I've spend many, many hours playing this game. If you love business, you'll love playing capitalism 2. So many different aspects of the business world is included in the game, just playing around with shares was fun.
This is a great business simulation type game. Its interesting in that you can start out getting ports to offer raw goods and then eventually expand to make your own raw materials to send to factories to sell to stores. Research and development will increase the tech of your products to sell for higher prices and better competition.
Not a complete waste of time, but clunky GUI mechanics and really weak graphics. It takes forever to make progress, and the interface is unimaginative and quickly bores. The technology trees are rudimentary and inflexible. Too bad, it's a concept that really could take off if handled with a little more imagination. When I upgraded my PC I didn't bother to redownload.
