It's alright.

LossOfLife1 , GameStop
29 November 2010
  • Summary: It's ok, but I've seen better. I thought it was pretty good for the first family or two, but, it lost its appeal after. I recommend to all Sims fans. :3.

Are the Sims a parable for the Matrix?

"webparable", Amazon
6 March 2003
  • Summary: PRO: The user's agency not only draws us deeper in the game, but also initially attracts us to it. The Sims capitalizes on the human desire to witness immediate tangible results and create the best life for ourselves. CON: I don't want to play the game enough to memorize the commands simply because there is too much to remember, and I don't have the time. I could never become immersed in the game. PRO: I felt as if I was controlling a world.

Disappointment

Amazon
17 January 2003
  • Summary: To start, I am a huge Sims fan. I hve all the expansion pacs and am constantly checking te website to see what new things are happening in the Sims universe. So when the PS2 version of the hit PC game came out, I rushed to buy it...bad move. To begin with, the level-based gameplay is not all its cracked upto be. What's great about the Sims is its openess - you, the player, choose what your goals are, be they loads of money, love, oroverall succes.

Ugh- Don't bother

Amazon
23 March 2005
  • Summary: It's possible that will like this game if you have never ever played the PC version. Your options are very limited and the 2 player mode is just plain awful. I was very very disappointed since I adored the PC version. Maybe I'll give bustin' out a try. Maybe not.

The Sims- Not Bad but Not Brilliant

15 June 2003
  • Summary: This game when i first brought it was a challenge.The first two levels were fairly easy but then things started to get tough.Now im not saying i gave up because i found myself wasting away 2 hours when it only seemed like half an hour.It just started to become impossible to do.Your Sim was constantly in need of fine tuning a charateristic,which ultimately meant you had no time to actually progress through the game because he would always need food or sleep or the biggest...

Simulated rubbish

James Coysh, amazon.co.uk
25 May 2003
  • Summary: In short, I found this game rather lacking. When I bought my copy, bugs sprang up from nowhere within minutes.The gameplay is rather boring actually, requiring meticulous attention to detail which had me snoring in front of my PS2 (thats a first!), literally. The only two innovations are the two player mode and the "Get a Life" mode. The two player mode isn't worth trying.

Not Bad

"frenchfrog40", amazon.co.uk
13 May 2003
  • Summary: I was really excited to learn that the PS2 version of the sims was coming out. However, i was slightly disapointed the graphics where dark and not as good as on the computer. The goals where quite fun but it was just the same really as the computer game. Not worth spending your money on.
