If you can think back to the summer of 2018 then you may well remember a small mine cart roller coasting title rolled up onto Xbox One. That game was Mining Rail; a game that went very much under the radar in and amongst the other huge titles that released around it. But no matter whether you played the original game or not matters little, as today we see the sequel rock up and Mining Rail 2 on Xbox One comes with a whole load of new content.
Available to purchase and download this very minute is Mining Rail 2 on Xbox One. Priced up at £11.74, if you’re in the market for some roller coasting action and can’t afford the huge ticket prices being asked of your local theme park, then this may well be your best – and only – option.
But what is Mining Rail 2? Well, it’s a roller coaster game – just one set in an old mine – and it’ll be left to you to hop into the nearest mine cart and travel at speed along the dirtiest, dustiest, railway track.
Getting to the end of the track in the shortest amount of time possible is the name of the game and only by shifting the weight of the cart pilot, utilising every ounce of your skills as you navigate through various corners at speed, will you find success. Anyone who played the original game from last year will know the drill and this sequel should play out along very similar terms, just now there are more worlds to enjoy, extra features to take in and an even greater skill set required.
Mining Rail 2 on Xbox One promises to take you over and under no less than 110 fixed tracks, 11 worlds, and 5 levels, asking you to complete 1815 different tasks – and yep, it is that precise. With a world generator then also hammering home an endless number of random tracks, and the chance to take in a variety of environments like the Northern Forest, the Stone Valley, the Fire Island and more, you can be sure you’ll be in for an up-and-down test throughout. There is even a Ghost Mine available for the most hardened of roller coaster enthusiasts. You’ll need to get your wits about you in order to enter that one though.
