Critic Reviews for RAILGRADE

Those who crave a good logic puzzle and get their kicks from solving logistical nightmares will find a lot to love in Railgrade.

Railgrade doesn't try to recreate the railway management sim game, but it polishes and bolsters what is there to become one of the better examples of this niche genre. The story, light as it tends to be, pokes fun at late-stage capitalism without it becoming the sole focus of the game. It falls short of greatness due to repetition and a lack of depth in its later hours, but there is still more than enough here for resource management sim fans to not feel like they've been taken for a ride.

RAILGRADE is a fun, low-key simulation game. They take train sims to a whole new level, though it can get repetitive after a little while. Still, it's satisfying to play (and watch the trains) that you'll still get a good amount of hours out of it.

Railgrade is so good at what it does, despite relying only on its campaign.

The management and simulation of trains is still fun, and in this game it is also enriched by the development of cities and the addition and improvement of buildings. The complex extensive campaign will be appreciated mainly by creative and at the same time patient players.

RAILGRADE is a superb sim that acts more like a logic puzzle game in many of its more elaborate scenarios. So, if you enjoy tinkering with routes and managing resources for optimal efficiency then you'll have a great time with this choo-choo.

"Railgrade" is an absolute must for players who like to trim a system for efficiency. Borrowing from games like "Factorio", "Satisfactory" or even the more abstract "Magnum Opus", "Railgrade" pushes itself to the top of the genre thanks to charming presentation, short but crisp missions and an excellent price-performance ratio.

RAILGRADE presents itself as a strategy game; after playing, I think there is also a bit of puzzling involved as you work out the best route for your trains to travel. In addition, the game isn’t overly complicated but offers a good challenge nevertheless with plenty of levels to complete.
