Top Customer Reviews
--You can have babies, but your sims cannot interact with them (like feeding/playing with them with toys etc like in sims 3) the most you can do is hold them over their bassinet.
--There are no toddlers, just POOF, your sim is a teenager who looks exactly like an adult.
--Teens, Young Adults, Adults, Eldery all have almost the same exactly body. There's hardly any differentiation in between them, so it's very hard to tell them apart unless you zoom in and try to find the wrinkles.
--No color customization. Every shirt, pants, accessory item come with their own color sets and that;s it. There is no changing the color if you don't like all the neon greens and purples.
--No hair customization for color. You get a "set" of 12-ish colors to choose from and it's a flat color. no highlights, no tips, no roots.
--When your sim goes to work you have NOTHING to do. You can't follow them to work, and at the most you can change how hard they work. That's it. You have to stay put until they get home.
--You have more options of job choices in Sims 2. That's just sad.Read more ›
After playing this game over the last couple of days, however, I now know that you were all right.
This game is an insult to The Sims. This game is an abomination.
If you are new to The Sims games, you may actually enjoy playing this. That is because, quite simply, you are blissfully unaware of the gloriousness of The Sims 3. As for the rest of us - I think a more adequate title would have been "The Sims: Back to Basics."
For those of you who condone this stripped-down version of The Sims – shame on you. I have seen numerous commenters argue that all we have to do is “wait for the expansion packs.” You people are the reason why companies like EA succeed. They have presented to us, after five years, a $60 letdown of epic proportions, and you are arguing that we should spend more just to get basic things.
As for the pros, of course there are some. Create A Sim will get your hopes up from the beginning. The ability to stretch and pull your sims’ bodies is a great addition. The characters do look quite cartoony, but I did not find that to be offensive. The emotions system is a good idea, although I do think that some aspects of it are ridiculous (such as being able to take three different kinds of showers to completely set your sims’ moods).
There are many, many things missing from this game, but they have, for the most part, been listed in other reviews. One thing I have not seen complaints about are the sims’ pregnancies. I found it to be really boring. Your sim can hardly care any less that she is pregnant, nor can the person who got her pregnant.Read more ›
What saddens me is the tactics EA uses on Simmers. It's very unfair how they price gauge us for the game with limited content and then charge us extra piece by piece for content. It's pure greed if you ask me. However, it's stupid of me to keep buying the content only because I love the games so much. So that is where EA wins and I lose.
For those who are waiting for an expansion pack combo, I say wait because it's a waste of money.
I've played the Sims since I bought the Sims 1 Deluxe Edition back in 2003, when I was 8 years old, and I fell in love. What attracted me was that this was a life simulation game, something virtually unheard of at the time, and in the Sims 1, you can tell the designers tried to make it fairly realistic and fun, but due to technical limitations at the time, they couldn't make a completely realistic life simulator game. Then 2004 rolls around and the Sims 2 is released. Here, the Sims are in full 3-D this time and live in a bigger world, with actual places to go in their neighborhood and more realistic interactions between Sims. More items were added as well. In 2009, the Sims 3 comes out and it ditched loading screens in favor of an open world, one of the best improvements in the Sims series to date, making the Sims seem more life-like then ever before. That also opened up room for a LOT of new features to be added. I believe, the Sims 3 has had more features than any Sims game to date. But, once again, due to technical limitations at the time, the Sims 3 had a couple of things missing (like the inability to go into half of the community lot buildings). So now it's 2014, computers are faster than ever before, capable of running intense games, and since the Sims 3 series has grown rather dated, naturally it was time for a refresh.Read more ›
