The Sims 4 Review


The Sims 4 is more of the same micromanaging we've loved for fifteen years, and that can't be a bad thing.

The Sims 4 Review


The feature list is bare, but the Sims themselves are incredible.

As fun and addictive as ever ; Impressive people-sim

Some irritating (if minor) bugs ; Missing features feel like a step backwards

The Sims 4 (PC)


Popular life simulator returns with more possibilities for domestic mayhem

High level of customisation ; Installs well and runs good

Camera could be better in spots ; Missing features from past games

Sims 4 does a good job of bringing a new coat of polish to the familiar people management simulator. Fans may come to view it as a slimmed-down version of the Sims 3, though new gamers will find much to explore.

The Sims 4 Get Together Review


The Sims series has never been adept at group control—a party with random strangers doing wacky, random things, yes, but not maneuvering a small gathering of people in tandem from one activity to another. The best you might be able to muster is...

Group function keeps gatherings tight; Groups are highly customizable, fit many situations, and have lots of perks

No new professions

For better and worse, Get Together revolves almost entirely on its group feature, a function that will ultimately make you wonder how you ever lived without it. It allows you to do far, far more with what The Sims 4 already has. That said, the...

This leads me into another larger change to the series, which is actually not a complaint but something I've welcomed with open arms. That change would be the super detailed new create-a-Sim function that has been added. Now, players can grab specific...

The Sims 4: Outdoor Retreat Game Pack


Come for the camping and weenie roasts. Stay for the crazy hermits, annoying bears, and poisonous substances. Good times.

The Sims 4 Review


Quite a history lies behind The Sims franchise and now a whole new epoch is being written with The Sims 4 from EA and Maxis. The major evolution this time is the emotional rollercoaster that is the human condition, and how we'll need to navigate around...

It’s hard to pinpoint a single moment, but getting my Sim ready for a full day’s work in tech support only to have breakfast ignite the cooker, and then the shower bust and flood the bathroom as he put himself out reminds me Sims have bad days too – on...

The Sims 4 review


The Sims, the king of DLC since before DLC was a thing. After the release of the series' first expansion pack in 2000, The Sims has become one of the most widely extended game franchises ever, with 44 content packs to its name so far. Digital...

The mood, skill, and aspirations systems working together as a dynamic whole.; A huge focus on fan creation.; The humorous situations that you DO encounter

A lack of items and interactions compared to previous installments.; Fewer fun and quirky moments.; Seemingly endless pop-ups that can't be dismissed
