The Sims Medieval – Review (PC)

  • 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. Once that patch comes feel free to give the game a 7. Right now though the bugs knock the game down a point.

The Sims Medieval Review

13 April 2011
  • Summary: Brew the ale and shine the stocks, The Sims are heading back in time in an all new side game, The Sims Medieval! Do these drafty castles hold adventure, or just the bubonic plague for these virtual sea monkeys?
  • Pros: Mission based play and less prominence of family-based play may be appealing to a wider range of player., Lots of different quests keeps gameplay from getting too repetitive too quickly., Ability to kill sims directly.
  • Cons: Mission based play and lack of options may alienate die-hard fans., Automatic fighting, trading and hunting takes away much needed gameplay variety., The Sims is the chick flick of gaming, even with the extra murder.

  • Cons: Quests become a repetitious chore, Too little freedom to live as you wish, Dollhouse elements are greatly restricted

AV Club
11 April 2011
  • Excerpt: After 11 years, three editions, and a host of expansions, the Sims series has taken a dramatic new direction. The Sims Medieval takes the game out of the modern suburbs and combines life-simulation with an RPG, giving you control of heroes that must find time to do their jobs, eat, sleep, and make friends while pursuing quests to improve and protect their kingdom.
