The Sims: Medieval (PC)

ccgr.org
9 October 2011
  • 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. From the first trailers of The Sims:Medieval, though, that little sparkle of excitement began to show again, and deservedly so. The Sim Studios have outdone themselves.
  • Pros: Rich graphical world compared with previous EA Sims games, adjustable AI levels, fewer mandatory daily tasks
  • Cons: Repetitive quest lines in each Ambition

The Sims Medieval

Strategy Informer

  • 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. It's got a few kinks to work out - both in technical terms and in the way some elements are implemented, but we'd happily recommend this to both Sim fans and newcomers to the franchise.

The Sims Medieval Review: Lutes And Tights Can't Save This Sim

Game Informer
15 April 2011
  • Conclusion: Concept: Try something different with the Sims formula, replacing the essence of the series with experience points and quests Graphics: No surprises here; it looks like The Sims, but with armor and castles Sound: The music would fit right in at your local Renaissance festival Playability: The added combat system could have been cool, but it isn’t well implemented or fun Entertainment: All of The Sims' signature humor is intact, but the gameplay is too shallow to pay off...

The Sims: Medieval (PC) - Review

VGChartz
11 April 2011
  • Excerpt: The Sims Medieval is the newest game in the Sims franchise. The marketing for this game would have you believe it is just an expansion pack for Sims 3 , but don't be fooled. It may use the same engine, but it is very much its own game. Role playing elements such as leveling up and completing quests have been built in alongside the relationship building and basic human needs of life simulation.

The Sims Medieval Review

2 April 2011
  • Excerpt: After more than a decade and 100 million copies sold, there's no arguing The Sims is one of the most popular game franchises in history. What could be argued is whether or not The Sims have worn out their welcome. Having done everything in the last ten years from an MMO to player-created content, creator Maxis' hopes for invigorating its aging franchise are now pinned on new RPG-centric Sims title, The Sims Medieval —and by Merlin's beard, they've done it.

The Sims Medieval

impulsegamer
1 April 2011
  • Excerpt: One of the world's most popular games goes back to basics but not in the literal sense. The latest incarnation of The Sims takes the player back to a simpler time of knights, princesses and dragons for some entertaining medieval frolicking in The Sims Medieval . You might be thinking that we've seen this all before and this is just another Sims expansion but thankfully it's much more as EA have revamped this franchise and included elements of the popular RPG genre.

  • Conclusion: More an interactive fairytale than a game, this Sims spinoff tells a good yarn but feels limited.
