GOOD PURCHASE!

  • Summary: My husband has been sitting here playing this game, even currently, as i write this. His own words "I like it-a lot!" He is and his father are railroad enthusiasts with their own layouts, and assortment of model trains. I think this game is not geared towards action gamers and more towards thinker type gamers. He just informed me the tutorial is really cool and it covers everything from controls to how to build cities,move cargo and create strategy.

Better than expected!

  • Summary: My 8 year old son got this for Christmas and can't put it down. Mostly, he just like to put it in sandbox mode and build elaborate tracks with lots of different trains. True, the graphics could be better, IMHO, but I haven't heard any complaints from him. If you have a child that likes to build things and likes trains, I'd recommend this. It's a thinking game, though, and not really for the "shoot-em-up" or racing crowd.

Complex - But in a good way

  • Summary: While the graphics aren't much to look at and the learning curve for how to play is a bit steep, I found this game to be a much deeper strategy/simulation than it first appears. The simulation not only includes researching higher tech trains, but also upgrading cities, choosing city specialties, and planning specific train routes with multiple steps of cargo chains (ie. trees into lumber into furniture).

Not for young Children

  • Summary: I bought this for my 6 year-old son because he's a HUGE Thomas/Lionel fan. He loves to play in the "sandbox mode" because nothing costs. I'm not sure that he knows exactly what he's doing, but he loves it. This game isn't very easy to play, but my son absolutely loves it.

  • Summary: We bought this for our 10 yr old daughter and she really enjoys it. At first she was frustrated trying to lay the track but we quickly realized the icon was there to do it and she off and running....fun way for any train lovers to build a system.
