Overall Rating: 3.5-stars/5-stars
When it comes to popular city simulators, some of the best ones that come to mind are Caesar III, SimCity, and Zeus & Poseidon. The earliest game came out in 1999. They've been setting the standard for 15 years now, and they're just as popular today.
So when a new game comes along, it faces quite a challenge from its predecessors. Enter "1849," from SomaSim. The game takes place in the state of California during the gold rush era. It starts out like any other city builder and has many similar mechanics. So, the questions that remain are: what does this game do to set it apart from other games like it? Does it stand up to the games from the past?
SomaSim was nice enough to send us a copy for review. So, scroll down to check out what Boston Games Examiner thought of "1849" and all it has to offer. As always, don't forget to hit the like button is you thought this review was helpful. Don't forget to follow me on Twitter and Facebook as well.
