  I am addicted to this game!

| | See all emz4482's reviews (2)

Everyone says about how it is not as good as the PC version, but obviously DS games are going to be more limited, so it's a really good game for a DS game.
I bought this game a while back, and make sure I play every day. So addictive. You start where your car breaks down and then you take over as the manager of the hotel, while you wait for your car to be repaired. There are all sorts of tasks to keep you busy around the hotel, but my favourite part is when the ancient Egyptian sarcophagus turns up.

  Good but not fantastic

A think this game is really good at the beginig you are given lots of thingsto do but then you start to get less and less .but once you have bought all the rooms you have nothing else to buy so you just end up with the money and u have no use for it.but once you have compleated the game you dont have much more to do but it is good .then after you have completed it you carry on with the game but dont have many goals to complete and the goals can get repeative and you end up doing the same thing all the time!

I actually liked this game. You have lots of missions to complete, and get clues along the way. There were a couple of occasions that I had to go on-line for tips, but I succeeded in the end! I'm not really in to games, but I think this game would appeal to anyone, due to having to problem solve, and being able to actually see what you are managing to build....a hotel!

Its really good when you start out,but once you've reached and built all new rooms it just becomes the same day in and out,it does take you a while you earn cash to get to that stage but its a good game for the price,and will keep you busy for a while.

  Not what I was expecting

I bought this recently and I have to say it was a disappointment. I'm a Sim fan but this isn't anything like the PC games.

Firstly, you design one sim, not a family. Then you're sim is rapidly put in charge of a hotel, you can't redesign it, just add ready made rooms. Sure, you can buy furniture but a limited supply that does little to the gameplay.

The game runs on real time and you often you have to build something which takes eight hours (I'm not exagerating) leaving you nothing to do in the meantime. You have to turn your DS off for eight hours and play again later.

There are some interesting events, like aliens invading but honestly I'd say you should save your money and either buy the PC version or look for another DS game.

  Terrible game

This is on my list of really bad games, it is nothing like previous sim titles, It is tedious boring and there is very little to do, and you have no reason to ever pick it up again.

As a whole the game is fun to play but to complete some of the missions you have to build rooms which means waiting 8 hours (real time) to complete. I found that the majority of the time I played the game for about 10 mins and then turned it off till the next day when I could complete the mission.

I absolutely loved this game on DS. I wasn't sure how it would work on the DS, after playing the Xbox versions, but it works really well. There is loads to do and you have to attain some goals at certain times of the day, so a good excuse to get out of cooking the dinner! I really enjoyed it and was sad when I had completed everything. A definite one to buy!
