    JUST IMPROVE WHAT WAS ALREADY GREAT

    This game is good in every way. The graphics are good since character models and facial expressions are detailed and nice. But backgrounds are kinda of bland. And at a distance it gets somewhat fuzzy. The sound is good ... Read Full Review

    One Of the best game ever. I Think that EA has created a game that can really be considered as a life simulation.

    This game can be considered as a Revolutionary game as it has changed the gaming habits of players. While playing the Sims, players simply feel like immersed in a new world where they can create their own sim and make i... Read Full Review
