Technology Tell writes, "The Good Life promised me it was an open world, sandbox style tropical paradise simulator. By some definitions, it fulfilled that promise. It certainly had a world I could wander around in, and that world was modeled after the stereotypical “tropical paradise”. In many other ways, however, it completely failed at its promise. I’m not going to beat around the bush here. The Good Life is a bad game, and it’s not even the kind of bad where there’s a lot of entertaining things to say about it. It’s just boring."
