I highly recommend this game - kinda has a simcity/Pharoah feel to it. Ive been playing the demo for a while and its awesome, also just downloaded the gangsters2 demo but havent had time to play it yet.
Any other games out a the moment worth looking at.
Haven't got time to play new games, I'm still working through Tomb Raider II, with TRIII still boxed on the shelf waiting to be played. Probably the newest game I have is Earth 2150 (my 11yr old son's actually) which is a real time strategy with excellent graphics. The kids like Populous:the Beginning, mainly for the fun-style of the presentation, but the game play is good also.
