1.0 out of 5 stars Stay away from it! 21 Sep 2014
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Premium Edition|Verified Purchase
Major, major disappointment.
If you like The Sims series, keep playing the SIms 3.
If you're new to the series, go and get Sims 3 with discount prices.

Sims 4 has just 2 better things over Sims 3: Slightly better graphics, and slightly better multitasking: They can now do the dishes and talk to other sim.

All the rest is much worst than Sims 3, basically because all the rest isn't there at all. The most common complains are Pools and toddlers. They just don't exist on Sims 4, but the list of missing things is so extense, that I can just say, avoid it!!
To make it worst, it keeps crashing all the time, so you will have to keep doing the things you've just done between the last save and the last crash, even after the first updates.

What an awfull experience. Stay away from it!
I'm going to try to get a refund. What a rip off!

I like this game a lot. It has had a lot of bad reviews off veteran sim players. I was quite sceptical before I received the game as to whether it would live up to the Sims 3. The reason I have given it a 4 star review and not 5 is because there are a few things that I don't like about it. First of all, while it does come with two worlds to play with, they are TINY compared to the size of the worlds in Sims 3. The Sims 3 had 125+ lots in each world, whereas in the Sims 4 they only have about 25 in each (obviously why they included two worlds in the base game). However, I can live with the small size of the worlds as it makes the performance of the game extremely smooth compared to the Sims 3 which lagged a lot. I had to use mods on the Sims 3 to remove bugs and make the game run smoother. I don't need this at all in the Sims 4.

EA and Maxis have reverted from a full open world (Sims 3) to a Sims 2 style (loading screens in between lots). The Sims 3 loading times were painfully slow, even with an SSD. The Sims 4 has loading screens quite a lot, however, they last no longer than 30 seconds for me which makes the actual playing of the game quite enjoyable. Each world has 5 neighbourhoods. Your sim can walk around the neighbourhoods, however, if you want to go to a lot, it has a loading screen which isn't so bad. It still retains, for me personally, an essence of the Sims 3 as you can get lots of sims walking through the neighbourhood, past your house etc. which means you're not confined to the house like in Sims 2 with few sims walking past.

The neighbourhoods are very detailed, improving on the Sims 3 neighbourhoods for me personally.

Utter Garbage. The create a sim is so fiddly its hardly worth the effort. In build mode its impossible to change angle while building(although you can rotate). The room insert mode is a joke, you cant rotate the rooms in the process. Not even bothered to play the game. Don't buy this, the content is sparse to say the least. It lacks the ease of colouring things like clothes, furniture, hair, pretty much everything, you are stuck with a few presets.

I am at a loss to see any improvement.

Don't waste you rmoney

2.0 out of 5 stars This should have been The Sims 3 11 Sep 2014
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Premium Edition|Verified Purchase
This should have been The Sims 3. It really reminds me of the Sims 2. I`ve been playing Sims for about 14 years now. I have every single expansion pack, world or anything that ever came out.
I love the new create a sim. Much better than the one from Sims 3. But: i never really liked customizing my clothes and match colours. If that`s what you like to do, be ready for a huge let down... Very limited choices of hair style, clothes, colours, everything really...
I`m having a hard time adjusting to the new controls of the game and actually feel a bit trapped in my lot... However, it`s really not that bad... This should have been Sims 3, because it feels like the Sims 2, only better... But if you love Sims 3... You are going to hate this game... What a huge let down...

EA PRIVACY POLICY ON REFUNDS

You may return EA full game digital downloads (PC/Mac) purchased on Origin for a full refund within 24 hours after you first launch the game, within seven days from your date of purchase or within seven days from the game's release date if you pre-ordered, whichever comes first. This is in addition to your standard return or refund rights

So I wanted to get a refund :) After 2 days.. no refund.

I want to point out a key point 'whichever comes first' in the policy. Which means if you want your TS4 to be refunded you shouldn't have launched it at all in your pc otherwise you can only within 24 hrs.

Or so I was told. Because as a not 1st language English speaker missed that "whichever comes first" point or not quite understood its meaning.

So I am forced to remove my good review. It is a good beta/base game for more expansions to come and make it a game . It's a beta and I would avoid it for now or maybe avoid EA forever.

1.0 out of 5 stars So disappointed... 7 Sep 2014
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Premium Edition|Verified Purchase
I would literally give this no stars purely for the fact that EA has clearly misold their product. Little did I know that upon opening my game and trying to install I would need constant internet connection. Not only that but I need internet connection to play every time. EA seems to have forgotten it's roots and tried to con it's players. The code you are given will last as long as EA wants it too it even said so on the box. I will undoubtably be sending back this overpriced shambles of a game and sticking to the sims 3. I never believed when people said that EA was just a money-grabbing company but now I do. I am bitterly disappointed and utterly disgusted with EA for having the balls to sell this 'product' to a nation of devoted fans. Hard-core simmers will share my view.
