EA have done a fine job of making everything work. From the initial creation of your SIM though to building your house all works well with in the console parameters. It’s addictive as it ever was in the PC, but you get to play it from the comfort of your couch.
Of course if you don’t have the history of having played SIMS before, and you’ve been bought up on a steady diet of Call of Duty and Halo, you might find SIMS a little slow. It’s a game where you get to go to work 5 days a week, where you have to manage even the minuet details of your SIM’s (or SIM family) life.
And even though you can hit fast-forward whilst your SIM is at work, if you don;t have the money to remodel your house and build a pool, you might find yourself scratching your head.
For me, I’m pretty excited. With RUSE released a month or two back and now SIMS, it’s looking like developers are really working to get some good strategy games running on consoles. Now all we need is for SIM CITY to come out (I always liked being able to create a bustling city and then introduce Godzilla) and Company or Heroes (The only game that made me wish I had a PC).
