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.
In this game you play as the actual sim moving with your ps2 controller. you can play free mode or story mode. What stinks though, is that you can only save 1 game! I mean I could make it better and i am not even 16 yet. But it still has killer graphics, and asome 2 player.
