To start off, I dont have this game, it's my sister's. But I've seen her play this game 24/7 non-stop. I really did not see a point to this game. Basically its an expansion pack to THe Sims 2 which allows your sims to create and manage their own business. However, after standing behind my sis and seeing how agonizing it was for her to make and maintain her business I decided it would be best that I didnt beg her to play it. In the end she gave up on her would be toy store and happily returned to getting her sims married, making babies, and finally divorcing the husband :( .
My advice is not to get this expansion pack but instead get Nightlife or University.
