Top Critic Average
ScreamRide is a decent game that could have been much better, but it is still worth owning just for the sandbox alone.
In the end, ScreamRide proves to be fun in short doses. The four modes are quite entertaining if you love some chaos with your fun, though Engineering has some nasty difficulty spikes toward the end. The game is light on original content, but the leaderboard and many extra quests help give it legs, and the user-made creations give it some longevity. The presentation may be a little underwhelming, but few will mind since it provides such a distinct experience on the console. Gamers who are looking for something just a little different should check out ScreamRide.
ScreamRide is thrilling, addictive, fun, enjoyable, well-crafted, rewarding, challenging, and has the potential to go on to be a long and successful franchise. It isn't just about holding on to your hat as you fly down a vertical drop, building the biggest coaster you can, or trying to hold on to your lunch as you hit an inversion at 120mph. There's thought, the tools for a community to spring up around it, and lots of longevity here, and at really is only some very minor niggles that stops ScreamRide from picking up perfect marks.
ScreamRide's three modes and robust design suite are briefly entertaining, but the fun doesn't last. Lacking soul and connective tissue, this minigame collection never quite gels or comes together into anything particularly memorable.
ScreamRide's fun is fleeting as the collection of mini-game physics puzzles recycles its material. The game has some solid mechanics, but is a shallow experience overall.
Screamride is simple and a lot of fun, especially for those with patience and desire to design an attraction. Testing and playing with the default mountains is fun, but there is nothing like exploding your creativity and building an attraction from scratch. The future of this title is promising, but the community will decide if the creation of attractions will pay off. If you are looking for fun without ties and put your imagination to the test, do not hesitate to give this installment a try and share with the world the roller coaster of your dreams.

With a host of game modes, some of which are more addictive than others and slick controls for most part, ScreamRide is a fun bundle of gaming goodness. Until the bigger games hit the Xbox One, rest assured this is more than enough to keep you suitably entertained.
If you love coaster creation, you're going to enjoy ScreamRide. If you love destroying things and watching buildings crumble, well, you'll also enjoy ScreamRide; but, you should probably seek help.
There is fun to be had with ScreamRide's creation tools, but it's buried under a long slog of uninteresting gameplay modes and the faintest hints of a narrative.
This is such a different kind of game from most of the stuff we've seen lately, however, that it feels distinct.
