6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story
Inside Mac Games has posted a new review of Feral Interactive's Sid Meierís Railroads!, the re-imagining of the legendary Railroad Tycoon. Developed by Firaxis Games and published by 2K Games for PC, Sid Meierís Railroads! comes to the Mac for the first time under the Feral Legends label.
Here's an excerpt:
It comes with a variety of scenarios and includes multiplayer LAN and through GameRanger. Each scenario can be played with one of three ending times, with different goals for each time. You can also select the number of AI opponents (which are pretty good) and the level of difficult in train routing (how quickly the pass one another, as discussed above). You can also randomize the location of cities and geography in each scenario, further enhancing the possibilities. In this sense, SMRR provides a good amount of gameplay at a reasonable price.For the full review click over to the link below.
IMG Review: Sid Meier's Railroads!
The game comes with a pdf manual that in addition to covering gameplay goes into great details on the history of the railroads, specific engines, the AI players in the game (based on real people) as well as additional details on each scenario, industries in the games and game economics. It's nice to see this much attention being given to something that doesn't even exist anymore in many lesser games.
The less interested you are in a realistic experience, or one similar to the experience playing the original series, the more youíll probably get out of this game. In an era of first person shooters and simulations that are either The Sims or something with more limited gameplay options, SMRR is a return to what may someday been seen as the golden age of simulations in the early/mid-1990s where challenging and open-ended gameplay could be found in many places.
