Probably his last work

  • Summary: Locomotion is a game that is designed to accomadate the rare patient people who enjoy to watch and imagine train glory. I played the demo, and from that it seemed to be a jungled mess of trains and other stuff go this and that way, too advanced controls, and he seemed money hungry for this one,(his...

Very Derivative

John P Bernat, Amazon
21 August 2005
  • Summary: This game offers almost nothing beyond what "Transport Tycoon" had. There are no VR effects, few changes to the economic engine, and it's buggy as heck. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!

A real disapointment

Carlin R. Buchanan "Trifler", Amazon
11 September 2004
  • Summary: I bought this game based on Chris Sawyers reputation and my enjoyment of games of this type, but when I installed it I was stunned. This game uses the exact same graphics engine as Rollercoaster Tycoon 1!

Disappointment

Homer, Amazon
11 September 2004
  • Summary: As a strategy fan, I can generally accept a clunky interface and sub-standard graphics, but in this case they've ruined the game for me. Laying track/roads is very cumbersome and maddening. Routing is no picnic either.

Locomotion???

  • Excerpt: Locomotionis made by atari and is a great game for the tycoon. It is a sequal to Transport tycoon which i can say or though simple graphics and the need to use DOS is one of my all time favourites.
  • Pros: A new version of Transport Tycoon
  • Cons: Lacks addictiveness

Decent Escapism for the Odd Hour or Two

Shroud, Ciao
24 January 2007
  • Excerpt: Having played Chris Sawyer's Rollercoaster games, this game did not quite impress so much. It is however, a huge hit when played alongside my 5 and 3 year old children. They love watching the trams and trains bustle by, picking the livery colours, and such.
  • Pros: scenario editor, diferent levels of play, varied landscapes, and different time periods
  • Cons: engine does not place industries in logical proximities and vehicles can act irrationally

RUNS OUT OF STEAM...

  • Summary: Fails to play without the screen turning into some hideous ancient Spectrum like game after a short time. There does not seem to be a patch for this either.

Inadequate Successor to Transport Tycoon

Mr Fahaji, Amazon
5 December 2005
  • Summary: I used to play Transport Tycoon a lot when I was younger. A great game, I have recently had cravings to play it again. I discovered Locomotion, and on hearing that it was the 'Spiritual Successor' to Transport Tycoon, I had to purchase - at only £10 it seemed worth the punt.

La Minogue isn’t wiggling her bum…

Morgenhun..., Ciao
24 October 2004
  • Excerpt: Having played Transport Tycoon for the best part of a decade – I think I started playing in around January 1996, the question of whether or not to purchase the “spiritual sequel" was a pointless – of course I would, not least because the game had an inflation busting EUR 19.90 price tag - I'd...
  • Pros: More transport, more opponents, more music, more tycoonery .  .  .
  • Cons: Some scenarios are exceptionally easy, still some very silly AI
