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.

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
I waited a very long time for this game but I feel VERY let down my EA
There are NO pools, NO toddlers -straight from baby to child, You CANT follow them to their workplace/school,ONLY two worlds, NOT able to place your own land to build a house you MUST use the allocated spaces
SO much has been removed from the game it's like the whole of the sims franchise has taken a hundred steps backwards,
Such a shame
Sims 4 has lost so much in return for so little,
I can ONLY imagine the reason for this is so that they can money grab with expansion packs......
This is SimCity all over again. I won't delve into too many details because long reviews for a game tend to be boring in my humble opinion.
I noticed a lot of path issues. For example, characters clipping with objects. My character constantly clips around a kitchen chair. The world is too small to play. You can't explore too far into the neighbourhood like The Sims 3 allowed you. There are very, very few objects to personalise the lot. There are even less items to personalise your sim.
The Sim builder tool was hyped as being the best thing since the wheel was invented, but you can't really manipulate many points on the characters. The cheek for example, you can't make it "fuller". You can pull it sideways, it will grow, but what if wanted my character's face to be a bit chunkier? Cannot do it.
You have very few hair styles.
On the positive side, the build tools were improved a bit, however you still get stupid issues like rotating rooms but the doors won't move along the wall. They said it would be seamless.Read more ›
