  1. Everything the PC version was and more. With pleasing graphics and all new modes of play, you’ll find that there’s a whole new meaning to the adage, "get a life."

    The PC version is still preferable if you have the choice, but The Sims is an insanely addictive game no matter what platform it’s on.
  3. If you’ve got a PC lying around then you’re better off with the PC version, but The Sims on GameCube is still a mind-blisteringly good game if judged on its own merits.
  4. I believe that this is the best life simulator (if you don't consider "Animal Crossing" a life simulator) for the Gamecube.
  5. 85
    Some gamers might feel that forcing their character to drain his or her bladder is just too tedious, but I say that those gamers are missing out on a chance to allow their Sim to soil their pants and make a nice little wet spot on the kitchen floor, whereby a second player can join the fun and kindly mop it up.
  6. 80
    This console version makes enough changes to the original game that even hard-core "Sims" purists will want to give it a spin.
  7. Most home computer gamers will find this version of The Sims to be a novel diversion, but they will eventually return to their monitors and keyboards for the easy, open-ended play that is only available there.

    I personaly liked it and I have only rented it and I am waiting for the price to go down on it. It is really a great game. But it also is I personaly liked it and I have only rented it and I am waiting for the price to go down on it. It is really a great game. But it also is very annoying. SFor people who don't have a lot of paticence this game is not for you. You need to have paticence to be the the best sims ever. If you don't got paticence then you don't got what it takes for the game. I liked it a lot! But I am not that paticence so some times it got kinda boring and once you beat it its like okay what di I di know but there is a lot more on the disc! Happy trails! Expand
