I just wish the game wasn't so limited as far as building coasters and scenery. I like to make coaster recreations. Last night I was recreating The Raven from Holiday World, but it's impossible to get the right banks with the game's limitations, so it doesn't look right. Same for The Legend ride. All but the kiddie coaster at Holiday World are wooden and there are no banking options for the wooden coasters on this game. There are with the steel coasters though. >:( <br />I wish there was a Roller Coaster Tycoon 4 game coming, but alas I know that there won't be. I love the series. I have all 3+ expansions.

Man, that's spot on!
Yeah, a RCT 4 is very unlikely…, we can always hope though ;)

This game plays just as good as on a Pentium 4 with a GeForce 8600GT than it does on an i7 with a GTX 680. LOL!
