I have never played the PC version that everyone says is great but when I played the Sims 2 on Playstation at a friends I liked it and decided to buy it.
Creating a sim is great
I think it is very addictive
Interacting with other sims is easy
I went on Freeplay for a break from my original sim and it is so fun creating a family. I created a family and chose a house for them and I realised that this house had no furniture in so you get the chance to choose what the house looks like. I even built and extra room like an extension and it was great.
NOT SO GOOD POINTS
There is not really any bad points but there is some not-so-good points as the title suggests.
The Wants are sort-of pointless.
Some of the Fears you can't really avoid.
When you, say, go on holiday, your sim always dies.
The game is so addictive, once you start your game, you can't stop.
If you buy this game and like it, from what I've read from other peoples reviews, buy the PC version, but if you have a Nintendo DS lite, or a Nintendo DS, dodn't buy Sims 2 or Sims 2 Pets for DS... their RUBBISH!
