Summary: The first SIMS game I played was SIMS 2 Pets and then I decided to buy this one. The way you control the people is completely different than in SIMS 2. If you first played SIMS 2 DO NOT regress to this one, it's not worth it and you won't like it. However if you have NEVER played the SIMS, then go ahead and start with this one just to get you familiar with it all, and then when you get the SIMS 2 you will be happier because its easier.
Summary: I'd recommend some of their newer releases of The Sims for the PS2.. this is definitely a grind in comparison... a step up in graphics from The Sims 1 on the PC, but their following releases on the PS2 are funner with an edge of humor (The Sims 2, The Sims 2 Pets, The Urbz...). Seems unfinished in general. Lack of 'style' (very plain clothes and objects to choose from). The sims are very robotic in movement.
Summary: This game works correctly, I think. But I had trouble getting out of the first room, it doesn't really tell you what to do either..so I am kinda stuck in one room of the house.the very first level....I haven't touched the game in months, when I purchased it. It hasn't spiked my interest enough to go back to try to figure it out yet.
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.
Summary: When I bought this game, I was expecting it to be like the original pc game. I was surprised to see the game didn't let you play around like the pc but gave you missions to complete. The missions started out small and then get more demanding. The game still keeps to the traditional Sims. I was hoping more from the two-player mode. When I first got this game, I enjoyed playing it but the longer I had it the more boring it got.
Summary: The Sims is a good game. You get to make your own people and try to run their lives so they could be happy. I suggest you get this game for your computer instead. There's so many features they left out of this game. The big one is that you can only do one level of your house instead of two levels like on the computer game. Plus, the graphics are not that good; again, better in the computer game. If you get the computer game, get The Sims Mega Deluxe Pack.
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.
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.
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.
