    Der dritte Teil der weltweit erfolgreichen Reihe sorgt durch die Spielegrafik in brillanter 3D-Qualität für beeindruckende Umgebungen und unvergessliche Eindrücke der Goldenen Eisenbahnzeit bis hin zu den heutigen modernen Eisenbahnbetrieben.

    In Railroad Tycoon 3 müssen Sie mit einem bescheidenen Startkapital in der Goldenen Eisenbahnzeit Fuß fassen und Ihr Imperium nach und nach auf alle großen Städte ausdehnen. Nur wer sich die allerneuesten Loks leisten kann, seine Gegner in den Bankrott treibt und ein gutes Händchen an der Börse hat, hat das Zeug zum wahren Bahn-Tycoon.

    Zusätzlich zu den 25 spannenden Szenarien, in denen die bedeutenden Kapitel der Eisenbahngeschichte neu geschrieben werden, können Sie ein ausgedehntes Schienennetz samt Tunneln, Brücken und Unterführungen anlegen und aus mehr als 40 Lokomotiven wählen – von frühen Modellen wie Planet und Norris über die monströsen späteren Dampfmaschinen wie die Challenger bis zum hypermodernen EuroStar und dem ICE.

    Um die dynamische Wirtschaft anzukurbeln, müssen 35 verschiedene Frachttypen zwischen 150 Gebäuden hin- und herbefördert werden. Auch an der Börse geht es bei Railroad Tycoon 3 heiß her und Sie können mit Hilfe von Optionsgeschäften, feindlichen Übernahmen und Fusionen ein Vermögen verdienen.
