This has the potential to be a great game. A nice blend of a business sim and well...the Sims. C'mon, what red-blooded American male hasn't dreamed of being Hef at least once in their life?

But it doesn't deliver. Bugs with the models, the AI, graphics...you name it. It's an entomologists dream. Two weeks after going gold there are still no patches for issues the players have been screaming about since day one.

Maybe someday I will be able to recommend this title, but certainly not now. Stay away.

You are looking for a more titillating Sims with a management component mixed in? Well, look elsewhere...

This is one boring game. It tried to steal a lot of ideas from The Sims, but they are all implemented badly. Wanna build a business relationship with a rock star? Just click the "business conversation" button often. Creating the magazine itself is boring too. It always happens exactly the same way. Photo shoots are boring pretty much right away. And as far as the sexy content goes... well, it ain't sexy.

If I were you, I'd pass on this one.

Ok let's face it. This game will mainly appeal to the teen-age crowd, for obvious reasons. But as far as game-play value, Playboy: The Mansion leaves a great deal to be desired.

Every "month" it's the same thing...host parties, get interviews from celebrities, take cover-shots, ect. It's all very repetative and bland.

I'm not the kind of person who quits playing a game after just a few days, but I found myself un-installing it only after a few hours of game-play.

For those who say you cannot compare Sims to Playboy: The Mansion, you are correct. Playboy: The Mansion does not even belong in the same leauge as The Sims.

If you have played any other type of sims game this one would seem a bit shallow. After a while you notice that the characters react the same way everytime a particular interaction is performed. For example; When Hef offers a gift he reaches behind himself to get it. The person whom he is interacting with always tries to look over his shoulder moving left & right as he does this. It might have been nice if the game design had a bit more randomness of action in it.

My Windows version of the game has some sort of glitch that appears every time you do a wardrobe change during a photoshoot. At first the digital model looks fine, but after you attempt a change of clothes, a digital cover appears on her head. It looks like someone took a rag and draped it over the digital model's head. I suspect the game code controlling the physics and movement of the model's hair is the problem. Hopefully the software makers can come up with a patch to repair this problem.

On the plus side, it is fun to run the magazine empire. This is probably the best part of the game. The extras are also nice. You have the option of giving all your playmates a boob job. This makes watching the models walk and dance around a lot of fun. Watch closely, you will see the model's arms pass right through her breasts as though they weren't even there!

If you are already playing Sims 2, this game will probably seem limited and repetitive. It doesn't have nearly the depth of character Sims 2 has. I suggest waiting until this game shows up on the discount rack.

This game is a lot of fun and is very entertaining. The bugs that plague the game, however, detract from the overall experience. Even after downloading the patch, I found that I had no music playing, the game freezes, people disappear and some items such as the pool floats seem to be caught in a loop. It is still a blast to be HEF though.

The playboy mansion is an okay game as far as what you do and how the plot is set up, but why do all of the characters sound garbled? I almost thought it was a south park game... jk In playboy manison, you are Hugh Hefner the creator and founder of the playboy enterprise. It's up to you to design fabulous magazine spreads, bring in the bacon, throw parties, and live the life basically. I agree with all of the other reviews in here as to this game getting to be boring after a while. But if you have nothing else to do for fun in the evening, this game can help pass the time. Buy the private party expansion pack if you get this game. Their is so much more stuff in it that you can do and try out.
