I haven't been able to find any reviews of the official online and PC version of the game. Have there been any?

Here's a quick review: The online version is the same game. The deck shuffle is automatic and fast online but the feel of components and friendly gaming faces is missing. The online version does not have the full scope of the expansions yet. Ticket to Ride: Nordic Countries, The Mystery Train Expansion, The 1912 Expansion, The Asia Expansion, The Marklin Game, and Alvin & Dexter are all missing from the online version.

There is one great advantage to the online version; you can get geekgold for winning if you play it through the Boardgamegeek Misc. online game tab.

I have noticed one issue with the online and downloaded versions. When playing tunnel routes on the Swiss map, you can't select the number of regular cars and locomotives you play. It's either all regular cars (and locomotives if you don't have enough regular cars) or all locomotives. There have been times that I want to save a regular car or two of that color and fill the rest of the route with a few locomotives but have been unable to.

There are 4 different AI personalities for the downloaded version. I can't remember how many different versions of AI bots there are for the online version. You can play against up to 4 computer opponents.
