This game is a cheap imitation of the PC version. It consists of most of the PC versions drawbacks(Excessive micromanaging, ect) without many of the pros. The build tool is extremely restrictive and the buy catalog is more than a little uninspired. Simply put this game feels sloppy and incomplete.

When I first got sims2 i was excited about playing it but when i got on it it took 10 min. to load and when it finally loaded it took another 5 min. to load again and after all that in game play I found out after it lagged that you automatically make out with the kind like boys with boys ( compete turn off) I found the game was really long and boring.
When the Sims first came out I bought it and loved it. Eventually I would buy some expansion sets and even the PS2 titles of the game. Then the Sims 2 for the PC was released and I bought that. Two expansion sets later, I heard the Sims 2 was now available for the PS2. I rented it and played it. At first It looked pretty neat and controlling your sim was smooth and easy via the anolog stick. Then I realized I was playing a dumbed down version of a game I already own for the PC. Also I found many problems in the game. For example, when you are talking to a sim and speed up time you can here the conversation from 50 sim minutes ago. Sure there are a numerous amount of items to be unlocked and the new making your own food system is nice, but that is not going to cut it this time around. I would not give this game my stamp of approval and would not recommend it to anyone who expects a totally great sims game. Maybe they should just kill the franchise already.
