Probably my most pointless review ever!
This will be my shortest review ever (amazingly), I thought this game would be a watered down version of full price PC games such as Railroad Tycoon etc. To an extent it was, and much as I did love this genre of game, what semi put me off was the music, The soundtrack to this as to that was what I call 'old wild western music' (there is probably a proper name for the genre), but tunes such as 'O Susannah' and 'she'll be coming round the mountain', are tunes that for me give me the 'goose shivers' every time I hear them, there is no rhyme nor reason for this but there are a few that do and this style of music is one of them. The upshot of this then is that I couldn't play the game because of the music.
I know what people are thinking (if people are actually reading this review), why don't I turn the sound down, off, yes I could have done, but for me the music is part of the game and if I can't get 'on' as it were with the music, then no matter how good the game is, I don't play. With the music all being olde western I really couldn't get on with it, and even if I had turned the sound down I would have still 'known'.
From what I did play, the game started of with the basics of connecting towns and growing in stature to meet the criteria, other than that there is not really a lot more I can say as I didn't play for much longer.
The point of the review, none probably, just thought I would share my musings of the soundtrack of the game, sorry
For me personally I wouldn't recommend the game but that is purely based on the soundtrack.
Ok it was not short, but just a rant, sorry.
