    Ticket to Ride is an adaptation of a popular board game, with the ability to play against AI, or local or online opponents. The board game has a pretty simple rule set that's easy to learn, and it has some good strategic complexity. I haven't been playing it for all that long, but I've definitely enjoyed what I've played so far.

    I found the voice acting obnoxious and turned it off immediately. The music grates after a little while, but you can turn that off too. The game controls pretty well and shows a lot of useful information on screen. The menus are a bit clunky, and this actually makes it a little difficult to get in to the online game lobby.

    But really, what matters is the gameplay, and Ticket to Ride has great gameplay. I had fun playing against AI and against humans, and there's tons of replay value. This game will definitely be worth it for board game enthusiasts at full price. I'd still recommend it to anyone that can appreciate a strategic, turn-based game. As for the DLC, it allows you to play on different maps, sometimes with different rules. If you like the base game, the expansions will add quite a bit.

    Ticket to Ride is a popular strategy based board game that tasks the players with completing railroad routes across the games map (USA is the original map but there are plenty of expansions available) attempting to score more points than their opponents. The great thing about Ticket to Ride is that the rules are very simple and the interactive tutorial included with this PC version will mean that within 5 minutes even complete novices will know what they are doing.

    Its obviously not quite as fun as playing the real thing with friends and family but this very faithful adaptation (which can be played in about half the time of the actual board game) is still an enjoyable way to spend your time and, thanks to Steam, its easy to find people online to play with.

    If you're a fan of tabletop games this come highly recommended.

    This game was very enjoyable as a board game, and i love it on PC too. I got it in the humble bundle, so the price was well worth it, (7 bucks for a ton of games including this.) The gameplay is good, its just like the physical game, but as DarkCowboy said, the AI is really, really, easy to beat, and when you spectate a game you cant chat, which really annoys me.

    Basically, if you liked the physical board game, get this. It may have some problems, but its worth it to have some fun with your friends/family.

    Game is fantastic and enjoyable, but has a few shortcomings. The AI is terrible and I have yet to lose a game to the AI. The game needs a hotseat and LAN mode that lets you play more than one person against the computer. And the online mode desperately needs a game lobby. You can wait forever to fill a game with 4 or 5 players. It also lacks the option to invite and play with friends online. You can only play against opponents that the game picks for you. Basicly, you should only get this if you're a desperate Ticket to Ride fan with no friends, or if you're curious to the game, because it can in no way replace the boardgame version. I got it from an indie bundle during the sales and fell in love with it right away. While the game IS fun, I ended up ordering a physical copy from Amazon, because of the shortcomings in the digital edition. Expand
