  • Summary: It is not that we do not like the game. Rather we can not get it to download and we do not know where to go to get it fixed.

Satisfied Itch

Brad S., Amazon
2 January 2014
  • Summary: Returning Railroad Tycoon player. Simply put, this game satisfied my itch to play a railroad strategy game. I would have been extremely disappointed if I had paid original price. Although the graphics have improved dramatically on this edition of the series, the game play is limited and it still crashes. As long as you don't expect or pay much, you may be able to satisfy your itch. Railroad Tycoon II is better if you have a system that can still play it.

Not Much Fun

Metalsmith "Metalsmith", Amazon
18 December 2013
  • 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. This game also has places you can get into, but not find your way out off. Your only recourse is to shut down and start over. Which SUCKS! This isn't a game. It's a fast paced and demanding simulation!

Was not what I thought it was.

J Baptiste, Amazon
10 December 2013
  • 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.

I can't be the only one.

Mark Amidon, Amazon
25 October 2013
  • 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.

Railroad Tycoon was a better game

monkijohnni, Amazon
27 April 2013
  • 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. Don't buy Railroads unless it is super cheap, otherwise it isn't worth it. You'll get a couple weeks out of this (maybe) before you tire of it.

An Old Railroad Tycoon player - disappointed

PlutosGeek, Amazon
10 January 2012
  • 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. I also hate having to have to put the CD in every time I want to play it. I thought that type of thing went out in the 90's.

disappointing

  • Summary: I brought this game because I love sid meier's game but this has to be his worst game by far. Even the demo is confusing and boring. Game play is below par.

Sid Miers RR

cgromley, Ebay
7 July 2008
  • Summary: Good game but a memory hog... runs slow on mid scale computers. Found that RR Tycoon has the the same basic features and some that I wish were included in this game. Graphics are great but again unless you have a high speen computer... jitters and mouse response is slow.

Railroads - very disappointed

K. Forrest "I owe, I owe; it's off to work I ..., Amazon
21 January 2007
  • Summary: I am loath to use the word "scam" but I am definitely disappointed with this purchase. The game will function with any reasonably modern machine up to the point where you say the bad word "graphics". This game has very sophisticated needs relating to Shader technology. Since my machine only had a graphics card with 64MB of on board memory, I had to go and get another graphics card (at a cost of $[...] to run a $[...] program).
