The Sims has returned once again. But does The Sims 4 offer something new or something better than its predecessors? Read along as we give you our verdict of this fourth installment in one of the best-selling franchises of all time.
The Sims 4 doesn’t have a story in a traditional sense. In The Sims you’re supposed to make your own story, and your actions as both a Sim and a creator have you define what happens to your characters. This is basically the concept of a life simulator, and The Sims 4 doesn’t stray away from this concept. The journey from the cradle to the grave does feel a lot more simplistic though, and this is an issue I’ll certainly be addressing in the gameplay section.
You live like you play. Want to be succesful? You’ll have to work hard to get there. Just want to stay home and sit on the couch all day? That’s also possible, but you’ll have to find some way to pay the bills in the meantime. Your Sim’s live can go in many directions, and whilst they have some free will (free will is optional), you’ll need to push them in the right direction along the way.
