The Sims on PlayStation 2 has been released yesterday (officially), and already 3 reviews have popped up. All three reviews describe the game's features, like the story-based game mode, and the two-player mode. GamePro
says the sound is stunning, and that you'll think you understand that Simlish talk after 30 minutes of playing. With a 5 out of 5, they find it a great game. GameSpot
however, notes that the sounds are taken straight from the PC version of the game, as well as SimGolf. They also note that the game might be a bit too familiar if you played it on the PC already. Perhaps it's better to wait for The Sims 2 there - rumours go that that'll be released in March already, although that sounds awfully early. With a 7.9 it's a "good" game, and recommended to PS2 owners. The comments from IGN
about the sound are positive too: "These little creatures speak the most inane, jumbled messed up gobbledygook you have ever heard. It's darn right wrong, and sadly, strangely, it's charming too
". They're also quite positive about the graphics and the controlling interface. However, they say The Sims is not a game you'd buy for the graphics. All reviews also added some new screenshots to their databases, which you can find through their reviews.
We've created another review index for this game, and you can find it right here
. The Sims will be released in Europe in February, which means you'll still have to wait a while if you live there. Until then, have fun reading those reviews.
