Good but needs improvement

With the name Sims attached it should be automatically accepted as a great game since this company has such a wonderful reputation. I am a huge rpg addict and have literally been trying every dungeon crawling game that I can find, when I saw this one I was thrilled.
Unfortunately, I think it was released too soon because it has several problems.
First - it is a great deal of fun and there is certainly no shortage of monsters to fight. The graphics on the main screen are incredibly simplistic, but serve their purpose - you can zoom in to see your surroundings so that is cool. The review above states that the goal is to clear the 8th level???? I am on level 27 right now and still going strong so what exactly is the goal of the game except to kill and get stronger. One cool thing is that if you die you can just continue right where you left off so you dont lose anything for trying every fight that comes your way. You earn loot but you can only hold one thing at a time!!! This is a pathetic and very lazy system on the creators part - I have never seen a game that didnt at least have a small bag for loot. Here you get cool items like enchanted rings of protection, but you cannot keep them unless you refuse everything else you get meanwhile, when you pick up so much as a potion the item is gone for good.
Note to developers - please add merchants, loot bags, and gold to be used for the proper purposes. These are standard features in a real rpg game. Also, could you please explain the building feature? It is only available during a fight yet not once has this helped me win a fight or even affect a foe so what is the purpose of this feature? Why do we have to pay for our magical defense spells with gold? All other games use a mana bar yet your set up has us pay for magical attacks with large sums of gold - please please change these things and add some differences to the levels - they are quite similar and even though I keep going it is because I am wondering how many levels have been built :)
All in all a good game - lots of fun - will make you wonder where all the time has gone - didnt I just turn this game on?? 10 levels and 2 hours later :) LOL - spend the $$ if you love rpg's and dungeon crawling with monster slaying.
