Summary: I prefer the strategy-builder games like SimCity and Civilisation, and so I get a lot of fun from this version. You basically get to be God (in fact the mayor) and you start building your ideal community. Naturally it takes a bit of skill to find a viable combination of key elements (e.g.
Summary: Its a great game but when running on a macbook pro, the scenery sometimes appears white, I am currently in the middle of trying to get the patch to work using their support website but up to now after loading the patch the game fails to run.
