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 fights, love affairs, grand adventures and mysteries. Go treasure hunting to uncover hidden objects. Embark on new quests to help your kingdom achieve a new ambition.
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.

Summary: Ci troviamo di fronte ad una produzione che ai più apparirà come un mod amatoriale, vista la scarsità di aggiunte sostanziali; si spera di vedere, in futuro, un nuovo The Sims, con un nuovo motore grafico, una nuova ambientazione e, perché no, una di quelle idee geniali che ha spinto il primo capitolo della serie nell’olimpo dei videogames.
