I bought this game when it was $30. Thankfully I didn't spend any more on it.
Environment is beautiful, graphics are pretty good from the outside
Customization is pretty good for clothing
NO DLC!! The PC version had so many expansion packs and the only one that was added to the console version was pets, and a dumbed down version at that. They only added two animals whereas the PC version had multiple ones.
Dumbed down building options, which means no basements like in the PC version.
Honestly I could go on and on about how disappointing the game is. It is clearly just a way for EA to scoop up as much money as possible after delivering as weak a game as possible.
I would not recommend spending any money on the console version. I bought it for the console because my PC version won't run well on my laptop and wish that I wouldn't have. Save the money and put it towards a gaming PC so you can play the version that was it was meant for anyways.
Ok, so I just rented this right... as soon as I start creating my sim, its whole torso is gone. Next problem, lag. So much god forsaken lag. Then there has been a bug that makes it so whenever you save, it freezes. Now this is not new, EA knows that the problem exists, but have they got off of their arses and fixed, nahhh. So before waiting 2-6 days for shipping, think about the raging you'll do because of EA's laziness.
