Sid Meier's Railroads! Review
Railroads! is an addictive economic strategy game that you don't have to be a locomotive aficionado to enjoy.
While not a train enthusiast, I have always loved train simulation games. I was an avid player of Railroad Tycoon 2 (which I hold to be one of the landmark games of the genre) and I was moderately pleased with PopTop's s... Read Full Review13 of 14 users found the following review helpful
As much as I wanted to like this game, I found it completely unsatisfying. It's billed by Firaxis/2K Games as a strategy/simulation, but whatever it simulates, it's not a railroad, and build it faster is about the only s... Read Full Review9 of 9 users found the following review helpful

If you really enjoy the logistical challenges associated with multi-leveled railroad games like RT2 and RT3, you are in for a disappointment with the Railroads! endpoint of the brilliant series. Once again, Mr. Meier ha... Read Full Review4 of 6 users found the following review helpful
My experience with strategy games was limited to a couple of titles, until the day a trailer for Sid Meier's Railroads caught my attention. What impressed me the most was the sheer size and scope that Railroads contains,... Read Full Review3 of 6 users found the following review helpful
I purchased Sid Meiers Railroad to replace a lost copy of Railroad Tycoon 2, a simulation I really enjoyed. Unfortunately, Railroad was disappointing compared to RT2. Most of the gameplay was familiar although the i... Read Full Review1 of 2 users found the following review helpful
