not that great

Summary: Its pretty good, but I can't find the track editor on it, I'm not even sure that it has the track editor. The graphics of everything but the train are kind of crappy. Also your the only train that is on the track. There are no underground sub-way tracks. It doesn't have the japaniese bullet train, and the controls are kind of glitchy. I think you should wait until the new one comes out next year, instead of buying this one.
Summary: Train Simulator is an enjoyable game, but I think train enthusiasts will really get the most out of it. Others will probably find it interesting, but won't find it worth the investment. The game is nicely put together. The tutorials take you through learning how to drive each of the train types and give you enough information to get started without having to touch a manual.
Summary: Kuju entertainment developed this game for Microsoft, and it lives up to its name. You can explore six different historical railroads, including Amtrak's Northeast Corridor, Burlington Northern's Marias Pass route, and a section of the Orient Express in Austria. Two Japanese lines and the Flying Scottsman are also available. The graphics are beautiful and the sounds are faithfully reproduced.
Summary: I bought Train Simulator because my 4 year old boy is a train nut, and I thought he would enjoy it. Unfortunately the experience of using Train simulator is not all that compelling, although various visual aspects of the game are impressive. I had a lot of trouble installing the game -- you'll need a newish graphics card in your machine.

Summary: I have XP Home Edition and the program works fine. This is not the game I expected, though. I was looking for a game more like Sid Meir's RR Tycoon. This game is all about driving a train and not building a city and train. I am not a train enthusiast but this game is fun none the less (thank goodness for the strategy guide.
Excerpt: Train simulator è un prodotto che può o non può piacere, dipende ovviamente dai soggetti! se si parla di grafica come gioco può essere anche considerato un buon gioco ma per quanto riguarda la giocabilità...bhè lascia un pò a desisderare! sembra quasi che sia stato fatto per vedere i bei scenari e non tanto nella simulazione di un treno. Per quanto riguarda le missioni consistono solo nell'andare da una stazione all'altra semplicemente fermandosi ...
