Fun game but not very easy to use!

  • Summary: This game was to replace my RTII after I upgraded to a 64 Bit computer that runs on Windows 7. I like the graphics but seems that they forgot to develop a full USA map to play with. Many of the menus are hidden and you have to click through them to figure what does what. Overall a fun game but I liked the ease of the prior versions.

  • Summary: I bought this game for my husband for his birthday when it first came out. My husband loved RRT 2 and the expansion pack, so I thought this was a definite can't lose gift. And it wasn't. The graphics are great, the music is fun, and the ability to play online is great. (Not too many play online yet though, for some reason) However, my husband who spent much of his life playing the previous game did not spend nearly as much time on this one.

Good but Disappointing

  • Summary: RT2 is one of my favorite games--it's one of only a handful of computer games that has been on my computer continuously since I first loaded it. A game I have always been able to get pleasure from. The wonderful music, the fabulous gameplay, the fun & detailed graphics--Railroad Tycoon 2 is everything a great computer game should be. When I found out that there would be yet another edition of Railroad Tycoon I was delighted. 3D graphics? Great! New gameplay options?

Not as much fun as I thought it would be!!!

  • Summary: This game I guess is alittle too indepth for me. Too complicated, and when your trying to get it started, you seem to run out of montey too fast. You never know if you have people on your trains or not, you don't ever see people, and that is something I was hoping for. My most favorite tycoon game of all time is Zoo Tycoon Complete Collection...the graphics are the best, and you can see the people no problem.

Fun but not as indepth as I would have liked

  • Summary: I prefer more complex games that keep my attention for long periods of time. The game is entertaining and runs smoothly on my computer. I have yet to have a problem with bugs. Here are problems that I have with the game: 1) Can't specify hauling multiple loads.. can only be one commodity so if I'm hauling things to my factory which requires more than one input commodity.. it takes a few runs. 2) The AI of the competition is awful.

Great game, but not a simulation.

  • Summary: I have enjoyed playing this game for what it is worth, but it doesn't fullfill my sim needs. It is still a very enjoyable game but is definitely targeted to a broader audience, including children. There are a lot of very unrealistic things that happen while playing, such as trains going through each other and becoming invisible at stations (this is in the second RRtycoon as well) and trains moving WAY too fast, even if the game speed is lowered.

This Game Kind of Plays Itself

Cameron Scholtz, Amazon
15 November 2003
  • Summary: Woa! Not nearly as challenging as RT2. Consists are automatically controlled for you. All you need to do is connect a bunch of cities and make money. There's no micro-managing of goods like there was in RT2. The economic model in RT3 really takes center stage. In fact, you can often make a fortune without even laying any track! And I thought this was a railroad game.
