With so many games designed to be solitaire only, I'm always a bit hesitant on non-solitaire games with solitaire variants. So how is this one? Is it fantastic or just okay?
Honestly? I just found the solitaire to be meh. Since the AI "players" don't actually do research and don't really have any money (if I remember correctly) it just is so different from the primary game. Also, I pretty easily won the first time I played it solo and due to the weird scoring mechanisms, I honestly thought I was in last place at the end of the game but ended up winning pretty handily because the AI bot players' scores are reduced a certain amount.
Absolutely fantastic multiplayer game however! And I only played it once solo so take my comments with a grain of salt.
