SummaryFun, but nearly impossible!
The GoodThis game is rich in environment. The music is sublime and sets the mood. The graphics are a treat to watch, and match form and function. There is a tremendous amount of personality and charm imbued in gameplay.
The challenges of laying out a city will draw you in and force you to really think about how to accomplish what you need to do. The game is engineered to make you observe and think about how to lay things out.
The BadIts fairly easy in the beginning, but it starts to get really difficult as you approach the the 30 year mark. You can only stay in power as long as you are elected or maintain a force to stave off an attack. Even if you're doing a great job, the people will start looking at the things you may have failed and still vote you out of office.
There are a handful of missions, but hardly more than the ones that came as the demo.
