Capitalism 2 is a management sim to crown all others. If you enjoy complicated and brain teasing puzzles trying to work out supply and demand or the complexities of stock market trading, this is for you.
Capitalism 2 will ease you in with some well designed tutorials to make you feel a little at home but, in all honesty, you'll probably have the game paused for the majority of the time just to study the many different menus and screens.
These menus cover everything. For instance, it's not just a matter of selling a product that you've lovingly crafted in your down town factory. You must choose a strategy like brand labelling and then advertise using the 3 media types modelled in the game.
Multiple cities and opponents can be customised as well as multiplayer options, all with a miriad of sub options to suit most tastes in difficulty.
So, if you're a budding Branson and fancy a REAL challenge, Capitalism 2 is for you but a word of warning: NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED!!
