    It is definitely worth the money!

    Railroad Tycoon 3 is a game that can actually qualify as one of the best tycoon games I have ever played. It is both fun and challenging and a game I am just not able to put down. That claim is really one that I rarely u... Read Full Review

    Surprisingly poor computer opponent AI is really disappointing.

    The really lame computer oppenents are a pretty big fault in the game. Previous versions had better opponent AI that would try to buy you out or corner a market you needed. Or place rails on land that you needed. ... Read Full Review

    A bit of a let-down but still worth playing.

    This was a game I really looked forward to getting. Railroad Tycoon 2 is one of my all time favorites. All the new features are amazing. Especially the much more realistic way cargo is hauled. The letdown is with the mis... Read Full Review
