    I have played every Sims base game and expansion pack there have been so far, so, needless to say, it's traditionally hard for me to get bored playing Sims games. I have had this game for a week now and I actually am try... Read Full Review

    Solid base game, depending on what you're looking for in The Sims franchise

    I cannot emphasize enough that the problem with The Sims 4, like the main article for the review says, is that The Sims 3 exists. TS4 plays very much like TS2, and feels like a successor to TS2 in that it has similar gam... Read Full Review

    Heading down

    Sims 4 is like Sims 2 with a better trait system...It's like they fired whole the staff and hired some new guys to build this game from the zero point again!It took this franchise several years to reach an interactive c... Read Full Review

    I bought Sims 4, returned it, bought a sandwich with the money.
