Here's your chance to make it big in the Big Apple. New York
City, the city that never sleeps. Go for broke building your
own Manhattan empire, creating and customising over 100 types
of major businesses: run a hot nightclub, oversee a media
conglomerate, open a lucrative Broadway theatre - the choices
are endless. As your success grows, so will your reputation
- your face on TV reports, your name in lights, and the city
at your feet. With world-renowned landmarks, true-to-life
neighbourhoods, and spectacular New York events, you're constantly
in the thick of the action, becoming a major mogul in America's
most exciting metropolis. High-profile industries, real-world
brands, and a bustling 24-hour city give every player the
chance to make it big...
Tycoon City: New York, the aim of the game is to become

New York City.
must create and improve your businesses to outclass the competition
and become richer and more famous than anyone else in New
York City. You start from humble beginnings as a budding entrepreneur
and build a Manhattan empire by creating, upgrading, and customising
more than 100 types of major businesses based on the needs
of New Yorkers in the game. Challenges include running a nightclub,
owning a hot new restaurant chain, and opening a Broadway
theatre. High-profile industries, real-world brands, and a
bustling round-the-clock lifestyle give every player the chance
to make it. All of these challenges take place in authentic
New York neighbourhoods like the East Village, Chelsea and

York City is recreated in 3D and features famous landmarks
including the Statue of Liberty, the Empire State Building,
and Times Square. There are over two dozen in-game partners,
including TIME Magazine, Toys'R'Us, Virgin Megastore, Staples,
Olympus, Marquee, Nokia, Tag Heuer, and D'Agostino's, to "lend
the game added realism" as the press release states.

crashing down around your ears. This makes it a little too
cutesy-poos for my liking. Why couldn't the competition be
more ruthless, and attempt to destroy you so that they can
take over your businesses?
be honest, it's this that is the main sticking point of the
game. You never really feel under pressure when you are building
your empire. And, ultimately, this makes what could have been
a fantastic game into just a quite good one.
