Summary: Purchased this as a replacement for Train Simulator 2001. I live in a rural area with poor internet. This program it too reliant on an Internet connection so I'm not able to use it at my home.
Summary: "Hey, nice wheels!" "Yeah, only cost me $40. Add that to the $40 I paid originally, it's a bargain" "You going to spend more on it?" "Yeah, sure... About $1000 later, I'll have the whole thing...." Yep. You got it. Full version is a honey pot, sweet GFX, awesome ear-candy and grab-ya game play.
Summary: This game is perfect (I guess) for deep train lovers but I don't see how it could be appealing for other people. I can't rate the simulation realism but one thing's for sure: graphics are not good for a "2013 game" at all.
Summary: The game is defiantly appealing to train fans,yes. But for a game just based on siming the train experience it doesn't have enough little things you can do, that would have made it a better game.
Summary: I have always been fascinated by Trains.... This will satisfy your Fascinations.... But it is very time consuming and maybe boring to some people... But it has plenty of options that you can mess with that keeps the boredom down....
OK, but needs super fast computer and PS3 controller

Summary: I have an i7 core computer with 8 GB RAM, and a 2 GB graphics card, with NVIDIA GE Force. I get very modest realism, but the hesitation (fps) is way too slow for it to be great. The throttles and brakes have very specific stop points (e.g. 13%, 25%, 38%, etc.
Summary: Package arrived on time and appears to be in good condition. Will not be used on pc set up for internet use and other pc lacks SDRAMM capacity. Intend to purchase additional pc for Train Simulator enjoyment May update review later if not too busy riding the old tracks of B&O, C&O etc etc....
Summary: I concur with reviewer David Owens. Although I purchased the game as a dvd, I was still required to establish a password and user account with " STEAM " in order to install the game and run it.
