I have been playing this game for months and I'm at level 32, the graphics are great as well as the story line but in order to advance there are many things that need to be done as you play along, in order to keep things running you have to build mines, quarries, warehouses, towns and many other things to keep up on supply and demand, this supply is used to maintain everything, not only does it take a long time to get the maximum amount, you have to use these resources to repair the buildings, trains, tracks and make upgrades as well as making parts, everything breaks down and must be rebuilt quite often using more resources that takes more time to make because you have used all the supplies from that source and you have to start from scratch which also comes at a cost of silver and or gold which is the main purchase item, if you want to advance quickly-it will cost you dearly. I liked it until now because I am going no where fast, it is no longer fun and is getting annoying because of the cost of supplies to maintain everything is just ridiculous. Also every time you start an operation the screen zooms in, very annoying.
I would like to see lower costs of recourses to maintain, build, craft and make upgrades and expansions. Ta ta for now.
Huh? What? Why? Oh... MONEY REQUIRED!
I'm a fairly smart guy, degrees and I'm fairly technical. But this game threw me a curve ball! I couldn't figure out how to play it! You can't do this or that because you have to do a "quest" first. Can't do anything because of one thing or another, so I just kept pushing buttons and checking stuff out. I kept ending up at the "buy gold" screen. I'm not opposed to spending money on a game... If I like it. But this is the FIRST game I've ever played that looked free but then wouldn't let you start playing without spending real money. Most let you start,meet you interested, and then you spend money. At first I was thinking now way! But yes, you must buy gold with real money to play.
That said, what I could see looks wonderful! The game has great graphics, pretty scenes. And looks like it could be fun. Maybe I should have played more instead of deleting the game after a few hours (several attempts on different days), maybe I should have paid money to check it out. I guess I'll never know. I just felt cheated, or tricked. Why don't they just charge .99¢ and give you a started pack of gold? I don't know. But y'all should know that the game isn't free. You can't play it at all for free. Period.
As a railfan, I was looking for a game about trains like Sid Meier's Railroad Tycoon, and from a technical standpoint this game is very deficient. The creators obviously DON'T SPEAK ENGLISH, with small-yet-annoying grammatical errors and ZERO knowledge of US (or British) railroad terminology. For example, there is no such thing as an "open boxcar"; it's called a gondola. And the way basic parts combine to make advanced parts is just silly.
On the positive side - good graphics and that you can get pretty far for free, I guess the other reviewers didn't have enough patience.
