Summary

Does art imitate life, or does life imitate art?

The Good

Very realistic present-day feel, yet just silly enough to help you remember you're still just playing a game. We've all had days like this -- Bureaucracy helps us laugh at ourselves and relax a bit. (Blood pressure gets measured in the game, and you drop dead if it gets too high!)

The Bad

The designers did a GREAT job of imitating the frustrations of paperwork and red tape found in real life. Good for the game, irritating if you just came home from waiting in line at the bank...

The Bottom Line

Play it. You'll like it. Just don't destroy your computer in frustration.
