This game on the whole is fun and enjoyable to play MOST of the time, however with a bit more polish from the game developers the game could become enjoyable to play ALL the time.

The main thing that is stopping this game become great is bugs and hard crashes. While the developers have started fixing these bugs and crashes, you just can't help but feel the need to save the game before you do any milestones in career mode as it "Might" just crash and lose your progress. The other annoyance is the lag and frame rate drops. When making a large scale park for a career mode challenge you see the frame rate and lag start to occur.

Some of the features of the game you can also just tell was meant to be bigger in the Theme Park, for example pricing of items is cool but meaningless, adding extras is pointless. The security cameras being able to view each singular one is a cool option, but more could have been done.

However what I do like while being challenging and slightly frustrating is making coasters, riding the coasters and rides and the DLC packs are interesting and fun, I had hours of fun making the parks to meet the challenges and now at 100% completion the replay factor is still there with playing sandbox mode making your own coasters and re-creating some of the real life rides. The workshop is also really cool where you can download other peoples creations, this makes it fun to play and add different rides from real-life parks into one park.

If the bugs, glitches and occasional crashes could be fixed, this game could become an 8/9 out of 10, and with the additional DLC being interesting this means the game has some replay-ability.

While it’s a pleasure to sit on the sofa and meander through one’s epic theme park creation on the big screen, enjoying the sights and sounds of the rides, the crowds, the vendors and the scenery, actually building that park is still easier and vastly more efficient up close and personal on the PC with a mouse and keyboard.

If you’re a roller coaster aficionado, theme park sims don’t come much better than this. An incredible amount of work has gone into making Planet Coaster feel at home on console, and Frontier has done a commendable job of doing so without making sacrifices. It looks fantastic, performs admirably, and designing the park of your dreams has never been more enjoyable.

The effort gone into that is noticeable in every single menu and button press; nothing is restricted by the controller. Plus, the various modes and Frontier Workshop will mean that Planet Coaster: Console Edition on Xbox will have a long and healthy life on its newfound home.
