    I can't think of a single thing that truly disappointed me about Transport Fever 2. It's elegantly presented and understands that some efficiencies are required for the sake of playability.

    Transport Fever 2 is not a re-invention of the genre, but a considerable improvement of tried and tested gameplay principles.

    A great game for fans of economy simulations and model railroads alike, with lots of meaningful improvements, new features and a really good campaign. Unfortunately it is plagued with regular crashes that denies the game a better rating.

    Transport Fever 2 offers a pleasingly detailed logistics simulation, although it does move mightily slow at times.

    If you're new to the series, Transport Fever 2 is a great place to start. The campaign offers a gentle introduction to transportation logistics, while the late game guides you through managing modern cities. The new demand and production mechanics may annoy some more experienced players, who will also notice that this game isn't as much of a step forwards as Transport Fever 1 was over Train Fever, but fans will definitely find endless hours of replayabilty as they grow and master their transport empire.

    Transport Fever 2 doesn’t need to be a firebrand vehicle for climate activism, but having such themes inform the systems more closely would give it a little more personality and relevance. As it stands, this is a pleasant if not particularly distinctive game that may provide frustrated commuters with hours of transport therapy.

    Pre-ordered the game about a month before the release as I was impressed with the trailer but the whole month I wanted to make a refundPre-ordered the game about a month before the release as I was impressed with the trailer but the whole month I wanted to make a refund because I was afraid that the game would be too difficult to learn, that there will need to think a lot and will not be able to relax!
    When the game came out I did not regret that he left her! The gameplay is very pleasant and meditative! At an easy level of difficulty, you can relax and enjoy the process. For what is happening in the city is very exciting to watch! The graphics are amazing! The music is great, a couple of melodies are my favorite) Some of them complain about crashes, I have over 20+ hours there was absolutely no problems with the game!
    Developers, well done! The game is very pleased and was a discovery for me!

This game can also be called an electronic train layout. The second part has become much better, more beautiful, a map editor has appeared, which everyone has been waiting for. The studio that makes this game not big, therefore needs the support of all fans. This is a very calm, moderately smart and very pleasant game for the eyes. Expand

    Is it the best current transport game (with perhaps the exception being OpenTTD)? Definitely. If you like transport games this is your game.

    Consider this as TF 1.5 not 2. Nice improvements here and there, but whole new game? No.

    This game really made me wonder: Is Transport Tycoon, at this point a 25 (!) year old game, indeed such an incredible achievement that noThis game really made me wonder: Is Transport Tycoon, at this point a 25 (!) year old game, indeed such an incredible achievement that no other game will ever come close to it? This one didn't even really try.

    The graphics are just that - a modern tileset that creates rather nice environments. City growth on the other hand looks like a tumor and has no actual effects: Since the whole economy persists of two types of goods per city (and there isn't even a dozen overall) the only challenge consists of increasing your capacities. Don't even dream of the variety you've seen in games like "Railroad Tycoon", or a dynamic economy. There is no stock market, there are no seasons, no weather, and especially the freeform mode falls flat.

    By deliberately placing resources and the industries that need them as far away as possible you could have a game that requires planning and foresight. But in the end the world is completely static, and the only thing you need is money, not a vision, or a strategy, and certainly not creativity.

    In the beginning you'll have to wait very long to make enough money, later on you don't know what to do with it anymore, and then you make the mistake of playing the campaign.

    You almost have no actual choices to make or strategies to plan thanks to the dumbed down economy and the lack of content. Now imagine putting those mechanics to work in a campaign that wants to recreate historic events. Imagine Indonesia, consisting of two cities that need four types of resources, a narrator that goes on and on about all the things that are not there and that I'm obviously supposed to imagine, to create the scenario. But you don't really have to listen to him, just to get the same two types of goals over and over again, which mainly consist of - once more - waiting.

    The real challenge here is to keep the music running, it's the only thing that can really compete with the original Tranport Tycoon and it's set of nerve-wracking midi songs. Otherwise the sound is acceptable, even though I sometimes wonder why my passengers tend to make chicken noises without carrying actual chickens, and chickens not being a good that you can transport because as thousand others they didn't make it into the game.

    Train models are decent, and you can zoom in to take a look at actual passengers, which is a neat little feature, even though they don't do anything. Building tracks for them is almost too easy, and given the overall lack of challenge you won't put too much work into it. Upgrading your structures is another nice addition that you'll unfortunately never use, since having more than one terminal just shows the terrible pathfinding and AI you have to deal with.

    TL;DR: Transport Fever 2 should be marketed as an idle game or a screen saver, not a management and transport simulation.

    If you are interested in the concept and are not allergic to pixelated graphics, OTTD (open Transporter Tycoon deluxe) has you covered for free and is still unchallenged.
