“Try this game!”

published 14/07/2007

ProAn addictive, fun game

ConsNone worth mentioning!

A great game- but be warned! this may take over several weeks of your life! Setting up your sim is your first task- you can choose their clothes, hairstyle, hair color and face features, its possible to name your sim too. You start off the game when your car brakes down- you end up abandoned in a...

“Sims 2 Is Strange But Fun”

published 15/11/2014

ProGood Game, Good Plot Line

ConsCan Get Lost In The Beginning

Sims 2 is a very strange game, certainly one of the strangest games I've played on the DS! However, that doesn't mean to say it isn't a bad game,its actually pretty good! Though, I have to admit, I've not been playing this game an awful lot but I've spent some time on the game and its really good...

I got this game in a used game store with two others on a 3 for £10 offer. It is for nintendo DS and is a small cartridge in a plastic box with an booklet inside. To play the game you just insert the cartridge into your DS and tap the game icon, it does not need any installation. The game is for...

I love The Sims, The Sims 2 and can't wait for The Sims 3 (which comes out on 5th June), however this game really does belong on the PC. It's just not the same on any other console as I found out whilst playing The Sims 2 on my DS. The Sims 2 on the DS is very limited, even the fun part of...

If you're a fan of the other Sims games, especially those on the PC, you may be in for a surprise if you pick up a copy of The Sims 2 on Nintendo DS. It's a whole different game. The game centres around a hotel in Strangetown, in the middle of the desert. Your car breaks down in the area and you...

The Sims 2 DS Being a Sims fan I knew that I would like this game although it is a lot different to playing it on the PC. I was used to the original Sims but fancied a change so got this for the DS instead. Nothing to do with the fact I had been bought a new pink DSi for Christmas!!! As with all...

Okay, so it was my sister's birthday and my mum took her out on the day to buy her presents as, to be honest, she's never satisfied. So, anyway we were in ASDA when we noticed that nintendo ds games were 2 for £25. Selected ones. So, my mum lets the sister with the birthday and my other sister...

The sims 2 was the first game that I bought for my nintendo DS, as I had loved the PC Sims 2 game. However this game on nintendo DS is totally different to the PC version, although it is still an excellent game. In this game you find yourself in strange town, where you are given the job of...

Firstly I'd like to say to all Sims fans that this is NOT your typical Sims gameplay! Forget looking after hunger, sleep etc. in the usual way as does not exsist! All of this is now incorperated into your 'sanity' meter. This is highly confusing to begin with but give it time as it only takes a...

The sims 2 is a great example of how a great game on a different console can compare just as good. The sims 2 is very addictive and uses the real time in the gameplay. There are quite a lot of collectables which can slightly improve the lenth of the game however you dont really need to collect...
