I got this game in one a bundle somewhere and I do own games like Cities Skylines, Cities XL and older versions of Sim City, so to be honest I did not think much of this game. I launched the game just to try it so I could put it in my 'hidden' list. Before I knew it, I was 2 hours into the game.

You won't hear me say this game is better than the games I just mentioned. Tycoon City: New York, is a pretty basic city builder but there are a few things I found interesting. For instance, you are able to add certain items in front of building like; flowers, benches, banners and satellites. Also, you do not own every building in New York but you are able to buy them of your opponents.

The game was released in 2006, so the graphics obviously aged and there are some problems with the textures in this Steam version. Naturally, the game only takes place in New York, so it helps if you like the city's buildings.

Tycoon City: New York, is not the greatest city builder ever but it's still fun to play, if you don't mind the graphics and simplicity. You should, however, not get this game at the regular price.

This game was a dissapointment, it was fun but when your city gets too big it gets crashy; so I deleted it. It is worth about $3.00
