Summary

A good game but not worthy of the name Railroad Tycoon 2

The Good

Graphics are good. Trains are just cool. The stock market is modeled very well. It's not maybe very realistic but it's fun and that's the main thing. Some people like the added micromanagement but I don't.

The Bad

Micromanagement is sometimes horrible. I have tried to enjoy scenario based games like this one but often find that I can't like this time. The graphics are 2d but quiet slow.

The Bottom Line

The sequal to Railroad Tycoon 1. The player manages trains and makes profit. Pure capitalism at it's best.
