  • Excerpt: I woke up this morning and headed for the bathroom. After finishing my business I jumped into the shower to get cleaned up. I got dressed and went on an interview in hopes of finding a new job. When I got home, I washed the dishes and then cooked some dinner. With a full stomach, I sat down to read for a while before watching a little TV. Isn’t my life thrilling?

  • Conclusion: Call me a square or call me out of touch with the world of gaming either way I still don’t get The Sims and perhaps I never will. But I can’t deny that this is a well made game.

  • Conclusion: The Sims certainly isn't for everyone, but this is a good, playable if unspectacular conversion of a strangely addictive PC time-waster.

  • Conclusion: Overall the gameplay is very good. Although selecting things with the analogue stick can be a bit fiddly at first, the way the control options and menus have been mapped to the joypad buttons works extremely well, probably better than the PC keyboard/mouse option. The sims interact well with the surroundings, even better than before, and have some amusing (if occasionally strange) animations, but I spotted the occasional glitch (like not being able to apply wall paper to...
