About This Game

Train Fever is a railroad-focused business simulation game. In other words, it's a modern-day Transport Tycoon with procedural content and a sophisticated city simulation.

"It’s the year 1850, and there are great times ahead! Establish a transport company and be its manager. Build infrastructure such as railways and stations, purchase transportation vehicles and manage lines. Fulfill the people’s needs and watch cities evolve dynamically.

Train Fever runs on an engine specifically developed for this game. The engine has a great innovative scope and is specialized in procedural content and urban simulation. A key point is the fact that there is no grid that game objects have to be aligned to, allowing for a great degree of freedom.

Features

  • Randomly generated, modifiable terrain with realistic dimensions
  • Advanced passenger simulation
  • Dynamically simulated urban development
  • Procedurally generated buildings
  • No grid - that is, the game world is not limited to 90 (or 45) degree angles
  • Vehicles from more than 150 years of transportation history
  • Passenger and freight transport
  • Achievements and experience points
  • Detailed 3D graphics
  • Freely adjustable zoom factor

Among the great transport games. A great take on the classic transport tycoon, but with a focus on trains like locomotion! I like it and cannot wait for transport fever. If you like games like this, buy it, please, I never regret my purchase whilst on a fever binge.

For people who don't kniw wether or not to get this game I would suggest do not. I love this game, one of my favourites. Although there is quite a few things that get in the way of making it perfect, I have never had any issues that other people talk about. Why do I say then do not buy it?... Well Transport Fever (This games much need sequal) is coming at the end of this year and is improving on almost every feture of this already good game as well as adding loads more including air and sea transportation. Just wait until that game is out instead of getting this even though it is really good. Thanks for reading!

With Mods, this game is highly addictive. I just played 50 hours straight, without batting an eyelid. I think my house was demolished, and a new one was built around me, and I am oblivious, playinh Train Fever in this new families vents. If you happen to be that family, send food.

(I reccomend.)

Soooo tired of spending hard earned money on games that look real good, BUT, the game play is a whole other story, or should I say Nightmare!.

This is one of those games. I can sum it up in one word...FRUSTRATING! The concept for a railroad "simulator" is ok, but I feel it lacks the "meat" of such a sim. There is no depth. The biggest frustration in my opinion, though, is the building aspect. I grow sick and tired of "jumping through hoops", and wrestling with the building interface in order to build a simple road and train network. This is the biggest part of the Train Fever...the building of a train network, but trying to do this in this game leaves me saying a string of words I don't care to repeat and replacing my mouse because, well its a Logitech, and because I threw it against the wall!

It is another example of developers doing a half a$$ed job, in order to make a profit...very sad!

I guess I will stick to OpenTTD!

Date of writing this review: 20/10/14. Some of my criticisms may have been addressed by the time you are reading this.

Firstly, I would like to state that I got this game 2 days ago, and I already have 16 hours. In my opinion, the game is the best tycoon game since Transport Tycoon Deluxe.

However, there are a few negatives that I would like to address, and because of these few negatives, people are not enjoying the game, or buying it.

- Dumb Name. Why didn't they call it Transport Fever!?! Would have made much more sense as the game is not only about building train lines.

- Minimal Tutorial. Despite this game being a very complex game, the tutorial is almost laughable. However, there are several community made tutorials to which aided me in learning the game, my favourite one being this one

- Rail Building could do some work. In order to build railway, you must do it in several chunks. This is as the game tries to average out the terrain, so that the rail will not go on a gradient - which can cost an absurd amount of money if the rail goes for too long.

- No Airports, or Boats. The airports I can somewhat understand, however the boats I do not. Each map has a river along it. It is crazy to think that despite this, they didn't put in a chance to add boat lines! I do hope that they add these features into a future update, or even a DLC.

- Only 4 Resources. I understand that with this, they were trying to go for the simplistic approach so that the learning curve isn't to big, however at least give me a chance in a settings menu to have more. The game does have excellent modding support though, and so I am sure that people will make mods in order to address this issue.


Once you look over these issues, it can be seen that the game is amazing. All up I am going to give this game an 8/10, and would still reccomend you to buy it, despite these issues. Also, if they do fix up these key issues, it could easily be a 10/10. Enjoy the game, and should you have any further questions regarding the game, feel free to add me and ask me some questions!

(This is my first proper review, so could you leave me some feedback? Thanks guys!)

When this game first came out it was a little buggy, and people expected huge things from a developers début title. Which is a silly thing to do for any new developer. (I blame the amazing trailer)


Pro:
- You can't build wildly inaccurate track as you can in most games, the track has to be quite straight and realistic causing most initial plans that you would try to reuse from other games like TT and RT to be thrown out almost instantly and real planning to come in.
- It's quite easy to suddenly turn from profit to loss and loss to profit depending on how badly you have planned that upgrade.
- The nice looks means you get that enjoyable feeling watching trains whiz past the camera at multiple angles.

Middle ground:
- The micro management is nothing amazing compared to other titles and possibly a little bit simple, but when you consider that it's a début title and they are not asking for €60 it's not bad.
- Simple, but long game. The game is quite simplistic so don't expect it to be a challenging, it's more relaxing than challenging. Once you've figured out the game there is very little to do other than just keep expanding and improving efficiency; It doesn't detract from the game-play, just don't expect things to change with every new game.

Con:
- The game is pretty simple, and easy to win once you figure out what it's people want. As much as to be expected with a début title.
- Town and resource placement is almost equidistant resulting in the same planning working for every map, and every town. So after you have a working strategy it will never fail, which negates it's replay value.
- No random events. If you've put a line down that makes a profit, it will continue to do so unless you change something.
- No AI companies. It gets lonely with no competition.
- The collision detection in this game is quite poor and lack of certain types of junction and crossroad make some types of planning impossible.


Conclusion:
This may not be an amazing AAA game, but compared to what else is available it's okay. The graphics certainly make up for the lack of content in the game, and if you are into modding, (which is rather easy by the way) you can add plenty of additional content.
Even though this game is quite simple and doesn't contain much content, the developers continuously upgraded and improved the game around it's fans, and as such the features it does have are quite enjoyable.

There isn't much replay capability once you've found the most efficient engine, and built all the lines. The map generator is rather simple, and although new maps are initially a challenge. Once you've built a profitable company with a dozen lines, the rest of the map loses it's importance other than just to "connect everything". An AI opponent would be all it would have needed to keep the momentum going.

I'd recommend this to anyone that liked games like Railroad Tycoon or Transport Tycoon, but never really got into the heavy micro management or accounting side of things. If you just want to play with some trains, this is a good game for you.

These guys are joking if they want to release the sequel. The game is totaly buggy. I don't understant why I cannot send the cargo train to pasanger train station, it's a joke? Realy you must build cargo trainstation and passenger train station around the city, it's crazy. And to build some train/road crossroads is a real problem.
The concept of the game is super but the realization is horrible. It looks like the developers never played the game.

A game that cannot keep running on a high end mac (according to specs) I cannot advise.
Allthough the maps and freedom of gameplay are nice, if it crashes all the time fun ends.
