IMG Reviews The Sims 2
10:35 AM | Tuncer Deniz | Comment on this story

The Sims 2 is the sequel to The Sims, a game that broke all sales records and spawned an extensive seven expansion packs. How good is the follow-up to the best selling game of all time? IMG has posted a review of the latest sim game.

Here's a clip from the review:

Sims have basic needs, such as Hunger and Fun. If those needs aren't met, the Sim's mood and even health will suffer, therefore players must strive to keep their Sims pleased. Unlike in the original Sims game, Sims in TS2 eventually grow old and die. A happy Sim will live longer than his unhappy counterparts. Sims who lack fulfilling social interactions with their friends and relatives can even develop complexes and mental illness. Just for kicks, I decided to deprive my Sim of all social contact until, eventually, he sat on the floor, babbling and giggling to himself. It's the classic "let's pour salt on a slug just to see what happens" kind of fun. This game is so full of unexpected twists that one could easily play for hours on end without even noticing it.
