Doesn't work on Windows 8

afried01, Amazon
4 March 2015
  • 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.

Not Impressed.

jerriemarie, Ebay
13 September 2014
  • 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.

Not for Vista, win7 or win8

Gamer Dude, Amazon
15 May 2013
  • Summary: This is old software intended for older versions of windows including 95, 98, me, and 2000. It will not work on newer machines if at all. I even tried it on an old XP machine with the same results as the other reviewer. It promts you to insert a cd when there is no cd to insert. In all I give this program a hardy two thumbs down. In short, don't waste your money.

It does not work !

Gerry Pellegrini, Amazon
15 March 2013
  • Summary: Once installed, I could not play it becuase the PC would tell me to install the CD - which was already installed. I tried to use another PC, with the same result. A friend of mine who is an expert technicialn found a patch to allow me to play the game without reinserting the CD, once installed. But the game did not allow the controls to be used, I finally had to turn off the PC.... I think I bought a piece of junk.

Two identical discs

John R, Amazon
5 October 2005
  • Summary: This is a warning to buyers of the Atari re-release of this game: I purchased it recently, and during install, learned that the two install discs are identical. Worse, they are marked disc one and disc two. But the contents of the discs are the same and cause the software to fail installation. Be prepared for this trouble.

Completely unrealistic train operation!

"blackhawk0221", Amazon
23 August 2001
  • Summary: Does anybody really think that a 40 car train can accelerate "uphill" under "idle" conditions with the dynamic brakes fully applied on both diesel power units? Well...apparently the Microsoft developers of this game think so! Very plainly put...the controls, especially the braking controls, do not work the way they do in a real locomotive!
