  • User Rating:6

    The Sims go back to the middle ages, will they stand the test of time or be fade away into history?

    The Sims Medieval is a spinoff from The Sims 3 and was released in early 2011 with a new approach to the franchise. Ahh the Sims...so familiar right? No the Sims went back in time to create something completely new. ... Read Full Review

    Fun and adorable tales of your kingdom!

    Playing Sims Medieval is like reading a novel about a fantasy kingdom where you slowly discover the stories behind different characters. With each new quests, you feel like you have just started a new chapter in the book... Read Full Review

    Good alternative to sims 3

    So far I am very pleased with the game, it is extremely fun, and as a game who could ask for more? This isnt sims 4 but some of the new game mechanics are really good but underneath it still has the sims 3 feel. I feel... Read Full Review

    The Sims have always been about being you, this game is nothing like that you just follow cookie cutter quests instead.

    What are you relay left with? A bunch of linear quests that are pretty much step by sptep. Talk to this person, then go here, then cook this (Hope the final part of the quest actually works). Just because I'm medieval n... Read Full Review

    Sims goes in a new direction while keeping its spark

    So ever wondered what Sims would be like if you actualy had a goal? Well guess what, this game is it. They have taken away "jobs" that you can choose your sim to have, and hell, theyve even taken away the fact that yo... Read Full Review

    EDIT.

    After I spent 6 hours playing this game, I checked the achievements, then chose a quest and went to the bone pit. I wanted to see what I can do about it. Only option to choose was to jump in it. So I saved my game and th... Read Full Review

    Creative new spin on the Sims universe

    I'll say from the start this isn't the Sims you grew up with. Medieval take the Sims in a new direction, one that is less on absolute free will and more on tasks and objectives. The quirkiness that we all grew to lov... Read Full Review

    A game that just can't decide what it wants to be.

    The concerpt itself is a interesting one however its very poorly implemented. The Game itself just can't seem to decide what it wants to be, apart from the green diamond and the speech its not the Sims in much of any ... Read Full Review

    It's not bad, but not what I expect or want from a Sims game.

    If you're considering buying TSM because you love the Sims, don't. Because you're going to regret spending that money. WHAT'S THE SAME In both games, you can design your own characters, furniture, walls and floors. ... Read Full Review
