    Somewhat rough start

    The first time I loaded up the game, I wasn't even sure how to change my Sim's appearance. The game does give you tutorials, but it seems to be a bit buggy as to when it brings them up for you. I've also had small (non-game breaking) bugs while playing: Visiting Sims get locked into playing Chess and wont leave, pressing X sometimes don't bring up the action menu and I'm still not sure if my hired gardener is still hired after I turn off the game. Besides those little annoyances, the game is even more intricate than previous Sims games. There's so much to do, many more aspirations and life goals, playing different instruments, careers branch off into 2/3 paths that lead to different end jobs. Once you spend some time familiarizing yourself with the controls, the game goes much more smoothly.

    A+ Game. Reminds me of the game as when I played it when I was very young. It is a very cool game. It actually even helps me be more social person and kind of excited to interact with people on the outside world in the same like fashion that I interact with people on this game. You will enjoy this game if you buy it. It’s hours of fun guaranteed. The ability to create a Sam and nurture and nature of them through their lives and find them friends and buy them homes and get them jobs and socialize them every day is such an exciting adventure

    Sims!

    This was my first time playing Sims, and I am having a blast! It's so much fun to see all the options for interactions and just mess with the Sims. I generally play this game when I'm bored, because it is a huge time waster. The controls are a little bit weird, but they are very easy to learn and you quickly get used to them. There are some minor issues: The game does stall a little but when I switch form live mode to build mode. Sometimes the game does seem to stutter, but besides that I have not hand any performance issues. .There is a lot of already available DLC which is annoying, but so far it hasn't detracted from the base experience.

    The Sims 4 feels like EA's hastily thrown together sequel to the Sims 3. Very little has been added and its missing the polish that is expected from a full-priced game. Even as a console gamer I found myself wanting a proper mouse and keyboard instead of the clunky DualShock controls. The PS4 and XBOX One support mouse and keyboard controls; it's mind boggling that a game designed for the PC doesn't support the,. While the Sims 4 is entertaining in short bursts, your better off finding a copy of the Sims 3,

    Solid Game

    Bought this game for my wife a while back and she loves it. Still plays it ( 1 year later). Simple game that can get intricate with the right mind playing it. Don't get The Sims confused with an action game or minecraft because that's what it's not. Don't buy this game on a whim hoping you will like it. Buy this game because whoever it's for (yourself or as a gift) is into building a home and a town and all that good stuff. Overall, solid game and would buy again.

    Great game with a few little glitches

    Awesome game with a few little glitches like occasional one of my characters keeps disappearing. On one occasion two parents both wanted to complete an action with the infant child at the same time and the child kept disappearing and reappearing in the other parents arms and eventually the child disappeared completely and the parents arms bent straight backward until I rebooted the game. All in all though I love the game and the overall play is exactly what I would expect from the next generation of sims.

    I got this for my daughter (10) as Xmas gift. She's loving it so much as she's able to create a family, build a house and play with them while learning some living skills (how much thinks costs and you need a job to pay for them :D ) It's not a learning game, but it's a funny one to keep her entertained while building houses and families. She's not a gamer and she's just starting to play PlayStation, so don't expect this review to fit hard-core gamers or the ones going the extra mile with the games.

    Although I only played the first two Sims releases I always enjoyed them. This new one is no exception it has a lot of features I have yet to tap into and the game itself has been a great continuation of the series. If you are a SIMS fan you willenjoy it but of course the Sims are not for everyone and as usual I took a lot of advantage through online shopping at Best Buy everything came with no problem in a really short time and no shipping costs are always nice.

    Better on PC

    Finally console players get to live their dream of playing The Sims the same way people on PC do. Sort of. The content is the same and graphically it is similar. My time with The Sims 4 was fun, I enjoyed watching my sim work and live, fall in love, die and his kids and grand kids grow. The controls weren't bad, but they weren't as good as on PC and they did take some getting used to. I must admit, I don't regret this purchase, but I see how many would

    I wanted to wait a while before giving a review just because i wanted to finish the game, or at least play it for a good amount of time. The game is okay, there are a lot of added features old Sims games didnt have however i still prefer the older Sims. The open world feature is cool and theres so many different Sims/families you can create that its a little overwhelming. All in all, for the sale price i paid its not bad.

    Like all console versions of the Sims before it, the Sims 4 on PS4 is bug ridden as well. This is unfortunately a familiar problem with the Sims 4 on console regardless of your system of choice. If you can stomach random freezes and crashes every now and then, have fun playing with life. EA needs to step it up in the quality control area more. But overall it's a good addition to see series, but only marginally good.

    I love Sims 4 and I have it on Pc with all the expansions. I thought it would be great to have it on PS4 too since I do all of my gaming on there but it wasn't as good. Pretty much everything was the same compared to the PC version but they took out the online community where you could see other people's creations so it's just a no for me. But 2 stars because it's a good port to console.

    I loved playing the original sims (mind you on a really old laptop), but now am a PS4 owner and wanted to try it out. I read reviews about how the controls left much to be desired, and unfortunately, I echo that sentiment. I barely got past creating a character, and didn't enjoy much after. Also, the game is still freaking new, but Best Buy didn't accept returns...

    I remember how many hours as a kid I would spend playing the sims on pc. Would never think a game would come along that would draw me in again like that again but this one did. Though I feel this game is not better than sims 3 its still a very enjoyable experience which I find hours have passed and still eagerly await to see what will happen next

    I've always played Sims on my computer so this was the first time playing it on a console. The controls were a little tricky at first, but the more I play it the more I get used to it. It never lags for me or slows down and sometimes that would happen on my computer, so this is a bit of a step up for me.

    We love the Sims and had been waiting forever for The SIms 4 to come to console. We have the PS4 version and love it! It has everything that you love about sim play from careers, to relationships, and of course babies! This version has lots of options for building from scratch and it has pre furnished/decorated rooms.

    Not much has changed over the years it's still fun to create characters and now it's become alot more console friendly while making custom homes and designs, currently working on a disney world full of all the human disney characters. Overall controls are simplified Graphics are unimpressive

    I've played Sims 3 on the computer, and I found it difficult to get into Sims 4 on the console. While using a controller is OK, I miss the mouse for movement. It's nice to be able to play on the TV, but the game seems more tedious than it's computer counterpart

    As an owner of the Sims 1-3, it only made sense to purchase the sims 4. This game is a great continuation of the game we already know and love. With better graphic and in a higher resolution, the sims 4 is a great way to live that live you've always wanted.

    Its much better than the console versions of the past, but its still a console version. There is WAY too much cursor use in the sims to work properly with a console. I had my hopes that they would implement the light bar or the touch pad on the PS4 controller, but its been 5 years and hardly any games use it.
