Published November 19th 2006. Written by Thomas McDermott. I don’t like trains – they don’t amuse me and I view them as extremely loud vehicles intent on making as much noise as possible hissing and clunking as much as they can. I also...

Like most games bearing his name, Sid Meier’s Railroads! is wonderfully simple to learn, but extraordinarily difficult to master. There’s no canned storyline to follow, just seven scenarios that plant you in Germany, France, Great Britain,...

Modern trains are often criticised for being overcrowded, under-financed and poorly run. However, the mid-19th century was a golden age for railways, a romantic era of technological breakthroughs that revolutionised transport, industry and...

Shael MillheimClassification: G7.0The game is proof that a big name tacked onto a game does not necessarily guarantee a great game. It just seems like a game trying to ride on name recognition alone. Maybe Railroad or Sid Meier fans are all a gush...

This is not a game I would usually buy off the shelf at the local retailer as I usually avoid Sims and that genre of game titles as they bore me to death. For some reason though the thought of trains grabbed me by the kid inside and I decided to take...

Sid Meier’s Railroads is Railroad Tycoon Lite. The level of enjoyment will depend on whether micromanagement and tough economic challenges is your style, or whether you just want to build a booming rail empire and watch your trains chug along....

Spec: Strategy, 1-4 Players, Everyone

By Strategy Informer on 68

There’s something about building railways which makes a much better tycoon game than any of the horrid spin-offs; the laying of track, setting routes, delivering cargo, circumventing old routes with new routes, laying double lines on congested...

beautiful train business simulation: Picture the scene. Theres a man at a train station, wearing a blue anorak and clutching a thermos flask in one hand, a laptop in the other. Can you possibly get a geekier combination than trains...

International Review By GamePlayer on 50

Sid Meiers Railroads bygger på den anrika tradition av tågspel som startade med skaparens klassiska Railroad Tycoon, år 1990. Till skillnad från de tidigare uppföljarna i serien ska Sid Meier faktiskt själv ha varit med i...

International Review By Subdogs on 80

Sid Meier är en kultfigur som ligger bakom en imponerande samling klassiska spel. Sedan sin debut 1984 har han varit inblandad i de flesta genrer och dessutom uppfunnit några nya. Mest känt är kanske Civilization-serien, men han är också mannen...

International Review By Clubic on 60

Loin dêtre un mauvais jeu, Sid Meiers Railroads! ne doit cependant pas être pris pour ce quil nest pas, cest à dire le quatrième opus de la fameuse série Railroad Tycoon. Si Firaxis, pas très honnête pour le coup, joue sur le flou artistique que...

International Review By FZ.se on 70

Järnvägar och tåg har hjälpt mänskligheten i två sekel. I spelform blir det ungefär två decennier, och drygt femton år efter Sid Meiers inträde på området är det dags för uppföljaren Railroads! Att vara geniförklarad spelskapare har sina fördelar....

Den gamla järnvägsbyggarklassikern är tillbaka - nu i sockersöt 3D och med ett förenklat spelupplägg som gör att alla kan vara med! Sebbe har...
