Yeah, good game..
As from what I can remember playing the game it was interesting to design the railroads and such, but I didn't really get that much out of the game. It was the same thing over and over.
I don't know if anyone else agrees, I just don't see this game going anywhere. It's like the Sims, although that game was supree-adictive. The Sims had something that Railroad Tycoon 2 doesn't, it has a purpose to play it, aswell as the Sims 2, which was aspiration meters and such. Railroad Tycoon's objectives are basic, and boring.
