Summary

A great game to play with friends and/or family!

The Good

The chance to live out a "fantasy" life. It's also fun seeing what others decide to do. The graphics are very good, and the little witticisms scattered throughout the game are funny.

The Bad

It's fun to play with 3 or 4 people, but it can be hard sharing the mouse/trackball and all crowding around the computer.

The Bottom Line

In Jones in the Fast Lane, all players start with basically nothing, and have to start their "lives" from scratch - you can be a teacher or an engineer, play the stock market, or work at a fast food joint. You win by being the most successful person first, and success is measured not just by financial worth but by happiness factors as well.
