Summary: Instead of free-living mode, The Sims 2 has a feature called the Aspiration Meter, which is what your Sim wants to do with his/her life. Baby Sims just want to grow up, and once they do an automatic aspiration will appear. Popularity is filled with bringing home friends from school and throwing wild house parties. Romance can be jam packed with kissing and public ï¿½Whoo-Hooï¿½ing. Family Aspiration gets you another baby every week!
Summary: The best. I have all the expansion packs (Universty, Nightlife & Open For Business), and this game is so much fun to play, you can build houses, get married, go shopping, have fights and do whatever!! I know its a girls game really, but its the best ever!! I play it for hours on end!! Its also good that u can dowload things of the site too!!
Summary: What an awesome game. I thought The Sims was brilliant when that came out, but in The Sims 2, there are far more things you can do. First of all, in this version your Sim moves through each stage of the lifespan rather than just staying the same age all through the game. Also, if two Sims have a baby together, their child will inherit genes from it's parents!
Summary: thought this game was very disappointing, considering all the great publicity it was getting before it was released, encouraging people to buy it in great crowds when it EVENTUALLY came out. In my opinion it was a waste of a good £40. I liked the first Sims, which I thought was better overall. The graphics were supposed to be excellent on the Sims 2, according to the adverts and all my friends, but I think the graphics are a lot WORSE, just like the actual game itself.
Summary: ...I do still prefer the original Sims to this one. The graphic details are exceptional (at least to me, since this is my first experience with a 3-D game). However, I miss a lot of the things I've grown to appreciate from the original Sims series--pets, gardens, vacations, restaurants, and so forth. I do enjoy the experience of seeing children grow up. The toddlers are adorable, although they do demand a lot of attention!
Very good and addictive, but flawed and not quite brilliant

Summary: First off, I didn't knock off points for the bugs the game has. The main reason I gave this 3 stars overall instead of 4 is because it's basically just the original Sims with a few new bells and whistles and a complete visual overhaul. For people who've played the Sims before, it's a solid and worthwhile upgrade although not particularly innovative. People who've never played the original will be in for a treat.
