Summary

Odd, Very Odd

The Good

I liked just fooling around this game. It's a toy, it's not a game. Just like all the good Sim games. The idea is great. The upgrades every week on the WWW page of the developer are just great. I every week have fired up the game just to see what has happened.

The Bad

The relationships in the game are just an add-on; nothing else. I think someone mentioned somewhere that Will Wright was doing Sim House before I realised the game was about the people. The game infact is just Sim House.

The Bottom Line

Handle people in their everyday lives.
