(Other stories by Michael J. Hammel)
"Like Loki's first port, Civilization: Call To Power, Railroad Tycoon II isn't a shoot-em-up-style game. It's all about strategy, using your head to build an empire. But unlike CivCTP, which did include characters that would battle, this game is pure strategy."
"Railroad Tycoon II Gold Edition, which goes for $49.95 if ordered from the Loki Web site, is a combination of the standard Railroad Tycoon II game plus the Second Century Expansion Pack. The packaging contains one CD, a fold-out reference guide, and a 100+ page user manual. A reference card for the Second Century Expansion Pack is also included. Although the manual contains quite a bit of information, it really doesn't take you beyond the absolute basics of game play. The fold-out reference card, however, comes in quite handy when you need to look up important game information."
"The Second Century Expansion Pack is a collection of 18 new scenarios divided into three distinct historical eras. The scenarios don't change the way the game is played, but they do provide new terrain and city maps. These maps not only determine the layout of the world in which you build your railroads, but they also determine the rules of play."
