third game in this multi-million selling series is building
up a full head of steam. With a fully realised 3D gaming world
scaling from eye in the sky views of entire continents down
to detailed close-ups of locomotives, buildings and landscapes
you can play 25 scenarios to recreate magnificent feats of railroading
history. Use the 40 plus locomotives, 35 plus different cargoes
and more than excess of 150 buildings to build your railroad
with a modest sum of money, gamers start Railroad Tycoon
3 at the beginning of the golden era of the railways.
Make the right decisions and you can move onwards and upwards
as you lay new track, break into major cities, buy the latest
locomotives and leave your competitors bankrupt.
who has always wanted to build their own model railway in
the loft, but never had the money or time to do so, might
like to take a look at this game. You can purchase and run
more than 40 different trains from the original Planet
and Norris 4-2-0 to monstrous late steam engines, from the
4-6-6-4 Challenger to the ultramodern EuroStar bullet train.
If that means nothing to you then you are probably not going
to be as enthusiastic as the many trainspotters out there
who will no doubt be drooling at the thought of being able
to run their own railnetwork - chances are you'll probably
do a better job of it than the majority of the real life franchise
companies out there at the moment.
Once you get bored of playing on your own, you can play against
other players online. The game has multi-player support, including
an integrated chat and matchmaking service which adds greatly
to the gameplay.
graphics look pretty impressive and this is incredibly good
fun once you get to grips with it - which is no easy feat.
However there is a question over how long it will be before
you get bored and want to move on to something else. We advise
getting hold of a copy to try before you buy - it really is
a game that you will love or hate.
game that all employees of Railtrack should be made to play!
