Fun until It Isn’t.

Dealer’s Life 2 is a very entertaining game with a very small amount of unique content; as a result, what starts as fun entertainment quickly evolves into sheer monotony, and by the time I had reached the later levels, I just wanted it to be over with.

A big part of why I felt this way is because the first 1-2 hour of the game is full of exciting finds, upgrades and discoveries; however, every hour after that gets progressively slower until even a huge find or fantastic deal is only a tiny fraction of the money needed to do anything worthwhile.

I remember the first time I found an item that sold for 20k profit; I felt like a king and immediately upgraded my character and store; when I “hit the jackpot” and sold an item for 1 million profit, I upgraded all of my stats repeatedly, hired better staff and upgraded my store 3-4 times.

However, by the time you get to mid-game, selling an item for even 10 million profit is next to worthless, with mid-game attribute points costing that much and more and shop upgrades being well north of 100 million dollars.


To make matters worse, many buyers still bring in terrible conditions, rare or lower items worth 10k or less, meaning I am forced to examine hundreds of worthless items per hour.

This is especially frustrating when you consider that my weekly rent and inventory limits require items that sell for 600-900k profit minimum if I am going to make rent and save towards future upgrades.

While there are breaks in the monotony, such as storage auctions and buying and selling at conventional auctions, players are limited to selling 1 item per week, drastically slowing down the money-making process.

If I had made Dealer’s Life 2, I would have allowed players to list every qualifying item at auction at the end of every week, ensuring that time between upgrades is a matter of minutes instead of being stuck at the same location grinding for several hours, only to be forced to do it all again at the next location.


Infinite NPCs.

Each potential customer has unique preferences, tolerances, finances, interests and personality, ensuring that negotiations are never stale.

From tight-fisted collectors who know what something is worth to clueless bystanders who would sell you the crown jewels for 80% off, players never know who is coming into their store next, which goes a long way towards keeping the game fresh, however, only when played in small doses.

Pop Culture References.

Dealer’s Life 2 is full to bursting with pop culture references, from off-brand movies such as Revengers (Avengers) and Shark Movie (Jaws) to “slightly off” celebrity names such as Patrick Steward and Marco Pol oh, the developers have found a way to avoid infringing copyright while being very amusing in the process, besides who doesn’t want to own a vintage Lintendo 64?



Haggling, bickering, or negotiating, no matter how you say it, the act of trying to get a better deal is a favourite pastime of many and being able to do so as often as you want with a diverse array of characters is a great activity for fans of the pastime, even if it does get old after a while.


Not every item you have invested your hard-earned money in will be legit, and even 3-star experts can occasionally fail to spot a fake until it is too late.

Upon finding out that priceless rug that belonged to Barrack O’rama is a fake and likely came from Walmart, players have two options, make it down as a replica, taking a huge loss in the process or attempt to pass it along at full price, risking heavy reputation damage every time they are caught doing so.


Sexual Content.

Some female characters are just a little “too sexy” for the genre and audience and border on being disrespectful, with massive breasts and ample cleavage on display; while this was undoubtedly done in fun, I feel sexualising women, while for the most part, no doing so to male characters sends a bad message.
