  1. I was very surprised at how good Ticket to Ride is and still go back to play it even after writing this review, which is a rarity for me when it comes to Xbox Live games.

    For the sheer amount of fun that strategy fans will have with this XBLA offering, it's very easy to overlook its few imperfections.
  3. While the game might not appeal to those looking for their XBLA games to pack a little extra visual punch, it's "All aboard!" for those trying to find a relaxing new way to do Game Night with friends.

    This actually proves pretty deep. [Issue#36, p.114]
  5. This railroad-inspired board game offers subtle strategy and an easy learning curve for less than the price of a real train ticket.
  6. No, it’s not Catan… But, it doesn’t have to be. This is a buy for all board game, Catan, Carcassonne fans, and for someone looking to play a new video strategy game that is as fun as the board game.

    Ticket to Ride will split gamers' opinions. For those who love this genre, there is no reason not to enjoy this game. But for people who do not like slow-paced European board games, Ticket to Ride is not likely to change your view of the genre.

    This is one of my favorite board games over the last few years, and this port does the job without getting in the way. It is quick and easy This is one of my favorite board games over the last few years, and this port does the job without getting in the way. It is quick and easy to learn, but there is a lot of depth to playing; there isn't too much planning on every move, like some other games so decisions can be fairly quick. Like all board games it isn't speedy, but if you want something speedy, you aren't going to be playing a video game version of a board game. I'm very much looking forward to the expansions for this game because i really like the Europe board, and the 1910 expansion. This is definitely one of the best board games in recent years and is great for the whole family, and a great introduction to modern board games to people who don't normally play them. Expand

    This is a very good adaptation of the board game. The makers captured the game's rules well and updated it with animations and sound. This is a very good adaptation of the board game. The makers captured the game's rules well and updated it with animations and sound. Better yet, it has single player (1 person versus AI), local multiplayer (1-3 people versus AI), and Xbox Live multiplayer (1 person versus a mix of online people and AI), so you are guaranteed a good time. It is a nicely balanced medium-light strategy game designed to never let a player get too far ahead of winning, and is entertaining for the entire family. Expand

    Faithful adaptation of the board game. Music and sound effects are sparse. Red and orange look almost alike. Cards are missing symbols, Faithful adaptation of the board game.
