IGN writes: "3D Rollercoaster Rush makes up for the bizarrely lackluster original effort from Digital Chocolate. Why this was not the only version released, I have no idea. This is a vastly superior game. If you want a charming action-puzzle game with a dose of thrills, 3D Rollercoaster Rush fits the bill. I played it from front to back -- and if you download, I'm pretty sure you will, too".
