I am a big Sims fan and I think they could of done a lot better. The room decoration tool is hard to use and you can't set things against walls, and their is not many different furniture to decorate rooms, you will find yourself putting three of the same couches in one room. Another new feature is that it is real time, days pass a lot slower and their isn't much to do in the game except help guests gain sanity. They added a lot of mini games even talking to someone is a mini game, it gets annoying, having to keep playing the same mini game over and over again. Although if you like the Sims you might get a kick out of this game for a few days.
