Unfortunately, the game's grip on economic simulation feels relatively loose and a little too randomized. I don't get a sense of shoppers flowing from one direction to the other, and therefore I can't attempt to divert foot traffic to where I want it to go.
The economics of the game simply feel shoddy. The AI is frustrating. The bleak emptiness of your mall initially and the fact that the best way to build a satisfying mall is by taking out loans seems a little funny.
