Add in online multiplayer support for up to four wannabe tycoons, and you've got the best railroading sim since the original Railroad Tycoon. Some gamers may find Sid Meier's Railroads! a little on the simplistic side, but it makes for a nice, light snack.

Overall, Railroads! is a fun experience that's suitable for anyone who likes trains and/or has fond memories of train sets. The challenges lay more in railway planning and competitive design than any hardcore economic simulations. Creating a rail network is simple as can be thanks to the intuitive track laying interface and supply chains are simple to figure out.

Sid Meier's Railroads is a game that comes frustratingly close to excellence without ever justifying such a tag. Though the gameplay has depth and simplicity, it often feels more like a multiplayer game with single-player tacked on, than a genuine single-player title in its own right. Without any kind of campaign mode there's a significant lack of structure and incentive, and this restricts Railroad's appeal, making it a fun, but ultimately short-lived experience.
