Microsoft Train Simulator
has been developed by the team responsible for Microsoft's flight simulator range and shows the same high attention to detail in both graphics and gameplay. The latter is similar to
's, giving you the chance to control whatever level of detail you want--from the pressure gauges to stoking the engine. Of course, the un-technical among us can just take the train out for a spin and keep it simple across the six world tracks that Microsoft initially offers. Graphics, like the flight sims', are very impressive, but will need a powerful machine to get the full beauty while chugging along in the countryside.
Apart from the free reign on the tracks, there are a number of missions, or tasks, that you've got to complete, ranging from simply getting from A to B to rescuing a train
à la Thomas the Tank Engine
. With more depth than most, this game is for all comers alike; whether you've been following trains for the last 50 years or this is your first foray, the learning curve is there. Okay, so you can't back left at a whim, nor fly by the control tower at mach six, but the thousands of train aficionados out there are sure to have their imaginations stoked by the six tracks, nine locomotives and track editor.
