If you look back fondly on titles such as Theme Park and Rollercoaster Tycoon then maybe you'd enjoy a nostalgic dip into the rather enjoyable Thrillville: Off the Rails.
Ebuyer are currently leading the deal pack with an asking price of just £6.49. The next best comes in at £9.99 from Coolshop, so you can make a decent £3.50 saving.
Off the Rails is one of those rare "family friendly" titles that adults may actually wish to play for more than ten minutes before they want to gouge out their own eyeballs. It's simple enough for kids to enjoy but also packs in plenty of fun that anyone can appreciate. As well as offering a decent rollercoaster editor, and theme park management gameplay, there is also huge selection of minigames to tackle. A Wii game that boasts mini-games? What madness is this? ...Thankfully the games on offer here are actually entertaining and gratifying.
The graphics are nothing special and there can be the odd framerate issue from time to time, the soundtrack is horribly repetitive and there's nothing particularly challenging or cerebral about the game but everything works well and it's easy to lose hours in building your park and then roaming around it --everything you create can be ridden on or played with.
This Thrillville title is unlikely to leave you breathless but for the mini price that EBuyer are asking, this is a ride that's well worth taking.
