By now, The Sims doesn't need much of an introduction, especially considering the fact that since its original release in 2000 for the PC, it has reportedly become the best-selling computer game in history. Maxis' innovative game about controlling the...

Bryan Dawson gives us the heads up on the PS2 version of the ever popular The Sims!

Overall, the game is a near perfect port of the PC version, but it still lacks in several areas. Players who were frustrated with the learning curve of the original will find the new "Get a Life" mode extremely helpful. However, with the recent release...

The Sims - PS2 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Telling a person from 1987 (the era when Paperboy was the equivalent of GTA III) that the best selling videogame of the future would entail getting a job, making friends, reading a book and going to the toilet you would have been laughed off the face...

The Sims is a solid game, which should have any Simulation fan playing this one for a while. The games multiplayer is loads of fun as well and is great when you have friends over. The Sims is a game you'll be playing for a while; well at least until...

The Plot:A game that has fascinated many and will likely add more to its fanbase with its arrival on the PS2, "The Sims" is one of the fastest-selling PC games of all time (XBOX and Gamecube versions are coming soon). The game allows players to...

Conclusion:Rating Issues: "The Sims" is rated "T" (Teen) for some suggestive situations that your Sims get into, as well as "comic mischief" and "mild violence". There's really nothing here that's graphic or troubling. It's an intelligent, entertaining...

The Sims is a smash hit on the PC, but how does it fare on the PS2?

Excellent storyline mode, 3D makeover, intuitive control scheme, more of the same addictive gameplay

Limited zoom, hard to see action in multiplayer mode

Those wacky Sims invade the PS2 with style.

The visuals on PS2 are much better than the PC version. The Sims are less bland with better colors and textures. The frame rate fluctuates depending on how and where you're moving the camera, but it's not too big of a deal. All the trademark Sims music...

The Sims Review for the PS2

 

Who left the toilet seat up?

Good translation of the PC original; New goal oriented single player; Two player modes

Translation of the 3 year old PC original; So many more inherent features to the PC; Look and feel is relatively the same; The same little problems of the original

Still, I think if the PC and the PS2 games came out at the exact same time, I would still choose the PC one for features that thus far remain inherent to the PC, such as expansion packs (as expensive as they are), web features, customization, and...

What can be said about The Sims that hasn't already been said a hundred, no a thousand times before? Ever since that fateful day in January of 2000 when Maxis unleashed The Sims on an unsuspecting horde of PC users, the gaming world has never been the...

Well, I thought my sim lovin' days were over, but just when I think I'm out, they pull me back in. Even after spending countless hours with The Sims on PS2 (and loving every minute of it, mind you) I can't help but wonder what the next manifestation of...
