Conclusion: Still, this is a highly enjoyable experience. Granted, If I could have my way, The Sims: Medieval would simply be The Sims 3 (as in the set-up) but in a medieval town instead of a modern one, but this isn't a discourse on what we wish it could have been.
Conclusion: EA has gotten much better over the years at making expansions that are worth the cost of entry but Pirates and Nobles doesn’t fit the build. There is a lot of new content both in terms of objects and the new quest which can add a lot of gameplay hours.
Excerpt: A player of all-things-Simlish, from the original SimCity, to the micro-managment of the little Sims themselves, I have to say, the whole daily routine and need fulfilling was beginning to grate. The only updates were starting to look like an Ikea store crossed with that party place on the corner.
Pros: Rich graphical world compared with previous EA Sims games, adjustable AI levels, fewer mandatory daily tasks
Excerpt: Product Description The Sims Medieval Pirates & Nobles Adventure Pack introduces new quests, treasure hunting, and hundreds of new objects for your medieval kingdom! Your epic story starts when the Pirates of Aarbyville and the Nobles of Tredony arrive in your kingdom, followed quickly by sword...
Conclusion: I tried to play The Sims Medieval in as many different ways as possible to find the one that fitted, but I couldn’t find it. The game seems promising at the start as it offers adventure, political intrigue, duels to the death and medieval banquets.
Summary: The Sims Medieval places the Sims characters into the Middle Ages and brings players robust, compelling gameplay never seen before in the history of The Sims, letting you create heroes, venture on quests, build and control a kingdom, and play every Hero Sim character in the land.
Conclusion: If you can get passed the too-linear quests there is some fun to be had in building and living your kingdom. I’ll also give EA points in trying something different with the theme. Still, the game has it’s problems; some of which will be fixed with a patch.
