One of the best games I've ever played. If you can find a copy buy it. You will lose hours of your life playing this game. No longer sold on the steam store, maybe someday it will be back.

A fantastic city-building resource management game that is no longer sold on Steam due to Ubisoft's inability to give a damn. Buy it if you can!
