Personal review
Guide the development of a planet and the lifeforms of it from primordial beginnings to the development and exodus of multiple intelligent species.

A large number of reviews claim there is no 'game' in this game. They are referring to the game's various open-ended modes play. These reviews ignore the scenarios mode with three levels of difficulty. Each mode has win conditions and loss conditions.

Description
Take charge of an entire planet from its birth until its death--10 billion years later. Guide life from its inception as single-celled microbes to a civilization that can reach for the stars. Inspired by James Lovelock's Gaia hypothesis, SimEarth simulates the Earth as a single living organism.
