Sid Meier's Railroads! continues the legacy of the other Sid Meier games, providing a fun, colorful game that is easy to grasp and difficult to master.
Railroads! centers around the movement of goods and passengers between cities and industries though the 20th century. You will construct railroad equipment to link up cities to ferry passengers to and move goods in freight trains to those population centers as well.
Graphics are reasonable, with sharp lines and nice details. Gameplay is easy to grasp, and can be addictive as the game is deeper than you may expect. The game has a variety of scenarios, with goals to complete in a certain timeframe. You will struggle to complete these goals while competing against historical tycoons of the era for dominance. As stated before, this will be a challenge to those devoted to finishing every element of the game.
Buy this game if you're looking for a thinking game, and a change of pace from the action oriented. Highly recommended.
