Summary

A minor upgrade to a truly great game. The best transport management sim out there.

The Good

This game is fundamentally the same as the original Transport Tycoon (so go read that review) - the same cool graphics, great music and stunning gameplay. It is time consuming, but utterly worthwhile.

The Bad

Once again - same game, same problems. The game still has no speed control, it still has really crap AI, and the bus drivers still don't stop at railroad crossings. Apart from that, it's a damn good game. And if the AI really annoys you, just play without any competitors. It gives you more room, and they're not really a challenge anyway.

The Bottom Line

This is a very minor upgarde to the orginal, adding a some new worlds with varied graphics, and a few minor updates. It's still a brilliant game and well worth buying, so no change there. If you don't already have this game, you may as well get this version. In fact, I don't think you can even get the original anymore. For more information, go read my review on the original Transport Tycoon, since the games are virtually indistinguishable.
