The One
The first-class presentation (which we've come to expect from all Sierra On-Line products) is largely responsible for the generally good feeling you get while playing: digitised animations are used for all the characters (incidentally, each digitised person is a Sierra employee) and individual themes are used for each of the locations, MacDonald's style tunes for the fast food restaurant, cool music for the clothes shop and so forth.

Power Play
Die Idee ist nett: Jones beschreibt alles, was das Leben zur Hölle macht: Die Woche schuften, schuften, schuften und dann ab ins Wochenende. Wenigstens bin ich einmal das geworden, was ich nie werden wollte: Ein erfolgreicher, respektierter und stinklangweiliger Bankangestellter. Als Brettspiel wäre Jones sicher witzig. Doch bis vier Personen am Computer entschieden haben, braucht man eine Weile. Auch alleine vermag Jones nicht zu fesseln: Beim vierten Mal wird jeder auch noch so flotte Spruch ein wenig schal. Nett für Gelegenheitsspieler, eine witzige Unterhaltung, aber mehr leider nicht.

(CD-ROM version)
“Spiel des Lebens“-Freunden könnte Jones in the Fast Lane durchaus einige unterhaltsame Nachmittage bescheren, während sich Liebhaber ernsthafter Strategiespiele wahrscheinlich bald über den Kauf ärgern werden.
