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.
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. Except you are building a railroad empire instead of a city-state empire.
Excerpt: Railroad Tycoon was one of the great strategy-simulations of the early years of sophisticated PC games. Thousands of gamers became addicted to building their own railways and associated economic systems until games like Civilization took things farther forward.....I did my self!
Excerpt: This is an epic empire-building toyset, where you get the chance to become a Robber Baron of the rail system, setting up your own company, establishing a network, scheduling routes, and ferrying passengers and industrial goods between towns in pursuit of the almighty dollar.
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.
