The majority of computer games released are so-so at best. There are a few that reign above them all as the best sim games. Then there are the ones that are, how do I put this gently... awful. You wonder how the game every made it to store shelves. Avoid the game listed below at all costs.
The original was bad and the sequel is even worse. The only way you'll enjoy this game is if you really (really) like redneck humor and racing on the same roads all the time. It's another value release, that offers no real value to anyone who wants to play a game for more than, oh, 3 minutes.
2. "Ford Racing 3"If you like unrealistic driving controls, unintelligent computer racers to race against, and bad music, than just maybe you'll like "Ford Racing 3." Starting out the game, gives you just a handful of cars and tracks; the rest must be unlocked. Trying to unlock the rest of the cars, to get to your favorite Ford, is about the only reason to play. The AI is unpredictable, and the racing is more of an arcade game style, than realistic.
After years of tycoon games, I have decided it may be time that we stop buying games with tycoon in the title. At the very least, developers could get creative with names. "Prison Tycoon" is another reason why we should start to avoid budget titles that have tycoon in the name. The interface, music, gameplay, graphics, and controls are all, well... Let me put it this way. If I was part of the development team, I'd never tell.
They should have stopped with the first version. None of the three versions of "Mall Tycoon" are worth your hard earned cash. The tutorials are pointless, there is little activity (as far as cars, buses, etc) around the mall, the stores all look the same, and like most other games on this list, dull.
"Playboy : The Mansion" was *this* close to being a good game. I imagine it's every guy's dream to be Hugh Hefner. What guy wouldn't want a dozen half naked girls following him around all day? "Playboy : The Mansion" provides just about that - images of naked virtual girls. Otherwise the game has no depth and is too easy. I honestly didn't expect anything more than that, I wish I had been wrong. The game could have been good.
Stronghold 2" puts you in the ruler's seat of a blossoming city during the Medieval time period. Your skills as a ruler are tested as you work through the levels. Despite the fact, that I love city building games and the Medieval time, I had a difficult time getting into the gameplay and caring about my towns. The graphical glitches happened too often and the objectives, I feel like I have done many times before in other games.
