    "This is such a cool game, especially if you have friends join you. You really create a city, but keep in mind that it would be hard to do if you don't have friends (that's just how the game works). This isn't an action packed 3D game, it's just a simple visual that will keep you interested and sharing. When you have friends on board, then you can really do well sharing resources. "
