  1. If you are a sim fan you MUST have this game.
  2. Despite the unwieldy user interface, this will have Dreamcast strategy fans drooling. Definitely not just for trainspotters.

    So incredibly detailed it'll blow you away.
  4. The graphics were great, the sound was good, and the gameplay was just addictive beyond belief.
  5. Sega X

    Clearly gamers of this genre will benefit from all the efforts programmed into the game, spit-shined to pure gaming satisfaction.
  6. All aboard! This game will appeal to sim fans and model-train collectors alike.

    Big and complex with Grand Canyon-esque depth and a boatload of possibilities, this is one sleeping giant you may not want to pass up.
  8. Solid gameplay, numerous options, and attention to detail make Railroad Tycoon II an excellent simulation.
  9. Daily Radar
    75
    Next stop, mild amusement.
  10. Tremor has done a much better job in porting Railroad Tycoon 2 over to Sega's console than was done with the rather poor PlayStation version.
  11. Dreamcast HQ
    70
    The game is packed with over 70 scenarios including everything from the original Railroad Tycoon II and their Second Century expansion pack, plus all new scenarios designed exclusively for the Dreamcast.

And I was ratherAs a fan of a transport simulation genre after seeing all these very positive comments everywhere I decided to buy this one. And I was rather disappointed. Graphics and user interface are very outdated and annoying (but we all know it's not a main thing in games like this), but the gameplay is mediocre and overall transport simulation is not at a very detailed level which is more important. It's definetely not a very good game, despite very positive comments made by fanboys. Actually couldn't recommend this one except maybe for collectors. Full Review »

    I spent a lot of time on RT2 and despite old graphics, it's better that RT3.
    That's because RT2 is more challenging than RT3.
