Not worth it.

Brian, Amazon
15 November 2012
  • Summary: I bought the game based on the positive reviews, and after believing it would be more realistic than the Sid Meier's version. I regret it very much. The learning curve is too high, and it seems you have to have an MBA to understand the stock market function. The interface is confusing as well. I don't mind learning to play a game, but not when it becomes too much of a hassle and too distracting.

Rip Off

Robert Day, Amazon
15 February 2011
  • Summary: If you think you are getting a original game by the Gathering, forget about it. What they send you is a british copy of the game from Sold Out productions. This is less than a honest business. Do not buy from them.

third party copy

3 Cents, Amazon
29 June 2010
  • Summary: The disks I received are not from PopTop. Instead it's by "SoldOut Software". When trying to install, it wants to install a bunch of unrelated stuff, but doesn't want to install the game itself. Took a lot of effort to figure out what's going on and had to go directly into the lower directory which contained the original game to install manually.

Won't run on Vista basic

Huskerfan, Amazon
16 December 2008
  • Summary: Railroad Tycoon 3 won't run on Vista basic. I've downloaded four patches and nothing works. Vista will open the game to the menu for a few seconds and then the menu disappears and a message appears that says, in effect, the game won't run. Big bummer.

Repeats all the mistakes of version 2 and adds more.

Deinonychus, Amazon
12 June 2005
  • Summary: Having logged hundreds of hours playing previous Railroad Tycoon games I couldn't wait to get the latest. Unfortunately I was greatly disappointed on several levels. It fixes none of the problems with RR Tycoon 2 and adds a bunch more. If you want a real railroad feeling or care anything about real trains get the original Railroad Tycoon or Railroad Tycoon 2. They are both better that this version. 1.

Not As Good!

Sawste, Play.com
11 August 2004
  • 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!

Boring!

Cameron Scholtz, Amazon
12 December 2003
  • 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!

Another bad install

Cameron Scholtz, Amazon
6 November 2003
  • 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.

WON'T INSTALL

Amazon Customer "wileyt", Amazon
3 November 2003
  • 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.

WARNING! Copy Protection Scheme prevents installation

Amazon Customer "wileyt", Amazon
3 November 2003
  • 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.
