Excerpt: The Sims : House Party is a new add-on disk to the genre-busting best-selling people simulator, The Sims. This new expansion focuses on parties which provides an excellent way to get large groups of sims together in one place (without having to make multiple phone calls) and to maintain relationships with multiple sims at once.
Excerpt: The Sims review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com What can be said about The Sims that hasn’t already been said a hundred, no a thousand times before? Ever since that fateful day in January of 2000 when Maxis unleashed The Sims on an unsuspecting horde of PC users, the gaming world has never been the same.
Excerpt: The Sims is the people simulation made by Maxis the creators of Sim City. In this game you can build houses with architectural design tools, to decorate walls and floors, use landscaping tools. You can create various characters and families and put them into your world. Here we are to bring you few screenshots from this hottest Maxis release.
Summary: The Sims is really, really cool. If you want a game where you can spend endless hours of your life dictating someone else's, this is a smart choice. This will probably be one of the best games of the year. I totally recommend playing the Sims, but remember: get off the computer every once in a while, or YOUR relationships will suffer.
Excerpt: The Sims is a game for anyone who thinks that real life is boring. And that must be a pretty good number because The Sims is the best seller in the nation this week. Created by the same folks who made the popular SimCity series, The Sims drills down to the neighborhood level of a city and in fact puts players in charge of a single household. The first part of the fun in the game comes when you create your family.
Excerpt: Maxis has graced gamers once again with yet another potential hit. After making hits like SimCity and all the other Sim games, they bring us the one thing that no one else has done yet: a simulation about people's lives. I guess the sadistic little part of me always wanted to control the lives of little people and mold them into the most pathetic or most prosperous people ever. Before I started playing this game, I hoped that I would be able to do this.
