Music Simulator: Chart Wars 3
I just love the idea of me being the manager of a music label! There is much attention on details in the game and there are statistics on everything.

Experience: Chart Wars 3 is a game where you play the roll of a manager of a musical label. It was developed in 2004 by a company called Osiris Games. Although the idea is great the finished product isn't so good. It has some features like band and artist managing, singles, tours, gigs, ratings, albums and even picture packs that include pictures of all the artists! The only problem is that it lacks the randomness of the musical industry. For example you may encounter different bands with same singles on the first two positions on the charts because there aren't enough song names in the database. Also the interface is too slow, sometimes you'll have to wait a whole minute just to pass one day in the game. Despite all the bugs the gameplay is just astonishing! I could play for hours and hours and never get bored! The best thing about the game is that it's all FREE of charge! // 7

Extras: The only extra in the game is the database editor. If you ever get bored (which will be truly amazing) you can simply edit your bands, artists, records, tours, gigs, labels, or even countries and cities that are included! And even here there are some bugs. If you put your band's and your artist's abilities to maximum or just put nothing you'll get an runtime error and you will loose all the work that has not been saved. This is really annoying if you want to update the database fast. So far I haven't found mod's on the Internet (I don't think they even exist) so if you want to add some artists to the database you'll have to do it yourself. // 9

Overall Impression: I just love the idea of me being the manager of a music label! There is much attention on details in the game and there are statistics on everything. The gameplay is almost perfect but it lacks some final touches and some painfully boring work on updating the database! // 8
