Five years ago the thought of a vertical drop on a theme park ride was an unimaginable possibility. Never the less, it happened, and now, the world of theme parks is more terrifying than it ever was. Since the classic Theme Park game from the early nineties is now looking a little dated, Electronic Arts thought it would be a good idea to revamp it for the millennium, so without further a do, this is Theme Park World on next generation platform, PlayStation 2.

As its first outing in 3D format, Theme Park had to be rebuilt from scratch, giving it little relation with the original. While Rollercoaster Tycoon was a serious game created for enthusiasts, this edition incorporates some of the more fun elements of theme parks. After building a rollercoaster to your own specifications, you are given the chance to ride it in full 3D, giving players a better judgement of what makes a good ride. But beware, there are other instances you must consider as the owner of the park. You must incorporate your management skills to keep the park afloat, but also, you must make sure your staff are happy.

If you can put all features of the game into a balanced theme park, you can consider yourself a genius. Problems are always rife in the park, and as such, Theme Park world will give you a huge challenge. Good luck.
