Summary: Steep learning curve. No "relaxed" mode for just building and watching and enjoying. Everything is hurry-up and right-NOW! Sometimes I just want to goof around and enjoy a game, maybe learn how to use the game - without my head on the chopping block.
Summary: Billed as the replacement to Railroad Tycoon, (that my system outgrew), I was/am very disappointed in the game. This is not it and nowhere near as enjoyable. Way to hung up down in the weeds to truly be playable.
Summary: This game has done nothing but crash since I first installed it. I have been playing games since 1995. I probably know every trick to correct such problems. I thought there might be someone with a solution. So far I have tried everything suggested. No solution.
Summary: This has kept me entertained (and distracted from buying Simcity, since that game is a disaster), but Railroads is WAY too simple and the maps are too small. I can start a game and beat it in 2h. It seems like Railroad Tycoon was a more complicated, interesting, and satisfying game.
Summary: This is nothing like Rail Road Tycoon 3. The graphics are GREAT, however, just a fraction of the game play and scenarios of the previous version. There are not that many locomotives (and no modern day ones), very disappointing.
Summary: Very disappointed that the entire emphasis seems to be on "Great Graphics", the orginal game was easier to actually manage and modify the simulation. This version seems to be lacking in top view management and ability to easily modify, the simulation.
