The most important thing to do before even turning on this game, however, is to read the instructions thoroughly. I can't emphasize this enough, because if you have no idea what you're doing, you will become frustrated, and then you'll hate the game, which I'd hate to have happen, since Railroad Tycoon II is one of the best simulation games I've ever played.

Une bonne simulation, simple et complète, qui ravira les joueurs Dreamcast un peu gavés de l'action pure. Une bonne alternative bien construite.

In the main, however, Railroad Tycoon II is a compelling game. With war, recession and new technology constantly popping up through the years, there is more than enough to keep you entertained. The music may want to make you switch off every couple of hours, but you will constantly find yourself coming back for more, maybe even dabbling in the odd high-speed multiplayer game from time to time. Trainspotters will no doubt relish the chance to direct trains without having to invest in a Hornby set. For the rest of you eager to tax the old grey matter, there's certainly a varied challenge with 200 years of history to play through and money to make. Now aren't you glad you read this review?

Super Play
Med tanke på alla valmöjligheter och det stora antalet scenarier, räcker spelet verkligen länge. Men det vill också till att man har tålamod. Det är inte sällan man behöver starta om ett spel. En felberäkning kan leda till dalande förtroende från investerare, vilket minimerar möjligheten till nya lån. Likheterna med dagens IT-sektor är med andra ord ytterst stora. När man väl har lärt sig hur man ska gå tillväga finns det stora chanser till långvarigt och intressant spelande.

Si de prime abord, la méfiance accompagne les jeux de gestion économique sur console, surtout ceux venus du PC, Railroad Tycoon II bénéficie de suffisamment de qualités pour faire oublier une ergonomie honnête, mais quelque peu fastidieuse au pad (vive la souris et le clavier Dreamcast). Facile à comprendre, doté d'une grande richesse de jeu, d'une difficulté progressive et d'une durée de vie élevée, le jeu réussira à convaincre les chefs de gare et businessmen en devenir, qui ont toujours rêvé de faire mu-muse avec les trains. Les faits historiques qui servent de fondement à la campagne complètent le tableau, et prouvent que les jeux de gestion complexes et intelligents ont leur place sur la console de Sega.
