Fun, but annoying.
8 December 2005 | by The_Light_TritonSee all my reviews

This game is very fun, sure to provide you with entertainment for hours. but wait for a while. you'll be making your city a living paradise, and everyone will still complain.

This game is also a good learning tool. just like the Readme says, "We've always said we can do better than our leaders, and here's your chance to prove it." you'll have to raise taxes. you'll have to cut jobs. you'll have to do things that people will hate you for. but then again, you'll understand why the government raises taxes and cuts jobs.

the annoying part is the pop-up paper. you'll understand what i mean in the future, if you get this game.

This game is probably the best in the series. i'll give it 8/10.
