This game could be great fun, but there are an awful lot of problems. This game is incredibly glitchy, a lot of the objects ingame are invisible or blacked out. The people in the cutscenes are invisible also, you can hear them talking, but there isn't anyone there. Feel like I've wasted the little bit of money I spent on it because I can't fully enjoy the game.

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.
