the sims

I'm a fan of the Sims series. The Sims 2 is my favorite so I had to try the original. The big problem with all Sims games is that they all work better on the PC. Don't get me wrong, I like the fact that the games are on the consoles but it feels more better to play it on the PC. There are a ton of unlockables to get, the humor is nice, the game has good modes, but there are sometimes when I focuse on one mood I forget about another. For example, sometimes I would try so hard to get my players Fun bar full I would forget to fill up my Social bar. Then when I focus on that the other bars start to go down and that just gets me swearing out loud. Your roommates don't have the smartest AI either. They will constently make stupid decisions. Though you do get to take control of them. The mode "Play the Sims" is alittle fun. Overall The Sims is a good game to play but prepare to be taking care of your Sim alot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!- !!!

I like the sims. It's just a fair deal better one PC. So, if you have a computer that can run it, get it for PC. If not, it's deffinately worth a rent.

Unlimited possibilities.
Character creation.
Unique, fun gameplay.

Controls are clumsy on console.
No real beginning and end.

I thought the sims was going to be an exelent game
but it wasn't as good as I thought it would be. If you like long games where it's hard to pay bills and robbers will steal your television then this is the game for you.
thank you.
