Disney’s Coaster video review is online

Today, we have a game that might not be a game, but it’s game-like enough that I’m comfortable showing it as a part of Lazy Game Reviews! And that is the relatively forgotten classic, Coaster, by Code To Go and Walt Disney Computer Software. Aaaaaahhhhhh!

    I’m kinda surprised you didn’t mention the incredibly bad framerate for what was essentially wire-frame graphics. Even Stunts could maintain 20 FPS on low-end hardware, and it came long before this “game”!

    Though I never really got the fascination some companies had with releasing games that were simply meant to be POV rollercoaster simulations and nothing more. Then again, I was playing Descent when it was still brand new with no real sense of vertigo so maybe that has something to do with my opinion of such things. ^_^;

    • Perhaps I should have, but I figured it was pretty obviously crap so I just overlooked it. Since I mentioned that technically the “game” had been FAR surpassed by practically every other roller coaster designer since, I decided to focus more on the what else the “game” offers, in experience, humor, and the like. Not much, it turns out 🙂

    I’m quite impressed. You’ve also tackled Purple Saturn Day, another strange and unconventional game.

    A review of Captain Blood and El-Fish and your wacko game review quota will be filled for the rest of the decade.
