Summary

Transport Tycoon is a game of exactly the same style but which, without a doubt, establishes a benchmark for this style of game.

The Good

What is impressive about "Transport Tycoon" is the extensive details for example, the smoke from the steam locomotives, the railroad signals that change or even the railroad crossing. The animation is realistic and so beautiful! The day to day running of the business.

The Bad

To much micro management after 25+ years

The Bottom Line

Transport Tycoon puts you in charge of a transportion company, involving roads, railroads, shiplines and airlines. Your role will be to transport the people between different cities and to move merchandise between production and consumer areas. The goal of the game is to manage your company for a 100 year period from 1930 until 2030 by increasing your transportation network and avoiding bankruptcy.
