"With its sheer complexity, vast, array of options, and immense scope for hours of play, Railroad Tycoon is one of those classiest simulations you're ever likely to see - a bit like SimCity with loads of extras thrown in." - Computer and Video Games (CVG) review

"Put simply, Railroad Tycoon is an absolute classic. A game that gives your brain one of the most stimulating and enjoyable neural work-outs yet devised. Surely that's what computer gaming is all about." - ACE review
