Demolish and Build Classic offers an immersive construction simulation experience with its nice graphics and a full 3D world. The game’s 1.79GB download size is a fair trade-off for the Platinum trophy and compatibility with the Playstation 5. Players are provided with 3 save slots and can enjoy the freedom of an open world where they can drive, walk, or run around to find jobs and interact with the environment.

The gameplay involves taking on contracts to earn cash and experience points (exp), with the ultimate goal of acquiring better tools for larger jobs. The game features ongoing tutorials, a 360-degree camera control, and an interactive map that reveals jobs and fast travel points upon discovery. Shops offer new tools and machinery, which can also be found for sale worldwide.

Players will appreciate the instant delivery of machinery at job sites, the dynamic feedback with dollar signs, and the realistic physics engine that affects structures based on player actions. The game also includes in-car and out-of-car views, a working radio, and the ability to lay down markers to create routes on the mini-map.

Demolish and Build Classic allows for a personalized gaming experience where players can save at will, tackle contracts in any order, and approach building demolition as specified. The controls are easy to learn, and the gameplay is described as satisfying. Players have senses that highlight targets/structures, and vehicles require refueling and repairs, with the option to attach different parts.

The game encourages strategic management through buying and renovating spots on the map to generate income, hiring and firing workers, and finding collectible hard hats. Players can earn exp and level up to access better vehicles, and the touchpad can optionally control the camera. The day and night cycle adds to the realism, and while there is a loose story providing guidance, players have the freedom to explore.

However, the game is not without its drawbacks. New players may find the initial tutorials unclear, and there are occasional hangs when discovering new locations or saving. The buildup of exp and cash can feel slow, controls cannot be rebound, and there are instances of slowdown. Transitioning to new parts of the map involves a loading screen, and the petrol mechanic for vehicles may seem redundant. The AI traffic is limited and behaves poorly, and there is noticeable pop-in and pop-out.

Overall, Demolish and Build Classic offers a robust and enjoyable construction simulation with a few areas for improvement. The game’s open-world design, interactive elements, and satisfying gameplay mechanics make it a title worth considering for fans of the genre or anyone that just wants to smash shit up and get paid.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
