Life Quest 2
Masterpiece in the Making
First off I have to thank one of the BFG tech's [Emily] for introducing me to this game. She was helping me with a problem I was having with a different game via email and at the bottom of her emails they mentioned how Life Quest 2: Metropoville was her most recent favorite game. I hadn't heard of this game so I downloaded the trial version. I LOVE THIS GAME. It's just what I've been looking for. I've always wanted a game that lets you decorate houses and this game has it. But you have to work jobs, stay healthy and travel to add things to your home. You also can buy clothes, get married and have kids. And you even get to have pets and color them any way you want. You can dye your hair, buy clothes, furniture, knick knacks and so on and you can go to college. All kinds of great things. There is one 'Con' I wish was different about the game and that would be that I wish I could move the furniture around to where I want it. And I wish I could decorate a garden. And have it where you can change your hairstyle in the middle of the game. Maybe the next sequel will have this. Otherwise... great game. I played it for 14 straight hours before I was able to finish it. I couldn't quit until I was done. And now I've started playing it again. I've also bought the first series and I'm really enjoying it too. What I love most about the games is that I dont have to click on pause while I'm playing it and watching my favorite tv shows. Nothing like getting a game that demands your attention or it will run out of time and make you lose. I refuse to buy those type of games anymore. When you have kids you dont want to have to be clicking on pause all of the time. Thanks for my 2 new favorite games.

We loved life quest the original and are just as pleased with life quest 2. Fun and has replay value as each time you play it you can pick different avenues to complete your quest.

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.

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.
