    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 someth...

    Fun and adorable tales of your kingdom!

    Rated on March 23, 2011 by testingnorman

    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...

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

    Rated on March 23, 2011 by rpgguide

    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 be...

    Sims goes in a new direction while keeping its spark

    Rated on March 23, 2011 by therokito

    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 a...

    EDIT.

    Rated on March 28, 2011 by net_mugger

    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 ...

    Creative new spin on the Sims universe

    Rated on March 24, 2011 by Crimson_Erskine

    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 tha...

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

    Rated on March 26, 2011 by Dreamwind42

    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 ...

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

    Rated on March 25, 2011 by pattyd

    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...

    When i started to play, my first thought was great im thrilled and amazed that they made a game for sims that is focused on medieval age. Watched the EA logo, the Opening, just got me excited and the...
