stick thru the tutorial and it eventually makes.sense.
it seems they overlayed menus in a few places and listed options but not all was clear. also some icons arent self.explanatory.
its a lot like a newer sid Meyers railroads or railroad tycoon "5" per se
the track routing is fun albiet confusing at times but when u get the hang of it its very rewarding. it just sucks that the tuturial doesnt get you to that point efficiently.
in my 47" tv i wish i had options to increase interface size [small text] and adjust more camera settings.
i honestly really like this game now that ive gotten the hang of it. i feel in an update or two it will be more polished once kalypso hears gamers wishes and suggestions
I love simulation games (especially transportation/flight sims), but they missed the mark by forcing a frustrating tutorial. I literally ended up looking on Wikipedia on how signaling works (but you still have to go through the stupid tutorial to begin the game).
The game itself is fun in the freestyle play modes (sandbox/free/scenario), but the forced tutorial for the campaign ruins it. Getting passed the silly motions in that tutorial is a challenge in itself (i.e. not fun, not informative).
A 'skip tutorial' option would make this game worthy of 5-stars,
Really fun and interesting game. I hope they fix the crashing issue. When go free build or get into a scenario with a really large network (IE, when you have a lot of time invested in a game) the Xbox One freezes and brings you back to the home screen. Sometimes you can play a little further but it usually means starting over and choosing a smaller scenario or just never build that big. Amazed, I have been playing video games on consoles since the Atari 2600 and this is the first console game that doesn't appear to have been fully tested. If I wanted to play games to play a game I would have purchased the PC version and run it on Windows. BTW, the PC version has people reporting the same issue with lockups.
But for the good, its addictive, fun, interesting and makes you think and plan ahead! The computer players (who dont bother with signaling) are good enough to keep you aggravated and can be competitive if you get distracted.

PS4 version I got is fully functional like PC just different controls. But I imagine some things might be less cumbersome if it were on PC and with a mouse.
however, if you really dig railways / trains .. and dealing with minutia ... this maybe a game for you!
