Not similar to previous renditions
I am so disappointed in this latest installment of the Be Rich game series.
It is very unlike the previous renditions, and most of all it takes in/steals too many components from other games.
I preferred the simpleness of the previous games where it was 2 dimensional and not 3 D with clicking to build faster.
The challenge is lessened greatly.
I am disappointed since I purchased this game without doing the demo since I enjoy the previous two games so much (have played both more than 6 times each). But now I am out of the series.

Large Whack-A-Mole Game...
I own Be Rich and Be Richer. - and I loved them! I read the reviews for Be Richest, and decided to do a trial before buying. I am thankful I did.
I couldn't imagine the third installment would be so drastically different and decidedly awful - but it is.
You will spend most of your time clicking the mouse button furiously to build things in time, exterminating rats, yetis and the like - or miss collecting the rent on that house.
No matter how hard you try you CANNOT please the residents. They want a store? Fine. Build one. Upgrade it to the max - it doesn't matter - the neighbors are still demanding a store. I built THREE stores. I RINGED the house asking for a store with (you guessed it!) four grocery stores. Literally touching the property of the house in question on all four sides with a store, and it made no difference.
There is no strategy with this game; no planning. Just whack down the problems as fast as you can, and pray you have time to build whatever your residents are demanding in the meantime. (Which will also require insane clicking if you'd like it built before the two or three days it takes to build itself)
Carpal Tunnel is guaranteed with this game if you persist in it.

I enjoy the first 2 games in this series, and play them over and over. However, this game had way, way, way too much repeated clicking to kill off the "bad guys". My mouse finger was wore out. I purchased the game, completed it...then deleted it.
I never wanted to play this game again.

I loved the first two games...not this one! It was more as if I was playing Build a Lot. Also, there is no Sandbox version! It was very disappointing...sorry I bought it! :-(

Don't, just DON'T!
When I read the other reviews, I thought, the game couldn't be as bad as they described it, but it is.
I really liked "Be Rich!" and its sequel, so I wanted to give it a chance and bought it. It is one of the few games I quit playing.
I really like playing TM-games, and of course, they usually require a lot of fast clicking, but this is just too much. After half an hour, your arm really starts to hurt.
Also, when I buy a nice little TM-Building game such as this,, I'm not looking for a game where to win it, I'll have to kick someone in the face as often and as quickly as possible.
I also was appalled by the use of racial stereotypes.
