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.
