Excerpt: This game has been out for a good long time. However, I wanted to write a review on it, because of the way this game changed the gaming industry. I can not remember how many years ago it was that I bought this game, but I do remember playing it since. I will break down the information I have about the game here. -Game play- In the Sims you start out by creating a person, you name them, and then you get to build them a home.
Excerpt: It's almost difficult to imagine a time without The Sims - the series has grown and grown, now on its third installment, but began as something of a sleeper hit that then evolved to the series we now know it as. The game pits the player as the controller of a neighbourhood of simulated characters, where you can control anything from the most banal of movements, such as their going to the toilet, to their loftier goals such as getting married and even having a child.
Summary: This game is a huge leap from the pc version! Including the new and improved 3d graphocs and new gameplay. But it does have its faults, for example it clearley says you need to send your sims to work in a good mood in order to get promoted, so I did and it says send your sim to work in a good mood! Hello! I just did that! But the graphics are good and the objects and furnishgings are all right to.
Excerpt: The Sims is a perfect game for everyone, because it can be really easy if you want it to be or you can make challenging by trying to get to the top of the career ladders and so on. What I like about the Sims is that you can do virtually anything you want, I mean you could run a family into the ground or you could turn them into multi millionaires. And there are many ways that you could do both of these things.
Excerpt: Ever wanted to control other people lives? To have to power to make or break their lives? To create yourself and friends and then do whatever you want to do with them? The Sims lets you do all this and more. My personal favourite thing is that you can go completely crazy and screw up their lives just for your own personal amusement or you can make yourself and give them the perfect life you wish you had.
Excerpt: I love both The Sims and The Sims 2. The Sims was the original game launched by Maxis and EA in which you run your own family. You start the game by making your own family. You can have up to 8 people (or sims) in one family and you can change their head, and their clothes, top and legs seperate. You can also decide on certain criteria for your sims such as how outgoing they are and how nice they are.
Excerpt: The Sims is a simulation/life game where you control the lives of people that you have created. When you first start the game you are met with a small neighbourhood with about 10 house lots. There are about 5 pre-built houses and 5 empty spaces. You can use any of these houses or you can choose to build your own from scratch. Some of these pre-built houses have families already living in them.
This game is good, but you are better of getting The Sims 2.

Excerpt: The Sims, Maxiss' first attempt at creating a "life simulation game" More than that, it worked. This game is very involving, and lets you take the position of a god, looking over this family of virtual people, I don't know if you have seen the game Creatures 3, and if you haven't i suggest you go check it out, but the Sims are no where near as intelligent as those virtual creatures (If you haven't seen the game, read "Not very intelligent.
Excerpt: The Sims transformed computor games forever, and will surely live long in the memory. Taking control of other peoples lives (be they real or virtual) is always fun, and the Sims gives the perfect environment for this. Take control of 1 person and govern their lives, from showers and meals, to a career and the ability to cope with disasters, or you could do exactly the same but with a whole family or just a couple.
