Big, bold business simulation... maybe not so fun.

This is a typical well made, well polished and full fledged business simulator - you can find here all the important things you can expect to find in such title. To be honest, here you will find even too much - you will be soon under a fire of numbers, statistics and graphs!

Learning curve is very steep, tutorial miss a bit some in-deep analyze of some game mechanics - things you can anyway learn playing the game, but in hard, frustrating way.

When you start to master it, however, you can be enthralled by a very detailed simulation of quite-real markets, raging from gambling in stocks to developing a full line of "all-wants-it" products.

It is a good buy if you are an hardcore sim-gamer, otherwise I wouldn't recommend it, you can be drive away from it due to his complexity.

Mo Money, Mo Problems!

For anyone seeking an in-depth business simulator that ranges from farming, to manufacturing to retail all in one game, look no further than Capitalism 2.

Be warned though, this game has a steep learning curve, and it is highly recommend to go through the tutorials of this game to make sure you soak in all the details to quickly and easily make money. If you go rushing in head first you will likely get frustrated and quit before you can fully enjoy the game.

Starting out as an entrepreneur with a small fortune, you look to further your fortune by investing in all sorts of businesses and playing a dangerous game of buying cheap and selling high. One major difference between part 2 and the original, is definitely the upgrade to the graphics, but you can also invest in real estate and rent out apartments as a side venture.

If there's high demand for certain products, you can build a factory and manufacture products for cheap, and sell them to retailers for a huge profit, but just make sure you meet demand or the retailers may jump ship for a different product, or a cheaper/higher quality product.

The safe route can just simply going into retail and selling finished goods. Profits are usually not as large, but as long as the supply is there you will usually see cash roll in slowly I'd say this definitely is not a game for everyone, but if you aren't afraid of a challenge, and you like a good in-depth business simulator I say check out Capitalism 2.

Not for the casual gamer

georgecopos | Feb. 23, 2013 | See all georgecopos's reviews »

This game seems to have been developed by people who wanted to make a serious simulation of running a business, and some reviews below seem to indicate they were successful at that goal. Yet the game is not so good as entertainment for the majority. I could not get into it; the tutorial was difficult and moved too fast, and the graphics were unattractive, complicated and de-motivating. Having spent good money on it, I would like to get some fun from the game but I just can't bring myself to play for more than a few minutes.

Could well be quite engaging for those studying business administration or some similar discipline, but know what you're getting

Entertaining Simulator

IganX | July 22, 2012 | See all IganX's reviews »

A business simulator with a few strong points and many weak ones. In first place, the game is something which we have seen already many times, though the theme changes to seem original. Fun for a couple of hours, boring once you try all its mechanics.

Educational fun

As you can probably see this is not a game for everyone. Even if you are a fan of strategic games it takes quite time to get used to complexity contained in this title. But it's worth it. You can achieve your goals in many ways and by many means - from simple agriculture to investments in stocks. Besides, you can learn lot of things about modern economy. Quite addictive entertainment.
