The speed at which Railway Empire progresses is similar to that of 2003’s Sid Meier’s Railroads! and that moves it decidedly outside of the realm of rail transport simulation titles such as Transport Fever and Railroad Tycoon. I was a bit afraid at first that this would hamper my enjoyment but nothing could be further from the truth. It’s a tremendous amount of fun and sinking 80 hours into the game has left me far from bored. I keep going back for more and I find new strategies to up my game with every playthrough. For an action oriented rail game that was never meant to cater to my train tycoon simulator itch, that’s a deviously masterful trick.
В видео игре Railway Empire вы контролирует вашу собственную компанию по производству поездов, так как железнодорожная индустрия растет с поразительной скоростью и приносит колоссальную прибыль. Отвечая за прокладку дорог и создание новых маршрутов по всей Америке, вы несете ответственность за подключение городов к огромной и сложной сети трансконтинентальных поставок.
Самая крутая игра про железную дорогу.
I probably enjoyed Railway Empire more than I should have. I liked laying down tracks and adding switches and figuring out how to move a multitude of trains around without them causing traffic jams and blockages. But the game is a little on the casual side to suit me completely, it only includes early trains in the United States, and it has enough interface and gameplay problems right now that I’m only giving it a minor recommendation. Railway Empire is best suited to people who like trains and simulations, or who played Railroad Tycoon back in the day and have been wishing for it to make a comeback.
The core of the game is sound, it just needs to be more upfront with the player about what it’s doing. It’s really frustrating for me because I keep booting it up and I keep playing it, but eventually tangled web of systems gets the better of me and I’ve got to close it in a rage. It pains me because with the easily identified issues to the interface this is a game which would comfortably clamber up to 8.5, perhaps even 9 out of 10. Who knows, a few patches down the line, maybe Railway Empire will get there. After all, no train arrives quite on time.
Railway Empire is a good management game, interesting, deep and complex. But it is clearly not for beginners despite its presence on PS4 and Xbox One. The tutorial is too frail and we often end up going around in circles before finding the solution which make a run extremely time-consuming and artificially long. Despite that, this title has many interesting game mechanics, in particular the economy system which is a perfect representation of modern capitalism and what the history of the American railway might have been.
A sold enough railroad simulation game. The actual track building portion of the game in probably the strength. However it feels a little "gamey" at times with a lot of things locked behind research and the overly annoying voice overs. Still worth a look for fans of these type of games.
It really is great to see a new train based strategy game make an appearance, it's long overdue.I have been waiting for a follow-on to Railway Tycoon 2 (RT2) and this is probably it for the moment.
I like this game being based on history with a link to realism. An ideal railway game would have the following elements,
1/ A route laying element where the player has a set of tools to build track from A > B which incorporates various trade-offs to give an advantage/disadvantage dependent on the player' skill and other factors.
2/ A detailed train routing and consist element with user selectable AI assistance.
3/ A managable economic system which is easy to understand.
4/ A financial element restricted to the train and associated industry main game.
5/ A UI which is low on clutter and intuitive to the user.
6/ Some reference material that explains the above.
7/ An editor for modders.
In this game, 1 and 2 are more or less there, 3 is let down by the UI, 4 is quite disappointing, 5 is a failure, 6 is laughable and 7 does not get a look in. In the end I rate this a marginal purchase because it misses out on being a step up from RT2, in fact, graphics aside it is a retrograde increment.That said, a good clean and rework of the UI would help enormously to lift it's rating, especially city demand and train routing.
I am not a fan of spy's and saboteurs in these types of games as they largely serve to distract players from what should be the main aim, mainly to run an efficient railroad. The breakdown mechanic also needs some work as it's pretty silly having new trains with service facilities breaking down every run with a random breakdown balloon.
Let's hope some game revisions are made.
This Is a super designed rail experience better than Trainz2004 &06 sim .It ,(requires funds and maps larger with a whole history of railroading in America.) That said I've tried too play and can't seems moving view wants too travel 199s;to 1999s of miles on a click of button trying too see where I'm laying track and failing, then when I want to click on me Icons there is a wait too 5 mins while waiting for highlight and response of being clicked. Very frustrating . Riding is fun but view limited.
This could be done much better, but its done how its "okay". Developers become lazy and start make games better than worst by their competitors. Where all great games go? Why to launch "ok"-games is ok now?
SummaryIn Railway Empire, you will create an elaborate and wide-ranging rail network, purchase over 40 different trains modelled in extraordinary detail, and buy or build railway stations, maintenance buildings, factories and tourist attractions to keep your travel network ahead of the competition. You'll also need to hire and manage your workf...
