Storyline

"The Sims" is a close up look at a family of Will Wright's critically acclaimed "Sim City" series. In this game you create a family of "Sims" and build a house for them on the lot they are put on. As the game progresses, your Sims lives take a turn for better or worse. You get jobs and earn money, buy equipment to increase your skills, make friends with other Sims, fall in love and get married and ultimately have a bouncing baby Sim. However, disasters do strike in the Sim world; pipes can burst and start floods, fires can break out and burn up things, you can get robbed by burglars, and if not properly taken care of; your Sims can starve to death. The game includes many real-life aspects as realistically as possible. Who knows? Maybe your Sims will finally be able to buy that Plasma Vision Widescreen TV some day... Written by jondaman816

User Reviews

Pretty addicting
21 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

This game is fun. You can control a family up to 8 people. The game is now more funer with the Livin' Large expansion pack. The most annoying thing about the expansion are those roaches. It's pretty funny to watch my sims stomping on them. Plus! On the expansion pack, you could choose from more objects than ever. Sims can do things they couldn't do in the normal game. Livin' Large is a pretty fun expansion pack and the game itself. You can download many objects and skins on webpages on the net.

I give this game 9 out of 10
