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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A casual product review of Sims 4 by a simpleton 12 Sep 2014
By Andrcoo
Platform for Display:PC| Edition:Premium Edition|Verified Purchase
----------------
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.

-------------------
The game itself
-------------------
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.

Will keep this review quite short. I'm not the biggest fan of sims in general but I do enjoy playing these games. This latest release to be fair does lack a lot of features from previous versions such as pools, toddlers etc. But it also lacks some of the detail, for example when a sim goes to work, you cannot see where they work, they just walk into the road and disappear. There is no building that represents their place of work like in previous versions. Personally, I don't like the same height for teenagers and adults, preferred it when they had more various heights. I'm not a big fan of the loading screens and the worlds are much too small. Feels a bit like the locked down console versions of the Sims 3.

On the upside the quality of what is available, is pretty good. A lot of work has gone into creating a sim and less so the build mode. These areas have improved. I would say it takes a bit of time adjusting to this version from the Sims 3. It is in my opinion quite overpriced for what you get, I was expecting the book to be bigger. No surprise though that just after a few days the price has decreased by just over 17. I do hope they release updates and expansions in the future to improve the game. A lot of improvements can be made. Features were sacrificed in order to get the game out as quick as they could which is kind of a shame. However it is enjoyable to play if you are probably completely new to the sims and/or not expecting the full works from the game.

To summarise, it is enjoyable for casual gamers not expecting too much but dedicated Simmers will be disappointed. The quality of the content is quite high but lacking some of those traditional features.
