PC Review - Issue 8 (1992): "Not so much a world manager as a world builder, Maxis followed Sim City with an educational tool based on the Gaia hypothesis and puts the player in charge of every single aspect of a living planet, from the raising and lowering of land masses to the creation and population of the seas. The program is enormously flexible. You need a 286 or above to really appreciate the game. Complex in the extreme, and detailed enough to keep your interest for many months."
