PROS

  • Good looking 3D visuals.
  • Easy to use controls.
  • A few solid game modes to play, including a vs. developer challenge.

CONS

  • The gameplay is very repetitive and may get boring after a while.
  • While the game tracks themselves vary slightly, the backgrounds do not.
  • Game sound is a bit muddy in quality.

VERDICT

The game’s fun for a few plays, but due to the repetitive elements, there isn’t too much to keep you interested. This game is not worth the current price.

3D Rollercoaster Rush Jurassic puts players in control of a rollercoaster as you race through a series of different tracks. Players must adjust the speed of the rollercoaster in order to maximise the enjoyment of the patrons riding. Your goal is to complete all tracks and get as many stars as you can.

Players control the cart speed by either tilting the iPhone or using their finger to adjust the speed level on the left of the screen. Players must slow down when travelling up a ramp and speed up when going down to maximise the patron thrills and earn more stars. You must also adjust speed to get as many bonus thrills without crashing the cart, such as landing a huge jump safely.

The visuals are well done and the environments look great in full 3D. The sound and music quality is a bit poor, but players can use their iPod instead, which is a far better alternative. There are a number of different game modes, including multiplayer, time races, and the career mode.

3D Rollercoaster Rush Jurassic is a good game, but not great. While the different game modes and easy controls make the game enjoyable, the repetitive gameplay and levels along with poor sound tend to damper the gaming experience. And sadly, these are not issues that can be fixed with a patch. If you are unsure about this one, go with the lite version as it’ll be more value for your money than the full game is.
