Thrillville Off the Rails 

 

The rating of an E10+ and descriptors (Fantasy Violence, Mild Lyrics, and Mild Suggestive Themes) may send a lot of families running away from Thrillville Off the Rails. The WMG can certainly understand that opinion, however there are some shining moments in this home console video game. Thrillville Off the Rails appears on the Wii, Playstation 2, Personal Computer, and Xbox 360. Family Friendly Gaming reviewed the Wii version (editor there are also hand held versions on the PSP, and DS but they have fundamental differences from the console version). The player gets to pick their character, go through a small tutorial, and then manage the amusement park. Getting to play any game, and ride any ride is one of the benefits of this game.

Thrillville Off the Rails has a bright and colorful look to it. There are female characters dressed in a revealing way. The WMG noticed the violence is only in certain mini games and generally light. Getting to ride the different roller coasters is a really awesome feature.

Thrillville Off the Rails has some good songs, and some not so good songs. Toby Mac can be heard in this game, and that is very welcome here at Family Friendly Gaming. Teenage characters can flirt with the opposite sex, and try to play match maker. Some of the lines are very corny, and rejection responses can be cruel. This can be avoided by playing an adult character, but worth bringing to the surface.

There can be hours of replay in Thrillville Off the Rails. There are thirty mini games, multiple parks, rides, and interaction that players can easily be kept busy with Thrillville Off the Rails for months. You have to enjoy managing, and doing things like putting in bathrooms.

The control scheme in Thrillville Off the Rails works great on the Wii. There is a lot of fun to be found in this game, especially with the rides. Thrillville Off the Rails does a good job of what it does, and offers quite a few different options in the park design. There is some humor in the little cut scene movies.

The WMG may have dumped on this game over a few issues, but still found it to be an enjoyable experience. Sequels should remove the whole flirting section, and focus on the fun of the amusement park. Thrillville Off the Rails comes with a claim that it is the sequel to the #1 Family Game of 2006. FFG could not find out the NPD link to that, but can see where that came from, even if the WMG disagrees with such a claim.
