Nah, this is an overhyped game building on top of The Sims popularity. But this game certainly does not offer a world we can relate nor a social aspect from Ths Sims. Most annoyingly they put Sim City away for this game, now we have to buy a city building game
The main concern I have for this game is that each stage is basically a different game. Instead of combining the elements from different games, it just use them in different stages. I don't think it will provide a seemless gaming experience. Nevertheless, it
will sell like crazy due to its hype and unique game type.
this goes way back to his early games work, almost not a game --
but I think it might be very interesting in it's own way.
