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.
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.
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.
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.
Summary: I wouldn't waste my money on this junk. It looks likes something I played on an ancient 286--13 years ago! Not to mention that the manual (for the mac version) explains that one must use the right mouse botton to use certain features--but a mac does not have two mouse buttons.
Repeats all the mistakes of version 2 and adds more.

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.
Summary: Have had no chance to play the game itself, because the the (third party) software keeps telling me I have an out of date version of Flash. Even having madesure Flash was up to date it still wouldn't recognise it and you can't progress past that point.
Summary: NOTE: NOT FOR VISTA OR WIN 7. Having got this for the Mac, where it's pretty good, I wanted to try the Windows version too. Wont work under Vista or Win7 (I have explored upgraded / patches extensively - trust me, it won't run).
