ADDICTIVE!!!!!!!!!!!

Anandini Sekhar, Amazon

  • Summary: I had a blast playing this ... I started playing The Sims for PS2 for the first time at the Game On exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry. Then I borrowed it from a friend - still can't tell if that was a mistake or not. This was while my now husband and I were planning our wedding, and we'd find ourselves spending hours playing this game instead of doing what we were supposed to be doing.

Sims lover

  • Summary: I brought this game when it first came out in January last year and I've always been a fan of The sims. I found that the sims for the playstation 2 when I first played it was a unique experience in its own right yet it made me long for more in dept options. I knew that once it was ported from the pc to the consoles it would be watered down, but I didn't know how are how much until I played.

One storie game...

  • Summary: If you played the PC game, then stick to the PC game because this should have been titled "Sims Lite" for PC users who own a PS2 too. On the other hand, it's a great game for anyone new to the Sims universe and may not be able or willing to invest all of the time (and expansion packs) into the Sims. Being that I think the PC version ran it's course after the release of Hot Date, this may be a good game for formerly serious Simers to use to get a quick fix now and then.

Old School Sims players might be disappointed.

  • Summary: The Sims makes the leap from PC to PS2! Sim fans may be a bit disappointed, but those who have never played the Sims before should have a blast. The Sims for PS2 is a bit different from that of the PC. The PS2 version is broken down into 2 different games. The first game, Get A Life, is a goals oriented game. That is, you have to have your sim satisfy a number of goals before moving onto to the next level. You start out creating your sim and living in your Mom's house.

  • Excerpt: Maxis has long been recognised as a company that excels in producing Sim games, from creating and running huge cities ala the sim city series or an altogether smaller affair, like 'The Sime'. The Sims could probably be best described as a life simulator, the player must create a household of happy and succesful Sims, this objective is multi faceted, balance your Sims love lives, working careers and general happiness to create the perfect family (or if your so inclined...

  • Excerpt: Everyone would like to be god, controlling your sims and having fun with them. Loads of people would agree to the sims being one of the better games for your computer, you can spend hours and hours on this game and have a really great time. On the Sims you have to create a family, this means you decide how your sim/s appearance will be like, you also decide what their personality is like which will reflect in their behaviour, you also have to decide what clothes and...

Buy it on PC instead

  • Summary: I am a huge Sims fan and could not wait for the title to be released console version even though I had some doubts. I should have listened to those doubts. Maybe the game would have been totally great for me if I hadn't already been totally spoiled by playing Sims with all the expansion packs for the past few years on PC which is absolutely way too cool for school.

Fantastic Game with a slight twist of disappointment

  • Summary: I love the Sims for the PC. My dream came true when I heard about the PS2 version. If you have looked on the maxis/sim website and looked at screen shots, don't expect the game to look like that. The PS2 game is not as clear as the computer game. Also you can't get as close as you can to all the "action" as you could with the computer game. The worst part about this game, in my opinion, is the fact that in order to play the sims "freestyle" (like you do on the computer.
