RollerCoaster Tycoon 2: Time Twister
Following the unexceptional Wacky Worlds, this is the second Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 expansion pack to be released in the space of eight months. As such, completists are now looking at an outlay in the region of 70 quid, a princely sum that would comfortably cover a day out in a real Theme Park (or amusement park, as the box calls it, in an attempt to stress that this is no way a rip-off of Theme Park). Should you prefer to eschew the horrors of the general public in favour of the warmth and sanctity of your PC den, what do you get for your 20 notes? The answer is 14 new scenarios, loosely covered by a vague time-travelling theme. Futures and pasts are both covered, so expect to build such unlikely treats as your own Jurassic Park, a rollercoaster-oriented version of Woodstock, and a terrifying vision of a future world involving space rangers. The core game hasn't changed one iota from the initial release, and if you haven't played it for a while it's hard to actually see where the new scenarios have installed themselves, simply slotting in alongside the default ones (and those from Wacky Worlds). The Time Twister scenarios are all perfectly adequate, but the point is that there are home-made versions of comparable quality freely available on the Internet. As such, 20 quid for a few pretend dinosaurs doesn't seem particularly great value.
