Really good game. So much realism and the graphics are fantastic. There's a lot to be done with this and the number of addons so far is great.

However, this all does come at a price; the system load is pretty heavy, you're going to need a good system to get this running at 30 fps or more. I did have this working on a basic system with just 2GB RAM and an integrated GPU, but the graphics has to be minimal and choosing any of the new engine technology options was just suicide. But, if you have a powerful system then you really should get this. If you can't play it, then try older games such as Railworks 2 or even go retro with Microsoft Train Simulator (I found this one will work on almost any system).

However, I don't like the lack of options when actually driving a train. You get to choose a train and then it offers you some preset routes/activities. That's great, but what if I want to just choose a route, a starting station, a heading and a consist? But hey, this is just me nitpicking, enjoy!
