I've been a trainz user for years, there is simply nothing else like it, especially on the mac platform. Although it's "version 1" for the mac, don't let that stop you, it's actually based off the same code the PC version is, which has had about 10 years of updates. Speaking of Updates, If you take the extra step of setting up a profile on the vendor's site (there's a button to help you do this when you run the game) the game will give you to pull content updates. Trainz has always been a community game - meaning that thousands of enthusiasts from around the world have made things like buildings, trees, trains etc. Much of this content is included in the game, and even more is available online on the "download station". So again, although it's a "Version 1" product, there are in fact updates to the content and this is a mature and stable platform. Easily worth the money for something so unique. That said, Trainz can be easy or hard - it depends on how much you want to get into it. Do you want to control a train on a few different layouts? that's easy. Do you want to create a layout, that'll take some effort, and some understanding of a few things. it's not impossible, but you will have to think and use your head. Do you want to download new layouts, cars and buildings from the internet - that's easy, but not well documented at this point. So my review reflects that in its ease of use score...

I am downloading the torrent version as I write this. So why score it 5 star if I haven't got it? Well I owned Trainz on the PC from it's earliest inception and stuck with it as it grew and would encourage all children aged toddler to 112, or whatever the oldest living human is to try it. It filled the gap of missing train set for me for many years. I still have the Trainz discs even though I don't have a PC anymore. The scores I give are for what I know of the product previously and as I have used the iPad version and love it on there I feel confident we are in for a cracker of a game. The Stability of this version I cannot tell at this point of course, but judging by the recent iPad release it will be fine. If it has early issues I encourage you to stick with it. Should this be buggy, I know from experience that those bugs will begin to be removed very quickly. I will say that the major prob when it first arrived was that PC's were generally still too slow to really run it gloriously, but as newer hardware became cheaper users became happier and the updates went a long way toward making them happy too. When I originally had it on PC, the company was called Auran, I am suspecting the new name is a new owner after all these years. I always found Auran great to talk too if you needed guidance. As for the game itself, the playing of it was a lot of fun. The editor was breathtaking. Many buying this for the first time will probably say "Oh yeah same old, same old" but when Auran developed this editor there was nothing to match it. Landscaping was a doddle (great word, sadly underused). There was a huge range of models to add to the landscape back then as well. Those models went on to be user created in a vast library that I am hoping will be available to Mac users. I have been hoping for this moment for a good many years. The question "Will there be a Mac version?" was always never a point blank no, just never seemed to arrive, just like many real trains I have waited for :o) So I hope for great things with Trainz v1.0 and that it grows beyond v1.0 very soon. Incidentally, it makes a change to have a feel good offering from MacUpdate of a weekend, rather than a never-ending pot of graphic filters and the like. Not that I have an issue with them, except when they are offered at weekends when some of us want shiny, whizzy things ;o) Happy Trainzing!
