Top Customer Reviews
There are 5 main facets of the game.
1) Farming - to create the raw material inputs that you need to manufacture finished products
2) Manufacturing - building factories which take raw material inputs to create finished products for consumers
3) Retailing - there are a variety of retail outlets that you can build, which are the main sources of income for your business. Only certain buildings can sell certain products
4) Competition - You must stay on top of your competition by monitoring how their products relate to yours in terms of price, quality, supply, and market share
5) Innovation - Do not neglect your R&D. Long term investments in innovation will give your products an edge over competitors.
There are also several industries that you can play including pharmaceuticals (my favorite), apparel, electronics, automotives, computing devices, food & beverages, toys, tobacco products, furniture, and cosmetics (another favorite).
Overall, this game is quite complex. It took me about a half a dozen plays to learn all the game's nuances, and another half a dozen plays to figure out how to run a successful multibillion dollar business. But once you get the hang of it, this game is addicting. I wish they would come out with Capitalism 3, or something close to this game.
For a really fun business oriented game, I'd suggest Railroad Tycoon 3, or 2. I think the game's a decade old by now and I still get a kick out of it every time I play.
I don't typically expect tutorials to be overly challenging - it's more just getting you comfortable for the gameplay. I was only successful at one of them, and kept playing the others over and over again thinking I must have been missing something about the gameplay. The AI opponent is very powerful, and will build huge conglomerates and dominate markets in almost no time, when your stores take a year or two even to start making profits. By the time you can get products to market, the AI will already have better branding and quality, decreasing your ability to penetrate the market. But if you spend the money early on to advertise and research, you'll go bankrupt before you can reap the rewards, especially in some of the tutorials where you are not allowed to take out a loan or issue stock. Some of the tutorials also span as much as 30 years, so they're a pretty big investment of time and energy. I found that frustrating for learning purposes, as it takes a long time to learn from any gameplay mistakes you may make early on.
The AI opponent also has access to game features which you do not in the earlier tutorials. For example, in early tutorials I saw that the AI opponent was building R&D centers, while I could not do so - they aren't introduced until tutorial 7. So yes, it's an interesting idea, and I'd really like to make it work, but I can't. I still have a feeling like maybe I'm missing out on something, but whatever. I don't have the time or inclination to spend on getting this to work. At least it was cheap.
