i thought that this was a good game to play, it was fairly inexpensive and you get to make a living off your own store, that you either get to run, or work at, instead of sending your sim away for the day then to come back with a pay check... you actually earned the money that you recieve. I think that some things are really annoying though, because you end up spending much more on your employees and such, and barly make any money at all cause no one will buy your items if they are too expensive, so you have to have another job inorder to make enough to live. And the days go by so fast, you barely have any time to run the store, in between your sims other needs such as hunger and hygene etc.. Also, the customers get mad at really stupid things and end up never coming back and give your store a bad reputation. When i was playing, one of my lawn decorations (a flamingo) was tipped over, and they kept going into histerics about that, or if your trash is full they get really annoyed.

this also is very entertaining though because you are able to run a restaurant, a salon/hair dresser place, an entertainment spot, and pretty much any type of store you want. you can sell anything that is available in the buy mode. this expantion pack also comes with a lot of new objects, clothing, and hair styles, which are fun to use, such as costumes they can wear, a lot of shelving to put goods on, etc.

over all i think that this game was fun, being able to run your own business, but there were a few things that could be better.

This EP adds more options to the Sims2 than the others so far (not including Pets, which came after OFB). Player can create almost any business they can imagine. There are many challenges and rewards when running a Sims businness, as well as humorous things that can go wrong. In University, once a player figures out how to get a student through college, there's only so much left to do. OFB, on the other hand, offers virtually endless possibilities. I plan to get Pets, but will continue to play OFB, maybe even incorporating pets into some businesses.

My review has nothing to do with the game itself, since I never got a chance to play it. Just wanted to let the less computer-savvy people know that this game doesn't run on newer versions of Mac computers. The new MacBooks use Lion as their operating system, and apparently you can't install these games with Lion because "PowerPC applications are no longer supported." Basically what I got out of my research is that Apple used to use a program called Rosetta, which made it possible for the older software to work with an intel processor, but Apple dropped that with newer operating systems. Maybe this is obvious to some people, but I didn't know, so I thought I'd mention it. As far as I know, the base Sims 2 game, Seasons, and Pets are the only Sims 2 games that will work.

I find it difficult to run a business and also manage my home, but if you have single sims, or are just tired of being home everyday, you would probably find business ownership fun! If you really want to stay home, you can open a home business, but it's kind of annoying to have strangers popping in when you really need a shower and the baby just barfed everywhere. My sims are very domesticated;-) However, I have opened a flower shop, a day spa, and a home food service business, and have found them fun to operate:-)

As always the Sims games are super fun! I now own Sims 3 but I still have a place in my heart for Sims 2 as it seems to me a bit easier to play and has a lot less glitches and loads a lot faster. The Open for Business expansion is great, own a business, run and build your own restaurant or bar - it's loads of fun!

Now your Sims can run their own business. The Sims 2 open for business is a great expansion pack for the Sims 2 game. It adds new objects and interactions to the game that were not their previously. The people at Aspyr did an excellent job of converting it over for the Macintosh system. If you would like to try your hand at owning and running a business in the Sims 2 universe, then this is a great expansion pack to consider.

If you have the opportunity, get all the expansion packs you can. There is lots of custom fan made content that is created out on the internet and some of that content is expansion pack specific. As long as Aspyr keeps doing a great job of bring games to the Macintosh system, I'll keep buying.

It's a little harder to get going in Open for Business than I expected. I own Sims and several expansions and I didn't feel this one was as intuitive as the others to get started. Once I got going, it became easier. It seems to take a while to earn badges and I wasn't entirely sure at first how to earn them, but again, once I got going it wasn't too bad. Remember that if you open a business on your home lot, LOCK the house doors so that customers are not coming in whenever they please (very annoying). Also remember to buy an Open/Closed sign or people will always be coming over. In my neighborhood with 10 families, I only have 1 with a home business. It's taken time to figure it out, but it's working out. I wish there were a few more things I could do with the business, but this is a neat dimension to add to the Sims.
