  • Excerpt: This is the second review in a row that I’m going to mention a competing (of sorts) web site, which I’m sure thrills my editors, but I can’t help it. This is just weird.

  • Conclusion: when tracks are sprawled like so much spaghetti (with meatballs) across the map you have your work cut out for you.

  • Summary: As much play as "tycoon" has had in PC game titles over the last few years, it can be easy to forget that the term had another life before defining a game genre led by mass-market bestsellers like RollerCoaster Tycoon and Zoo Tycoon.
