Executive Suite is an excellent (and perhaps the only) simulation of office life. Your goal is a typical white-collar one: climb up the corporate ladder to become CEO. What sets this game apart from other business sims is the fact that it focuses entirely on office politics and ethical choices that people routinely face in real life.

The game presents you with situations or problems which you must resolve by choosing among multiple choices. For instance: you see a competitor inadvertently drop a confidential folder that contains their top-secret product development plan. Would you kindly return it to them, try to sell the information, or give it to your boss? As in real life, the "solutions" in these situations are far from obvious, and often it is a contest between your conscience and your drive for success. Also as in real life, you will find that morally questionable behavior often will get you farther than the do-gooder's attitude. After a series of multiple-choice events, the game evaluates your "performance" and offers you a chance to advance in your career. If your new job application is accepted, you will be shown your salary and various perks, and will then have to deal with tougher situations commensurate with higher responsibility.

Overall, Executive Suite is a fun, highly original, arguably controversial game that will either help hone your skills at corporate management or discourage you from entering the trade altogether. Thumbs up!
