I purchased this after reading the reviews on here and have not been dissapointed, it is very addictive. I did wonder if it would be a bit 'young' for me but have found the fact you can choose different levels such as easy, medium or hard to be a huge help and I opted for Medium and still ended up struggling from time to time! Each level gets just that bit harder with citizens demands, costs etc evolving. I enjoy non violent platform games and this is definetly worth getting.
I was all ready to be disapionted by this game, but after playing it for what i thought was about an hour, realised that it was more like four. The game somehow drags you in, the graphics are good and the game play is easy to pick up. the only down side i felt about the game was that the story mode only has one story line to it when i thought there could have been other opions, posssibly other cultures, which would have increased the game life. However i like this game alot.
When i bought this game i was on the look out for a black and white 2 city building/maintaining game and came across this game. Being so cheap i decided to give it a go and it really did crush my expectations.
I wouldn't compare this to black and white 2, as it can get more complex than anticipated when discovering islands, colonising, maintaining and expanding on several islands at once. Put like that it sounds like a chore but i've never built a city and felt more satisfied! This game is addictive and relaxing as you place buildings, join them up with roads all with the wii remote making it so easy and theres no rush unless your village is on fire or your city has the plague!
The graphics are perfect for the type of game, they are good to look at but they're not going to take your breath away. The music for me is soo important for a game to have an impact and the music is perfect too! I've played for hours and i havn't even tried the combat side of it because it's so relaxing to build a city from scratch. All i can say is, when age of mythology first came out i was absorbed in the building side of it, it was real escapism and this game does exactly the same!
i didnt know what to expect when i payed for this, maybe like others on here expected it to be childish , but this game shocked me , after playing it for a while you start to get addicted to leveling up your towns and population , the military side to it is the only thing that stoped me giving it 5/5 , it is very basic and lacks what other sim / stratergy games have. but still the overall game makes up for it and definitely a bargin at 10pounds
This game is quite brilliant. I didn't know what to expect from it, except that it would be very basic, almost childish Real-Time Strategy Gaming. But it is not! It's very entertaining, and currently even my favourite Wii game.
I haven't tried the co-op yet, though, but I'm looking forward to it!
