Could be great but gets boring,
This review is from: Tycoon City: New York (PC CD) (Video Game)
This is a great build-up sim game, with the possibility to upgrade your buildings and explore the various districts of New York (not all of them, by the way) while building a limited amount of different looking buildings according to district.
The idea is so great, it could be expanded to other cities in the world, but upgrading residential buldings and stores with the same flowers and signs all over town gets kind of boring. Also, more type of buildings would be nicer.
I find it difficult to believe that ALL New York stores have exactly the same flowers in front! I think the software developers could have made a bit more of an effort on that one, considering it would have made a heck of a difference on gameplay. After all, build up games rely on variety to keep the fun going!
So: great fun for the first hour or two, then turns boring.
