    The Sims Freeplay is not free and honestly is not even "play". Indeed you actually can't play it if you don't want to spend money for getting all the actions complete. We found this slow gameplay really frustrating and we hope that EA will listen to the users.

    This game is starting to border on the ridiculous. freezes up and my tasks NOT completed and if I use, baking a cake, they are lost. Also,. the ridiculous fire pole goal.Neighbors have fire pole. Or, a 'functional fire pole' stairs. THEY ALL COST TOO MUCH!!!!!! AS DOES THE SECOND FLOOR. Also, how many times do you do a goal over and over???? Teens learning to drive...6 hours. I am on my 10th TRIP EACH FOR 2 TEENS!!!! Ridiculous. Tasks that take OVER and hour and cost OVER 25,000.00 Simoleans are ridiculous. Also, supposed to ride an inflatable pool toy at a neighbors house (and you are wrong...myself and several friends have to COMPLETE The joyride. It does NOT give it to you as soon as you get on!). I have done the 4 min ride.....twice. The 60 minute ride...twice. The joyride....AGAIN!!!! Still says it is a task....???? What started out as a fun gun game is NO LONGER as fun....sad to say. Toying with quitting...for the 2nd and FINAL time. Also, my tasks are NOT color coordinated for age groups as you mention. Also, what is the deal with the teen sign and the island places???? Sims Free play with it's exhorbitant pricing...too long time limits and constant freezing should be called "Maybe Play Definitely Not Free Sims'. Absurd! Full Review »

    I love this game! But the only thing I would change about it is that there's not enough hairstyles to try to make someone that you know, also the teens need to be able to turn into adults so they can have jobs and get married too. But overall I give it a 8 out of 10 Full Review »
