Another boardgame brought to Live Arcade, this one is based around forging railroads across the United States. Like Carcassonne, it’s a speedy play, can be learned in fifteen minutes, and hides more depth than it immediately lets on.One of the smartest board ports yet, with a cracking interface to go with it.
While EA are busy making sports games like Fight Night, NBA Street Homecourt, FIFA and NBA Live among the best looking titles ever crafted by the hands of man, Tiger missed the makeover bus.

Miss it, and we’re likely doomed to another long season on the Tour before we get back here again...
Tiger Woods returns for another year of hitting the greens, this time with Kinect support. Is this year's installment good enough to wear the jacket, or has the lustre faded on the series?
The best Tiger yet will tempt you--again and again--to keep reaching for your wallet. You may just comply...
