Summary

Escape to a better life

The Good

The open ended gameplay offers anything that the player will wish to do for making sims happy or sad. Wants and fears goals gives replay value and makes more challenge for your sims. The video capture feature makes more sense of giving more of the sims a story or a movie. The improved graphics makes the game more depth and feel to your sims then the previous game. The variety of objects and building materials you have to build your entire house. The neighborhood system makes everything creative about your sims. Plus, let's not to forget the mods you can add all you want.

The Bad

Minor glitches can occur about error files, but you click "Reset" to ignore it. Loading times always became an issue when trying switch to houses or neighborhoods. Adding a custom skin to your sims can be confusing. There are some minor framerate drops when starting up to the lot to play. The game still has the problem of becoming addicted for hours. Finally, these problem won't ruin any experience.

The Bottom Line

The Sims 2 is a well-done game that will cram hours of gameplay, customizations, expansion packs, and mods that will always never make you stop playing. I highly recommend the game for anyone who wants to live a second life to escape real life.
