Transport Fever 2 review

It was day two when I finally contracted transport fever, with the classic symptoms: the aching posterior, the swelling of the pride. I’d built a circular railway, like the kind you see in children’s sets, to connect the mines and factories along the shore of Lake Baikal in Siberia. Then I’d asked my drivers to load their gondolas only halfway with coal, leaving space for…

Transport Fever 2 infecting PC this year

You're up to date on your transport vaccinations, right? Always get the jab for Reclining Arthritis before catching a plane? Won't head into London unless you're protected against Carpal Underground Syndrome, Ticks Please, Handrail Herpes, and Mind The Gap Crack? Good. But be warned: a mighty new infection is coming and there may be no protection. Following experiments infecting people with a love of micromanaging…

Trains, planes, and tycooning in Transport Fever

Train Fever review

In Train Fever you don't play Basil Batchley-Lytton, a Holmes-style epidemiologist investigating a gruesome skin disease sweeping Victorian Britain. Pressing 'h' doesn't hail the nearest hansom cab. Pressing 'm' doesn't bring up a microscope view. The climactic scene doesn't take place in the horsehair storeroom of the GWR upholstery shop in Swindon. Accept these crushing disappointments - recognise that £20 has secured you a compelling Transport…

What A Lovely Way To Burn: Train Fever

Trains! Yes. Because I went to university in the late '00s and am awful, I have a poster on my wall depicting a line drawing of a boy that says "Keep calm and like trains." For similar reasons, I have never played a train simulator or management game. Train Fever is the most provocative so far, not least because of the name. Literal train fever…
