When my mother finally got her own Wii and a copy if this game last year so I could have mine back, she had logged 98 hrs. playing Help Wanted. I was close behind with over 70!!
My goal was to become a master at EVERY job, get rich, and fill my hall with ALL of the things you can buy.
Mom just worked at the jobs she liked and ignored the rest.
You buy support items that help you do better and earn more $ while working. Sometimes you have a challenge to do better than the previous day to earn 3X you pay, sometimes your little cousins hide your support items. They also make juice for you that can make you work better without having to use your support item, or it can make you sick.
I love that even when you finish and want to start over, your expert ratings stay. (You save everything after the credits. I don't know if you keep you ratings if you don't do this)
Yes, every job is a mini game, and yes, some are strange. But they are all fun and challenging. So much Variety you just Can't get bored. You can also bypass the strange cut scenes, but some are entertaining.
