Nerds Review Life

Gamespot reviews one of the most underrated games of all time: Real Life!

The only problem is you’re relegated to playing as a human character, though the game does randomly choose one of several different races for you (which have little bearing on gameplay and mostly just affect appearances and your standing with certain factions).

The gameplay itself is extremely open-ended, though it’s structured in such a way that you’ll have a fairly clear path to follow when you’re just starting out. Real life features a great system whereby newbie players will automatically be guided along through the early levels by one or more “parent” characters who elect to take newbie characters under their wing. This is a great system, as these older, more-experienced characters reap their own benefits from doing a good job of guiding the newbie character along.

It’s also true that real life is constantly being refined. Some players argue that many of the numerous changes constantly being made are for the worse–for example, players running once-profitable tobacco companies, as well as the players who are addicted to using popular tobacco products, often complain that the tobacco business is being “nerfed” for no good reason. But either way, it’s good to know that players are able to actively improve certain features that require finer tuning. This keeps the developers free to focus on bigger issues.

Ultimately, if you take a step back and look at the big picture, you’ll see that real life is an impressive and exciting experience, despite its occasional and sometimes noticeable problems. It says a lot for real life that, even with these issues, it’s still very highly recommendable. Simply put, those missing out on real life are doing just that.
