Railroad Tycoon

Microprose 1990

Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

Nowadays everybody relates Sid Meier to Civilization, but there was a time when one of his most characteristic games was not about raising yet another culture, but about building your own railroad empire.


Railroad Tycoon Deluxe

Microprose 1993
Genre: Strategy
Rating: 5/6
Licence: Commercial
System: PC

In 1993, Microprose decided to re-release some of their earlier hits as so-called Deluxe editions. Railroad Tycoon, not an old game by any standards at that point, was one to receive such a treatment. As expected, it is almost exclusively a graphical upgrade, and not even a particularly attractive one; although the screen resolution is increased, apart from a couple of digitized photos at special events, the main art is not actually qualitatively improved. The other main change is the inclusion of three new scenarios: North America (in its entirety), South Africa and South America. The latter two being particularly hard scenarios. They come at the expense of the England scenario which does not appear anymore.
