Anybody played "Virtual Resort - Spring Break" and likes it?
I played the demo, which has only a short and easy mission. Gameplay doesn't seem to be very deep and challenging (just building a few structures and managing some staff), but the atmo, graphics and animations are nice.
Oh yes! I have it and I mostly enjoyed it.
It was the big competition for the Paradise Island
add-on to Tropico
The big problem (at least for me) is that it consists of one (and only one) campaign style progression from resort to resort. Beating the requirements get harder from level to level; and I could not beat several of the top levels. The international comments on the discussion board indicated that most players did not have my problems, and further that one "run-through" wore the game out.
However, if you can get it at a cheap, remainder level price, it is worth playing. The depth of play does go well beyond what you describe for the demo.
There is the "building" where you can stage a wet T-shirt
contest. If you market the correct brand of beer, there will be lots of couples rolling on the ground having s*x.
I wished that the "sandbox mode" had been constructed differently.
Try it, you'll like it.
There is another thread - on the "Arena" board.
