My video review is going up Friday (release day). It will be quite positive.
Can you give us any advance details on the co-op play? This is what I've been waiting to hear about for the game.
I haven't been able to try it out because there's nobody else online before the game comes out, but I do know the details based on the menus and such. You can set your game (when it is created) to either be competitive or cooperative. In the competitive mode, the first town on the island (which can be large enough to support up to 4 players comfortably) to complete a number of random missions, have a specific amount of cash, or research a high-level tech wins.
I'm not totally sure about how the cooperative mode works, since I can't start a cooperative game by myself: it could be that resources are shared, or just that you aren't competing against the other players and simply trying to reach a common goal. I suspect the it's latter option (like you are all trying to complete the same missions).
As for the earlier comments about the difficulty of the game: yes, it is quite easy to make a lot of money through exports. However, I have lost every game I have started either because of elections or military invasions.
