A simple, fun game with a lot of strategy. A little repetitive after a while.

Ok sicuramente se piacciono i treni e le simulazioni si "fa giocare" ma chi aveva provato Railroad Tycoon o il vecchio (per noi utenti Mac) Atrain non rimarr soddisfatto da questa versione perché la grafica ben lontana dal realismo e forse fin troppo simile ad un cartoon (passatemi il termine) lo rende piacevole ma non un must.
[Ok sure if like trains and simulations "is playing" who had tried Railroad Tycoon or the old (for us Mac users) Atrain will not remain satisfied with this version because the graphics far from realism and perhaps too similar to a cartoon (pass me the term) makes it nice but not a must.]
As a railfan and a strategy game fan, I expected much from this game ... and got much of it. While the game is fun to play, it lacks some of the feel of some previous classic railroad games. Nonetheless, the graphics are decent and the gameplay keeps it interesting.
Much better graphics than the older version and camera angles are terrific. I would prefer an overhead view but I do just fine without it. I find that running many single tracks is working better for me than double or triple tracks where I get traffic snarls at the stations and my wait times are astronomical. I love this game and depending on your level you will find the challenge you want. Hours and hours of fun and instruction on geography as well as train history.
I had a lot of fun figuring out how to build good railways and manage the flow of goods.
Too bad the AI competition has no design skills! But hey, you can buy them out and abolish their ugly works, so all is well.
It does take some time to learn how to make things run smoothly. One line per track goes a long way.
I used to play the original (on PC, then Mac) back in the day so I was used to the format, goals etc. The old game was great for stock manipulations etc. which had more depth than the current game (I could make tons more money playing the stocks than I can now) but, apart from that, the new version still rocks. Graphics are great and gameplay is good. Runs under OS X Yosemite just fine. No problems.
This game had me hooked from the start, mainly due to it's easy to use UI and a rewarding feeling when setting up the perfect routes. However, as a fan of more in depth strategy games I feel this lacked complexity, after around 15 hours of gameplay you have worked out the optimal way of setting up routes, and playing a game on the hardest difficulty becomes an absolute breeze. However, don't take this negatively, I have still had many hours of enjoyment, more so as a rewarding simulator than a challenging strategy game.
Bought the game and installed it. Started the game and it crashed straight away. Shut down my computer and started the game up again and it crashed. Decided to re-install the game and now it is gone from my Mac Game Store Games Account.
Disappointed does not begin to describe how I feel.
This game is great. It allows you to shape a nation by connecting industry and people to various cities. You can play a sandbox mode called "Train Table" or play through missions. You can make it supper easy or supper hard. If I had to say something bad, I'd say... I wish there was more industry to choose from. Not enough different types of resources throughout the maps.
I enjoyed this game a lot, but after a few days—it got kind of dull and repetitive. It would have worked better if there were some expansion packs or different challenges thrown to make it more interesting. It was worth it though—best if you can try to grab it while on sale.
