I’ve been an avid player of The Sims since it release back in February 2000!
Wow I feel old.
I’ve moved onto The Sims 4, at this stage of the game my favourite release has and still kinda is The Sims 3. Anyway.
I like the new features. Which include being able to build in bulk, ready-made rooms, styled looks, an abundant of add ons for looks and character creations.
I like playing out their lives, with their new jobs and the perks that come with them. I also enjoy that the jobs now seem to be more skilled based than friend based which I always found tiresome.
One of the low points for me is the babies, no longer can you see them from birth, through toddler to child, they are now babies for a few days then straight to child. I rather enjoyed teaching them to walk/talk/potty train etc and see what child they’d turn into via how much attention you gave them.
However I’ve got a few add on’s for the game which has made it more fun. I bought Spa Day on sale at Game. This is quite fun, you can place down a giant Spa in the world and your Sim’s can visit it. I loved this, the spa is relaxing and the different treatments you can get there is fun. I can’t seem to find any food though? So this can become an issue over long periods.
However I don’t know how entertained this would keep you long-term. I found it interesting for a bit but mainly use the at home add ons from the pack. These include meditation mats, yoga, sauna’s and new gym equipment which I’m really enjoying.
And I also brought Get To Work directly from Origin. This I’ve found really fun.
Personally I didn’t think too much of being a Detective, it took far too long to do anything and I found the career progression slow. Theres a lot of loading screens because of having to go to crime screens which can be very boring.
I havent tried being in retail.
The Scientist is quite fun, not to mention you can make freeze rays and such. I have been enjoying exploring this but haven’t advanced very far yet.
Being a Doctor. This is my favorite. It’s not quick, quick to advance but you can still get enough done to advance at a nice pace. There is more added as you go on such as the x-ray machines and surgery, I keep nearly killing people on the surgery table. Also the only downside I’ve had about this is that there’s a slight bug when you’ve treated a patient you have to re-admit them to the bed after everything you do. Unsure if this is just my game but it’s definatly a bit annoying as it cuts into your work time.
I would highly recommend getting this Expansion, there is hours worth of fun in it and I’m really enjoying it at the moment.
Do you play The Sims? If so which is your favorite?
