A surprisingly deep strategy game. In the game you take on the role of a rail road company chairman and plan out your rail roads with the aim of generating bags of money. Interestingly, the game starts with the birth of the rail road and continues through to the present day, making for some interesting and in-depth strategic play.

Emulators tested

Demul (DirectX 10) – Minor glitches on some objects on the map, usually manifesting as a black line shooting up from the object. Game always says that the VMU is full, even when using a completely empty virtual memory card.

Demul (DirectX 11) – As DirectX 10 mode, but videos do not play either.

Makaron T12.7 – Opening movies stutter a little, but there is less graphical corruption in-game. As with Demul, saving and loading to the emulated VMU doesn’t work.
