Summary

One of the best games Sid ever made!

The Good

Sid has a way to make a game so addictive that time itself seems to be travel at warp speed. Civ & Railroad Tycoon are two such games. What can I say.... The music is great, the graphics are great (for its time), totaly addictive, totaly replayable, easy to learn, fun to play.

This is probably the greatest example of how bring a good game together. Everything flows so smoothly in this game. You dont feel as if a part of the game got more or less attention, you dont feel that a critical or even important part of the game was left out. The music complemented the gameplay, and the game was easy and fun to play. But most of all it is replayable. I know people who are still playing this game 11 years after its release!

The Bad

Time has begun to take its toll on the graphics. But only just.

The Bottom Line

One of the most addictive fun games ever made!
