Count me grossly unimpressed, so much so that I sold it back to the store. It might have helped if I were a Cyberspace player, but I was looking for a book on an arcology, and this one was completely unimpressive. The arcology had 24,000 citizens and was a basic company town. There's a reason why there's no RPG books on Poughkeepsie; it's because towns of 24,000 are boring as heck. There's a large section on the mall, if you ever really cared which stores the teenage girls hang out in in your cyberspace game. There was a lengthy section in the front about the history of the company, which is possibly interesting to Cyberspace people, and a bunch of short entries gangs, many of which needed more detail about greater Chicago to be useful. (And how many really interesting gangs does a city of 24,000 really have? Especially with how tightly controlled they describe the arcology as being.) ( )
