I rented this hoping for a nice little life simulator, and I got nothing. The score of 5 that I gave it was very generous.
The problem is that there isn't a point to the game. You start out with a job, but that's only for a few minutes and I believe they mean it to be training. After that, you go around picking up things that are on the ground and selling them back to the store. You can also go fishing and bug catching. The money you earn is meant to be used on clothes or things for your tiny square of a house.
It's like you have a second life! Or not. There's just no charm to this to make me want to play it.
This is an very cool game. I like sim. games so I loved it! There is holidays and people moving its kinda like the real world but your friends are animals! So get this game.... no really get this game....
