  1. But a New York City-sized upgrade to the visual presentation along with the inclusion of mini-games and more focused, goal-oriented gameplay should appeal to the urban-centric Sims fans that prefer console action to the PC.

    This game was sort of fun in the beginning, but after awhile it gets boring, I absolutely was disappointed this game is horrible compared to the previous Sims, even bustin' out was better, I got so sick of really working for my money, it wore the buttons out on my controller so badly, do NOT get this game, it is very bad.

    And now, EA ruins "The Sims." You loved their destruction of "Goldeneye." How about their destroying "LOTR" and "Catwoman. (with the help of the horrid movie)." This game is tedious, bland, and repetitious. Nothing more needs to be said. Full Review »
