I spent about 15 hours with the beta and now about 4 hours with the release version. First of all: Railway Empire has succeeded. br>
I waited a long time for a worthy successor of Railroad Tycoon and here he is now. Pleasantly complex and yet clearly... arranged, I build huge route systems on large maps. With the help of many adjusting screws I optimize the transport of goods and passengers. I can build industries, make cities grow and there is so much to explore. The track construction is easy to handle and simply fun. I needed a certain training period to really get to know all the possibilities. On the other hand, in the third campaign mission, I also talked about 'new'. Features can look forward ;-) Railway Empire is not a shallow game, like Sid Meiers Railroads. The game has good handling, clean technology, good sound and music. br>
A recommendation from me for fans of railway and construction strategy games.
