The tycoon series has been a hugely popular franchise for the PC market, particularly for fans of the strategy genre. Railroad Tycoon proved to be successful enough to warrant a sequel, so along came Railroad Tycoon 2.

Once again you must take control of a company and create or maintain your very own railroad. There are a number of real-life world locations ranging from America to South Africa. Each and every location has been mapped to provide realistic and accurate landscapes. Graphics can be displayed in high resolution, allowing you to view more of the map onscreen. Also, a map editor gives you the capability to edit and create your own environments and scenarios to suit your own preferences.

Since online gaming is becoming a mainstream medium, Railroad Tycoon 2 has had the feature built into the game. Now you can play against your friends or other tycoon specialists over the Internet. If you don’t have Internet access, then you can play against an onslaught of up to 31 CPU controlled players. Railroad Tycoon 2 has all the features of the original and adds a whole set of unique features, making this game a worthy sequel.
