Summary

Amusing SimHeaven/SimHell game

The Good

I like pretty much everything about the game. Your demonic and angelic assistants are rife with personality and contribute to the overall humorous tone of the game. The descriptions of the punishments and rewards are a scream, and the game is filled with humorous touches all over the place (such as the "Loading" screen, where you see the bar change from "35% done" to "Microwaving burritos" to "48 bottles of beer on the wall" etc).

The music is great, too.

The Bad

Afterlife has its own versions Sim City 2000's arcologies. They're called "Omnibolges" (for Hell) and Love Domes (for Heaven). Once you hit the stage of the game where you can put down the biggest of the three Omnibolges or Love Domes, the game's pretty much over.

The Bottom Line

A humor-filled, light-hearted look at the afterlife, complete with Disco Demons, the Four Surfers of the Apocalypso, Bats Out of Hell, and more! If you liked Sim City 2000, you're almost certain to like Afterlife.
