Not as good as the originals IMO

Timothy Sayre, Amazon
12 December 2014
  • Summary: Not as good as the originals IMO. Seems harder to lay track and the game seems to have less options than the old version. Glad i didn't pay much for it.

Sid Meier's on win 8.1

G. Matot "GMS", Amazon
6 August 2014
  • Summary: I run this on a win 8.1 PC desktop. It runs just fine but on occasion it crashes without warning, I think it has something to do with memory something or other. If you've never seen this before it's a railroad simulator.

Not what I expected.

  • Summary: I was expecting more freedom in sandbox mode, but sadly, it felt more like North Korea compared to previous railroad tycoon games.

  • Summary: Good game just a little old. Gfx are outdated but so is the game. Fun is not what I thought but enough to play here and there. Would have been fun back in the day

  • Summary: I love this type of games! But railroads! falls short many times. It's too easy, too shallow, not much of anything besides putting down railroads (and I guess you can argue that that's the whole point, but I would've liked to have something besides that, something deeper, something more like...

Nice idea, not yet used by my model railroaders.

S. Means "kachmor", Amazon
14 June 2013
  • Summary: I DIRECT A SMALL MUSEUM and display space and devote a little over 1,000 square feet to model railroaders and their circuits which attempt to portray the role of trains in our region over time. I thought that perhaps Sid,s software would help them build a more extensive digital model.

Happy to have a Mac version, but...

Mariel, Amazon
17 May 2013
  • Summary: I was happy to see this ported over for Mac. However, the game play itself leaves something to be desired (nothing to do with the porting to Mac). For example, placing track/stations in a city or town is much more difficult than it needs to be simply because you can't zoom into a close enough angle...

Has some bugs that affect play

Ryan McGann, Amazon
15 January 2013
  • Summary: I enjoy playing this game but the bugs make it too hard to play for long periods of time without becoming frustrated. Trains arbitrarily choose the wrong route, or no route completely, when laying tracks.

Railroads!

Michael Barnes, Amazon
22 May 2011
  • Summary: Was a fan of the original back in the day. This latest version is great as far as graphics although I think there is still much to improve on. For instance, most play seemed very guided as to what you had to accomplish with very little "free" play to do your own thing.

Has some great points, but so so.

h_i_l_l_o, Ebay
1 March 2011
  • Summary: The graphics are the best from any other railroad game. It is simpler then the other Railroad tycoon games, so it is easier to learn for new players, but unlike the other games it doesn’t seem like there is as many levels to learn and challenge the player.
