Brilliant game, economics just got fun. Some people will hate this game and hate on it for being so simple. but this game is acctually genius i love it and its very well developed for a city building sim. you basically are in new york with around 20 other AI business people the idea is to make the best business. then the best chain of stores with a massive depot office one you have developed enough sucsessful businesses of the same type.
each sim can be stopped in the street and they have a large pool of information concernuing where the like things etc etc, its acctually all the right information depending on the type of personality the sim has, they also work or attend education. you dont have to just build shops and resturants, you can build accomidation, entertainment venues, hotels, luxury locations for the rich and famous providing they have a suitable enviroment, education building and some council buildings, depending on you invividual busnesses succsess you will watch you quirqy empire rise to the top from being the only deli in the over developed office section, or your art shop in the middle of knowhere that you built by accident suddenly hit city record sales from the rich and famous attending the new entertainment venues nearby.
its just so much fun to watch and plan.
HOWEVER, this is the very bad current steam version on the game and a few in game items will not work and just appear as blank texture boxes in grey. Unless you are a die hard fan i would stay away until the textures are fixed or some nice person makes a workaround for the steam version (i hope they do) i love this game. Currently the bugs are not isolated to individuals but all people who have played the steam version of this game and have found many none working items in the form of big grey boxes.
