Ubisoft have sneaked out Metropolismania 2 on PlayStation 2, the first instalment of which was released way back in 2002. Going by various sources on the internet, this sequel was quietly placed onto shelves last month. Possibly by spies under the cover of total darkness.
I picked up my copy from Morrisons for a modest Â£5.99. But be warned: the price reflects the quality somewhat. The first game quickly turned into a chore as you had to keep talking to your citizens to get them to persuade their friends to move into town. Six years on and nothing has changed, apart from the visuals which are now cel-shaded.
There are better ways to waste Â£5.99, particularly in a supermarket that sells both beer and cake. And Jammy Dodgers.
