Amazon.co.uk Review

The bestselling PC game of all time is finally making its console debut: The Sims allows console gamers to create and control their own little computer people with new level-based gameplay and swankier 3-D graphics.

Many would have assumed that The Sims could never work on a console, but one look at this version proves them wrong. In fact, with the temptation to fall back on a mountain of confusing mouse-operated icons and online patches removed, this could well be the definitive version. For starters, the graphics now look much better than before, being in full 3-D instead of just isometric 2-D. This not only looks better but also allows you to zoom in and out on the action and feels a lot less sterile than the original. Things are still as customisable as ever too, especially via the Create-a-Sim option.

Perhaps the biggest change to how the game plays on consoles is in the new level-based missions. The PC original had no real goal; you just designed a family and let them get on with it, interfering with their virtual life as much or as little as you wanted. The console version adds some goals and rewards to the gameplay, which should help to attract the more attention-deficient among console owners. There's even a rather odd two-player mode, which, even if it seems a little pointless, is yet more proof that EA are really trying to make this a proper worthwhile console experience and not just the cheap cash-in many would've expected. --David Jenkins

The Sims is a great game and is, i feel much better than the pc add-ons and original. And if you are looking to buy the game i wouldn't buy the PRIMA official stragety guide, it's no help, at all. If you need a couple of cheats to start you off just look at the bottom of the review. If you don't own it, ti is a very good game with alot more extras than the pc. For example, multiplayer, what more could you ask for! But to unlock multiplayer mode you have to do the following or look at the bottom of this review. Start a new game on career mode, get used to the controls then just do the tasks to unlock future things, i.e mulitplayer. Another great thing is you can do free will, do whatever you want, or, career mode and earn your money help out your friends, basically do everyday tasks. The only bad thing is that the pc has a few add-ons which enables more items. Although the ps2 does have quite alot. And one of the best things on the game is the outstanding graphics! I mean it might not be final fantasy 10 but compared to the pc version, WOWZA! I love this game it is VERY GOOD.
Happy Living!

I am not a person who plays computer games. I do not own a playstation. But, my husband does, and enjoys all those dull golf, cricket & rugby playstation games that would send the average person to sleep due to the tedium of them. His attempts to entice me into playing them with him, or (hell of all hells) watch him playing them, failed miserably. In an attempt to stop me sneering condescendingly at him every time he turned his playstation on, he bought me a game called "The Sims", so that we could be joined together in our appreciation of the mighty games machine. Big mistake. I just adore this game! My favourite toy as a child was my dolls house, and this is a delightful 21st century version of it (without the dodgy oversize television made out of a matchbox)that invites you to make up any story regarding the characters that you like and oversee all of the mundane liitle duties they need to do. Your imagination is only hampered by the boundaries that the game has set so that your little Sim friend has a chance at a better life with a high powered job & more money. Not only do you get to mould your little creation as you please, you can mould their environment as well. The building part of the game is a joy to those who enjoyed lego well into their teens. If your Sim is becoming dull or annoying, build them a house with a myriad of corridors that they have no choice but to follow if they want to go the toilet, or remove all the doors once they are inside & watch their frustration as they try to leave & go to work.Ha ha, fun stuff for the easily amused. Yes, this great game brings out the inner child in me, and my poor husband now wishes that he had never bought it for me. He has to book in time now to be able to use his own playstation. Oh well, at least I'm not controlling HIS life anymore.

The Sims is one of the best-selling games on the PC. Rightly so, in my eyes. Now they bring it to the consoles.
The game is mainly split into two modes, the first is the open-ended Sims we all know and love, and then there is the new Get A Life mode.
Normal Sims on this one is, to be honest, fairly rubbish. Your X-files yellow beam is nothing compared to the ease of holding the mouse, and new abodes can take ages to make. There are fewer objects, and many have to be unlocked.
Then there's get A Life mode. This is more realistic, and works better than the Play The Sims mode. Simply put, you are given goals to accomplish in order to move up to a new property. These goals can range from a promotion to throwing a huge party. It works well, but again PC veterans will loathe the controls after a few minutes.
Overall, this is a good game, the Get A Life mode is good, but I would not reccomend this if you own the PC version. Just stick to that. Otherwise, go out and get it now!

You shouldn't like this game, there's no explosions except maybe a cooker catching on fire, there's no big cars or planes, there's no jumping from platforms or battling with demonic creatures. Yet somehow, you're hooked within the strange little existence of The Sims.
The experience can only be described as like watching Big Brother but with you in control of what happens as you move each of your characters to perform quite mundane tasks like going to the toilet, have a shower, make dinner, watch tv, and sleep to name the most common few. However, performing such tasks are vital to the happiness of your Sim and leaving the bladder meter to go to low for example will result in the Sim wetting themselves, is not a pretty sight, or if you don't let your sim sleep they will simply fall over. It's all quite comical and is the equivalent of a light entertainment computer game, but it's what the game does to the player is what amazes as you begin to care about their welfare like they're some kind of fragile pet and it's then that you realise you have to get out some more.
It's not all about bodily functions though, there's a level based mode curiously entitles 'Get A Life' (you can't help but feel this a note to the gamer) and through this you have to complete certain missions like looking after mum or getting off with a party girl at a roomies party etc which all lead to you unlocking some great products which you can buy for your dream home. If you don't want to bother with that simply complete some of the missions and start on the general game which allows you to create your own sim family and build their dream home from the little money you have.
