The Sims 2 is a great game for virtually anyone from the ages of 13-21. This game has some twists and turns and a few boring parts (like teenagers in school) so its not perfect. The Expansion packs made this game blossom. The ability to send your pets to work, cmon there isn't another game on the PLANET that has that. If you like the idea of raising little babies or taking trips to the beach in a virtual world, the Sims 2 is "The One For You" All in all, get the game, get all the expansion packs, and set 7 hours free in your schedule because its going to feel like 10 minutes.
