The sequel to the best-selling PC game of all-time In the The Sims? 2, you direct your Sims over a lifetime and mix their genes from one generation to the next. You set your Sims' goals in life; fame, fortune, family, romance or knowledge. Give them a long, successful existence or leave their lives in shambles. Take them to extremes, from getting busted to seeing a ghost, from marrying an alien to writing a great novel. Unleash your creativity with the all-new Create-A-Sim, new building options, and the new in-game movie camera.

The are few forces in PC gaming greater than Will Wright's The Sims, a non-game triumph that lets users noodle around with no goals hanging dramatically over their heads. The only goal is to exist without the digital community and have a little fun through collecting fun mementos, forging relationships, and watching life unfold ont he other side of the screens.

At first the slow pace can be trying for action junkies, but after a short bit of time you find yourself playing just a little bit longer to finish that last task or to reach another goal.

But the underlying gameplay and A.I. that made the PC version such a cohesive package is lost on this new generation of sexless sims, who care only for new rugs, expensive coffee tables, and balanced meals. They’re perfect yuppies, and perfectly boring.

Good God, if this game doesn’t immediately suck you in and render you worthless for hours on end, then I don’t know what’s wrong. I’ve, on occasion, sat down to play for a few minutes and then noticed that it’s been five hours.

I spent most of my time getting my Sims to seduce one another. Sims are bisexual, fickle and intensely jealous.

This all-new version adds minute details to the daily rituals of the little inhabitants — you can almost zoom in to see specific ingredients as meals are prepared, or read book titles on shelves. Watching the Sims dance is a triumph of animation.

It is presented well, but it has some gameplay, and computer intelligence issues that might hinder your experience.

The Sims 2 loses something in translation from PC to consoles. Namely, its addictive, entertaining gameplay.
94

Just watch out though because once the game digs its claws into you it’ll own your life. If you want to buy the game give your friends an early notice, because they won’t be seeing you for a long while.
