Summary: This one was good, but not close to the best addition. Good Things: You did not have to worry about curb appeal. The premier lots helped in making a profit. The option to permit lots and upgrade to a fourth star helped in making a profit. Bad Things: At a low level, they expect you to have an extremely large amount of rent. $30,000 rent with just Tudors is HARD. The 'Property Taxes' addition would sometimes cost you a LOT.
Summary: This game just wasn't for me. You basically have a goal to make so much money by buying, developing, renting, and selling properties. In the career mode, you have a time limit to make a certain amount of money; in the casual mode, you finish the neighborhood when you meet your goal. I much prefer the casual mode. Still, it became monotonous. Buy, build, upgrade, sell. Buy, build, upgrade, sell. Buy, build, upgrade, sell. Buy, build, upgrade, sell.
