Great game, just don't get it on Steam. I remember enjoying playing this a few years ago when I bought it in store when it first came out. Since then I've lost the CD and randomly thought to buy it again. I downloaded it from Steam and immediately noticed that the file was corrupted. The skins for many objects are missing and the game crashes nonstop. After a week of owning it now it crashes back the desktop as soon as the game loads. First I thought it had just installed bad so I reinstalled it but had the same problem. I quick google search of my problem revealed that I'm not the only one who is having issues with Steam's version of this game. It's a shame they have a no refund policy. As advice to anyone thinking of buying this; go for it! It's so fun for tycoon lovers. Just don't get it from Steam.

Sure the game is fun at first, but as you get farther into the game you start to notice its missing some things. 2 theater textures are not present (A mission involves one of those building making it impossible to coplete that mission). The bridges are poorly developed, The entrance to the bridges completly go over other roads and they don't even connect to the other side they simply end in water. And some ground textures are not present and lots of errors in Central Park. I give this game a 2/5

The action in the game is great. But it just feels the game is not finished.
Lots of textures flicker. Lots of glitches. And not to mention the fact that it randomly crashes. If you don't save frequently you'll have a bad surprise.
But on the other hand the game itself has something that newer games tend to lose over the years and versions.
If it wasn't for all the glitches in the game it would keep up with modern games very well.
If it was cheaper I would recommend it. But at 10 EUR is way to pricey. There are recent releases that are cheaper than this that came out in 2006.
IMO this game would be worth it at 2-3 EUR.
