    "I became familiar with Railroad Tycoon thanks to a friend and I think the series has gotten better. Not only are the graphics visually appealing but I also find that there is more to work on in creating a scenario. Plus I love the idea of controlling the train."

    "As a kid I always loved trains and playing with them and setting up tracks and stuff like that. As an adult, I don't really play with toys anymore so I was hoping to find a computer train game to play. After searching for a while to see what was available on Steam, I stumbled upon Train Fever and was completely blown away. I loved the game play and how you can develop your train system in a simulated way just as I used to do with toys as a kid. I would recommend this game to everyone. "

    "I personally am a huge fan of trains. When I came across this game on steam, the trailer alone was enough to have me blown away. You can make the train /railroad station of your dreams. It is very visually appealing on top of the content itself being very rich, your mind is the limit on this game and I would definitely recommend it."

    "Sid Meier is back, and as always this is a great game. It's no pirates, but what really is. If you enjoyed the other Sid Meier games then this one is for you too. If you haven't played any then this is a good place to start."

    "You really can play anything on Steam. I found Mini Metro where you design a subway and keep the trains running while opening new stations and maximizing the resources you are given. There is something oddly soothing about this game. I did not think a subway creation game would be so fun and satisfying. "

    "This game is awesome! Ticket to Ride is an awesome board game that you can play with multiple friends, moving throughout North America's train routes, and collecting cards as you go. The first time I played I was hooked. The games last a perfect amount of time, not too long, not too short, and the objective is simple and clear. Connect the longest train route, spanning cities across North America. This is a fun family friendly game that we have used at home on many a game night!!"
