5.0 out of 5 stars Exceeded expectations, 25 April 2012

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Train Giant (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
I was really dithering about whether to get this game or not, my previous purchase of building and transportation games have been disasters, but as a lover of the original A-Train, I thought, why not. After several false starts (the release date got pushed back a few times, and then when finally released, Amazon didn't have the stock to send), it finally arrived.

Well, I was not disappointed. No crap DRM to worry about, it was a quick install, and I was up and running. The tutorial left a lot to be desired (aka non-existent), but as a previous player of A-Train, I had an idea of the quirky way the trains run, and I was up and running. I managed to amend my first freight route, add a few tracks, and that was the start of a wonderful relationship. The graphics were beautiful and so far, the game is glitch free (except the occasional Japanese reference in the game, but so far, none that are game spoilers)

My only concern is that the lack of tutorial may turn some people off, it's one of those you've got to read the manual or be a previous player of the original A-Train to know what to do. Putting that aside, this game is bound to give days and weeks of entertainment.

Oh, and the fabulous bonus of this game, is once it's installed, you don't need the CD in the drive. The number of games that force that was so annoying, but pleasurably this game doesn't need it, so I can come and go as I please. Bliss :)
