Summary: While the concept is intriguing of doing a different time period, the game mechanics and play of this version of Build-a-lot was much weaker than others. I would recommend the purchaser stick with Build-a-Lot 2 and 3 for better quality and more longevity in their game play.
Summary: Nothing beats the old school "Build A Lot", The game plays perfectly on my windows 7 or Vista. The downloadable version is flawless and the fact that if your computer crashes AMAZON STILL keeps your game on file. (any of your DL games are kept) The music is good and each level is progressively harder, you can even go back and redo each level to better your score.
Summary: I'm of the generation of the original Sim City. Transport Tycoon was one of my favorites, as is the RollerCoaster Tycoon 1&2 (3 got waaayyy to involved for my liking.) I like simple sim/strategy. I don't need to know where my "sims" work or what they had for breakfast. I prefer running their infrastructure. Or building an amusement park. I had downloaded Cities in Motion, but it wasn't what I wanted. Too involved, too many variables.
