The Sims 2: the next generation of the #1 PC franchise of all time.

For the first time, players control The Sims over an entire lifetime. Every choice that is made has a relevant and dramatic effect on the life of a Sim. Guiding your Sims through "Life's Big Moments" takes on new importance, as players now get a "Life Score" to measure how well they are playing each individual Sim. The decisions that players make throughout the lifetime of their Sims now have an impact on their long-term success or failure. A choice made as a toddler has a direct effect on the teen and adult Sim they become. Will players be able to successfully lead their Sims through such important events as a first step, first crush, or marriage proposal, all while the clock is ticking?

The Sims in The Sims 2 are more aware and responsive to both other Sims and their surroundings. Sims truly come to life expressing moods and feelings through more realistic body animations and for the first time facial animations. They form complex relationships and are able to distinguish between family and friends, platonic friendships and romantic love. Sims in The Sims 2 now have DNA. Passing along physical characteristics and traits to their offspring, Sims both resemble and behave like their ancestors. As in real life, the appearance of the Sims now changes over time. In addition to getting older, a Sim that spends too much time on the couch will develop a paunch and a Sim that works out will enjoy rock solid abs.

An entirely new 3-D engine makes the world of The Sims 2 more life-like and dynamic. The Sims 2 will also introduce an all-new "Create-A-Sim" feature. This allows you to customize the facial features of your Sim with a few simple clicks to a level of detail never realized before. In The Sims 2, players are now able to build dwellings over two stories and have the ability to coordinate and customise the homes of their Sims to a new degree of design.

    Well if you had The Sims 1 series, you will know how much we enjoyed all the aspects of that, BUT!! The Sims 2 gives us all we love about playing The Sims, plus everything we wanted to have in the original game & more! Game play is So much closer now, so you can pan right in to your sim. You can make a baby, go through 3 days of pregnancy, (if only!) LOL! then name the baby when it arrives. You can also teach it to talk, walk, learn skills, right through to having birthdays, being able to blow out candles on the cake and watch your sim grow up! Your sim will eventually grow old and die in this version, which hasn't been done before, so you can either age gracefully or get the green juice reward & live longer! You also get wants & needs now, & you are rewarded for giving your sims what they want. They also get aspirations too, so they seem much more real. You can choose if they are family orientated or others like studying,partying etc. You can also pan in closer to every object/lot so its so much more fun when your building, lots more tools to build with too, so now your building skills are only limited to your imagination!

    I have this game and it dont work on vista unless it says so on the back. My mums pc is xp and it works fine on there but my lap top is vista and i now have to go and buy another 1 that says its compatible with vista. Just thought you'd like this info

     The best PC game of all time!

    Absoutly love sims. Its so fun to play and you can get them in all sorts of scenarios. Definatly the best PC game ever!!... just to let you know I have windows vista and it works brilliantly. Its fine if you have a laptop but i would recommend buying a proper mouse to play it.

    Buy Sims 2 its amazing!!

     Brilliant game

    I love this game!! When i first got it i was so amazed that i was able to control people and build lives for them - its just a really fun game. I only got into building houses about halfway through and soon got into modifying the game with custom content. It can be so simpe as to sending your sim out to work everyday, get married and have a child, or have them have 10 kids and enjoy every minutre of it.
    I'd recommend buying it as it is really an amazin game, and isn;'t too old for children either.

     It DOES work with Vista

    If you have problems running the game in Vista (it won´t save, houses and people just vanish, lags ect.) don´t choose run right away when you pop in the disc, just exit that menu. Then you go to wherever you have saved the game (usally Programs/Maxis/The Sims). Right click on either 800x600 or 1024x768 and then choose "Run as Administrator". Even the first game runs perfectly when you do this ;)
    I highly recommend this game to everyone no matter what age you are. The time just fly by and it´s easy to spend 6+ hours without even looking at the clock :p
