This is basically an empire building sim, but a decent one.
Don't expect too much from this and you should be rewarded with a few nice suprises.
The tutorial is straight forward, to let you get into the action quickly, but there is still plenty to pick up as you go along so it stays interesting.
You can play in either Sandbox or Campaign mode, but once you have completed objectives of campaign it lets you keep playing and you can progress to the next scenario when you want.
There is a wide range of attractions you can put on your plot of land, from the obvious hotels and casinos (you get to design the layout of the casino) to the more spectacular movie theatres, rollercoasters and waterparks.
Ideal for attracting the family and O.A.P. demographic, or you could just say stuff that and fill it up with topless bars and showgirl reviews.
