I'm a huge fan of this game. That being said . . .

Summary: When Sims Medeival and Pirates and Nobles came out I spent hours playing it. I'm not sure what happened to my discs and I wanted to load it onto my new laptop and was sorely disappointed to learn, AFTER the purchase, that neither game is compatible with Windows 8. Sims Medieval will play, but you can't update the program. Pirates and Nobles will not play at all.
Summary: I was very excited when this came out, but there aren't specific nobles and pirates to control like I thought there would be and there aren't that many items that were added to the game. If it's on sale like it was when I bought it I would recommend it for the items and extra quests, otherwise I would not buy it.
Summary: I <3 Sims3! I love being able to do what I want when I want w/out major consequences to my Sims. This product does not cater to that joy. If you like games where you have to follow specific tasks in order for your character to be happy, buy this game. But.. if you like the freedom you have of Sims3, do not buy this game.
Summary: To start, I must be honest, this is my first SIMS game. I received it as a Christmas gift and I have about 2 hours into the game. (Two hours I can never get back.) Maybe if I had experience with other SIMS games I would appreciate SIMS Medival, but if this is similar to game play for all SIMS games I don't understand the appeal. If I have to do every menial task for each character, (I have to cook my own food?!?), well..
Summary: I prefer The Sims 3 series, and often chose to play that instead of this game. In my opinion there is not enough options and things get boring really quick. I feel as though, yes it is mission based, however half the time you don't even have to do anything special, you just click on the map.. do so and so and then you just sit there and wait. It's alright, however not amazing.
Summary: I have played all the Sims games, and enjoyed most, so naturally I had to get this one too. I enjoyed the quest sytle in this one, however, I thought it would have different quests available in each level. So far, it does not (I have only been through three levels though). It could use more choice in hair and clothing styles, , but overall, it is a nice change from the other Sims genres.
Summary: I bought this game hoping to play a game that would be like the Sims(1,2,3), but with more political options. It isn't like that at all! Starting a new game, you must choose a play-style that will influence quests, etc., but for the first game only one is available. This wouldn't be too unusual if getting through one game didn't take so long-this IS a Sims game.
