Excerpt: Graphics- 7 out of 10 Certainly one of the things the Sims has going for it is its graphics. They aren't too sharp but nice and decently smooth. The sprites are strong and Maxis detail sufficiently their objects. Sound- 4 out of 10 The Sims has perfunctory sound quality and decent, workable SFX. Music doesn't ever change unless in different modes. Play Control- 3 out of 10 The cursor moves painfully slowly.
Excerpt: I purchased this shortly after its release and it kept me entertained for about a week. For around Â£30 I expected more than a weeks worth of entertainment especially seeing as this game doesn't have any extra replay value, it is what it is and there's no more to it. Initially looking after your sims, organising their lives etc is quite fun. The fun however disappears once your sims climb their career ladders.
Summary: How boring? Who wants to waste thier time telling a computer character when to get up, wash or go to the toilet? Buy a fun game which involves a story to detach you from the futility of life. This will just makes you depressed.
