Overview

The play of the game involves developing and managing a hotel. The user starts with a pre-made building to which they add rooms, place useful and decorative objects in the rooms, and set up hotel details such as advertising. Once this has happened, the user opens up the hotel to the public and starts to run it as if it were a real business. It is similar to the "Tycoon" style of game (Railroad Tycoon, RollerCoaster Tycoon, Zoo Tycoon, etc.), in which the player creates a system or establishment and then runs it.[1] Hotel Giant 2 offers improved graphics, more features and a new campaign.

Versions

There are currently three versions of Hotel Giant. These are:

  • Hotel Giant, released 14th May 2002
  • Hotel Giant 2, released in UK on 21st November 2008[2]
  • Hotel Giant DS

Reception

The game received a fairly poor reception, with a Metacritic average of 54%. D+PAD said that any pros were "outweighed by some of the cons, most notably the repetitive and the non-engaging nature of the gameplay."[3] IT Reviews commented that the game "wasn't much fun" and you'd get "more amusement with an old, second hand copy of Sim Tower".[4]
