  • Summary: This game program is not compatible with Windows 8. I am sure it would be exactly what I wanted if it worked.

Meh...

Smarkley, Amazon
23 February 2013
  • 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. It does stuff that doesn't make much sense, all the time. Bottom line is, if you're looking for the next version of RT2, this isn't it.

Great Series but now too old

Pappy Boyington, Amazon
11 October 2004
  • Summary: I was a HUGE fan of Tycoon 2 and bought #3 a while ago, just never got to it and assume it is as good if not better, but there is no resolution to the lack of Windows 7 compatibility. I had to upgrade from XP so I lost the chance to play it, and if no patch supports windows 7 and you plan to go to 7, then do not buy this as it states Windows 7 is not compatible and there are NO patches. I only could get 1.05 patch and 1.06 does not help.

Railroad Tycoon 3

Robert W. Noxon, Amazon
11 October 2004
  • 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.

The developers confused "family friendly" with "childlike"

Charlene Vickers, Amazon
11 October 2004
  • 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. For example: - in RT2, only industries or resources inside your station's field of influence would be serviced by your trains.

Unbalanced and unfinished

Amazon
20 November 2003
  • 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 control freak. The new 3D engine looks cool, even though graphics are secondary in strategy games.

Not that great.

KieranJH, Play.com
11 August 2004
  • Conclusion: After hearing quite a few people say that this was a good game, i thought i would give it a go. I had previously played Railroad Tycoon 2 which at it's time was a good game. Sadly for me RT3 was a big let down, while the 3D graphics were better than the previous game, that was in my opinion all that was good, and i only recall trying it out the once for about half an hour then that was it.

Strictly a business sim

Zachary A. Phelps "xxerdocxx", Amazon
12 December 2003
  • Summary: I've been a big fan of the Roller Coaster Tycoon games, in which the gameplay is centered on the fun of developing an amusement park and getting to see the rides in action, with the business-oriented "goals" for each scenario being kind of an afterthought. If you failed to meet the goals in time, it was still fun to design the park itself. This was my first Railroad Tycoon game, so perhaps this was just my misconception to expect the same idea.

Doesn't have map of US!

Cameron Scholtz, Amazon
28 November 2003
  • Summary: Nice graphics and sound. However, the game doesn't even include a map of the US! The stock market is the same cretin style stock market of the previous game (no matter how much money you have, you can't buy stock from other players). The last and most serious problem is track laying & station placement. There is no un-do.
