Probably his last work

Joshua "Know the what they don't want you to ..., Amazon

  • 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 insanely short demo...). I had little hope for this game, and I was right, now no longer available in stores across the US,(not even in thriftstores).

Very Derivative

  • 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!

Disappointment

Homer, Amazon

  • 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. There is probably great gameplay buried in the game but the poor graphics and construction hassles will prevent me from ever finding it.

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! A lot of people didn't like the fact that Rollercoaster Tycoon 2 used the same graphics as the first one, but here we are years later in a totally different game and it's still the same.

Locomotion - A disappointment

Skilleter, Ciao
20 October 2004
  • Excerpt: "...play. Locomotion may be the first Chris Sawyer production to fail to live up to its author's reputation. Around 10 years ago, Mr. Sawyer produced the transportation simulation Transport Tycoon which ran under MSDOS, not Windows and is still very playable today, if you can find a computer old enough to run it. You have to build roads, railways, buses, lorries and attempt to make a fortune supplying the needs of towns and industries. He then ...
  • Pros: Cheap, quite fun to start off with .
  • Cons: Dated, frustrating, unrealistic, disappointing, a bit buggy

Ett spel som var gammalt redan som nytt

  • Excerpt: Ett transport simuleringsspel från 2004 Spelidé Hela idén bakom detta spelet är att man skall bygga upp ett transportnätverk med bussar, flygplan, tåg eller båtar och flytta passagerare, råvaror eller post och på så sätt tjäna pengar så man kan fortsätta att expandera ens transportföretag. Man har andra företag som kämpar mot en och detta är grunden för spelet. Bygg upp ett fungerande transportföretag med samma tanke som Railroad Tycoon eller Transport Tycoon.

Locomotivation ?!?

Hollgo, Ciao
20 August 2012
  • Summary: Manche Spiele sind auf der Grundlage "echter" Klassiker aufgebaut, manche Spiele geben vor, solcherlei Spiele zu sein - nur wenige Spiele sind wirklich neu und als "innovativ" einzustufen. "Locomotion", das 2006 vom "Transport Tycoon"-Designer Chris Sawyer mit entwickelte Wirtschafts-Logistiksimulationspiel möchte jedenfalls ein solches Spiel sein, welches auf einer "Tradition" bekannter Vorgängerspiele, die nach vergleichbarem Muster gestrickt sind, aufbaut.
  • Pros: +  formal eigentlich eine komplette Logistiksimulation
  • Cons: -  eine schwache Grafikengine vermiest funktionsbedingt eine Menge Spielspaß
