Summary: I put one star because I can't use it on any of my operating systems. It only works on Windows XP and various other early Windows software which I do not have. This isn't the seller's fault; I just didn't look at the requirements or anticipate this type of problem. My guess is it will work okay if you have the required software.
Summary: I am not a fan of Steam. To me it seems like a way to put more advertising in front of the consumer, which I personally just don't need. I also think our trend of less ownership of products by those who buy them, versus keeping things on someone's server is a bad idea. I didn't see any wording on this product that this was a Steam product. I wouldn't have bought it if I had. It's slow to load and puts the same ads up each time it loads.
Summary: I bought this a few days ago it was very very fast shipping since it was going from across the country when I installed it and loaded it up and started driving hundreds of tons of steel and freight the sounds and physics were just amazing! I also bought Cascades Crossin' addon for it which added lots more realisem to it, Guys this is NOT a GAME this is a SIMULATOR if you think driving trains is the easiest thing ever this is not the simulator for you because this...
Summary: This game has a large following and tons of support online. That said... I felt it was too limited. It seemed very limited in what a player could do. If I wanted to design my own track, or NOT play an adventure it was not worth the effort.
Summary: The original train simulator for PC and runs under windows 8. Still a great simulator for Windows but make sure you download the updates. People are still brining out add-ons for this product and they all work also.
