A-Train Review 1: Ah... just another Railroad-Tycoon-clone - seen that a hundred times before. Ha! So you might think at first sight. Then you start playing it like Railroad Tycoon and the game laughs into your face - you just don't get anywhere! You know what? This is a hard business-sim, you need to care about the stock-market, real estate and all of those dumb dumb things. You scratch your head now looking at the rating above and compare it to the things I wrote? Maybe you already want to stop reading and go searching for a more enjoyable game - STOP! You come to the right place here. I have never seen a game that combines the hard sides of a realistic business-sim with the enjoyable sides of seeing your business as well as the surrounding area grow. The game got a nice touch of Sim City, but you need to work for it - no automatic switches! This isn't Railroad Tycoon where you lay the track and the trains search their way through. It's hard to describe the fascination of A-Train. This game comes slowly, it demands something from the gamer, but it gives back a lot. The atmosphere is much better as in - sorry, I need to compare again - Railroad Tycoon. It's more realistic than Sim City. It's simply a serious, addicting and enjoying game that would have deserved more attention than it got.

Review 2: One of the very few Maxis games that didn't become a smash hit, A-Train a great conversion of Railroad Empire, Japan's classic game of railroad empire building. Although similar in concept to Railroad Tycoon, the difference here is that this is a *much* more business-oriented sim: financial success demands that you undertake property development, invest in the stock market, etc. -- hence the steep learning curve. Graphical presentation of passing time is a nice touch, as is the easter eggs-- watch the sky on Christmas eve!

Review 3: A kind of transport tycoon game with only trains, in which you can lay tracks across a terrain. Along the track you can build hotels, amusement parks, etc. Goal of the game is to get lots of money to expand your empire.
