OXM UK: "The paper-thin strategy, piss-weak story, and miserable appearance are compounded by an insulting lack of polish. After an hour's play, the audio regularly starts skipping, and menus mysteriously deselect themselves. Night maps are far too dark, and high buildings block your view. Simple problems haven't been fixed, suggesting real issues with QA.
It's a shock that this game was made by the creators of the far superior Tropico series. The inclusion of an 'it's-a me, Mario!' joke is just the killing blow." 4/10
