SummaryBrilliant game which fails where all other SIM games fail - it gets dull.
The GoodMassively addictive when you first start. The graphics and sound are wonderful, but it is the totally compelling nature of the game which keeps you playing.
The BadAfter a few weeks of playing, I realised that it just doesn't go anywhere. Create your families, get them promoted, build their dream homes... and then what? It's the same with all SIM games (especially SIM City). After a while you realise that there's no end to the game, no greater purpose, and it's very easy to lose interest. Every now and then (say 6-8 months) you can go back to it a re-discover it all over again, but it never has any long term appeal.
