Last Word: We love Kosmos games and we love city games and we love cooperative games so this was a no-brainer for us, right? Well, it fell pretty flat. Its another cooperative game that is more suited to solo play than group play. There just isn’t enough interesting choices to make it worth the time it takes to slog through it. Even for solo play it likely will play itself. Yes, there could be fun to be had to see if you can beat your previous scores, or playuing cooperatively with you kids would be a nice use of this game, but there is a pretty low ceiling on gaming ROI here if you ask us.
