The same thing we do every night... Try to take over the world!

That's more or less the goal here. World (market) domination and in doing so, the humiliation of between 1 to 8 AI (or human) opponents. It does get slightly more complicated than that, but there in lies the appeal.
The tutorial helps to get ones feet wet where as the fully customisable open game allows you to jump in to a game for you to test your metal (or leather, or one ofread more the hundred or so other commodities). Choosing between farming, mining, manufacturing and retailing (or any combination of the above if you want to take over the whole production chain) gives a wide scope for every game without ever getting bogged down by micro-management.

You cannot build the pretty buildings you see on the screen, they are just there to show you how each city looks. The object of this game is to learn how to balance ones business with their resources. Other scenarios allow one to try and cut costs of a losing company, learn how to trade stocks, find out how to manufacture goods. Once you have played this game you know howread more society works and it is a great asset in the business world. Do not expect to be excited by animations the excitement comes when you start shutting down your competitors.

Best economic game ever ?

Posted on 2010-03-01 09:42:43 bygreeg's avatargreeg:

Capitalism 2 is an amazing, economic game, which offers very high complexity, not available in current (targeted to "average Joe") games. I would say that it's perfect for students interested in economical aspects of running a company. Branding, marketing, competing with local sellers, selling imported products or create products just from subproducts - reallyread more tons of options and huge fun for those who need a little bit more complexity than current "economical" games offer.
Shame that Capitalism 3 has never appeared.
