I have to say this game really is fun, you immerse yourself in Egpytian life. Where great Pharoahs rule Egypt in an online world of strategy, life, hard labor, and some luck. You'll be able to build your home and have online neighbors to help get you through growing technology. Go by a lake and going fishing or start growing food for yourself, there are endless possibilities in this addicting game. Let me also note that this game is only a DEMO and you have a free trial account for 24 playing hours! I was tempted to buy this game until I looked at how the billing system works. You must pay $13.95 a month to play this game after your 24 hour free trial account. This would amount to a total of $167.40 a year! Thats like paying a internet bill! Thats how this "company" makes their money, instead of buying the game like most companies will do, they decided to charge $13.95 a month. For example lets say there were 100 customers that had monthly subscriptions for a year, then eGenesis (the company that made the game) would make $16,740! now .40 cents a day doesn't sound like much but when you add it all up in the long term, its a big chunk of money. Overall, if you have the money to spare and don't have much to do in your life this game is a lot of fun. The game is addicting enough to make you skip work. But if your like me and you think that hey I'm not going to pay $13.98 a month I would rather just pay one fee for the whole game, then lay it off. But, at least play the free trial account, its a lot of fun!
