    Managing more than 2 people becomes difficult. Can make more money constructing gnomes and selling them than your char could in any job. But this game was sooo well made. I have only seen the missing animation box once. Buy now! (or totally miss out on the fun)

  1. The added tools and features will give you a reason to dust off that sim family you may have forgotten about.
  2. If you haven't experienced The Sims before, now's your chance. This bundle will provide you with plenty of gameplay and introduce you to the enjoyable addiction that The Sims can be.
  3. If this weren’t a re-release or the Creator worked a little better I’d probably give it a 10.
