Game Review: The Sims Social on Facebook
This game had a similar feel to it as margaritaville. It is a free to play browser game so I didn't have to purchase or download anything. At first they give you a short tutorial that goes over the basic functions in the game. I still didn't understand what all these items were popping up whenever I did something, but I just clicked them to pick them up anyway. The gameplay is pretty basic and actions only require a few clicks. I had a little trouble navigating around the map and would prefer to use the keyboard rather than the mouse to scroll around. After about 20 minutes of playing I ran out of energy and it seems the only way to get more energy is to wait a certain amount of time or to purchase it using real life currency. I am not a fan of games where you have to pay to perform actions like some sort of toll booth and I do not want to wait to play a game. It is sad that companies resort to this in order to make money. Overall I like the idea of being able to create your dream character and live in a fantasy that you create yourself. I personally would like to have some super powers if I were to live in a fantasy world.
