OverviewOverview

Planet Coaster Console Edition is a pleasure park construction and management game. It draws on games like Theme Park and RollerCoaster Tycoon. You build different theme park rides and roller-coasters in considerable detail, to score design points and attract visitors.

The Sandbox Mode enables you to construct a park on an empty plot of land with all features and rides unlocked. The Challenge Mode restricts funds and sets targets for play. The Career Mode takes you through a series of objectives to evolve and develop your park.

The enjoyment is usually found in creating ever more fantastically, and ridiculous roller coaster rides that you can then experience in the first-person perspective.

Rated PEGI 3. This game offers players the opportunity to purchase in-game items in the form of additional content, which some parents or carers may want to be aware of. Parents, carers or other responsible adults should check to see what is being offered before making any purchase on behalf of a child. It should be noted that the game can still be played without the need to purchase such items.

Although rated for very young children, some content packs purchased separately have higher age ratings. For example, the Planet Coaster: Ghostbusters features mild violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to human like characters, violence that lacks any apparent harm or injury to fantasy or mythical beings and creatures and pictures or sounds likely to be scary to young children.

This expansion adds Ghostbusters’ themed rides and events, including a dark haunted house. Ghost and hellhounds are found that can be frightening to younger children. Players can shoot the ghosts who then disappear into thin air. There is also a menacing human-like character that gets shot by the Ghostbusters’ proton packs and reacts in a mild manner to this violence.

Skill Rating

10+ year-olds usually have the required skill to enjoy this game.
