SummaryBeautiful graphics and probably the best music in a game.
The GoodFirst of all the Music in this game is first rate! I just loved to sit back and listen to the soundtrack (i often let it run while I read or did something else) There is a prebuild screensaver in the game. When you leave the game inactive too long it switches over to a beach setting showing the tide lapping over the sand. With great sound. Perfect for a nice relaxing nap.
Now as for the game itself there were great sound effects mixed with eye-poping graphics. Gameplay is ok, and it had moderate replayability.
The Bad....Well as much as I loved the music and graphics the game could get boring. Much like Sim City you just get to a point where there was nothing left to do, well at least nothing fun.
Often times I got tired of the griping about how the colonists wanted this or that. No mater how much I gave them it never seemed enough. Plus getting the goods they wanted often seemed like a Herculean task. After a while the game just wasn't fun anymore. So mainly I got my pleasure from the music.
