Jan 2, 2014The Sims is a revolution in the gaming world. Never before had we could not control the family, build houses, and Organize party. I have to admit that I liked this idea. And although in 2000 arose game with better graphics, it just Sims was not needed. Pleasant to saw on Computer fellows in isometric projection. Cool was also the Simlish language that was incomprehensible mix of several languages. The only thing in this game I did not like is the limited ability to create Sims. Then Sims came only in the world of games so I can forgive them Music listening is really nice. And as for expansions-as opposed to The Sims 3 all expansions for The Sims 1 gave a lot of revolutionary changes and objects. This is a really cool and fun game.… Expand
Jul 28, 2014I absolutely hated it.
I was so excited for this as it was being developed by Maxis.
But, my one and only full night really trying to love this game was a disaster. It was depressing.
Get up, barely make it to work. Get home, barely make it to bed. This is already my life. Why on EARTH would I play this?
I'll give it a 6 since it had few bugs and the underlying system was well-constructed. But, I really disliked playing this game.… Expand
Jan 13, 2014i remember playing it when it was released, and still dont get it...
mechanics of the game where bad, to say the least(eat, s***, wash, or sleep? cant do it all since it all takes about same ammount of time)
i believe it was a first try for drm crap...ppl could buy stuff like say a lamp for additional money....(real money)
all that aside, and the mechanics (hopefully??) fixed today, its still not more(or less) than an interactive dollhouse.
now, thats fine, and i wont judge ppl who like it, but i guess im just not the right recipent.
its for girls and generally more casual gamers(which is fine, really) so i never got to like it very much....(since im neither nor)
after building my place, i usually quit and had no motivation to look back.
id have loved to see an implementation, a mix if you want, of both the sims and sim city, maybe there were plans for that, but well....its ea....
Feb 27, 2012I am so departed from this game's audience, that I fail to understand the target demographic's attraction to what is essentially a mix of 'barbie' and 'whatever soap you choose to make it'. This is one of the few games I cannot be objective about. Nothing struck me as insightful, engaging, entertaining, fun, progressive, or meaningful. I guess it was original for it's time. And that has to count for something. Right?… Expand
