I think they're trying to say it's an older game and hence older PCs (or laptop, which is almost always a few rungs below desktop) can run it fine. This is a decent price but it's worth digging around as in my experience RCT3 is often found in bundles... I'm pretty sure I have it somewhere myself, actually.

Lol Game for laptop.. Hahahahahahah A marketing ploy to shed lots of older titles ..

Probably, yes. On the other hand, a lot of older games play on laptops that can't handle current titles, and the "Games for Laptops" might relate to a No CD version of the title?

£5.95 on Amazon

I would guess the "Games for Laptop" slogan relates to games that are 2D only and can run on a basic graphics card without 3D acceleration. Probably trying to cash in on the netbook craze at the moment.

..that's what i was looking at it for, but i can't find out anywhere if it needs the CD to run the game, as obv a netbook doesnt have a CD/DVD drive (have an external drive to install it but dont want to drag that everywhere with me) :thinking:

RCT 3 is 3D and from what i remember its quite the resource hog. There's no way an integrated graphics solution could run this. Great game though, way too addictive!

On amazon someone made this review:

"Be aware that this game comes in the form of VERY SMALL CD'S & as I have a laptop which has a cd slot rather than a CD tray the game wont play. Amazon need to let people know this. Disappointed as I order this back in Feb & it kept getting pushed back. I have to send this back now.

My rating is purely based on the game as I do know it's very good having played it years ago, this review is just to let people know this item is delivered in the form of VERY SMALL CD'S."

Dont know if this helps anyone!
