BROKEN as can be! Does not install properly, requiring you to find and install a specific version of DirectX and PhysX, must be run as administrator (also during install), must change GFX card config to abnormal settings (which will break other games if not changed back first), must run at low-quality audio on your soundcard, cannot use anything above 16-bit 44.1kHz (CD-Quality), which is shamefully poor with today's common 24-bit or at least 16-bit 192kHz, and i've literally never seen a game that can't downsample- it requires you to nerf and reconfigure your whole system just to run it. Then, once you've done ALL THAT, you will STILL find that it crashes to desktop constantly. In-game features such as auto-scheduling product deliveries are broken (they ONLY work if ALL the goods are available at the very moment of the order, at ONE location, AND can fit on ONE truck... which will never happen.)
To top it all off, their support seems to think all these problem are 'okay' and 'normal' for games 'these days'. They're deluded and insane.
This could have been a nice game, but the incredibly poor compatability with standard computers, lack of configureability, ineffective patches, haphazard coding, poor performance, and dismissive support attitude are all enough to make this a truly awful, painful experience that is more frustrating than it's worth for a medeocre and seemingly unfinished game with few original elements to a genre with only a half dozen entries! Really, they couldn't do ANYTHING new? The strange lack of development in many areas (such as the fact the only source of power in this world is, apparently, solar?) and clunky interface (you can't 'back out' of some 'draw' menus and must switch menus to get back to normal click-to-interact modes) just... ugh.

Consider this game a painful basket of lessons being learned by an indie developer. Hopefully they can add some real content, fix the interface, and for the love of GOD get it working within some modicum of basic computer gaming standards... then, maybe they'd have a good little game. But as it stands?
2.5 out of 10. Go play Capitalism 2 instead.

Also, just a note. It has crashed to desktop 19 times in the 90 minutes i've been 'playing' it. Oh, but I can run Minecraft for 8 hours without one crash?
They just didn't even try to make this thing stable.



IF you really need help or are unlucky enough to have bought it, and are one of the people (see: most) who can't even get it to run, please feel free to send me a message on Steam and i'll try to walk you through all the many steps to make your computer compatible. But.. it's not really worth it, and you have to undo it to get most /other/ games to work.

I absolutely love games this like even when most do not. Sadly, this is one of the worst simulation games I have played espeically for the price. The game is clunky and hard to build. Selling items isn't automatic and just becomes annoying after awhile. I tried the campain which was lacking any substance and didn't give me the desire to contiue to play. Simply put, I'm horrified that I spent money on this game and beg steam to give a refund.

I bought this game very early on and have been patiently waiting for the developers to patch it up to an enjoyable level ever since. And all of this time, I've been nothing but supportive and hopeful, waiting for this to occur. But now, I've finally thrown in the towel and decided it's time to call this donkey for what it is.

All you really have to do is go to the forums and you'll quickly see other peoples' reasons for dissatisfaction with this game. But speaking for myself, the worst aspect of the game is that has an economic model that creates orders/demand for you to start a business, then dries up those orders to ZERO unless you open other businesses (with different products) to develop the surrounding towns to create more demand for your original product. Sound ridiculous? It is. For example, you go from building a successful egg producing business to suddenly, zero demand (due to no one in the world eating eggs anymore because their town is too small, apparently). It takes all of the positive, enjoyable parts of the game, wads it up, lights it on fire, and throws it out the window. Have you ever heard of a business game "on rails"?

I don't know if I've ever even written a negative review on Steam. But, my level of frustration and disappointment in this game has led me for this to be my first. Is this the worst game ever made? No, but it completely misses the mark of creating an enjoyable progression of building your business to be what you want it to be (which to me, is the point of game like this, Railroad Tycoon, etc...). This game is SUCH a missed opportunity and the developers seem to be oblivious and completely disengaged. Not a good way to run your uh... business. So, save yourself the frustration and do not buy this game.
