before you read this review and think "oh he gave it a 6 it must not be good" that is not true yes I did give this game the low low score of 6 but this is a good game I just don't really like it I think it's because I was more or so expecting levels not just making your own tracks and im really not creative enough to make my own but I can tell a lot of people will like this game so there is really no harm in trying this game
This an experience that makes no demands, and expects nothing from you except peaceful, meditative creativity. It's total lack of meaningful progression won't be for everyone, but if you've been hammering at some stressful shooter all night, we recommend that you boot up a quick session of Tracks before bed to settle your nerves.
There’s no real way to measure the length of time you’ll spend playing this. It’s all based around your personal desire to build and create your own masterpiece. Want easy achievements? Then you’ll be happy to know it has them. While it wasn’t something I could spend any more than a few hours tinkering around with, I can admire the possibilities for others. It has a great theme, extremely child-friendly, and the wooden tracks look excellent. As a whole, it’s a nice package that will either bore you or open up your imagination and give you countless hours of joy.
People who love making model worlds (specifically with trains) and kids will likely get more out of this than I did. The ability to remap controls would go a long way with me though and I would jump back in to give it another shake, if for nothing else it brings back some nostalgia of playing with wooden Thomas the Tank Engine toys. While my score may reflect my current opinion on the game, Tracks is on Game Pass and it is extremely family friendly so there’s nothing to lose with trying it out.
Tracks is simple pick up and play game and if you have kids who love trains this is something they may enjoy. I still prefer playing with the real thing with my son but if you want to get your creative juices flowing and love trains this is a no-brainer for you.
I think this is an amazing concept for a game, but the execution is incredibly poor, at least in Xbox. The controls just kill this game: camera control is poor. You can't delete a lot of pieces you place. The timed "missions" have far too short of time limits, especially given how wonky the controls are. I've gotten stuck in the "toy box" before, where I couldn't select any pieces. Passengers don't get out at the stops in Free Play mode, and there's no obvious way to make them disembark from your train. Great concept, but it lacks A LOT of polish, to the point that it's unplayable, in my opinion. I give it a 2 because if it were playable, it would be a really fun sandbox game.
