Hi Z3ALFISH, sorry to hear that the game wasn???t really to your tastes. When I first started playing I didn???t expect to be that impressed. However, Holy Potatoes! really hooked me. Even after writing the review it is a game that I still return to - I???m still desperate to win some of those end of year awards.
I think that as a business management sim it strikes just the right balance between approachability and complexity, with the smart presentation and humour being the icing on the cake.
Star ratings are always a contentious issue and I did swing between a four or five star verdict. However, at the end of the day, I think that the hours I spent playing and developing my business were deserving of the extra star.
Like Joe says, there is no accounting for taste ??? some folk even prefer French fries over chunky chips.
