Windows 8 is a no-no

Jon, Amazon
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.

Cool for train buffs

  • 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".

Pretty good 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.

Great at first...

  • Summary: Love the concept, but it becomes incredibly tedious and redundant after a few hours of play. The micro-management of all the mechanical repairs take away from the enjoyment of the game. An automatic repair or replacement option should have been offered.

Great teacher for kids

rowphilsab, Ebay

  • Summary: My 7 year old daughter loves this game. She connects factories with rail. Connects towns with tram tracks and roads. Puts in airports, busses, trucks, boats, planes and all... It introduces her to the power and complexities real city officials and planners must feel.

Not the best from Chris Sawyer

E. Dumea, Amazon
5 September 2007
  • 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.

Takes some tinkering, but it's worth it

Bob Johnson, Amazon
30 August 2007
  • 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. If you've played any of the RCT games then you'll feel instantly at home, but whereas RCT was pretty simple right out of the box, Locomotion takes much more trial and...

Locomotion is a great blast from the past.

Sparky, Amazon
15 March 2007
  • Summary: Locomotion is a 'spiritual sequel' to Transport Tycoon, although this DOES NOT MEAN it is exactly the same, simply with a graphics update. Loco holds its own as its own game. 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...
