Do anyone play this game?
My sister bought it the other day, and I actually enjoyed it very much! Belive me or not.
For those of you who doesnt know it, it's kind of a strategy-game, based on real life, where you have to go and get jobs, buy furniture, make dinner etc.



see ya!

NO, i haven't played it but i've watched other people play it. It looks cool though. I actually wanted that game once.

Yeah, I've got it. It's a decent game in all aspects, apart from its lifespan. After a week solid playing, it becomes the most boring game in the world, as it is the same thing over and over and over and over and over again.

Good in SHORT bursts!

It's not got much replay value, it's more or less the same thing over and over again with few random events.

It'll keep you entertained for perhaps a week, nothing more.

It's incredibly addictive at first but as everyone else said it quickly becomes boring and monotonous after a while.

Definatly Not When It First Came Out! About £40!!! Its Alot Cheaper Now! I'd Just Recommend Borrowing It Of A Friend And Playing Until You Get Bored (A Week)

I've played Sims. It's a really good game. One of my friends is mad with it!

To me I really couldn't see the attraction, and I normally like strategy games. It was just to boring. Maybe I need more injection of power fantasy in my life, pretending to be a king instead of a normal person.
