Real Estate Empire 2 Review
Real Estate Empire 2 is a property trading game that is centered around profit. This game is the sequel to the older Real Estate Empire, but the elements of this game are new and improved. If you liked the original version of the game you will love this. Many aspects of the game remain the same, like the buying and selling homes, yet this version is more interesting, addicting, and complete.
Strategic Buying and Selling
Real Estate Empire 2 is a great simulation game for several reasons, the main being its intrigue. The idea of selling properties for a profit is interesting and the strategy surrounding the process is fascinating. You will need to make plans and execute them effectively in order to succeed. Strategies will often consist of taking an initial loss on some properties in an attempt to reap greater rewards later in the game. This element of strategy along with the ability to make fast money through intelligent and thought out business plans makes the game great, resulting in its intrigue.
Several Scenarios to Play
This game starts with an option to choose your scenario. At this point you get to decide where you want to sell real estate and to what degree—starting off small in the suburbs of New Jersey and then eventually making it to Manhattan, is one option. Each scenario offers around 30 levels. This large combination of options makes the game playable for many hours and re-playable if you do happen to beat the game and wish to start again.
Within each scenario and level is a list of objectives you need to complete in a given time period. The times range from about 12 to 24 months. In this time you need to buy as many properties as you can to build your total net worth.
More Income Opportunities
Once you buy a property you are given two options. This game, unlike the first, offers a rental feature that allows you to rent your homes out for the month. Renting will bring you a nice monthly salary and its quick paced, buy low and rent high nature, makes it a very fun feature. However, property renting can at times be frustrating due to poor tenants that require heavy maintenance. Use the renting feature to earn enough money to buy multiple properties.
The second option you have as a home owner is to sell your home. Upgrading and investing in your homes will increase the value, thus making selling your homes more lucrative. Buying a house at a low price, fixing it up, and then selling it at a higher price is a great way to make quick and easy money.
An Improvement Over the Original Game
As far as gameplay and enjoyability are concerned, Real Estate Empire 2 is easier to use and more fun than its predecessor. This version offers multiple difficulties, which the first version did not. Also, the buying and selling of properties is much easier and the offers you will receive are reasonable and fair, unlike the first game. The rental feature, which was not a part of the first, is also great and makes the game more lifelike. Your monthly salary is derived from your rent, rather than your job title like in the first game. This again adds to the realism and overall quality.
A Couple Downers
One element of the game that is lost in this version is the fluctuating housing market. Having a keen sense of when to buy and when to sell is not as crucial in this sequel. Also, another drawback which can lead to frustration is that your mortgage is due before you collect rent. This means you lose money before you earn it each month. If your money is tight and spread out over several houses this may lead to foreclosure, even though once you receive the rent you will be able to pay the mortgage.
Conclusion - A Real Estate Strategy Winner
Overall, Real Estate Empire 2's ease of use, rental features, and strategic elements make this a game you will want to play. The long and abundant levels will provide you with hours of enjoyment, and the lifelike trading elements will keep you intrigued. Whether you are a casual gamer looking for a fun simulation game or a knowledgeable real estate developer, this game is for you.
