The Sims Life Stories Reviewed
10:11 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

Fragland recently posted a short review of the PC version of The Sims Life Stories, the first in a new series of storyline driven, laptop friendly, Sims titles developed by Aspyr Media. Faulting the game for staying true to established gameplay rather than reinventing the simulated wheel, Fragland gave Life Stories a score of 54%

From the review:

The storylines is what sets these life Stories apart from the original Sims 2. There is Riley: she has returned for a new beginning, but there’s an ex boyfriend who changes her plans. And there’s Vince: a high-tech wiz who’s looking for his soulmate but has been unlucky so far. Next to playing this soap there’s still the possibility to play the classic way, so without storylines.

These stories are brought into the game by objectives that have to be successfully completed. If your Sims manage to fulfil these tasks, their mood will be improved together with some other advantages. Those who know the Sims series, know that little Sims are, to put it mildly, needy and probably wonder if it’s even possible to do other things in between the filling of the little meters. Luckily they’ve thought about this at EA, because once the needs of a Sim are fulfilled, it takes longer for the little one to be needing anything again.
The Mac version should be available in late March. The full review is available at the link below.
