Product Description

The Sims 4 is the only game where new Sims with unique personalities open up deep, rich, and sometimes weird possibilities in the stories you create. For the first time, it's not about what they are, it's about who they are, and they come to life through brand new creative tools that are powerful, tactile, and easy to use. Also, brand new to The Sims 4, players can share their creations with other players directly in the game with the all-new Gallery. The result is a stimulating new gameplay experience that powers a new era for The Sims.

Note: The disk in the box will not work with a MAC computer, as it's a PC only disk. In effect to get the MAC version of the game one must purchase the PC version, and then redeem that code online and download the MAC version.

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 20 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. The advantage of having smaller worlds is that you can live in one but travel between them in game, so your sim can know people from both, use the lots on both etc. (a bit like travelling downtown in Sims 1 and 2).

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.

What you get

Packaging and Installation:
The premium edition of the Sims 4 come in a very nice packaging containing a DVD case with the game on 2 disks, the Creator's Guide hardcover book and a laminated install instruction sheet that also holds your Registration/CD key.

The system requirements are surprisingly very low (especially in comparison to Sims 3), and you can probably run the game on a average/low end desktop and most laptops without worry. (But you might want a decent cooling table so your laptop wont get to hot from long sessions of playing.)

The install instructions are very straight forward, you insert Disk 1 to start the Origin client installation (If you don't have it already that is like me.), once installed it will automatically update and ask for you to sign in, enter your Registration/CD key and then proceed to install the game from disk 1 and 2.
Installing the game took about 12 minutes, and a additional 5minutes of downloading + installing patches. (This varies depending on your download speed.) The game itself can conveniently be launched without the disks once installed on your computer.

The Creator's Guide is very well printed and have nice art and tips about making sims, and hosues, but is a tad short.
So it is a nice novelty item and way to keep yourself occupied as you install the game.

Upon starting up he game you will be greeted with a animated pop-up telling you what extra content you unlocked in the premium edition, as well as what other things you earned by having the Sims 3 base game and expansions registered to your account.

I loved all three of the Sims so far I was a little shocked at how much was missing from Sims 4. The graphics are much much better and it's easier to know what to do with your Sims due to their mood, the build mode for buildings and Sims are a lot more in-depth and easier to use. There is a lot missing but it is just a base game so...
The one thing that does annoy me about the game is that kids now go from baby to child, missing out the whole toddler stage completely, I'd rather of had the toddler and missed out the baby stage but that is just my opinion.

Sims 4 is very basic as far as 'Stuff' goes but as I have said before it is a base game so it will have more added to it.

The Sims 4 combines revolutionary Sims with powerful creative tools and all-new emotion-based gameplay, to reinvent The Sims experience.

Built on the foundation of brand new technologies that Maxis calls SmartSim, The Sims 4 is the most intelligent, relatable and personal life simulation ever. For the first time, player choice shapes not just a single moment, but the entire life journey of the Sims.

Transitioning from The Sims 3 to The Sims 4 is a little rough. The Sims 4 seems barren of content and features by comparison, especially with regard to the severely limited scope of the world and frequent (but much shorter) loading screens and noticeable absence of toddlers, pools, and cars. It’s not so much that Maxis didn’t recreate all the same features, but rather that there aren’t enough cool new things to replace what’s missing. Yet The Sims 4 does succeed in being a deep and complex game when it comes to Sim interactions, with lots of entertaining emotional potential. The emotions system and its contextual actions are really strong and added to my investment in my Sims as well as my enjoyment from watching ridiculousness unfold. Plus, excellent building tools make architecture more fun than ever. Overall, it’s a good start to what may eventually be expanded into a great Sims game, but it’s not there yet.
