Let me start by saying this is a very fun and addicting game. However the amount of game breaking bugs I faced where unacceptable. I was truly hoping for a patch for this game after so long, however there was none.
The 2 Big bugs I faced where that after a certain size any attempt to load a game will not work. meaning that most levels have to be done in one sitting. The 2nd bug was that even just playing if my island got to a certain size it would begin to freeze up and no longer load pages for things such as building or edicts.
Without those 2 game breaking bugs I would easily give this game a 10. But sadly I cannot due to these 2 game breaking bugs.
This is a great game, but it requires a long learning curve. Much like most of the simulation games, you have to mine for minerals, grow food . . . keep the people happy! :-) If you have the time, then this is a good game.
