I forgot just how much fun Tycoon City: New York was to play. Think of Monopoly meets Sim City, it is sort of like that. I've owned this game for several years on the PC, but recently added it to my steam library, so I played it again for a while and found it very easy to get back into the groove of the game. The game is pretty simple, build up New York City, one area at a time, while competing with several other NPC Tycoons who are doing the very same. You can buy out businesses, upgrade existing ones and more. This game was a lot of fun years ago, and while graphically speaking it is a little out of date, and the camera controls can be a little funky at times, it is still fun to play.

The game was made in 2006 so its expected to have a bit of trouble running, no it will never be fixed by the developers, but of course by removing a few files you can fix most, if not all of the major problems with running the game. Of course the graphics are also sub-par but in 2006 these graphics were the bomb tbh.
Besides that gameplay wise the game is quite fun, you run New York thats about the gist of it, theres a variety of buildings and building styles for each district not everything looks exactly the same, tbh I don't even think I got through every building the game has so that says something. You also get a bit of customization with the exterior of buildings, but this has a bit of a bug because some buildings will not let you place items in the right place or let you place items at all.

Overall, the game has problems but when you fix them the game is enjoyable just like any other city builder out there.

I like the game, the ideea but it has many bugs and glitches (no ideea how to write this word)

No recommandation for now until they fix some of the bugs that add up and latter in the game it becomes unplayable

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.
