I was super excited when I found this game for the SNES. I loved playing it and seeing the connections between the different systems of the Earth - how tectonic plate movement influenced life form diversity, how rainfall influences temperatures, etc. - and I was surprised and very delighted that it had been ported to the SNES. So far, it is exactly as I remember! Definitely not recommended for casual play, it will be boring for people who don't understand the Gaia concept or who want a quick, fun game. This game deals with evolution on a planetary scale, meaning billions of years. It will be long. But super perfect!
