This used to be one of my favorite games as a kid. I loved the minigames and the different fashions that you could use for your characters. I also loved to play it with my friends and especially my brother. (A little sibling rivalry is healthy. Especially when its in a game of marbles.) So I thought I'd give it another shot when I joined GameFly.
My disk was BROKEN.
I was so excited when it came in the mail, but when I put the disk in, it wouldn't go past the Sony screen. Thinking it was a problem with my PS2, I cleaned the disk tray. Still didn't work. I tried turning it off and on, unplugging and replugging it in, cleaning the disk itself, nothing worked! It turns out I had a defected disk.
I know it's not the game's fault, but I was really disappointed.
However, if I remember correctly, it was a decently fun game. My brother and I both had hard times with the mini games and beating the game in the time given, but all in all it was fun. I especially loved when you'd go too far and your "Mother" would yell at you, telling you to come back home. It was little things like that that really made the game memorable for me.
