Railway Empire is not for every player because it doesn't know how to introduce them to its complex mechanics but, despite that, it is an amazing strategic game that any fan of the genre will surely like. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-ldb4'); });

An awesome way to enjoy the traing infraestructures building, to learn hoy to expand an authentic industrial "empire" and also a good way to learn how the transporting world works. Long, deep and interesting for fans of the management.

Overall, Railway Empire is a good game which should appeal to newcomers more than seasoned veterans of the genre.

Railway Empire is a game that has a lot of promise, plenty of substance, and can be enjoyable to those who have 20ft train sets in their basements. However, most will find this game poorly designed, easily finished, and a tedious use of their time. Suddenly doing laundry sounds like a good idea.

Railway Empire is a strong but shallow entry into the railway management style of games that has gone long ignored. With a few slight downfalls, primarily as a result of the game only offering limited maps and time periods to operate in, it can go by a little too quick and become repetitive. However, the journey to get to that stage can be enthralling as it offers a high level of tactical thinking as you interlink your network of rails. Strategic purchases of businesses lets you get a leg up over opposition businesses in a race to become the dominant company. Railway Empire is a very good game in its genre, without a shadow of a doubt. It could become a great game, should Gaming Minds Studios open it up that little bit more.

Solid railway game in the style of Ascaron economic simulations.

Railway Empire is a good management game, interesting,deep and complex. But it is clearly not for beginners despite its presence on PS4 and Xbox One. The tutorial is too frail and we often end up going around in circles before finding the solution which make a run extremely time-consuming and artificially long. Despite that, this title has many interesting game mechanics, in particular the economy system which is a perfect representation of modern capitalism and what the history of the American railway might have been.

A tycoon about building railways in 19th-century America. Railway Empire is a great addition to the genre, although badly designed controls make the experience a little worse.

Despite slightly unintuitive controls, Railway Empire offers just enough depth and detail to make it worth a play. We can't help wishing for a much more encompassing railway management sim though.

A passionate and capable title with some pretty egregious flaws.

The core of the game is sound, it just needs to be more upfront with the player about what it's doing. It's really frustrating for me because I keep booting it up and I keep playing it, but eventually tangled web of systems gets the better of me and I've got to close it in a rage.

The game plays beautifully, is perfectly comfortable with a controller, is expansive, and is both enjoyable and illuminating. Everything that a good simulation game should be, really.

Railway Empire is simply one of the best real-time strategy experiences that I've ever played on a console and juggling its many rewarding tasks in order to succeed in building a nation is nothing short of satisfying.

On the first glance, Railway Empire is an interesting addition to the tycoon genre. However, a closer look reveals plenty of issues that make it hard to recommend at retail price. It could definitely find its fans, though.

Railway Empire is one of the best economic simulators I've ever played. The complexity of the game can be adjusted so that everyone can enjoy the game to the fullest. This game will keep you awake at night. One more scenario?

Needless to say, Railway Empire is a delight. It may not be perfect, with some clunky UI navigation and a mildly underworked first-person perspective, but on the whole the game is everything that it promises to be. It makes a visible attempt to cater to every kind of player that might come its way, from train enthusiasts to avid strategy and tycoon gaming fans.

Maintains a certain degree of complexity while also being simple enough for newcomers to enjoy the experience. It does suffer from a bad UI and a general lack of sound, but still enjoyable regardless.
