Love the game, though it wears thin soon.
I really enjoyed playing this game online, and I think it was probably the game that made me join in with the whole online gameplay hype..
There are a few modes such as "Make the most profit" and "Highest Empire Value", and they are cool to play online, and it's even better because you can work out certain techniques to get there faster. Although this can be annoying when you're new, and you have no idea what you're doing because of the better players are doing this. But then again, this is a great way to learn.
You can change the settings in the game to make it run faster or slower, which is determining whether the computer you're running on it can handle the better quality settings. You can also change the board settings, as in you can make it so that the board has all of the British names, or the US names, or any other version for that matter. I just remember there being big list :P
I'd also recommend this game ;) 7 Thumbs up ;)
