Reminiscent of the popular Settlers series, this release combines aspects of several games across the spectrum of real-time strategy, from Age of Empires to the Sims, to provide an experience that is both comfortably familiar and challengingly new. Players lead their tribes to greatness by developing communities, managing resources, researching new technology and building a powerful military. While an encompassing perspective can help a good leader look to the future, attention must also be paid to the details. As in the contemporary development simulation Tropico, each character in Cultures exists as a unique entity who can grow and learn according to experience, encouraging the gamer to invest more attention in the particulars of his citizenry instead of just pumping out units for one-time use. ~ T.J.
