"It's fun to lay out track and watch the trains run."

November 23, 2007  |  By testerb

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

Great environment for laying out track and watching your trains run here and there. You can build bridges and tunnels. You can buy other industries in town or cities you want to see grow.

The "game"aspect of this simulation isn't all that great but it is the neatest "build something" game I've seen.

Cons

More than anything, this game has the feel of one that is only about halfway complete. It is riddled with little things, and a few larger ones, things that would have been worked out if more time had been put into it. It seems they quit developing far too soon.

"Constantly crashes"

Pros

Received this from my son for Father's day.

Cons

Too bad I can't give it 0 stars.

Game won't run, tech supports answer is to turn off programs except for explorer.exe and systray. Even then the game doesn't work, 2kgames answer "well theorically it should run". Well REALLY it does. The longest I've been able to run the game is for about 6 minutes.

Don't waste your time or money.

Seems just like the original but with updated graphics. Loved Railroad Tycoon, too bad Railroads can run.

"Dissapointment"

February 05, 2007  |  By Helpless_writer

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

It looks nice even though its cartoony graphics

Cons

Unless your a serious Sid fan you should not get the demo... I liked Civilization and though i should try his railroad series i started off with the 3rd and i must say it seems that w/o tutorial you may get lost since it seems he did an overhaul... again in my opinion unless your like a big fan of his i don't see why you should buy or demo it.
