  1. With a great system of matching symbols in order to chat and flirt and a world in which a different life can be dictated for your Sim each time you start a new game, The Sims 2 is great fun and game that'll last you ages.

    There are things like loading times that can annoy from time to time, and the graphical blurs can be a pain, but the amount of gameplay and content here is fantastic, and to be able to customise your house's interior on the move in full 3D really does appeal.

    Rather than port the PS2 game, The Sims 2 on PSP is a tailor-made experience that hooks you early on and doesn't let go. A superb game. [Jan 2006, p.112]
  4. A charming PSP game that doesn’t lack most of the familiar gameplay elements while adding some fresh ones but then again its most troublesome glitches are just too bothersome to ignore.

    The addition of perks and secrets, not to mention mini-games and the sanity meter, help keeps things fresh. The coolest change blends a focused, genuinely funny story with the open-ended gameplay that fans have come to love.

    As enjoyable as it is bizarre, carried off mostly thanks to the patented Sims humor and skewed worldview. [Feb 2006, p.85]

    The sims 2 PSP, I think its safe to say that I was surprised with this handheld port from the series. I think the game did extremely well byThe sims 2 PSP, I think its safe to say that I was surprised with this handheld port from the series. I think the game did extremely well by having the charm to the fans of the series. The story was dark at points which was not done yet in the franchise. Everytime the story progressed, I wanted to see more and more of the game until it was done. I also love the idea that Bella Goth, A character who was in the Sims PC and consoles (Including Busting Out) Sims 2 and now Sims 3 reveals that she only married Mortimer for the money but she does give you his mansion to stay...But this does bring up a plot hole in the story. Where is Motimer, even Cassandra. TBH it doesnt really matter, I didnt really use the house that much anyway. As I owned this game when I was a kid, Think how scared I was when I saw that monster is the third area of the town you unlock. It was harder to relise who this person was because I only went outside during the day, not the night. I havmt re-visited the game in a while but I can say that this game is way more superior to the DS. Not as superior to the PS2/XBox port and definatly not the PC versoin but it is still a game that is worth playing. If you see the game and your curious, pick it up. wont regret it. Full Review »

    Picked it up years ago expecting it to be a mediocre The Sims game and I was left alone with this spooky third-person survival mysteryPicked it up years ago expecting it to be a mediocre The Sims game and I was left alone with this spooky third-person survival mystery adventure (lol) kind of game. I still have no idea what that was, but it sure as hell left a good taste in my mouth! The concept was suprisingly very interesting. I'd recommend playing this game. Full Review »
