Summary: Railroad Tycoon II is a real time strategy game by Poptop software with complex interactions, interesting graphics and lots of thinking. The gameplay reminds me of Chris Sawyer's Transport Tycoon, In which you play a tycoon who control the trains, buses, planes and ships in the tycoon world.

Summary: This game is fun the first time you play it, except laying railroads and building the same towns over and over again gets boring. I immediately started searching for cheats, which give the game a little more boost, but it was collecting dust in about a month. Dont waist your money. If you think you would like this game buy Roller Coaster Tycoon instead.
Excerpt: The lay out of the game reminds me of Caesar III. The way in which you play the game is very similar to Caesar III in that you start out with a certain amount of money to build your empire.

The one thing that I found most difficult though was laying track.

Excerpt: Railroad tycoon 2 est un bon jeu, mais sans plus. Les graphiques ne sont pas terribles, et surtout à cause d’eux (c’est chiant un jeu aux graphismes pourris) le jeu, qui est en lui-même un bon jeu, devient passable. Certe il est complet, par le modèle industriel, par le modèle boursier également, mais il reste ces graphismes (encore eux). Les cartes sont réalistes, elles reproduisent bien le relief, les villes… mais c’est tout.
