  1. Those who just love people simulations need to rush out and give this game a try.
  2. 65
    Technically flawed and painfully ugly in comparison to just about every other PS2 videogame, its distinct personality and interesting city-building techniques have a strange way of growing on you.
  3. It's extremely awkward. [Oct 2002, p.148]
  4. A charming game, as you’d expect from Natsume but one that won’t attract anyone new to such a bizarrely implemented concept.
  5. 60
    The game’s worth a visit for anyone whose ideal night of TV involves The Simpsons episode where they go to Japan followed by two Iron Chef episodes back-to-back. It is, however, potentially baffling to anyone else.

    Its very addictive however the graphics are poor for a playstation 2 game. Plus it repeating itself all the time gets tedious. I give it a 6 thought as once you start you can't put it down. Expand
