  1. Fun city builder.
    by Gelms, Australia - Dec 19th 2018

    Fun game. Does not take itself too seriously. Only complaint is too much DLC.

  2. Fun game, for a while.
    by Alexander Potapov, USA - Feb 23rd 2018

    The game falls off after a few rounds, as you end up doing more or less the same thing over and over to beat the scenarios, deviating slightly to fulfill the fairly simple mission criteria.
