Christmas is coming up soon, and if you don't know what you want to get then maybe the Sims is for you. Nightlife has been out for a while, there's the Holiday Party Pack that Andy reviewed
, but also the Sims 2 on Consoles and Handhelds. We've taken a look at the PlayStation 2 version of the game, which is pretty much the same as the XBox and GameCube ones, and after checking out the game thoroughly, the review is finally ready. Time for us to let you know whether the game is worth it, despite the (minor) issues and glitches:
"Once you're done creating a Sim, you're ready to be thrown in the story. Well... Story might be a bit optimistic. Your goals are based on golden and platinum wants. Your Sim has one of these at any time, where a golden want helps you through the lot and a platinum one unlocks one of the 12 locations. You'll first need to complete the gold wants before you get a platinum one. Although at the beginning of the story you'll only need to control your Sim, and fulfil golden wants of your Sim, this changes after a short while. You have to help other Sims with their golden wants as well, and so progress through the story."
So if you're interested...
