Summary

I just cant understand this game?

The Good

Nice graphics and cool idea.

The Bad

I am a avid (hooked) gamer. I started a new game of this and found my self having my character playing a PC in his home. Now stop me if this sounds bad, but doesn't that justify all the things that our wives say to us when they dont want us to play on the computer. Here I am simulating a guy playing his computer. Now I am convinced that all hope is lost for me. As for the game I could not understand what all the hype is. Its just normal life on PC. For my time I want to command armies, build cities, solve murders. Not doing chores and sleeping on line. NO THANKS!

The Bottom Line
