"As with all games of this type, the fundamental premise of Traffic Giant is to micro-manage resources and infrastructure. Specifically, the game is concerned with the public transport system operating within and between various towns. There is a choice of two different play styles. The first is that of the entrepreneur, with the commercial objective to maximise profits. The second is more of a public servant role, e.g. a government officer in charge of public transport, focused on the well-being of citizens whilst being mindful of the need to win votes at the next election. In both cases, there is a great deal of information to absorb and disseminate. Essentially, the player can expect to find himself managing a juggling act, trying to optimise the use of resources to satisfy the differing transport needs of residential, commercial and industrial areas.

"The scale of gameplay looks impressive with each map being populated by between 4,000 and 40,000 residents. There will 25 different modes of transport to utilise and up to 1,000 pedestrians and vehicles can be represented on screen simultaneously. The 'lifelike' cityscapes will be made up of no less than 500 buildings; so we should safely be able to say goodbye to the repetitious skyline that dogs the SimCity series. To spice things up a little, there will be a number of special events to cope with as well - such as managing the additional congestion caused from having to host the World Cup Final!"

"The fierce competition in business simulations demands that new games offer something special to stand out from the crowd, and healthy early sales figures on the continent, with over 200,000 units shipped in a matter of months, suggest Traffic Giant has the right stuff to compete..."
