Looks as dreadful as ever, though probably not as insulting as RCT World is. I remember when this series was actually good. This has to be one of the most mishandled video-game series in existence.

No Lines for rides is just such a turn off for me.

Screw it, RCT is dead. Bring Planet Coaster to consoles.

Again, like I said before, that won't be happening with how Planet Coaster operates and demands in terms of CPU power. Even my beastly rig has issues with building vastly large parks and containing 2k+ guests. Current gen, let alone next gen don't have a hope to handle something as large as that. I consider Planet Coaster to being the Crysis of PC games, in terms of CPU demands.
