Summary: its just the same as sims deluxe but worse and the only way to play it is to make sure you have a new computer or games console which is a bit annoying because if you buy the games console at least 3 months before you get sims 2 it wont work
Summary: Having owned the PC version and having it stolen, I thought I'd get a console version to replace it because I tend to feel more comfortable playing games in that format. What a huge mistake that was. The game has been completely stripped and there is nothing in it, whatsoever, to keep your attention for more than 5 minutes. This game is truely awful. So, if you are new to the Sims and are interested in playing this game, by all means - get the PC version.
