2.0 out of 5 stars Good Idea...but,, January 25, 2002
This review is from: Cultures - PC (Video Game)
The developers of this game had a good idea. It combines a lot of the features of civilization and the sims. The games has the basic build your civilization from the ground up and control every aspect of the characters life from birth to marriage to housing.
Where it falters is the speed of the game. It takes forever to complete any task. The features list 200 hours of gameplay and they mean it takes 200 hours to complete one mission. There are large periods of time when you just sit and wait to complete something so you can move on to the next task.
To do something you would think is simple, make bread, requires you to build a farm, train a farmer, build a mill, train the farmer to become a miller, build a well, build a bakery and then train the miller to become a bakery. To do this, it will probably take around 45 minutes with the player having a lot of free time to think about playing another game.
If you have a lot of patience and don't mind extremely slow play, this is a good game. However, with the multitude of choices in games today, this will not be tops on my list.
