(SNAPP Reviews aren’t really full-fledged game reviews as much as they are just a way for us to give you a quick “heads-up” on whether a game is good or not. It usually means that we haven’t finished the game yet, but have played a good enough chunk to know if it’s worth your time or money.)
It’s been years since I’ve played a Kairosoft game. I think I kind of burned myself out on them back when a new one was released every month or so. The last one that I tried was High Sea Saga and maybe it was due to the game being F2P, but it just didn’t have the magic that Kairosoft games had back in the day. Anyway, I decided to give Dream Park Story a shot. I wasn’t too happy with the 8 dollar price tag, but I’ve always been a fan of roller coaster/theme park builders, so I decided to go for it. Dream Park Story is pretty much what you think it is. A theme park management sim. It has all the Kairosoft charm that I knew and loved from their early games. Yes, the “magic” is back! There’s so much to build and tweak in this title to where I’ve spent hours upon hours and have barely scratched the surface. The game starts off fairly slow in the beginning. You’ll spend a lot of time staring at just a couple of rides, but if you make it into your 4th or 5th year, things really start picking up. There’s a lot to learn in Dream Park Story and unfortunately, Kairosoft doesn’t do the greatest of jobs showing you the ropes. So, there’s a lot of poking around and figuring things out for yourself. Kairosoft’s latest title may not be perfect, but it’s been one of my favorites so far. It’s all about theme preference with Kairosoft games. If you’ve played any of their games before, then you know what to expect. They are all close to the same thing. But, if you’re a fan of theme park sims and have never played a Kairosoft game, Dream Park Story is well worth your time and money.
