Summary

A really good city building sim

The Good

The first few scenarios that also serve as tutorials really do a good job of sucking you into the game. You kind of want to build more and more stuff so that you will be able to see what comes next. There are also nice comments from the towns-people that tell you whether they are happy with you or not. The buildings look good and so do the people as they walk around.

The Bad

After some time, the scenarios become a case of doing the same thing, building the city and trying to meet certain goals which get harder and harder as time goes by. Then the military factor is there, its just a case of having more trained men than the enemy, and you have almost no control over them.

The Bottom Line

It is actually a very entertaining city building game, which is let down by an inferior military model. Play it to discover what a city building game should be like
