Golden Rails: Tales of the Wild West is rated 4.7 out of 5 by 22.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Purchased! Fun Fun Fun! After the hour trial was up, I ended up wanting to play more! So I purchased it on a bogo day with some birthday money (haven't purchased a new game in years), and I find myself not being able to stop playing it!! It's pretty fun! Like the music as well, and how each stage has it's own dynamics. If I could change one thing (if they make another one), it would probably be that resources are collected automatically, and you don't have to hover over them to collect. It doesn't take away from the game, but would be a nice upgrade. Other than that, this game is super fun and addictive! Love the added train aspect. Highly recommend trying this game! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very good TM game, like they used to be! I like that it's not a CE, first of all, and that we get 50 levels for the price of a standard game. Besides that it's a very nicely-done, fun game. So many TMs are just the same old same old, this one felt fresh, it had some new ideas mixed in with the regular (with the train stations, for example). If you like TM games, this is definitely one to try!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Golden Rails: Tale of the wild west I have been a member of big fish for 12 years and have played and bought numerous time management games. I have to say this is the best game I have ever played it has everything you could want, gorgeous graphics, collections, there is also a little owl to find on each level and there is the bandit shoot em ups and building and clearing all the mess. It is very much like Gold Rush as in the quality of the game. But that is where it stops there is so much more to do with this game. I cant wait for the next one. Going to play it again tomorrow. Excellent game :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Once you figure it out...It's great! It took me quite a few repeats on the low levels to really get a handle on this game, as every level is so different and introducing new features there's a lot to take in. But that's what makes this a great game. It is a gather, build and meet goals TM, but there are lots of novel features (bits of quite a few games by this developer). Firstly the railroad is the main feature. There is a train that delivers recources to the main platform that you buy with the gold from your houses..but there are also small stations that it drops stuff off to you free of charge. And on every level till you get your first delivery you have no idea which resource (food, ore, wood etc) it is actually going to bring you. So it keeps your interest just hoping for something special lol Once you have an idea what the train is bringing..then its pure strategy. You must do it the right way, right upgrades, right direction and then stuff like remembering to actually put a worker in the production buildings you built. There is a fellow who sells you food for cash, and a sherrif and robbers (requiring a jail) and extra resources can be found by chopping trees, digging ore or gold so you are not totally reliant on either the buildings nor the train. So lots of running around, lots of thinking and plenty of fun once you get the flow of it. There are three modes including relax, but I find that just normal is plenty enough challenge for me. Every level has something a little different and it makes you look forward to what may be in store. I think its great, but play the demo and give yourself a chance to find your rhythm. Enjoy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A cursor change makes all the difference When I first started this game it starts with the hand cursor and I had real problems with it making the game very difficult to play (For me anyway) but then Joybelle told me to change the cursor and I did to the arrow and it was a different came much better. This has everything I want in a TM game and more. I loved the one stop games with the trains and this just improves on that in its own way. They even throw in collectable owls which are a bit hard to find so to get the most out of your demo look for them after you have bought. This is quite challenging from the start and you have 50 levels to enjoy. If you like TM games you are going to love this one. Enjoy

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Game! This game is like a cross between Rush for Gold and Next Stop - Both of which are my favorites. I really like the variations they have included here, like the small stations that supplement your supplies. This is just different enough to be very entertaining. I purchased after only 6 levels. Like this game a lot. Keep a look out for OWLS!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great TM Game,Train and Western Theme, One of the Best!! Thank you developers and Big Fish!! I have been waiting for a TM game such as this one for a long time. The Western theme is something I really love and to have a train also!! What more can you want? We need more TM games like this one. I am tremendously enjoying this game that has all of the fun factors: beautiful scenery, great music, excellent story, and a relaxed mode for those of us with arthritis issues. Please make this a series. Thanks again for this game and God Bless.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Gem of a TM game Plenty to do in this great game. Collect, build and upgrade as normal but lots more in terms of resourse management. When and what to order and often takes redoing the level - which I love. Some levels are easy so it doesnt get monotonous with just enough challange. The find the owl on each level is just hard enough and fun. Thankfully thats all you have to find as each level gives you enough to do. The are work is great too as its easy on the eyes, it almost has an older feel but it isnt. Workers wait around a second or two which is useful when chopping trees and collecting gold or ore. This game ticks my Royal Envoy box nicely. OInly gripe is on some levels the red arrows and dialogue box gets in the way when you need the amounts of resourses needed to build, leaving you having to guess.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome I loved the train stop game but I love that this has country music in the background and I love the challenge. I figured it out pretty well. I have gone back and done some levels to try to get the 3 stars. It is just a great game. Keep em comin.
