Railroad Tycoon II

  • 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. In RRT2 you play as the railroad baron and control the train transportation, Buy and sell stocks, set the train routes, lay the railway tracks, stations and take over companies.

Highly addictive at first

Alexander, Amazon

  • 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. Except you are building a railroad empire instead of a city-state empire. I found the games interface to be very well laid out and easy to use. The one thing that I found most difficult though was laying track.

  • 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! Those of us who loved the original looked forward to the sequel with trepidation. Would the formula be ruined be introducing too many extraneous features?

  • 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. The game is divided into three lengthy chapters, the first covering the pioneering days of North America, the second Europe's rail networks, and the third the battle for the unclaimed territory of...

  • Excerpt: "Railroad Tycoon 2 is a very well thought out game but i could never get really addicted to it. The game requires building a railway network both passenger and goods and running it efficiently. Thats easy enough but the screen is occupied in a large part by the control panel which does mean you have to scroll round more than you should need to. A much better version than the origional with 3D graphics and good sound effects but unfortunately it dosnt ...
  • Pros: Easy to understand gameplay
  • Cons: Screen area too small

  • Excerpt: ...semplicemente il secondo episodio di Railroad Tycoon, appartiene al genere della strategia e ci farà mettere a dura prova la nostra intelligenza artificiale per ciò che riguarda le finanze, nella costruzione delle ferrovie. Vanno costruire le linee, le stazioni e collegati i vari paesi, operando in tutti quanti i continenti del mondo. Sebbene sia un gioco che ha già parecchi anni, presenta una grafica notevole. In ogni caso, è anche molto complesso, ...

Railroad Tycoon 2: Un jeu........moyen

castaing, Dooyoo
24 September 2011
  • 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.
  • Pros: modèle boursier et industriel
  • Cons: graphismes
