MY THOUGHTS

I remember playing the very first RollerCoaster Tycoon game on PC back in the day. It was back in 1999 and it was one of the first PC games I had ever played and actually played for hours and hours.  I have also played RollerCoaster 1 and 2 so when I found out about RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures I just knew I had to get my hands on a copy for PC.

I have only played a couple of hours so far but I have been enjoying RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures.  

I played a tutorial park which is great to get the hang of the game. 

The Tutorial was very helpful because there are a few changes made from the previous games.

Then once I was ready I started my own park.  As you can see from the photo below, I haven't made my park more appealing looking yet but I am waiting until my park makes more money to add trees and other things. 



There are lots of rides, food stands, bistros, entertainers and so on to pick.  

Maybe it is just my old and slow laptop  but I found that the game freezes up or lags sometimes. 

All in all, I do like this game and I will be playing it some more for sure.

This game is good for all ages. 

I do recommend RollerCoaster Tycoon Adventures.

Justice League vs. The Fatal Five #MovieReview

Warner Bros. Home Entertainment provided me with a free copy of the Blu-ray I reviewed in this Blog Post. The opinions I share are my own.



From animation legend Bruce Timm comes an all-new DC Universe movie. The fate of the earth hangs in the balance when the Justice League face a powerful new threat - the Fatal Five! Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman seek answers as Mano, Persuader and Tharok terrorize Metropolis in search of budding Green Lantern Jessica Cruz.

You can purchase this in stores now. 

MY THOUGHTS

As you all know my husband and I are big DC fans and we have watched and reviewed pretty much every single animated movie that has been out in recent years.

We just watched this one last night and we both very much enjoyed it.  
The story is fantastic and it kept us entertained.  The animation and voice acting were fantastic as well.

We are both happy to have this one in our ever growing collection and just like all previous movies so far we will be watching this one again in the future. 

I do highly recommend.

I give this 5 out of 5.
