Critic Reviews for Railway Empire

Railway Empire is not for every player because it doesn't know how to introduce them to its complex mechanics but, despite that, it is an amazing strategic game that any fan of the genre will surely like. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('div-gpt-ad-ldb4'); });

A game than simulation managers will love, and especially classic train lovers, that offers some interesting ideas, very well adapted to Nintendo Switch and very polished in some aspects, like the spanish voiceover. But if you came here looking for great graphics, forget about that. What it's worst is that it also has random crashings.

An awesome way to enjoy the traing infraestructures building, to learn hoy to expand an authentic industrial "empire" and also a good way to learn how the transporting world works. Long, deep and interesting for fans of the management.

Overall, Railway Empire is a good game which should appeal to newcomers more than seasoned veterans of the genre.

Railway Empire is a game that has a lot of promise, plenty of substance, and can be enjoyable to those who have 20ft train sets in their basements. However, most will find this game poorly designed, easily finished, and a tedious use of their time. Suddenly doing laundry sounds like a good idea.

Railway Empire is a strong but shallow entry into the railway management style of games that has gone long ignored. With a few slight downfalls, primarily as a result of the game only offering limited maps and time periods to operate in, it can go by a little too quick and become repetitive. However, the journey to get to that stage can be enthralling as it offers a high level of tactical thinking as you interlink your network of rails. Strategic purchases of businesses lets you get a leg up over opposition businesses in a race to become the dominant company. Railway Empire is a very good game in its genre, without a shadow of a doubt. It could become a great game, should Gaming Minds Studios open it up that little bit more.

Railway Empire is a good management game, interesting,deep and complex. But it is clearly not for beginners despite its presence on PS4 and Xbox One. The tutorial is too frail and we often end up going around in circles before finding the solution which make a run extremely time-consuming and artificially long. Despite that, this title has many interesting game mechanics, in particular the economy system which is a perfect representation of modern capitalism and what the history of the American railway might have been.
