Maybe this game is why I have so much trouble killing ants but I loved this game. While I didn't get to appreciate it when it was first released on account of being too young to play computer, I enjoyed it later on in life. At first glance this game doesn't look like anything special, however once you start playing it's very easy to get lost in the fairly simplistic graphics and trance inducing background music (it sort of reminds me of Chips Challenge music but not as good). Many hours were spent building the best ant hill and defending it from the evil red fire ants.
If anyone has a chance to get their hands on this game, it would not be a waste of money. While it's no where near as intense and Call of Duty, the ant warfare can be fairly nerve wracking (who wants to see their hard work destroyed).
Thanks for reading :D I hope this helped and perhaps in the future I'll write a more indepth blog/ review about this and other Sim games.
(Also note, this game was made me Maxis... oh good ol' Maxis)
