I am glad I only rented this. I tried it out for a few days and I found that it wasn't really that fun at all. I didn't like that you couldn't have a 'real' conversation with the shop owners or the tourists. And it'd have been nice if the game was set in "real time" instead of the day being in four parts - morning, noon, afternoon and night. You can only have one character. In fact, the characters looked more like lego people with colorful parts than Sims.
The racquetball game was interesting, but very hard. I DID like the game in the flower shop where you could make Leis.
