Jorgenson Platform for Display:PC Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   This game was interesting in that the cultural, industrial, technological, and psychological aspects of Alcatraz prisoners are touched on - such as the boat arriving only twice a day with supplies and new hired guards. However, this game was difficult to understand because of the lack of help from the game tutorial mode.When I first started playing this game, I used the tutorial mode. The tutorial was somewhat helpful, but not as helpful as the tutorials have been in other tycoon games. So I looked around online for other tutorials or walkthroughs - something, ANYTHING to help me figure out how to make the prisoners, staff, and guards happy. I couldnt really find any full walkthroughs. That made me wonder: is this game so difficult that no one has really taken the time to make a complete walkthrough guide for the general public?I found this game difficult because of a few different factors. First, there are lots of tabs on the left and right of the screen which are explained briefly in the tutorial. But there are so many of them, that its difficult to get the hang of using them all for what they need to be used for. Also, I had no idea the ratio of guards to prisoners I needed, nor did I understand how to improve the moods of the prisoners. Also, you can buy different things for your prison , but there is no explanation as to what the prisoners want. On the tabs where you buy things for the different rooms of your cellhouse, it looks as though, as the game goes on, more items may become available for purchase , though no explanation is given as to how to get those items, nor when those items appear, nor the contents of those items. In other words, I would like to know how to achieve the highest possible happiness for the people in the game, and Id like to know how to achieve the best-working prison in my game. No help is given as to how to achieve either of those.These are just a few examples. Overall, the game is interesting, but theres really no assistance given. And for people like myself who have no patience to figure out 90% of the game on my own, it was frustrating. Read more › Comment |  Was this review helpful to you?

I have played most of the Tycoon games and this one is by far the worst, which is a shame because they are usually great and fun games to play with hours of intertainment. This game is far from fun and entertaining. The game crashes constantly, like every 10 minutes so save your game every few minutes, otherwise you lose all your progress and have to start all over again. Its impossible to make money to buy extra buildings and staff as I cant seem to get past $10,000 as everything you have to buy on a daily basis like food, heating oil etc takes all of your daily profit, so you cant get anywhere in the game. HORRIBLE!!! Please take this game off the market and fire the people that invented it....DONT BUY!!!!!!!!! Comment |  Was this review helpful to you?

Interresting concept, but EVERYTHING is done wrong, is buggy, slow even on good PC, just terrible all over. Cant believe I wasted the past 5 hours playing this crap. Do not buy this game, it is the worst of the worst. My God, how does a serious company/self-respecting developer even allow this to be released.... 1 Comment |  Was this review helpful to you?

You can definitely get lost play previous versions for hours. However, this release doesnt follow with the rest of the series. While the scenery of Alcatraz is well done, the gameplay is clumsy at best. The tutorial is not very helpful and it takes an hour just to figure out how to play the game. If youre interested in this type of game, I would recommend purchasing any of the other four previous Prison Tycoon games over this one.Pros:- Accurate Alcatraz scenery- Historically interestingCons:- Poor user interface- Unhelpful tutorial with many glitches Comment |  Was this review helpful to you?
