One of the most unknown business simulation games ever made, Oligopoly from XOR is best described as a “macro” version of the classic board game Monopoly: instead of plots of land in a city, you buy and sell industries. The game includes some micro-management options, such as setting product pricing, but they pale in comparison to the real meat of the game: taking over other companies. As the name implies, Oligopoly is all about getting your way in the market at the expense of others. You can buy and sell stocks, engage in hostile acquisitions, price wars, and other niceties that make up modern-day capitalism. Your objective is to be the biggest, most powerful, and only conglomerate left standing at the end of the day. While Oligopoly doesn’t boast good graphics, it does pack a lot of options and commendable realism given its age. Overall, a fun, unassuming “light” business sim that is ideal for armchair businessmen who found Dani Bunten’s Cartel$ & Cutthroat$ a bit too complex and abstract.
