The Sims 2 Reader Review
Remember the Sims? The first game was kinda educational. You can... well, control the sims. You play with life, give them a hat and some shirts, make a building, enter it... and just sit back, and see what they are doing. That seems boring. But isn't. The Sims 2 is almost fully able to create. While sitting back and seeing how is your sims are doing, you can always use the blue bar below. Here, you can actually see how your sims are doing, and look at what they want and fear with. So you got gizillions of options.
You can enter a bio for your sim. So if your naughty sim ate somebody else's food, you might type: 'I have accidently ate my brother's lunch.' or something like that. The new 'wants' and 'fears' shows your sim's dreams. Does he/she want to get a job as a nurse? Does he/she want to read books? Does he/she want to tickle mum (or get ticked)? If she does as it says in the wants and fears, it's her/his want. The sims has got fears. Does your sim want to avoid your dad getting killed? e/g, and those are your sim's fears! Yeah! Oh, I mean: "BOOO!"
Well, it couldn't have been any easier: your sims memories. Those remind you of what your sim has actually done (the memories might be something you haven't even known about!). It's so easy. And the classic 'Needs' bar is here as well. Those things are sorted more complex like, but your sim can always shout what what he/she needs! Creating a neibourhood is so fantastic, and a little bit like the SimCity games. I called mine 'Mono's Drake'.
Making houses is harder than you thought, but it's incredibly fun. You can always add some extra items while playing with the blue bar. Just click on 'Buy Mode' or 'Build Mode'. You will be set for a creation. The camera is frustrating at first, but once you get into it, it's easier than most games. It might be hard if your mouse hasn't got a wheel as well. Creating sims is... brilliant. (I'm starting to run out of ideas without the word 'good') Millions of options. You can be smart, or a mean teenager, and even an elder.
Overall, The Sims 2 is better than the last. It's easy pro options, creation tools, content to download and body editor means this a perfect purchase. now lets see what's up with The Movies...
