Windows 8 is a no-no
25 July 2015
Summary: I love this game and everything about it. No problem with it at all, except that it's not very compatible with Windows 8. When I first got it, I had no issues but after a month or so, it starts crashing every once in a while.
Summary: Ordered this for my teen son. He loves trains. We actually got it when he was age 8 but lost the cd, so we repurchased it. He is much better able to use the game without help now than when he was younger. He says it is a "great game".
Summary: I personally think this is a great game. As far as the way it's played and the overall appeal. It is a perfect balance between performance and quality. You might get some games that are fast, but low quality and you might get other games that have beautiful graphics and art, but they're very slow.
Summary: Please don't let the title of my review fool you. It's just my opinion. Although I like strategy/tycoon simulators overall, this one has it's flaws, including tech support from Atari. The main flaws I found annoying are the terrain management - it's a bit limited, though playable.
Summary: I bought this game as I was looking for a fun railroad game and, after trying out demos of Rail Tycoon, etc, I purchased Locomotion.

I've seen a number of reviews giving 5/5 and a number giving 1/5 - I strongly advise you try the demo prior to purchasing...
Summary: Transport Tycoon and the original Rollercoaster Tycoon are always in my Top 10 list. Transport Tycoon, especially, was one of the games I constantly used to go back to, always keeping a backup of the original installation diskettes.
Summary: Hmmmm..the question is how to approach the game. I would almost like to do two separate reviews, so here goes. If you are a lover of the old Transport Tycoon games then you will love this. Basically because it is almost the same game and of course that can be the negative as well.
Summary: "you don't care about graphics and music at all, just care about gameplay." I'm sorry, but that's just retarded. Anyone who rates games just for graphics and music is just ... I'd say you get good gameplay, then if there's time you can toss in better graphics, and if there's even more time..
