Get behind the controls of one of many trains that are available.

The simulated effects of this game are quite impressive. Begin the game by getting inside one of the many trains that are available from small trains with only a few cars to long passenger trains. There are various routes available to take including tracks in France and Germany. When the game begins, your train is loaded at the station as you become accustomed to the controls. While you're trying to complete the game in the shortest time possible, you also need to make sure the passengers on your train reach their destinations safely. Details in the game include going outside the train and helping passengers get on and off. The scenery in the game is realistic with changes in the weather seen as well.

There are a few different ways to control the train. One way is to get behind the controls to operate all of the switches, gears, and buttons yourself. There is also an option to control the train in a third-person view. When you're on the track, you have to ensure that the train stays at the designated speed. You can set the speed if you know that you're going on long journeys so that you can look at your surroundings, such as mountains and fields. The weather does change along the way. You can go through rain, snow or sunny conditions. The interior of the train also needs to be examined while you're operating it so that you can solve any issues with passengers or with the train itself before you get behind. The graphics of the game are better than in past editions. Sounds in the game are realistic as well, especially the whistle as it blows while you're going down the track.

  • Stunning graphics
  • Fun sounds

Cons
