Product Description

Product Description

The Sims is a strategic life-simulation computer game developed by Maxis and published by Electronic Arts. It was created by game designer Will Wright, also known for developing SimCity. It is a simulation of the daily activities of one or more virtual persons ("Sims") in a suburban household near SimCity.

Amazon.com

From Will Wright, the creator of SimCity, comes a strategy game that hits close to home. You are in charge of a neighborhood of Sims, and it is up to you to show them that they're living in your world now! Force them into a life of crime or help them live life in the fast lane. Build them a sprawling mansion or dump them into a dilapidated shack. Let them party like swinging singles or fall in love, get married, and raise a family. They can live out your wildest dreams or experience your worst nightmares. It is up to you to decide--their fate is in your hands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very adictive November 27, 2005
A Kid's Review
Format:Video Game
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I am 12 years old and I have had this game for about a month now. It is very fun and addictive. One thing I would like to point out, is that parents should not be worried by the rating saying T for teen and "mature sexual themes." These "mature sexual themes" do not exist. Unless they consider kissing as that, they don't have anything like that in it. You control your sims and help them make friends, get a job, etc.

When you first start out, you choose the last name for your sim, and the first name. Then you choose gender (male or female) then choose the head, clothing, and personality. Then you can right a biography about your sim, but you can just skip that. Then, you click done and you can then move them into a house or lot. You can choose an already built house, or buy an empty lot and build from scratch. After that, start living! you have to get your sims a job, and help them fulfill their needs: hunger, by feeding them, comfort, by letting them sit down in a chair or sofa or couch, hygiene, by telling them to take a bath or shower (don't worry, nudity is blurred out), bladder, by making them use the toilet (also blurred out), energy, by giving them coffee, expresso, or making them go to bed, social, by having them do something with another sim, fun, by having them do something fun such as playing on the computer, and finally room, this is not a major thing, but to improve the room rating, just keep it clean, and put up paintings and such. So, should you get this game? Absolutely! It's worth it, although it can get kind of repetitive after a while, unless you get expansion packs, but despite that, go ahead and get it! It's worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sims...how cool!! July 1, 2006
A Kid's Review
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The Sims is the most funnest game I've ever played! You get to create a family, build a house, get jobs, control your family, and decorate your place in just your style. After you've gotten used to this game, buy one of the expansion packs to add other options to your Sims' lifestyle. A great gift, and a great game. THIS IS A DEFINATE BUY!!

By Candice

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am 23 years old, I'm currently playing the Sims 3. I used to play the Sims 1 and 2. All I have to say is, if you are new to the Sims, this will be the best way to go before trying the newer versions of the Sims. This is an introduction of the Sims. And this game is so fun and addictive!!! I was 11 when I first played this and still to this day, the Sims never gets old or boring. Currently waiting on the Sims 4 to release next year, this game just get better and better every single day. You will truly love this game if you are the type who likes to create people, stories, and play as God(control your people/life). Give it a try, I promise you won't regret buying this game.

5.0 out of 5 stars The sims February 23, 2013
Format:Video Game|Verified Purchase
The sims is a classic by all means! If you have played The Sims 2 or 3 and liked it I highly suggest giving the first one in the series a try. Although it is considerably more difficult than the others and lacking somewhat in graphics I still highly recommend it. It is fairly cheap now, and what better time to get a copy. Now what are you waiting for? GO GET IT!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars This is my Favorite Game June 21, 2007
A Kid's Review
Format:Video Game
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This is a VERY good game. It's addictive and fun.

You get a sim, manage their life, get them married.. Just help them through life. Although you could just kill them off.

Ahem.

Although this is a good game, I am giving it four stars overall. Why? Because it freezes- atleast twice when I play it. I'm not sure if it's my computer or what. I only downloaded one object for it, and even when I deleted that it still froze. It may be my dad's loads of useless junk filling up the computer, but it still bugs me.

Other than that, it's awesome. I'm getting two expansion packs to add to the fun, too, and I recommend you to do the same- Because it does get boring after a while.
