While this is a time old classic and a great game to play, a warning to all future owners.
This game is no longer supporter as the company that made it no longer exists. Also it doesn't support modern GFX cards higher than the 4×xx series. I had to dig out an old computer just to replay this classic after I purchased it recently.
So if you really want to sink your teeth into this great little gem of a tycoon / civ type game then check your system specs before purchase.
