Game Review:

How often are revolutionary or completely unique games that completely change the face of gaming released? Those types of games are not released very often because there are not too many computer geniuses that know what it takes to make a successful game. But when these games are released, gamers will often flock to them as if these games were Ghandi or the Pope. How can one tell if a game is one of these superior types? Usually, it's extremely difficult to tell how well a game stands or what it is like, as the media and company like to hype up a product that is just a dud. However, one trend that has proven to develop revolutionary and unique products are games developed from such masterminds behind Maxis and Firaxis. Such computer gaming "engineers" Will Wright, Sid Meier, and Chris Sawyer have developed some of the most well known and revolutionary games, Sim City, Civilization, and Railroad Tycoon. The most recent of the releases from one of these masterminds is The Sims, from the Sim product line master, Will Wright.
