This game doesn't have good graphics and is no where as good as sims 1/2/3 but if you enjoy designing things (such as a hotel) then you will love this game.
The main down fall for this game for me is what to do after you have made the hotel and start to gain money, there is nothing to do after although now they have added it so you can build outside which gives you something to aim for for a around an hour then the game is done.
However once you start to dig deeper, the gameplay is severely lacking.
The biggest problem is the games very binary nature. By that I mean everying is right or wrong, correct or not correct. It tells you to do something, or it'll keep telling you that you should. There are no shades of gray, and no chance to use one's own intelligence.
For example, feedback from customers is specific to the point of making the game paint by numbers. One of the complaints you'll get is there's no waste basket in reception. So you add one. There's no vending machine, so you add one. You just do what it says, with on real sense of employing intuition.
A bigger problem is the guests' expecations: they always want the same things. All of them want the same things, and it's a case of just plonking in items that they want. The trouble is, there's no variety in what they want. So I wanted to do different hotel rooms for different budgets. I did an expensive, everything-with-bells-and-whistles room. Then I did a budget room for the lowest price possible. But the budget travellers want everything from televisions to writing desks to snack baskets! Snack baskets in a £25 a night room?! So what's the point in even having different types of rooms if all you end up doing is making every type of room contain everything?
The game is also inflexible as to how you create rooms. Everything must be square/oblong... you can't go around corners with rooms. You can't have shared toilets on the floor, you have to have them in every restaurant etc. which is inefficent. It insists you place items in each room separately, so you can't place a door on the women's changing rooms and then the men's, because you have to create different doors! So you end up spending a lot of time clicking rather than building. Similarly moving or deleting objects requires clicking, with no readily available shortcuts. You can't even press a delete key to delete a selected object, which shows how labourous it can be.
To be honest, I can't really say there's any redeeming features about this game. Even if you like the more creative aspects of creating a building, it doesn't live up to the Sims. The business element fails, so what else is there? Well, nothing really I'm afraid to say. It feels the put a lot of time into creating objects for the rooms, and not much time on the rest of the game.
An absolute must for anyone who likes to control and build their Hotel Empire. DEFINITELY 5 stars.
