Excerpt: I would just like to write a review on Hotel Giant, which is a game for the PC. As the name would suggest, this particular game falls under the genre of 'simulation games' (rather much like Simcity; Rollercoaster Tycoon and so on) so you should know roughly what this game is all about (or at least have some vague notion of the whole concept!). The basic play of the game is to build a hotel, and as Uncle Bryn would say - 'there it is'.
I challenge to have as much fun with a smaller price tag!

Excerpt: This game was one of the first I had for my computer back in 2002 or 2003 and I'm still playing it years later. The gameplay is seriously engaging and addictive. There are different modes: you can start with a pre-built hotel and manage/improve it or start from scratch (my favourite mode). The first step is to choose a location, then a type of hotel. You will find empty floors and a user-friendly menu, which has options for rooms, objects and textures.
Excerpt: Hotel Giant developed by JoWooD needs these system requirements: Windows® 95/98/ME/2000/XP Pentium® II 350 MHz or higher 128 MB RAM 700 MB free hard disk space 4x CD-ROM drive 16MB 3D video card Win-compatible sound card DirectX® 8.0a Keyboard, Mouse I have also successfully loaded it onto my PC which has Vista, im sure the newer versions of this out on sale have adapted to include Vista, but maybe its worth double checking before you buy.
Pros: Very addictive, if you like design and simulation games that is
Cons: Can be very slow occasionally,allows for more than enough tea breaks
Excerpt: Walking through my local Comet store with the husband, we were discussing games for 'girlies' when I said that I fancied something a little bit business like, something like The Sims, but with a purpose to aim for. On the bargain rail, there was a copy of the PC game Hotel Giant. Reading the info, it was basically saying that it was about running, designing and then building up your business, based within a hotel.
Pros: strategic, cheap,
Cons: boring, repetitive, limited choice, long methods, no real aim
Conclusion: I have played millions of games in my life (yes i am that sad) and i would vote this as the best game in the world if its not already this game is great for everyone, every gender, every age its great the only thing i would say about this game is that the game is getting a bit outdated in graphics compared to the newer games and its AI is a little predictably but what can i say this game is one of the best games made and its quite a challenge even for the most hardcore...
Conclusion: Such an adictive game - great for the money. Takes a while to get used to what does what etc, but overall its great. Lets you customise your hotel rooms to your own taste. Highly recommended.
Excerpt: This game involves strategy, intelligence, common sense and design a must have for all those who love life on the edge. Every time you play the scenarios are different and if you find to the same you can always custom build you own game that involves what you want nothing else. The game puts you into the role of a hotel owner; you make the decisions from the exterior building to how many channel there are on the room TV.
Pros: Good graphics, good gameplay senarios never the same
Excerpt: ============== Opening ==================== Enter the chalanging tourism industry, and try and make your hotel the best. You dont build a Hotel, which is probally what you would of expected as its called Hotel Giant. You build the stuff inside the Hotel, and you name your hotel. The realism of the game is great, its like you were one of the guests, romeing around in your own hotel.
Conclusion: I love this game. It's quite difficult at first, IMO, but it does get easier as you go along. Sometimes it can get frustrating when you don't achieve your goals, but that's more down to the player than the game! Addictive and harmless fun, a good tycoon style game!
