I would NOT recommend this game. It's not worth the money. The characters take too long to accomplish anything.
I liked the idea of it, but everything is just so boring! You need A LOT of patience. Like day to day patience.
I tried to play this game but I can't even play it for ten minutes with giving up. The time runs with real life. You don't want to play a real life, you want fun and other things! It has no challenge at all, except the challenge with how slow it is. I have no idea how this game got such good views. It's so horrible! The only thing I like is the drawn art and the house. The characters are just plain and you can't even customize them.

Way too slow
I have even walked away and watched television for a while when I come back they haven't done anything and make money so slowly you can't even buy them anything. I even tried the second one, it is just as bad.

Way too slow
I might enjoy it if it moved faster, but it is as entertaining as watching paint dry.

Moved way too slow for me. Kind of a cheap version of The Sims.

i hated this game
I thought this game was simular to virtual game but it is not
with the virtual game the game stops when you do not this one if you don't interact with almost hourly the creatures will sicken and or die on you. this happened to me six times before i removed the games completely from my computer and i am glad i didn't have to pay for the game just wish i hadn't used my free game for it.

Slow and dated
Well, there's certainly no room in this game for alternative family structures. That's the first big minus. Secondly, could the people walk around any more slowly? And as for a "game" that involves cleaning up trash and checking emails.... uh... that's not a game: it's real life chores!!

Boring, boring, boring
I hate this kind of game. Would be better if you could speed up game play.

Real life drudgery is more fun than this game
I never review games based on the demo, but this game is so awful, I could only stand half an hour of it. I thought I would try it based on the positive reviews; those reviewers must be some of the most patient gamers in the world. All my "virtual person" did was poke around at a snail's pace and pick up trash, which took her 10 times longer than a real person. She also sat staring at her computer "working" and reading emails. That's right, you're staring at your computer watching your little people staring at their computer. I gave up on the game when, after my person got married, the game tried to force me to have them have a baby so that they would be "happier." Hello, I had purposefully chosen two characters who did NOT want to have children, so having babies would NOT make them happier! If you like watching paint dry or your toenails grow, this is the game for you. For an interesting game that is actually fun, look elsewhere.
