When i started playing this i expected this game to be just like the computer version. but it was different, it wasn't just staying clean, eating and just work, this time you have goals to accomplish and fun little mini games. I really do love the recent modern clothes the game have. i do love the fact that you control the sim and use the little joystick to move the sim around instead of telling him what to do and ignore you. I had a blast playing this game. its just like the computer version except you go on your own adventure.

This game is a really fun game that is really good for those gamers that are just trying to have some fun. The only thing that I think is bad is the game is really time consuming and also you have to feed the charecter, sleep, ect. way to much. One thing that is better about this Sims game is instead of going to work and actually working you just get in your car for work and through the game until you get home. In this game you can also get a girlfriend or boyfriend. The only bad thing about that part is that is that also takes too much time

I enjoyed this game for quite a while before it was returned, mainly for the joy of multiplayer with my friend.

I've liked The Sims for years, going way back to when I was eight or nine years old (5, 6 years ago) playing it on the computer, making my little house and cheating like heck to get money (hey, I was stupid that way). The whole idea of trying to make this poor little Sim happy was more than just that. It was in-depth. I mean, it's quite a bit more resembling of our world than one might think. Thinking is what this game makes you do. Strategizing how you can best use your time, to make sure your Mood is high enough to get that promotion, always remembering to do the quick things before the long (bathroom before bed), it's really amazing, for what it is.

The one thing that bugged the heck out of me, though, was in multiplayer, whenever a message at the top of the screen popped up ("The carpool for XXXXX will arrive in an hour." et cetera) it blocked the time; probably the most important essence of the game, and you couldn't make the messages go away faster than they did. If you can deal with that, I'm sure you'll enjoy this game for at least a week.

Oh, for those of us with an 8 MB memory card, watch out, this thing takes up a whopping (no sarcasm intended) 161 blocks. Quite reminiscent of the old one...
