I got this game and couldn't stop playing it. I used to have sims 1 and this is so much different! You can create a person in great detail, and customize everything! Also you can walk or go jogging anywhere in the neighbourhood, without a loading screen, you just move the screen and click on the place you want to go.
The only thing about this game is you have to have either a very new computer or one with a big memory. Otherwise, the game will just freeze 5 minutes into playing it. Other than that, great game!
