OK so I literally judged a game by its cover and bought Light Rail because of its cool Futurism cover. It arrived this morning in pristine condition and I ordered it with the plastic box to keep it that way. On opening the box I was impressed with the quality of the graphic design and the clarity of the rules lay out. I’ve now played it (admittedly only 2 player) 7 times and I have enjoyed it every time. It can be difficult to get to grips with the city layout rules at first but it all adds to the fun. The actual game play can be as complex or simple as your own tactics. You can agonise over every card lay, because there are always choices, or you can fire them out fast and fun. Overall I’d say this was a top notch title. It’s enjoyable, easy-ish to learn and the artwork is gorgeous. My only criticism would be that the card art doesn’t quite live up to the standard of the cover art. That being said it is still perfectly good and functional so does not detract from the game in anyway. If I could I’d give 4.5 stars but seeing as half stars aren’t an option I’m giving it the benefit of the doubt wit 5 STARS.
[5 of 5 Stars!]
