Summary

I love watching paint dry.

The Good

Not a lot to tell the truth. I could probably have more fun with a big gun, 2 pencils and a balloon.

I guess it was original in the setting of a farm, but Maxis have exhausted just about every possibility for a sim game there is.

It was good though to watch out for your horses and then try and catch them as they all run around.

The Bad

Most of it I think. I couldn't for the life of me get anything to grow, and when I did have horses, they always escaped. No, don't take my uselessness as bitterness towards the game, I am indeed a big fan of the Maxis sim games, but this one was just the pits. :(

The Bottom Line

I wouldn't bother describing it to you, I'd instead recommend that you grab a copy of the original Sim City, or Sim City 2000. Sim Earth is even a great improvement on this one.
