  1. This game is worryingly addictive; it's not just a business simulation, nor just a power game, but an educational competition where only the forward thinker survives and thrives.

I'm almost fifty and enjoy a simple game that on the outside looks simple but is complex. This is a game where no-one is shot or killed. This simple game requires one to think about what they are doing and several (several) steps ahead. I like this game. Full Review »

    Well, it's not a 10 and a little better than an 8 but it's definitely NOT BETTER than the origional.

The ai is paultry to the ai of the origional game in which I lost and have never lost a game of this. But, the game is colorful and I give it credit for EYE CANDY (boy am I sick of games getting good ratings because of eye candy RTW are you listening?) What makes this game too easy is that the ai just ignores the businesses and I can pick them up for a song easily and plow right ahead into the lead and never look back. It also doesn't build far and wide like the origional either. It basically is just there to "block" you if it can otherwise it has no strategy about it at all.
    Nothing to me will ever match the origional Sid Meier's Railroad Tycoon game. I still play it to this day more than these other eye candy games. I love the "cutthroat" competition and the fluxuating unpredictable economy and the music. ;)
