Conclusion: When I brought this product I was very disappointed, very hard to use and get the hang of, I could hardly understand what to do, and i just didn't enjoy it at all, I should have just stuck with Railroad Tycoon 2!
Summary: I bought this game thinking that this would be better than its DOS counterpart (Transport Tycoon)! I made a terrible mistake! This game is so boring... too rigid...(esp. rules like haul 2 loads of cotton to Miami and Memphis etc) and I would not even think of gifting it to someone! I would rather think about getting this game if I get the entire purchase amount as moneyback! Not worth a penny!
Summary: I am an IT professional so I know what I'm doing. I have a high end rig that plays any new game with ease. I have just spent 2 hours trying to get this to run and it doesn't. BEWARE!!!!! I have just emailed tech support. No 24 hr support. No 800 number. Nothing on their web site about any problems. I love RR2 and couldn't wait to get this. $50 mistake. Wait for resolution of the problems.
Summary: This program will not install on either of the two computers I own. Both far exceed the minimum requirements listed on the box. I took it back, obtained a new copy (thinking I had a bad install disk) and it did the exact same thing. I love the railroad tycoon games, but this one just does not work. If you buy it, beware.
Summary: The copy protection prevents installation on my machine. I am not alone. I have also read that there are problems for people who are able to get the program installed. I understand the problems with Piracy, but to put down big $ for a game that won't install is the worst.
