If you’ve played The Sims on PC, then you know that it’s an open-ended game that goes on forever. The PlayStation 2 version still harnesses this trait, but it also has an ending. Much like Bullfrog’s Theme line of titles, this Sims features objective-based levels. The game starts with your character (whom you customized) taking a nap on his mom’s couch. A list of goals appears and you soon learn that you must complete these challenges to move out. You’ll need to repair the TV, take out the trash, clean the house, and get a job. Each stage brings with it different objectives and themes. You’ll be asked to throw a party at a frat house, get promoted at work, hook up with a loved one, start a family, and at the end, live happily ever after. With goals and parameters in place, the gameplay quickly transforms into something a bit different, yet just as seductive and relentlessly addictive.
