The base game does, I agree. I just bought the Modern Times DLC to hopefully make it more interesting.

This game seems to have a lot to offer, but really none of the advanced mechanics are even needed to complete everything.

Custom content from users is really what makes this game shine... That is if you are willing to sift thru the crap.

I would get the game if its on sale.. its not a bad game.. its just not a great game either.

A lot of the replayability comes from roleplaying and setting your own goals. If that doesn't interest you then it might not be fun for as long.

Interesting opinions. I think the game is incredibly fun.

But it is definitely easy, with the exception of a few missions, which a tough-ish, but not brutal.

creating a stable economy is pretty easy, and that usually will get you through any mission, for the most part.

But that isn't where the fun lies for me. Sure, I can plop down a few houses, build a few farms, and wait for the end, but where's the fun in that? Creating a smooth, diverse economy is where the fun is for me.

As Łųćįąñ said, role playing is a part of it. Do you want to be a brutal dictator that squeezes every bit of productivity out of your enslaved population? Or do you want to create a Caribbean utopia of happy, healthy, wealthy people?

I have a few hundred hours in this game and still love every minute, especially SANDBOX games.

So I respectfully disagree with some of people's opinions here.

AS for ntall1's suggestion of custom content, I've never tried any, the few times I looked into it, getting custom content to work seemed like a brutal process, and this is coming from a guy who loves modding. Maybe I'm wrong on that though.
