Rollercoaster Dreams (PSVR)
Intro: Visit the amusement parks which are created by the players from all over the world. The players from all over the world will visit the amusement parks which are created by you. Rollercoaster Dreams will fulfill these dreams.
Review: Have you every wondered why there are so many VR roller coaster apps? It’s because people fear them, but would love to be brave enough to try them. On the real thing you can’t take your VR headset off if you don’t like it, you just have to sit there and hope you don’t pass out. And besides, it’s about time the PSVR got a good rollercoaster simulator. But is Rollercoaster Dreams a dream come true, or is it a nightmare?
The good news is Rollercoaster Dreams is not just a ride simulator, it is a theme park management game where you have to build things, look after guests (that look pretty creepy up close) and even build and maintain the rides. But there is nothing is too complicated here, in fact, some might say it is pretty shallow in just about every way. Strangely, everything that is wrong with this game does add to part of its charm and it made me smile on more than a few occasions, even laughing out loud a few times, but sadly it wasn’t happiness brought about by enjoyment of a ride, it was laughing at something silly or an epic fail in the game.
Verdict: Sadly I think this game tried to be everything but failed to be good at anything at the same time. It wanted to be a fully fledged VR theme park simulator, but with the low-quality graphics and poor controls it is hard to play, but worst of all is that some of the rides are not “VR Compatible”, but I suppose you can at build your own park as well as visit other people’s creations, so there is at least some joy to be found with that. I think the worse part is that as per usual with PSVR games it is vastly overpriced! If this game was just a quarter of the asking price it might have been worth buying, but at the price it is, it’s simply not worth it.
