À propos de ce jeu

Comprend Railroad Tycoon II et l'extension The Second Century
Ce jeu peut vous transporter de New York à l’Afrique du Sud, de 1804 à l'an 2000 ainsi que d'une condition misérable à celle d'un multimillionnaire adulé.
Avec ce jeu vous allez passer de l'état du parfait équilibre mental à celui du fanatique de la locomotive. Il s'agit d'une véritable simulation ferroviaire et non simplement d'un jeu de stratégie impliquant des voies ferrées. Si il vous prend l'idée de sauter dans le premier avion, une voiture ou le dernier bateau : il vous faut un autre jeu!
Ce jeu est un jeu de train fait pour les fanas des trains par les fanas des trains ! Cette simulation est truffée d'images, de décors et de scènes d'époque fidèles à la légende du rail. L'intelligence artificielle est basée sur des personnages réels et les cartes sont les répliques des données satellite du département géologique des États-Unis.

Configuration requise

    Minimum : Windows 95/98, Pentium 133 (recommandée 166), 16 Mo Ram, 100 Mo d'espace disque, carte graphique avec capacité de résolution 1024x768.

$5? You wont go wrong buying this! I've been playig since it was originaly released way back in 1998, I belive this is the greatest stratagy/train game (board or PC) ever. The graphics arn't REAL bad, I sure wish they would redo it with improved 1920 x 1080 high resalution graphics, those old trains would really look great! As it is though, they still look ok imo. But if you can get past the grapics, you will not be disapointed. Nice atmosphere too.

10/10 as it sits.

Windows 8 with intel i5 and gforce gpu. Works great!

Ahh, Railroad Tycoon II. Another game resurrected from the mists of time and childhood memories of playing this game as a starry-eyed child with my train-obsessed father. Once the shine of nostalgia had worn away a little, however, I found myself able to give a more..objective review of the game. The positives? Well, the music is great, the attention to detail (particularly with the trains and historical aspects) is pretty impressive, and the gameplay, at its core, is quite addictive. As you play, you find yourself eager to expand your railway, to explore the map and find out what locomotive will be unlocked next. There's also an impressive array of scenarios/maps to play, and an amusing level editor. However, one drawback I found is that the game can be rather confusing. There are no proper tutorials, none that I could find anyway (occasional hint boxes hardly count), and it's scarily easy to run out of money, which in turn annoys your investors and nets you a game over. The interface can be rather confusing, and at the risk of sounding stupid, I don't really understand the financial side of the game (bonds and stock, etc) and how that all works. All that being said though, if you can wrap your head around the confusing mechanics, this is still a timeless classic of a game, and very enjoyable. Not the best, but definitely recommended as a cheap time-waster.

This game is kickass! It engages your brain - memory and planning are paramount - while also having an excellent American folk soundtrack of guitars and harmonicas. Daft numbers of scenarios & campaigns, all with inherent replayability, can be boosted to astronomical proportions (https://codeload.github.com/oseparovic/RRT2Maps/zip/master << that's a metric f*ck-tonne of extra maps & scenarios). I have a thing for older games - they tended to be more demanding and more mentally stimulating than modern games - and this fully lives up to those ideals.

The game consists of competing with AI or human-controlled opponents (or not, if that's what you want) to connect trade resources on a map, against the backdrop of a potentially lethal economy and advancing technology. The right scenarios (in the zip I linked to above) will let you go for >150 years - some are even without a time limit - but you typically are presented goals - specific things to achieve by a specific time, in order to get a bronze, silver or gold medal (these goals are usually along the lines of "Connect point x to point y, move twelvety tonnes of cargo K between those two points and amass $------ personal fortune by date z").

I give you fair warning, the graphics aren't going to blow you away, not by a long shot, but the complexity, detail and the intense addictiveness of the game should tickle you if you're prone to being tickled by a game of this type.

I love this game, it can easily eat up a day on the weekend. The graphics while not amazing are just fine for an old game. The random spawning map can make the same scenario extremely hard or very easy, depending on your luck. It has great replay value. If you enjoy a transport/finance type game then this one is a must have for 5 bucks.

This one holds up surprisingly well considering it's over a decade old. Great economic sim and very engaging once you get the hang of things.

This RT2 is older but I have always enjoyed playing it!

The game can be complex or simple and long or short.


If you like tycoon games then you should try this one.

This was a great game when released, but now it's showing its age. It's satisfyingly challenging, especially on the higher difficulty settings.

It's fun laying out your railway and you get a good sense of getting better at the game the more you play it, as you get involved with the more advanced functions, such as personal wealth and the stock market. The differing goals on each level, the changing emphasis depending on the year and the big shift between difficulty levels are easily enough to hold your interest over the long-term. While there's some luck involved, particularly with the economy, success is mostly a case of skill and planning. The economic model is good enough, if not spectacular.

On the downside, the user interface looks and feels like it was designed in 1998 (as it was). It can be hard finding some of the more important functions (or even the existence of them in some cases). I would recommend at least scanning through the manual.

The graphics are perfectly functional - as an isometric rather than a 3D game, they've aged better than most of this vintage. The intra-level cutscenes set the scene for the level quite well. I enjoyed the bluegrass music, even though I'm not a fan of the genre - it fits the pace of the game exactly.

As in common with many games in this genre, there's a "tipping point" at each level where you're sure that you'll be successful. The game has ten speed levels and this comes in very handy at that point.

If you're having trouble deciding, "Railroad Tycoon 3" is definitely the better game, particularly the economic model and user interface. However this can be difficult to get running on modern systems. "Railroads!" is almost a different kind of game, much easier and less in-depth - I didn't like it.

If you like management sims, you should get a lot of enjoyment out of this, particularly as it's so cheap. If you're not sure, or haven't played that style of game much, you'll probably be better off buying something more modern.

Railroad Tycoon 2 is in my opinion the best railroad company simulator there ever was.
It is reasonable in difficulty, graphics did not age too terribly and while it is simplified a bit, the corelations between products and different buildings spawning on the map through time give it endless replayability.
It is on par with Transport Tycoon, so If you liked that one, you will also love this game.

It is obviously very old, so approach with caution, If you never actually heard of it before.

An old classic, filled with nostalgia and train steam. The game ranges from simple difficulties where you just relax, transport goods around and build new tracks, to full fledged industry operations where every dollar must be spent wisely, you can compete with the AI or other players at both the train stations and the financial markets, and the goods must be delivered from and to specific locations to get enough profit out of it.

On the wrong side, the UI would have needed way more tooltips, and the game is generally obscure in what does what and why.

Overall, a good choice if you like trains and that old game vibe.

Used to play this game years ago and it has aged well. A fun and challenging game! Would definately recommend it. For me it has more replyability then RTIII, but that is probably me being sentimental!

If you are after a game that you have to use your brain and work things out, have a strategy plan then this is a nice little game for you. It might be one of the oldies but thats also what makes it appealing.
You will have a blast.

An excellent simulator, with a unified aesthetic and enjoyable playstyle if you normally enjoy sim and strategy games. The visuals might appear outdated, but I feel that the graphics lend a certain "toy train" feel to the whole experience. A good time all a round.
