    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.
  2. Solid gameplay, numerous options, and attention to detail make Railroad Tycoon II an excellent simulation.
  3. 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.
  4. Despite the unwieldy user interface, this will have Dreamcast strategy fans drooling. Definitely not just for trainspotters.
  5. All aboard! This game will appeal to sim fans and model-train collectors alike.

    Next stop, mild amusement.
  7. The graphics were great, the sound was good, and the gameplay was just addictive beyond belief.
  8. If you are a sim fan you MUST have this game.

    Clearly gamers of this genre will benefit from all the efforts programmed into the game, spit-shined to pure gaming satisfaction.

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 Graphics and user interface are very outdated and annoying (but we all know it's not a main thing in games like this), but the gameplay is mediocre and overall transport simulation is not at a very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.
