Cult of Mac: "Like its bigger iPad-dwelling brother, the iPhone version is very well designed and produced... It’s set to take the mobile gaming world by storm again."

Fun strategy, poor multiplayer
I've been playing this for about three months now and really enjoy the strategy. You can play quick games or play them out longer depending on your preference. The multiplayer is great when it works too.
My gripes start from the beginning. The tutorial is practically useless, just play a game and you'll figure it out faster. I dislike that they charge for new modes of play also. It's one thing to buy a new map but to pay for a modified rule set is ridiculous. I've had a poor multiplayer experience also. There are always connection errors when playing through Game Center and I have to quit the game and restart quite often to get it to change turns. The menu system in the game is annoying also. It'd also be nice if you could change game play options like no train car limit or always use double rails even with only two players. I know it removes some strategy but it'd be a nice option just for fun.
Honestly this game is really fun but it could be a lot better. I'm guessing the developer isn't really interested in supporting their product. From what I understand they stopped supporting the Mac version completely. I'm wondering if they'll ever support the iPhone 5 screen now.
Brilliant iPhone game, multiplayer not so much.
I love the iPhone version of the game. We just bought the board game version as well, but it's so convenient on the phone that we don't feel like playing the real one. No need of shuffling cards, keep verifying what your routes are, setting up trains etc. Me and my wife are completely addicted to it.
My only major complain is the multiplayer format. The game gets stuck many times. Also, the players playing sometimes take years to do their move.
My suggestion that will make it 100 times better is to put time restriction on the multiplayer format or add a new desperate format. The players have to take their turn within 30 secs or a minute max. or the game is forfeited. Also give some kind of bonus to the winner that will have the forfeiters avoid leaving the game in between.
One other thing I love is the great AI. So if u want to play with more players, just add the AI. That makes it fun as the AI plays a decent game as well.
Overall the game is excellent, and has much more potential. Keep riding!
the game is certainly fun, and motivated me to buy the physical board game.
However, the achievements are ubsurd distractions to the game. Its hardly even possible to:
a) Win without opponent completing any tickets
b) Win with only black tracks
c) Win, and claim all "5" tracks.
The "Black Track" achievement is 100% luck. The black tracks are scattered across the board, and do not supply you with high pay-out.
The "5 track" achievement means forfeiting the idea of completing your tickets, and yet, its the deducted score at the end that kills you.
^^Why bother even making them achievements?? They can't be accomplished by casually playing, and the odds of completing them when you do try are like 1 in 500.
