The ever growing “Sim” franchise receives its latest instalment in the series, “The Sims.” This AI based game is said to be one of the most advanced and addictive titles of 2000. Welcome to the worlds first interactive soap opera, The Sims.

First and foremost, The Sims is an entirely unique experience and is not to be associated with any other title in the Sim series. This isn’t about buildings, safari’s, or any other constructive based title; The Sims is about people, and nothing else. Here, you get to play god, as you can tamper with their jobs, property, lifestyle, relationships and minds, but without facing harsh physical consequences that would occur under normal circumstances. With the option of starting a family from scratch, you can watch people fall in love, get jobs, have babies and further more watch their offspring get up into all sorts of trouble; the only difference is, it doesn’t take a life time.

The Sims has incredibly detailed environments, most of which can be interacted with to suit the needs of the family Sims. If they need to take a shower, they will take a shower, but don’t get too excited, they are censored. With all the aforementioned features, The Sims is another great addition to Electronic Arts ever expanding portfolio.
