If you are looking for a challenge and don't mind a steep learning curve then SimIsle is the game for you. It's bound to give the patient gamer weeks, maybe even months, of game play. Unfortunately, the unnecessary hardware demands are another draw back of this game. I recommend that you have at least a fast PowerPC Mac if you are considering this game.

This game is extremely confusing, even if you read the manual. It is also uneven and doesn't feel very much like a Maxis Sim game. If you have a choice, go for one of the other sims by Maxis, and give this one a miss.
