    Build…but only where it will let you. Defend…against an enemy you can't attack. And Expand…because your absolutely idiotic villagers will bitch and moan for hours if you don't.

    Fraught with AI horrors and intrusively complicated sets of criteria required to keep your city from falling victim to its own social woes, the game experience reveals that it has no concept of entertainment, nor any idea how to promote fun and a sense of accomplishment.
