Sid Meier's Railroads! (Games, PC) Price: Rs.299

In a nutshell:< b>
Railroad Tycoon returns in all but name as Sid Meier reinvents the series and business sims in general with completely real-time gameplay and surprisingly impressive graphics.

The lowdown:< b>
This may be the latest in a long line of Railroad Tycoon games but it actually plays very differently from the slow paced turn-based games of old. Everything occurs in real-time as you race to compete one of the preset objectives from around the world and from the 19th century onwards. Starting with a single train depot in the middle of nowhere you have to build up your rail network until you control not just transport but all the industries connected to it. This becomes particularly important when youre playing online against real players as you all compete to service the biggest cities and be first to take advantage of new technology. The premise may sound dull but the game itself will make a trainspotter of anyone.

Most exciting moment:< b>
As complex as the game may sound what makes it popular with ordinary gamers is that its actually extremely easy to play. Despite the influence you have on cities and factories you only ever actually lay down tracks and stations and the computer handles the rest automatically. It also helps that the graphics are really good for what initially sounds like a dull strategy game.

Since you ask:< b>
Sid Meier the man behind Civilization pretty much invented the business simulator with the original Railroad Tycoon in 1990. Developer Frixais which Sid help to found is now owned by publisher Take-Two who also own the rights to the Railroad Tycoon name. Oddly the company decided not to reuse it for this revamp.

The bottom line:< b>
Sid Meier returns to the age of steam with the biggest train set ever made.

Product Features< b>

Real-time action lay track route the trains and the world comes to life< li>Easy to get started laying track is as easy as clicking and dragging< li>It's all about the trains! over 30 trains to use from the primitive 0-4-0 Planet to the Super powerful 4-6-6-4 Challenger< li>LocoBuilder design your own steam engine from the ground up< li>We've got the goods over 20 different goods to harvest produce and sell< li>Something for everyone build your dream train layout in train table mode< li>Multiplayer Ruthless real-time LAN and Internet play< li>

Excellent business simulation game

Havent bought this from Flipkart but couldn't pass up the chance to comment. Benn playing this game for over a year now and its as addictive now as it was when I first got it.

A real time strategy game where you have to manage railroads, businesses, patents, share stakes in other railroads, prices rising and falling - the list goes on. Granted, managing the railroad is the major part but the others add interesting quirks to the play styles.

Graphics detailing is superb for a game of its time. Simply watching a train chug away up close is amazing. Plus the options to add decals and persona...

Graphics detailing is superb for a game of its time. Simply watching a train chug away up close is amazing. Plus the options to add decals and personalized logos to the trains is a nice touch.

The lack of a map editor is a big dampener. However there is a very active user community that has brought out its own expansion pack called Railroads - Intercontinental. Beware though - not all the maps are stable and sometimes the goals can be pretty ridiculous.

All in all, a great game for light entertainment, or (thru multiplayer) a cutthroat battle for control of the rails. Roll on!!!

Excellent Game

This is an excellent builder game. Highly addictive. It puts you in a seat of a rail tycoon where you goal is to put everyone out of business by buying shares in their rail road company. You have to build industries, transport humans and merchandise and plan the logistics. The game give you very flexible control of the environment. There are lots of trivia in between the games which you will find amusing.
