I would like it....if it were easy to use or worked well

Summary: I recently received this game as a present and was eager to get into it. After (pretty boring, as game tutorials go) tutorials, I was ready to play, but the interface with the game is very hard to get accustomed to.

Once you have set up a couple of trade routes to bring in a steady cashflow (which is totally out of proportion to the expenditures in the game - you can quickly run up more money...
Summary: Von der Spielgestaltung bin ich zwar sehr angetan, was mich stört (da ich nun einmal ein "Endlos"-Spieler bin), ist die Tatsache, dass schon gespeicherte Spielstände nicht mehr ladbar sind, ohne dass das Programm gleich abstürzt.
