If you enjoyed the first two, expect more fun! It's the same gameplay, with revisions to the building and ordering menus, plus new buildings and random events. As the first reviewer said, there are more clicky things, but as the second reviewer said, they are bonus items you don't NEED to click on. I can understand the frustration of the third reviewer. There are lots of things the tutorial doesn't tell you -- like houses aren't the only way to make money; stores and bakeries also earn income, and some of the random events can pay off well. You can see if buildings earn or use income by mousing over them in the Build Menu. I think you can sell buildings that are damaged but not ones that are destroyed -- but yeah, they don't tell you that; that's just been my experience. If you haven't played this series, it's Resource Management, Time Management, Strategy, and Action. Different levels require different tactics depending on the Objectives. It's not graphics-intensive. I find it fussy about clicking in exactly the right place. As discussed above, the tutorial is not comprehensive. It's not necessary to play the first two before jumping into this one, but the first one in the series was slower to introduce new buildings, and ramped up the challenge more gradually.
