Excerpt: "...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'. But when I say 'build' a hotel, ...
Maximum Capacity: Hotel Giant (PC): Hotel Giant is a good idea executed well
16 July 2009
Summary: 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.
Pros: Ability to create your own hotel. Follow customers. Incentives. Easy to pick up.

Summary: Hotel Giant is a business simulation game that as the title suggests allows you to build, design and manage your very own hotel in up to 23 of the locations available to choose from. I bought this game for just £5 from Game in a 2 for 10 deal and so I was not expecting this game to be very good. The game was released in May 2007 and so has been around for a long time now.
Pros: Very good concept with enjoyable gameplay throughout.
Cons: May seem out dated now and no multiplayer features.
Summary: In this game you run a hotel, the main purpose of the game is to keep the customers happy whilst also meeting the requirements for each level. I began the game by playing the tutorial which I found was a bit long winded and went on for too long. Once I had finished this I had forgotten lots of the things it told me first. You begin with an empty hotel, you have to build everything, from the rooms to the lights.
Summary: Hotel Giant is very much like the Sims games that are about. The graphics are not great but adequate for the purpose of the game. When you load the game, you have the option of the tutorial, i chose this as i had no idea what to do. However, it was very tiresome and long winded, it wanted you to try out all of the actions before moving on to learn the next one. I got bored and quit to the main menu and opted to start a proper game instead.
Pros: Will keep you entertained for hours and you wont even realise

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: "...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. It sounded really interesting, and only needed basic specs such as the normal ram and spaces with games. The good thing that I liked was it was playable on older machines, so no worrying about compatibility. We paid £2.50 for it and off home we went. Firstly, it loaded fairly ...
Pros: strategic, cheap,
Cons: boring, repetitive, limited choice, long methods, no real aim
