This is a great city sim for anyone who is looking for more than just building houses and roads. With this game you get to build an empire, trade with other players and third parties, and if you so choose, go to war with them. When I got Uplay to work on my windows 8.1 I found out that this game can have a lot of replay ability to it. There are many great aspects of the game that I enjoyed.
Quests from third parties- these mainly give credits and licenses (which you need for development and purchasing items)
Trading routes- have your own great trading empire. Transport items and goods from one Island to another without monitoring it.
Civilization levels- each faction (The Eden Initiative, Global Trust, and Techs) has 4 levels each with their own needs.
Laboratories and Academies- allows you to build modulates that you can use on your Islands to speed up production, or dig deeper for more resources. The Academy allows you to research helpful items that can be loaded onto your Arc. You can build anything from a massive eco booster to a hydro-electric power plant.
When you set up your very own missions there are endless varieties to the settings to allow endless amounts of fun, and if you like a particular seed, then keep it to use again!
There wasn't really too much that I did not like about the game. The interface is great no real hick-ups, except when you set the level of goods you want to keep in storage, when you are in the strategic view and setting up trade routes. Other than that I really like the game, also the music is not that bad with the ambient sounds. I really hope you review the tips and fixes to Uplay to give this game a chance. If Uplay is the issue then please let them know so they can fix it. Do not base a review from another source not working (like Steam, Uplay, or Origin). Thank you for taking your time to read my review. Hope this helps in your decision to buy this great city sim, before they go extinct.
