I was highly disappointed with this game. I am an avid Sims player and have loved pretty much every Sims game that EA has thrown at me. However, this game is a real disappointment. The first thing that really bothered me was the low level of graphics.. it looks like a GameCube game, as if they didn't use the full potential of the Wii. The second thing was the game play itself. First off, who makes a Sims game were you CAN'T LOWER THE WALLS?! The walls get in the way especially because of the awkward camera movement. There was also lots of load time during game play, especially when your Sim is out and about.
If you are a major Sims lover, I would not recommend this game.. at least not on the Wii. I have heard it is better on the XBox 360, however that could just be rumors. Stick to the PC games if you really want to experience the Sims.
I rented this game for my girlfriend and I to play together. She made herself a character and I made myself one too. We bought a house and then I tried to take control of my person while she played hers and I couldn't. Sending the game back tomorrow.
