    A fun little light strategy game. The gameplay consists of time management and economic strategy, as you have to be in the right places at the right times in order to buy the paintings needed to win, while also having to visit and manage your plantations and visit the emporiums routinely in order to make money. Extra features like profitable (but time-consuming) expeditions into the unknown, fake paintings up for auction, art classes that let you spot fakes, a stock market, and horse races you can bet on, make the game more engaging. The presentation is quaint and charming. Overall, the concept of the game isn't stellar, but it is well executed, resulting in a game that is fun to play, for as long as the limited concept and scope allow it. Full Review »

    While a 20s flapper might not normally sound like someone with gastro-intestinal problems, in this case I would say it's appropriate because this is nutella-esque excrement scraped onto some sunblest toast. Full Review »

    The Great Art Race is a light, simple, short, and casual strategy game. Once you develop a system for creating cash and being punctual to the auctions, it will be an almost effortless win even on the more advanced difficulty setting. There are some randomized events, but they will not effect the outcome very much. The graphics and presentation are not impressive at all, to say the least. There is very little animation, and minimal sound. It is fun for about two hours or so, keeping in mind there won't be very much of a replay value. Once you're done (and you'll be done quickly), there's not much to go back to. It somehow reminds me of a less fun Jones in the Fast Lane from the early 90s. I played for about 2 hours, and I plan on keeping it installed for the time being, just in case I feel like playing a quick "coffee break" game. Full Review »
