Virtual Families 2
Boring and lifeless
Boring and pointless game needs improving as too confusing about what to do next.

I waited so patiently through six or more generations for someone to actually want to work who made money - but these mini peeps became bigger pain in the rears than *real life!* I spent hours praising them, feeding them, entertaining them, buying them everything - the graphics are really cute! - and all for nothing.
I was traumatized every time they got old, sat up in bed and waved at me with their ghostly outline and so angry at the most recent generation that I just kept hitting them with the green glove when they constantly argued and I had to spend coins to adopt all my children; it was a miserable couple - how is that fun?
A progressive game of famiies that get happier would be rewarding, as would some interaction between the characters. The most mothering I ever saw was "showing baby the garden." After they're out of her arms, they cease to exist to the parents, and become your problem.
That's when I realized that this game is a soul-sucker. If I want to decorate I can do it in real life. If I want drama, and sickness and weak people...I can leave my front door.
It's strangely addicting and yet, there is NO payoff - only constant care and medicating and watching people get old and exhausted and turn gray headed in their early 50's!
I noticed I started dreading turning the game on wondering who else would be "a bit sick," or "weak," and that's when I realized the problem was mine, and I had the solution.

I just don't understand why this game is so slow, and there is no option to speed the game play up. I didn't even finish the trial for this very reason. Some good ideas in here, but at such a slow pace, I couldn't be bothered to see the storyline through. Very disappointed.

Is that it?
Where's the challenge? It seems all you have to do is earn money. You need it for everything. THATS ALL! Sure, you can watch your little people wander around and do cute things but, apart from watering the flowers and getting rid of the ants, there are no puzzles, no challenges and very little interaction. I've perservered with it in the hope that something would happen but nope, nothing. I even bought the carousel for something different but the kids can't play on it. I loved the Virtual Villagers games because there were challenges and puzzles at different levels and a real chance of losing it all and having to start again. This one just drags on and doesn't go anywhere. What a dissappointment.

Not worth the the candle
Waste of time, space and not least money. The ppl are behaving like they had no family or anything else: they make meals but still feel hungry and raid the fridge, ppl and pets can move laterally, if the ppl do not want to feel "happy" or even better -don't waste your energy; much as I enjoyed the first one, I find this edition lacking in consistency and not least stuff to discover = quest .. once they grow up .. bleh! This game needs a serious update or leave it alone and wait.

Worse game I think I've ever played!!
I was hoping to like this and have fun, but I didn't know what in the heck to do!! It doesn't give much help at all, couldn't build anything that I could see...I have absolutely nothing good to say about this game. Certainly a child couldn't understand it I'm sure,.
