    Mall Tycoon is a big reason why I subscribed to GameSpot Complete. As a huge RollerCoaster Tycoon fan, and having played demos of games like RailRoad Tycoon and Monopoly Tycoon, I expected the game to be great, and live... Read Full Review

    This would have been better off as a music CD.The Music is just about the only good quality in this lame game.

    I've owned this game for a long time,years infact.Of course I was much younger then. But even then I knew this game was a bit lackluster. This games graphics are horrendus! They make early 90's games look like masterpiec... Read Full Review

    It's playable, and, unfortunately, that's not a good thing.

    Shopping Centre Tycoon, or Mall Tycoon as it's also known, is another in a long line of games with the word tycoon in their title. Most of these represent solid, if uninspiring games that you might enjoy for a short whil... Read Full Review

    Sad, just plain sad...

    Someone once said "Never judge a book by its cover." In this case it means that a very attractive cover can open up to @#$!. It really is quite sad, I could have been good but just wasn't made well. Don't even borrow... Read Full Review

    This game taught me a lesson...

    ...the lesson, never buy a game based purely on a franchise. I was mezmorized by Roller Coaster Tycoon. I just loved every little crevice of it. When I first heard of Mall Tycoon, I thought it would deliver the same e... Read Full Review
