Rise of Industry is a typical economic simulation where your goal is to build a large economic empire. You'll start with a city whose surrounding countryside you'll have to build up step by step. The aim is to make as much profit as possible in order to become the richest player. Each city initially has a certain number of certain goods that you can sell at a good profit. The goods are divided into different levels. Goods of the lower levels are of course worth less and easier to produce, while goods of the higher levels can only be reached in the endgame, but bring immense profit.
What a beautiful game. I've played hundreds of hours of Industry Gigant 2 and Capitalism 2 and ROI is going in a similar direction. For being EA, the game feels pretty ready. I hope that many more features will be added to make the game even better and more challenging. At the moment I'm missing some overview maps and a more accurate reporting system to see which industries are not profitable or not working at full capacity.
In any case the developers are doing a lot right here and I am looking forward to more content.
