Sims with a lot more realism and faster gameplay,
This review is from: The Sims 2 (PC CD) (Video Game)
A long time waiting was worth it more than expected. Even as I'm playing it on an old P3 600. 100 bus speed and 512 meg memory. I found I could still play, just slow on a few areas like face building and the house build mode. But playing in the house no problem. So all those who still have similar systems would still enjoy the game.
The plus to the game is the fact your not waiting for things to happen as the game gives more interests for the sims like bonuses for making new friends and faster at building up a friendship. Even the details on how long you've known them, the sims aging, the waiting for a baby and small things like walking about with the phone and just putting it down when finnished sometimes on the floor. There are hundreds of extras. I played for an hour and my sim got so close to getting married.
I'm glad I got my copy. I just feel that I'll never go back to the original that I spent on all the upgrades for. The 7 days a week and days off work help a lot. The AI in your sim means your not repeatingly feeding and washing before work. You can be friends with the paperboy and other NPC's.
There are hundreds of things I can't say in 1,000 words. This is worth more than what it's original game. All I can say is if your into a more interactive game to sims then sims 2 is for you.
