The Sims 4

Control the mind, body, and heart of your Sims, and bring your stories to life!

The Sims 4 is a life simulation video game developed by Maxis and The Sims Studio and published by Electronic Arts. The game has the same concept as its predecessor, The Sims 3; players control their Sims in various activities and can form relationships. The game, like the rest of the series, does not have a defined final goal; gameplay is nonlinear. The Create-a-Sim and Build Mode tools have been redesigned to allow more versatility when creating game content.

Game Features:

  • Create A Sim One major change to the Sims 4 Create A Sim is that sliders have been obliterated and has been replaced by direct mouse click drag and pull. Through mouse click and drag and pull players may directly manipulate the facial features of a Sim. Players can also directly manipulate any body part including the abdomen, chest, legs, arms and feet. This is a new feature and was not included in previous Sims games where only the fitness and fatness can be manipulated on a Sims body. However, fitness and fatness levels may still be adjusted in Sims 4 with sliders as in previous games.
  • Buy/build mode In The Sims 4, build and buy modes have been combined and is now treated as a single feature. A detailed build-and-buy system is present along with neighborhoods and landscaping. Some locked buy mode items may be unlocked through the progression of career levels.
  • The Gallery The Sims 4 includes social features, such as importing Sims and houses other people have made from The Gallery into the player’s game. This impacts the world around the player’s Sims. Players may publish their creations into the Gallery for other players to download into their game instantly.
  • Worlds The Sims 4 base game originally shipped with two worlds; Willow Creek and Oasis Springs. Both worlds contain five neighborhoods and a total of 21 lots. Newcrest became available with a free update, having three neighborhoods with five empty lots in each, for a total of 15 lots.Magnolia Promenade came with the “Get to Work” expansion pack.

The Sims 4 Reviews

7.4 Total Score
Very Good

The Sims 4 has lost some appeal as a total life simulator, but on the other hand it has won much as a role playing game. The core game is magnificent and well designed for the most part, but there are a ton of missing extras, which will presumably be filled out with various DLC packs.
