I have owned every other sims game since they realsed it out on the pc so i decied to buy it for my psp. There is sum exenlent ideas ant least u have a goal in the game with the missions unlike the old sims games when you would play it for hours and then nothing would happen in the end, The only downside is the loading after and before any action but i can put up with is as i think its a great game. Love the idea that your living in a town were everything is wierd and youve got to find out whats happening its a great sim syle story. And i also not to worried about not being able to speed up time. All in all i think its a good game to own for new and old sims gamers.
