Review: The Sims 4 (Play Until You Drop!)
When it comes to playing the Sims 4, you want to make sure that you play until you drop. I guess you don’t have to literally drop when it comes to playing the game. However, you’re going to want to make sure that you’re getting in enough game time when it comes down to it. This means being able to practice and get more from the game than you ever thought possible.
If you’re already a fan of the previous Sims, then you know that this one is definitely a better one that has given the player even more. This is a plus since the player wants to be able to customize and play to their heart’s desire. This can be done when playing this game.
Keep in mind that just like with the other Sims games, you can be sure that you’re getting the basic game and they do have expansion packs that are going to bring more to the table. Expansion packs provide pets and a wide assortment of other extras that you can use to get more out of the game. This is a great thing to consider if you’re a hardcore Sims player.
Customizing the Characters
One of the biggest things I love about this game is that you can customize to your heart’s desire. This is pretty much the entire point of the game besides basically playing house in a virtual way which is always a good thing. You want to make sure that you take your time going through the many options that they provide you with on the game since you can go with different ages, nationalities, voices, looks, etc.
I really mean you can customize everything that you can think of on the person. The shape of the eyes and nose, their body type and so much more. All of this is able to be shaped and perfected. This is something that definitely will suck up some time if you want perfection before you start playing the game.
You can make one or two people or create an entire family. You can choose relationships between each of the sims that are in the game. This then allows you to create the whole family unit and you can even mix and match the genes from the parents to create children with.
Building a Home
Building is another feature that puts you in complete control when it comes to the customizing that needs to be done. Unlike some of the other options out there, when you build a home, you choose what you do and do not put on the home, what the home looks like and what you have in each of the rooms. You can make the house as big or as little as you want.
They have many different choices to go with when it comes to the style of the home and the materials that you can find on it. If you’re creating a home then you want to make sure that you have the necessary rooms needed to give the Sims the space they need. Add in doors and windows, you can even add in a pool in the back. The options are limitless which is something that so many people enjoy about this game. You can build just about anything that you want.
Building is not the only thing you can enjoy. In this game, when you add in your garage and driveway, you can even put in your brandddd newww carrrr. Before in the previous Sims, you were not able to drive a car and you’d have to call a taxi to get around, if you were able to do this, which you were not in the very first Sims. Now you can choose a car that you can drive yourself around in. Times are a changing for the Sims.
Playing in Your House
Once you have made the family or the Sims and you have built a home or choose one that was already built, then it is time for you to play the Sims. Like I mentioned before, you do not have to worry about not having many options to go with when trying to make them do many actions. Now you can basically have them do a little of everything. The free will is also a nice feature since they will be sure to take care of themselves so they do not die. This was there before and just like before, you can turn it off if it would be easier.
You go through many walks of life and you can create relationships with other people in the town. There is a lot to explore when it comes to actually playing the game. Another perk of this game is that you actually get days off when it comes to working your job. Before you would have to kill yourself to work and also do the other things that come to life. You also never aged, so I guess that is a plus.
Have a little fun when playing the The Sims 4 and make sure to check out the many different features that are found in this version that you wouldn’t be able to get in the others. Such as a beautiful nursery with a baby that you can actually play with.
Why I Recommend This Game
If you have played any of the Sims before then you know why this game comes so highly recommended by me and my other fellow Sim players, but also because it gives you so much more than the previous versions. When the fans talked about what they wanted, EA definitely listened to them and made the Sims a bit more lifelike than what they originally came out to be. Now you can go through so many more phases of life, use so much more in the home and have so many other functions that you once didn’t have access too.
If you want a game that you need hours to devote to it because you’re going to get caught up in it pretty easily then this is going to be it. You might not even know that the hours have passed so quickly because the game is just that much fun. I recommend this to everyone and anyone. Do you love playing house? This is the game you want. Do you love building things? Check this out. You love creating and dressing avatars, you get that with this game, as well. It is all there for everyone to use and have fun with. Oh, plus the ever loved cheat codes that give those special builders more money also work on this Sims, so you can build and decorate to your heart’s desire.
