- Mad TV -

In Mad TV you play the part of a guy who one day sees a very attractive woman on tv and after you find out she works at a media company called Mad TV you tell yourself that you have to meet her. You go out to the building where Mad TV is located and find yourself in the office of the director who has just fired his editor but in a rash he immediately hires you in his stead. Now you can't let this opportunity go by and if you are able to keep the ratings high not only will the boss be happy but you might win over your dreamgirl.

Instead of a menu you have to actually walk from room to room inside the building and you have to decide which show to put on. Remember to find out what the audience wants to see and what the competing tv companies have on as well. Ofcourse the show won't pay for itself and you need to arrange advertising to be shown during the breaks to make a profit. Inside the building there are plenty of other companies some of which are even competitors but there are also other companies that don't have much to do with you at first but can become usefull later like the real estate agency so you can buy more space in the building.

Mad TV is a pretty original game as far as subject matter goes but in it's heart it still remains a business / strategy game. Running a tv company is no easy tasks as you'll have to make plenty of dicisions any of which can make or brake the company. If you ever thought you can do better than all those tv companies today give this game a shot.


Overal rating: 7/10
