Top Critic Average
It's a few minor tweaks away from something special, and the same applies to Screamride as a whole. While there's nothing in Frontier's latest to make your stomach churn - with the possible exception of its honkingly awful dubstep soundtrack - there's not quite enough here to get your pulse racing either.
Screamride is a destructive roller coaster simulator filled with fun explosives and great creation tools.
Screamride has a pretty impressive roller coaster building suite and some satisfying destructible environments, but everything else - from the other gameplay modes to its presentation - is a total snore.
If only it had been considerably cheaper, or considerably bigger in scope, this could've been a fun ride, but as it is ScreamRide is not really worth the price of entry.
ScreamRide becomes less fun as the mechanics get more involved and the requirements to unlock new levels rise
ScreamRide is one of 2015's first great surprises
Screamride is good, destructive fun in spite of some frustrating limits on creation.
An original and addictive puzzle game that includes a terrific roller coaster builder - and plenty of user-generated content.
Screamride may not revolutionize the genre in a deep compelling way and it doesn't have strong multiplayer options, but it's pure entertainment and packs in as much content as a world-class amusement park. If you've been wanting a game that makes you scream "WHOO!", Screamride has just the ticket.
Screamride is a limited romp, but its core selection of minigames are fun to play. It's enjoyable for what it is, whether you have a creative mind or just want to blow shit up. I can see myself going back from time to time to top my best score -- I just won't be creating things for months on end.
