Computer Gaming World,
"Rail fans should love Railroad Tycoon II:
The Second Century. Not only does this comprehensive expansion set offer
new industries to service and a campaign of 18 scenarios )six representing
wartime and the post-WWII era, six representing the technology shift from steam
to diesel, and six representing the near future), but it also offers new
locomotives, easier track-laying, and better cargo-handling.
"This add-on doesn't quite reach the coveted
five-star status we'd like to give it, because the game still lacks an UNDO
command. Even with the improved interface, it's possible to click in the wrong
place and spend unnecessary money on track that must immediately be bulldozed.
Still, Railroad Tycoon II: The Second Century enjoyably expands the
horizons of its predecessor, much like railroading expanded the world's
economies in the early to mid-century."
