The Casino Express addon for MSTS is sort of a mixed bag in that it has its good points and it has its bad points too. And I am sorry to say, the bad points outway the good ones. The box makes this addon look very promising, it depicting a proposed route between Barstow CA and Las Vegas NV. The pictures on the back of the box look great, however, this addon does not stand up to the quality shown. On loading, you find yourself inside the Maglev loco and it is quite impressive. Being Maglev, there are no rails to run on and so instantly, this removes the Click-a-ty Clack of the track for the sound. It is realistic but you tend to miss it. The graphics designed for the "city" locations are quite impressive, however, it is beyond this that lets down this addon. Five minutes after starting the Maglev moving, you find yourself travelling across the desert landscape. And that is all there is. After getting your train up to speed, all you can do is sit back and watch. There are no signal lights (that I have found), no complex junctions, no speed limits. There is just one station inbetween the two main stops. There are very few activities. Once your train is moving there is no excitment left. The train just weaves through this desert and that's it. You may be travelling at 300Kph but when there is nothing to look at (and nothing to do!), what's the point?!? My hat goes off to the creators, the "city" locations are very detailed and interesting. But unless you have an interest in what this proposed route will actually look like when (if) built, there is nothing here to attract a train simmer.
