Critic Reviews for Planet Coaster

Despite lacklustre management options, Frontier creates one of the finest park construction simulators yet.

While it may not be an amazing capitalism simulator, Planet Coaster is a fantastic theme park-building sandbox that rarely ever took an idea I had and told me, "No, you can't do that."

Better than RollerCoaster Tycoon World, but doesn't do much to innovate on the formula.

The best theme park sim of the modern era, even if a few underdeveloped elements mean it's not quite the ultimate roller coaster ride yet.

This is as close as you can get to visiting an actual theme park without leaving your home

Planet Coaster is an exemplary amusement park management simulation with fantastic construction tools and a wealth of high-quality user-created content.

For better or for worse, there just isn't a lot of depth in Planet Coaster. There are a ton of options, however. The process of coming up with coaster ideas and seeing them executed is wonderful, even if the building process is a bit janky. There's not much to challenge the player after they build a self-sustaining park, so this is definitely an experience for those who can challenge themselves to always think and dream bigger.

Planet Coaster isn't just a wonderful game, it's an important one. It's effectively resurrected a dead genre, providing an act to follow that is as inspiring as it is fun to play. At a reasonable price point, it's a great pick-up for anyone who enjoys the process of creation and management.
