    The Sims are back to their goofy roots

    First, note that this review is based on the game itself and compared only to other sims base games...no expansion packs. The reason is that with every new Sims iteration, the content is always small in comparison to the... Read Full Review

    Been playing for about a good few hours now and I have to say right off the bat I'm enjoying this far more than Sims 3 and I'm a HUGE Sims fan (especially 3.) I think the emotions are the perfect addition to the game me... Read Full Review

    The Sims 4 is a watered down version of the previous Sims games

    The Sims 4 - Truly genius work

    Let's be frank. When you first turn on the game, it will feel a lot different than all the Sims you've played before. If you didn't try the Create a Sim demo, it will feel even more different. But different doesn't mean ... Read Full Review

    Giving it a one to displace the current average score

    The Shits 4. This game is a huge step back in the Sims franchise and there's no excuse for this, they've removed content that should have been there in the first place that will most likely be in expensive expansions and... Read Full Review

    Sims 2.5

    Awful. Just Awful. EA are ruining a good franchise, they innovated with The Sims 1, 2 and 3 but with the sims 4 they have played it safe and gone back a step. The sheer lack of base game content is astonishing it is like... Read Full Review
