Very fun game.
Wii owners who like city-building games should pick this up, especially since you can get it quite cheap now.

Wow what a great game! Shame the sales are so bad almost affirming the lack of a sequel. Hope we see more games like this since the wiimote/nunchuck are great for controlling a city builder/RTS.
