Life Quest 2
My Life is Improving by Leaps and Bounds!
What a MAJOR improvement this game is from the original, which I gave low scores for because ... well ... been there, done that, got the t-shirt AND changed it's color - LOL!
You're all grown up and on your own as you get to complete daily challenges (well, not really daily, some take a few days to complete). Your absolute daily things are EAT (yeah, that's kind of important), go to work (yuk - yeah, I know), improve your education (school never ends) and still find time to relax, shop, or find other ways to keep your happy meter ... well ... happy.
The game started out pretty slow and I thought, oh no, boredomville NOT Metropville. But, before I knew it, I was zooming around town on my fancy bike, moving into a luxury apt., having pets, finding friends, going to the amusement park multiple times, taking classes to better my job prospects, changing jobs and opening a bank account. ALL that and more just in the hour free demo.
I really enjoyed this game thoroughly and can't really think of any reason why I wouldn't purchase it. Except, maybe, okay ... I'm old and done it all already - LOL. Still, I'm on the fence about it but while I'm figuring out what to do, I recommend everyone try this game of life. You don't need to have played the first one to play this one. In fact, I recommend you don't because this one is waaaaay better.

Liked LQ1 Graphics Alot Better!!!
Having played LQ1 numerous times as women and men, I was thrilled when I saw this over the weekend. Well.....Good storyline but the graphics are not the same. Not sure what happened. People / Body types were better last time. However, enjoyed having children to pick up at child care, investing money and being able to be friends first with a potential spouse instead of picking them up at the nightclub or a personal ad. A little warning about needing to propose while wearing your bridal clothing would have been nice. I got married in a business suit after I had spent time picking out a dress and shoes. Grrrrrrr. Any way to bring the graphic quality back from LQ1? Also, not everyone wants to get married and have kids. Being single should be an option or/and being single and adopting. Just a thought.

This was a disappointing sequel to the original Life Quest. The graphics are amateur and the game play was a little confusing at first. The plot is the same as the first just a different story line. There are more body types and heads to choose from, but the clothing choices are very lacking and need much improvement to even compare with the first game. Better job choices and athletic classes to choose from though. They need to make a third one and combine the awesomeness of each of the two games to make one awesome game instead of two lacking games.

As someone who has played the original so many times, I've lost count, this sequel was disappointing. The clothing and furniture choices are AWFUL, There is never the option to "eat at home". It's not an awful game, it's just not nearly as much fun as the first, let alone better.

Graphics are so Poorly Drawn they Ruin the Game
I really enjoyed the first version of this game. It was fun to compete against those you went to high school with and you could decorate your home, pick out clothes in your choice of colors - just lots of variety. I found it entertaining and relaxing at the same time.
I'm a bit embarrassed to admit it, but I absolutely LOVE picking out clothes for my character and getting to decorate where I live.
However, the glowing praise is about the first game only. I don't know what the makers were thinking when they ok'd the graphics for this game. The people are UGLY and so is your avatar. No matter what you pick, it's AWFUL. The graphics look like something some not particularly gifted child drew. I'm sorry to be so cruel but they were truly hideous.
The clothes were not great like the first game and the furnishings you got to pick from for your house were out of proportion to each other and didn't fit the room. Everything was too tiny.
I liked that I could run for office in this game and there were some good job choices, you got to make friends with the townspeople and more places to go and things to do but I just can't get past the graphics. Honestly....What WERE they thinking????
This is such a shame. I really looked forward to this new version of the game and it fell far short of my expectations. I still play the original version but most likely, won't be playing this one much, if at all, in the future.

Not As Good As The First
Like the first Life Quest very much, but this one is not as fun. Don't like the way the challenges are in this game versus the first game. Instead of imporving or making it better it was worse. I did like the fact you could build relationships in this version, that was a plus. It was ok the first time around, but had no desire to play more than that.

I agree with impulsive1 on this..
I'm not really into fashion, but I had a hard with this game right from the start because of the clothing. It's horrid and it makes the game seem generic and less enjoyable. I also disliked the fact that you had to wear things in outfits to earn more money. That made the clothing even worse looking. They need to make another Life quest, and let a woman design the clothes.
Honestly, I can't really place my finger on it, but there is something about this game that just really annoyed me. It's lacking something from the first, but also has more at the same time. This is where I really agree though, and say they should make a third one, and just stop leaving things out and combine the two with added improvements for an all out awesome game!

Reasonably fun, but limited game play
I bought this game after purchasing the demo, but found that this game had little replay value. Once I completed all the "life quests" (some of which are rather dull, such as collecting money by clicking the "work" button), there was nothing novel to discover.
I'm a bit surprised by the very high ratings, especially considering the quality of other well-known simulation games.

Too much complaining by the possible mates! Who wants that! You really need gentlemen in there! The things to purchase for your home is limited. Decorating your home - wallpaper etc.... atrocious and the character design a far fall from the original Life Quest. The good restaurant is limited to only one and the recreation is very limited. The good thing is there is much more career choices! If this was worked on it could really outshine the original!
