I don't agree with the descriptions of the other players.
This game is a fun to play for several hours.
You watch your city as it is growing with buildings from yourself and other tycoons.
It's made up with an living atmosphere, i haven't looked where the citizens go or where the cabs travel,
for me this things doesn't matter. Maybe in the later game.
One of the players mentioned "grey-block-buildings", guy turn off your ingame filter and they appear normal.
Till now I couldn't find any bugs, the game is starting without any problem. Graphical issues may happen because of your graphics card driver (like the sprites of some plants)
The money ingame always goes up, so your main goal is to increase it as fast as possible.
The "chances" are also nice goals to aim for, but often you don't know which buildings you have to set.
This game is more for kids, i think, because theres no way to loose money, you can't make mistakes.
