Tycoon casino

Another trial of this game is that after a while, the game becomes incredibly easy. This is great in a situation where the player merely wants to build up the largest and most attractive empire, but for anyone looking for a challenge, this game isn't it. It was a bit disappointing that increasing the price of some of the games right away and placing as many as I could would bring in money faster than I could spend it. To bring in more customers, a player only needs to purchase more of the land and plotting down items methodically seems to have little place in Casino Tycoon, unless the aspect a player likes most about a game is in aesthetics.

Graphics aren't all that impressive. The customers are blocky and most of the games are not detailed. Some of the animation can be interesting to watch, for a short time. The cocktail waitress delivers drinks and returns to the bar, where her tray is refilled and she waves to patrons until someone wants a drink. The dealers appear to be dealing cards and do so accurately, depending on how many gamblers are at the table. However, in what appears to be a bug, patrons would keep crossing the floor in front of the entrance over and over instead of going into the casino to spend their money. The camera angle is customizable and zooming in on a specific table or zooming out to include a large portion of the casino is available.

Music can get somewhat annoying, but the sound effects can be fun to listen to. The slot machines cha-ching and the ATM Machines make bleeping noises. Sound is nothing too special though.

Casino Tycoon might have been a great game if it had been released 2 years ago, but with the other tycoon games on the market, it falls miserably short of being any good. Graphics are sub-par and the game is not at all challenging. In the grand scheme of tycoon games, this one lacks where others don't. This means Casino Tycoon is a pass, not a play.
