  1. Probably more fun than any other game released in the last half of 2002.

    I actually enjoyed this take on The Sims more than the original. [Feb 2003, p.94]
  3. The sound effects in the game - from brewing up a fresh cup of cappuccino, filling a bathtub with water, or typing away at a computer - sound extremely, extremely convincing.

    It's simple yet complex, well explained, and entirely unusual for the PS2. There is nothing like it on this system, and for that very reason it's worth picking up.
  5. The control elements of this game were wonderfully ported from the PC to the PS2.
  6. Anyone thinking of "getting a life" would be well advised to do so in the real world rather than this one. There's nothing wrong with the execution - it's the concept that's so dispiriting.

    Very nice game, but to hard to move them and to dark colours. In conclusion you can play and you wont feel the real time..

    This is the worst game I have ever played! I owned it for 2 days and took it back because it sucked so badly. I should have rented it first. This is the worst game I have ever played! I owned it for 2 days and took it back because it sucked so badly. I should have rented it first. I own all of the computer games of The Sims........ they are awesome, so i thought this game would have been good but it sucks so bad. Please, if you are going to buy the game, rent it first it is the worst game ever made. It is nothing like the PC versions. Ciao Expand
