I love the game, however it freezes and crashes so often that I can't even enjoy playing it. As games that require more RAM don't crash on my phone, nor any other game, I know the issue is with City Island. Maybe they aren't properly supporting this version because of having 4 sequels; but if not, just get rid of this one. Otherwise, start fixing it because it really could be so much fun! If it weren't for the bugs, I would give it 5 stars.

As others have said, the game is slow. The most annoying part of this game is the freezing up and suddenly closing with no warning . There were ratings from several years ago regarding this issue but its blatantly clear there was nothing done to correct it. It does have potential to be a really good game, but I uninstalled because of the many glitches and slow moving game play.

The game is really fun. Like it's better than I expected. I really enjoy playing it and it's one of the better games in this genre that I've played. There's a few let downs, like not being able to roam 360 with the camera.But I can still look past that. The most horrible and frustrating thing in the world is the fact that it keeps on crashing. Sometimes mid game, and I exit and re enter. Then it doesn't even allow me to enter at all. And if I do gifts for my citizens, it doesn't give me gold!!
