Fun does not cover it....,
This review is from: The Sims (PC CD) (Video Game)
Not many would think of the Sims as a strategy game--maybe it is just a game to muck around on, running or ruining peoples' lives.
However, there is a strategic element to helping your Sims bring in the right money to run their household successfully, make friends and advance in the job ladder.
The game is fun for all ages; you create a Sim, or a family of Sims, move them into a house and decorate. Then the game seems to take over your life; keeping the family safe from fire, keeping them happy, answering the telephone when it rings in case it is a reward....
However, some material in the game may be inappropriate for children; especially when the game is combined with Hot Date (one of the many expansion packs). Some of it is slightly sexually explicit.
I would definitely recommend this game as it is addictively fun, and a great distraction!
