  • Summary: Classic game from the twilight of PC strategy gaming in the 90's. The game is only complicated if you don't select difficulty options or don't play the early scenarios first. People comparing this game to modern games, simply don't get it and are ignoring the fun and interesting type of game that is ignored by the short attention span theater goers. Have fun and play something that can give you something to think about.

Expansive and surprisingly difficult

Jacob Thien, Amazon
1 March 2014
  • Summary: I wouldn't be able to count the number of times I underestimated the difficulty of this game, only for it to brutally remind me that being a Railroad Baron isn't as simple as its cut out to be. Took me months to figure out the stock market and build bridges over large expanses of water. Fun campaign, interesting challenges, and a quirkiness that I've come to love.

  • Summary: My husband asked me to buy this item for him as a gift. He got lots and lots of use out of it, so he thinks it was worth every penny. He loves it.

Addictive beyond belief

Amazon Customer, Amazon
31 December 2013
  • Summary: Those of us who love history and geography, or who just love railroads find this game to be an all-time favorite. On a newer system, the edge-of-screen scroll is way too fast, but it can be worked around. The game is slow on all but the highest settings, but that doesn't keep it from being a classic.

  • Summary: I spent a lot of time on RT2 and despite old graphics, it's better that RT3. That's because RT2 is more challenging than RT3.

  • Summary: This isn't the worst game I have ever played but it's on that it's on that list. I mean, i see why people gave this a high score and i get it, nostalgia. That's what it is, nostalgia. I for one am rating this based on the game itself. It's not what i'd consider a "good" game. It has pretty good graphics (for it's time) but that's about it. First of all, the controls, interface, and graphics style is extremely confusing.

Still the best Railroad Tycoon

DB "aspiring part time free lance consultant", Amazon
10 June 2013
  • Summary: The replay value is almost unlimited. Graphically the game is starting to show it's age but real gamers don't care about the graphics, it is all about the gameplay and Railroad Tycoon succeeds at that on every level. Still very highly recommended.

  • Summary: If you are a student of logistics you will either really love or hate this game. For me the game is addictive. I'm almost fifty and enjoy a simple game that on the outside looks simple but is complex. This is a game where no-one is shot or killed. This simple game requires one to think about what they are doing and several (several) steps ahead. I like this game.
