Lionel Trains: On Track is a fun on-the-go sim that will keep you entertained and has a good degree of replay value. It doesn't have the best graphics or sound, but pick it up if it's cheap.

Should you buy this for yourself? Only if you were a child yourself when train sets were popular. Should you buy this for your child? It will save you money from buying the real thing. It’s an a mediocre pick-up but there are better games on the Nintendo DS to invest your time and money into.
Unfortunately, the game's uncomfortable controls keep it from being a winning experience and can make it downright unenjoyable at times. A more fully-realized control system and a better menu interface could have made this game far more playable. As it is, Lionel Trains on Track shapes up to be something far less than it could have been.

It's hard to tell just what Black Lantern Studios was thinking when it made Lionel Trains On Track. The game is boring, tedious, difficult to figure out, and has terrible controls, making it absolutely useless as a kid title. Likewise the graphics aren't great either, with trains that are too tiny to really be seen clearly, and environments that are indistinguishable from one another, making this game worthless for model train enthusiasts. A simulation game on the DS should be a perfect fit, but Lionel Trains is on the wrong track.

Dernier arrêt, tout le monde descend ! Le bilan est sans appel : Lionel Trains : On track ne dispose pas d'atouts suffisants pour convaincre le public français. La réalisation globale du titre est bien trop faible pour réussir à intéresser les joueurs.
