||Aspiring hotel moguls or fans of The Sims might want to give Hotel Giant 2 a look. Developed by Nobilis and published by Southpeak Interactive, Hotel Giant 2 will let you build and manage the hotel of your dreams with a plethora of options and an intense amount of micro management. The subject matter is niche enough, but the tedium of constant management made this one tough to enjoy. I'm not a fan of The Sims either though, so if you are into games like this, your mileage may vary. Nobilis certainly gives you a lot to tinker around with anyway; let's take a closer look at Hotel Giant 2...Hotel Giant 2 installs in a snap and only requires 2GB of hard drive space. System requirements are very low, requiring Windows 98 and newer and just a 1.5Ghz CPU 512MB RAM. A 5 series GeForce or a 9 series Radeon will work, so even casual PC gamers should have no trouble netting these requirements. Inside the game, there are a variety of graphical options that alter the level of eye candy and detail to help suit the game to your system and preferences. Unfortunately, the maximum supported resolution is 1280x1024...When you're ready to take on the game itself, you have a few options, including the Campaign. Fifteen scenarios with increasingly difficult demands await you here. I won't claim to have played through them all so I can't tell you how long it will take to reach the end of the campaign. Suffice it to say that management-inclined players will have their hands full meeting the game's increasingly tougher challenges. If the campaign has you worn out or you just want a change of pace, try the Random Game option from the Main Menu. Here, you can customize a scenario for yourself including your starting city, what type of hotel structure you start in, the amount of cash you have to begin with, how much time you have, and what the end-game goals are (i.e., achieving a certain amount of the market share, having a certain level of skilled staff, etc). Of course, you don't have to select all of these settings yourself, you can simply click Randomize and jump right in...In conclusion, nothing about Hotel Giant 2 is outright bad, and in fact I was impressed with the variety of customization options and the plentiful details about the business Nobilis provided. On the other, more important hand, I found it boring and hard to stay interested in for anything more than brief spurts of play. These types of games rely on getting a player hooked and coming back for more, and it's not an easy formula to achieve. It's not that Hotel Giant 2 doesn't, or can't do that, but it was not able to with me.
