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.
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...
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.
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...
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.
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.
Summary: Have contacted 2K about this, they are aware of the problem, but told me there are no plans to upgrade or patch the game to make it Vista compatable.
Pros: An excellent game for several hours of play, with options that can adjust the hardness of the game as well as throw some location surprises your way
Cons: Unfortunately, the program is NOT Windows Vista compatable, resulting in repeat crashes. Attempted to bypass this using the compatability toggle in properties to go to XP mode as well as 'Run as Administrator' but something in coding kepps it crashing.
