4.0 out of 5 stars Really 3.5 out of 5 Stars August 18, 2014
First off, this is simply a demo of the Create a Sim aspect of the game. There is no actual gameplay included (as in, no Build or Live Mode), but it does allow you to get a hands-on approach of making Sims and saving them to your personal library for when the game comes out, or you can upload them to the online Gallery to share with others.

You mold your Sims as if they are clay, clicking on highlighted areas with your mouse and then "pushing" and "pulling" them. This presentation is different from former entries of the series, as they gave you sliders with which to fine-tune your Sim's features. Honestly, the "molding" is pretty much the same thing, and I would have preferred the option to have an advanced mode with sliders to tweak areas.

When I first tried it out, the controls struck me as sluggish, and certain areas of the face felt difficult to manipulate. The range with which you can move a feature is quite limited right now, and it is extremely dependent on which preset templates you chose to begin with. Even though areas light up when you hover the mouse over them, it was difficult to deduce where the "hidden" sliders truly were, since the controls are still limited (you can't just grab and pull anywhere you want, you are still restricted in how you can move areas). The Sims are also more animated than ever, which looks promising for gameplay, but not a good thing when you are trying to adjust their body shape. At least they stay relatively still when altering their face.

As I gained experience with the demo, the controls felt a bit more intuitive, but there still is that sense of limitation. It's also very easy to make mistakes when dragging an area, so make good friends with that handy undo button.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good way to try before you buy August 17, 2014
By Kristi
I defiantly recommend getting this demo
it's a nice way of getting a taste of what the sims 4 is like
and it's free so if it doesn't work there is no loss! :D

As for what I can say about the demo itself it is really fun
it runs smoothly on a low end computer

it doesn't have the color wheel: If you were a big fan of this you may have to wait and cross your fingers that the modding community will come up with a color wheel mod

Lack of sliders:This is both a pro and con the good part about this is that you can just drag where you wan't something
the bad part is that you sometimes have to be in the exact position to drag it or you will be changing something you didn't want changed

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Creat-A-Sim Yet August 17, 2014
Verified Purchase
First, this is a demo of one tiny (but very important) of a very big and complicated game that isn't out yet. So, anything I say here can't be used to judge the final product, merely judge what this demo shows - something the other two reviewers of this don't do.

In the demo you can only create adult Sims. You're then able to use their new system to adjust their body shape and select traits for them. When picking a life aspiration you get a trait attached to it. By clicking on the sim's body with the hand you're able to view a popup menu with all of the clothing options. You can also choose skin color and muscle definition. There are also a few pre-set body types for you to select, so you can then adjust these to fit your image.

The clothing is much better organized, with shorts and pants in better tabs. This makes it so you don't go sliding through dozens and dozens of items looking for that one skirt you want. There are also tattoos already in the game.

To adjust the face and select hair styles and such merely click the face with the hand. The organization here is just as impressive as it was in the clothing. With different areas for different lengths of hair. Also, hats do not change the hair style you picked, and to reflect this they're in a separate tab.

I've played Sims 1-3 and I definitely think this is the best create-a-sim I've seen yet. We'll see what the rest of the game brings.

This is a free demo of the Create a Sim portion of the soon to be released Sims 4 game. As such, game play is intentionally limited, but starts to give you a feel for what the new game will be like. I found it good for someone like me who has played Sims, Sims 2, and Sims 3 and was eager to get a sneak peak of the newest addition.

This demo allows you to create male and female adult Sims (babies, children, teens, and elderly Sims cannot be made in this demo and toddlers, as I understand it, are not part of Sims 4 at this time). Overall, compared with Sims 3 the newest version of Create a Sim gives you much, much more control over designing your Sim. Gone are sliders. Instead, you sculpt your Sim like clay, pulling and pinching places on your Sim to adjust different parts of their appearance. I've made 11 Sims so far and it's clear that you have much more control over even the smallest details. It makes it easier to make a Sim to capture someone's likeness, or a range of completely distinct characters. At first the method of sculpting takes some getting used to, but the more I played around with it, the more I prefer it over the previous versions. A couple tips I figured out where to leave your sim bald and unclothed until you're happy with the Sim's face and body shape. Sure you can adjust with hair and clothes on, but removing them made it much, much easier to see the full impact of the changes I was making while I was still figuring out the new method of making Sims. It also helped to remember I can rotate the Sim and that sometimes, it's easier to sculpt from a side angle vs. the front or vice versa depending on what you are attempting to do.

As with the previous games, you can name your Sims and give them a goal and traits.
