Life Quest 2
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.

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!

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.

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.

I'm actually disappointed with this game. I LOVE the original Life Quest, so I guess I just had high expectations for the sequel. I don't like how the characters look. I was hoping they would be more "cartoony" like they were in the original but with better features and better clothes etc. I do like how you can take your husband to the spa and change his looks a little bit. I also like the fact that you have to pick up your kids from daycare...I forgot like 20 times...you can tell I'm not a mom :) I just expected something more from this sequel and felt slightly let down.

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.

Good,but not great
I liked the game, but not as much as the first. I liked that the challenges were harder,but I did not like that you still had to get married and have kids for one of the challenges. AND why does the spouse never work or chip in. Also,I was hoping that the second one would have more options on the personal stuff like how the avatar looks,and the furniture you buy, and how you decorate the house. The fridge that you were allowed to buy did not even match anything in the kitchen. None of the furniture was appealling, and the wallpapers were downright ugly. I was hoping for alot better options. I think it had less than the first life quest.

Not as good as the original...
When this first came out, I bought it without playing it first. I loved the first one, and figured the sequel would be even better. It is different, lots of paths to explore, but truthfully, I was a little let down. It was fun, though, and I'd recommend it.

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!
