5.0 out of 5 stars Great game, definitely worth a try April 15, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm so glad I bought this game despite all the negative reviews.

Pros:
- Excellent graphics (for this genre)
- Great gameplay (challenging, interesting and reasonably realistic)
- Huge variety of vehicles (from horses to trucks to trains to ships to airplanes to blimps and everything in between)
- Strong financial and industrial model
- Realistic yet fun
- Signals for railroads
- Visible city growth
- Competent AI

Cons:
- Eats memory as your network expands (slows down your system when you exit the game)
- Little help info (although there's a user manual on the website)
- Poor game music (if that matters)

I've previously played Transport Tycoon Deluxe, Railroad Tycoon 2 and Locomotion, and Transport Giant is far better than the rest. TTD and Locomotion have pathetic graphics which completely neutralizes any benefit of good gameplay, while RT2 is plain unrealistic in its lack of signals, deals with trains only and cities never grow beyond hutments!

This little-known gem is one of the best strategy games I've played, especially among the tycoon types. Granted, it's not perfect and there's a lot of negative publicity around it, but the least you can do is download the demo and try it for yourself.

3.0 out of 5 stars Graphics over content October 15, 2013
Verified Purchase
This game is ok. If you just want to run road vehicles and have graphics be pretty this game is for you.
PROS:
-Good graphics for the age
-Unique vehicles and content (Austrailia) - stagecoaches and such
CONS
- No manual included
- Designing tracks for the trains is TEDIOUS and makes one want to pull their hair out
- Map is all but useless

If you love these kinds of games OpenTTD - with hundreds of customizable settings and hundreds of player made downloadable tweaks is WAY better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun game! July 22, 2013
By Dimitry
Verified Purchase
This is a game that I missed when it came out long ago but I'm so glad that I was able to find it again.
Might not hold up graphically to today's blockbuster hits but it has far more substance and depth than most of those blockbusters put together.

For this price it would be a crime for any fan of the genre not to pick up this classic and at least try it out.

2.0 out of 5 stars Buggy game, pass on it. October 18, 2012
Verified Purchase
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
I like this sort of game, but it is quirky and buggy. I kept trying but finally was too frustrated. I wish someone would put out a real one of these, but maybe it is too much of a niche market.

( Add Jan 2013: I was not aware of "OpenTTD" at the time, Google it )
