    Seems a bit pricey for early access and what look to be simple, sprite/bitmap graphics. Reminiscent of that "Bahn" 2D sim which was kicking around some years ago.

    Well, what else do you expect? I'd be surprised if it's even got Wales in it.


    It has received several thumbs-down on Steam reviews, one of them very well written and with explanations as to why.
    In essence: too expensive, too much micro-managing; minimal tutorial and insufficient explaining what is required.

    Yeah I can't stand micro-managing. Thanks for letting me know I'll avoid that one.

    Even Workers & Resources Soviet Republic which I thought was really cool as it dealt with power grids, trains, commodities, etc. has way too much micro-managing. Another one now that I think of it is Transport Fever.

    Too me any of those tycoon, or operations style sims or games need to have logical AI that deals with the every day tasks. If you are a CEO you may plan out new expansions etc. But you shouldn't be resonsible for every aspect of the operation (that is why you hire people who manage these things). Different if you're a smaller operation like a short line for example where you would be the only manager but you have much less on your plate.

    Thanks

    Sean
