In the Sim City clone of year, and with the absence of Electronic Arts' Sim City 4, you've been given the job of creating and maintaining an entire city in Natsume's Metropolismania. Using skills to attract new residents whilst maintaining a healthy status in the opinion polls, Metropolismania is a game that will put management skills to the ultimate test. You must interact with each and every citizen of your city, and only through befriending the people in your neighbourhood will you be introduced to new possible residents.

All members of your city have their own unique name and personality, as well as a variety of painstaking issues that need to be solved. Communication is the key here. Metropolismania offers much more than just friendly greetings. Conversations contain valuable topics of discussion, quizzes and clues on how to help accommodate the other people in town. Perhaps the best thing you can do in Metropolismania is listen. Manage that, and you're well on your way to winning the ultimate popularity contest.

There are five different stages, each with their own unique theme, and Metropolismania offers a wide range of establishments to build, including businesses such as bookstores, restaurants, banks, hospitals, and residential housing such as apartment complexes, houses, condominiums. A few amusement facilities such as nightclubs, parks and sports stadiums wouldn't go amiss either.

So there you have it - a PR exercise on a disk. And a good one at that, too.
