Enjoyable simulation game

Strengths: Unique! Good graphics, easy to learn

Weakness: NA

I found this to be a pretty unique game/simulation. You only need to learn a few things start playing and you can get into detailed scenarios if you like. Not an action game (as you might imagine) but enjoyable nonetheless. My 7 year old likes to play it too.

Great game

Strengths: Graphics, tons of scalability

Weakness: Lots of small glitches and bugs.

This is a great game, but not one full of action. It has great graphics, and the tools provided with the retail version allow anyone with a bit of skill and knowhow to create their own routes and trains. There are many places online where you can download additional things. Some user made routes dont work and make train sim crash, so be careful which ones you get.

Train Simulator

It's widely known around the office that I don't think much of civilian flight sims. While I can get no end of enjoyment out of Combat Flight Simulator, piloting a Cessna from Seatac to SFO just seems to bore me. I felt the same way approaching this game. But after playing around with Microsoft's Train Simulator for a few weeks, I finally get what all the fuss is about with the...
