did it much better! It was called the UCES! For those out of the loop, it was a fan-based expansion pack for the second Rollercoaster Tycoon game and it was glorious! The story was kinda existent, but who cares? You’re here to make cool theme parks! But, after RCT 3D came and went, what then? There was nothing! The 3DS remake bombed and we would likely never see another game again. Fast forward early this year, I hear about a 4th game! “Imagine that”, I thought! Whelp, I finally got the chance to dive deeper! MORE AFTER THE JUMP!!!
