Default SimEarth

Yes, yes, its Maxis, its a sim game.
But did you know that even though its 10 or so years old its still for sale?
Yesterday, coming back from Calais on a ferry(School Trip) I was just browsing the shops with some friends, looking at the games on offer, and there, right infront of me, was Sim Earth, PC-Cd Rom! Not exactly what I'd expect! I didn't look closely at it though, as the wind was approaching 80 kmh and i had a headache...

This had to be one of the worst GAMES of all time. Corny to even think you could make a game to make a PLANET. of course it isn't gonna live up to the hype you think it would. This game should be destroyed and never sold or seen again.

I think it's a pretty good game, but its audience is certainly somewhat specific... The game isn't very accessible.

Oh, and I bought it a few months back
Those sim-games will be available forever, it seems

I played it, but as I recall, Chris Crawford sold the game stating up front it was an educational tool--not a game. It was designed to show just how interconnected dozens of factors are in controlling the Earth biosphere. That was all it was intended to do, and it did that extremely well.

Lucky's a big word. That game's nearly incomprehensible, as it has too many things to take into concideration.
