Railway Empire

Lead your Railway Empire to success by establishing a comprehensive rail network and optimizing transportation of passengers and goods.

Railway Empire is a train tycoon strategy game made by Gaming Minds Studios and published by Kalypso Media Digital. Create an elaborate and wide-ranging rail network, purchase over 40 different trains modelled in extraordinary detail, and buy or build railway stations, maintenance buildings, factories and tourist attractions to keep your travel network ahead of the competition. However, you can’t just build and research your way to the top – the competition never sleeps, and to keep your business on track you’ll have to survive against up to three rival tycoons. To get to the top you may have to resort to more cutthroat tactics as you attack and sabotage your opponents through raids and industrial espionage. You’ll also need to hire and manage your workforce if you want to ensure an efficient train service, whilst also develop over 300 technologies ranging from mechanical improvements to the trains themselves to workplace infrastructures and advanced amenities as you progress through five eras of technological innovations.

Railway Empire Review

7.4 Total Score

Railway Empire successfully fills the void left by Railroad Tycoon 15 years ago, managing to offer a very playable experience. An awesome way to enjoy the training infrastructure building, to learn how to expand an authentic industrial "empire" and also a good way to learn how the transporting world works. Long, deep and interesting for fans of management. The game plays beautifully, is perfectly comfortable with a controller, is expansive, and is both enjoyable and illuminating. With a few slight downfalls, primarily as a result of the game only offering limited maps and time periods to operate in, it can go by a little too quick and become repetitive. However, the journey to get to that stage can be enthralling as it offers a high level of tactical thinking as you interlink your network of rails. Railway Empire is simply one of the best real-time strategy experiences that I've ever played and juggling its many rewarding tasks in order to succeed in building a nation is nothing short of satisfying. My conductor hat is off.
