Railroad Tycoon II 2 for Sony PlayStation 1 (PS1)
So, you fancy yourself a businessman, eh? See how you stack up against the real fat cats as you try to turn a locomotive and few feet of track into an empire. The game spans from 1804 to beyond the year 2020, setting you off on 18 campaigns of varying difficulty. There are over 60 different engine types and 34 cargo-train types at your disposal, but how you use them will determine just how powerful you are. The game begins with a tutorial and then jumps right into the first campaign. You'll first need to decide which type of track and bridges you want to use, trying to make the most of your money without building a faulty line. Once you begin to purchase trains and plan their routes, you'll see why many a man went broke in this business: finding open areas with sizable enough populations is no simple task. As the game progresses you'll actually be able to sell stock in your company, and if you play your cards right you might just get filthy rich.
