Summary: Scenarios not as good as Railroad Tycoon 2 Platinum Edition Not as many maps, not as many trains. It does handle selling stocks better. It also eliminates managers, otherwise the rules are pretty much the same as Railroad Tycoon 1. In short, minor improvements & less all around
Summary: This is not an updated version of RT2...it's a whole new game that doesn't work nearly as smoothly as its predecessor. The most basic function, track laying, is a challenge that, even after playing for quite a while, I still find very frustrating.
The developers confused "family friendly" with "childlike"

Summary: I was addicted to Railroad Tycoon 2, but unfortunately it wouldn't play under my new operating system. I was thrilled to find RT3 and eagerly awaited its delivery. Unfortunately, RT3 has lost much of the complexity and the underhandedness that made RT2 so much fun.
Summary: This game has great potential, make no mistake about it. The economic model is a great idea, it creates a much more immersive environment. Cutting out micromanagement in my opinion was also a great idea, but I guess that depends on whether you're a big picture strategy gamer, or the micromanaging...
Summary: Great graphics, awful gameplay i am really disappointed......the track laying routine blows, no signals!, no options to even do minor terrain leveling to smooth the bumps.....this is a major oversight and kills the game.
Summary: I Was looking for good railroad game, so I bought Railroad Tycoon 3. I found This game is pretty ordinary, at least, not as good as Sid Meier's Railroad. I would advice buyer to go for Sid Meier's Railroad than this
Summary: idea of the game and game play is second to non,but....the graphics let this down big time. i do play this game still which is due to the great way the interface for the company set up works, which is good fun. but when you return to the main screen its not good.
