Excerpt: The Sims is a behemoth in the PC gaming world. The series has sold copies by the truck load for years now, and The Sims 2 can now be experienced on consoles. I'll admit to being more than a little down on the game a few days ago, but after a brief conversation with an old colleague I felt I should give it one last chance.
Summary: If you're looking to get the PC version of The Sims 2 on your console then you're going to be disappointed but what you do get is a solid The Sims game that offers classic sims gameplay with additions, tweaks and improvements. If you have a PC then go for that version but if not and you're a fan of The Sims then this console port is definitely you best option.
Excerpt: The simulation genre really hit its stride when we as humans were finally able to control the life of a digital person in Sims for the PC. The title went on to be the best selling PC game of all time, and naturally with videogames being a huge part of the culture, the transfer to the home console was not far behind.
Conclusion: Not only that, but you and all other Sims will actually go through a genuine life cycle, the total opposite of the original game, where your Sims maintained the same appearance (except for alternate clothing choices) throughout the entire time you played the game. There’s an exponentially larger importance given to a family tree and family relationships and how they affect living a simulated life that more closely resembles an actual human life.
