Summary: I bought this game in June 2005, and was really excited about getting it. It seemed like a cool simulation game. I'd seen a few screen caps and heard that it was addictive in a novelty type of way. The game runs in real-time and this is good, but gets annoying when you're at school or work, so you can only go on it in the evenings, and most events tend to happen during the day. The graphics are simple and don't really make the gameplay any different.
