Please read!

I absolutely love this game! But there’s one thing that really really really bugs me about it and sometimes ruins the experience: how long it takes to do tasks! Some tasks take reasonable times such as 10mins or 1 hour but some tasks, especially quest tasks, take a stupid amount of time.
For example: I’m on the very last task of the DIY homes: basement of kings quest and there’s a time limit on the chance to get the DIY home, there’s only 2 hours left on the time limit and I’ve just finished the second to last task and I think “wow I might actually have a chance to get something for once” so I click on the laptop and the last task is to “pump up the fans” - something I thought would only take around 15-30 mins and allow me to finish the quest and get the DIY home. So I quickly get to a laptop and see that a usual everyday 15-30 min real life task takes 16 HOURS to do!! I can’t afford to instantly finish the task so I’m forced to do it in full, which means I miss out on the DIY home! It’s so frustrating! Sometimes I think EA deliberately do this just so people buy the vip packs. Please fix this as this is the most annoying thing ever! Please make task times more realistic as sometimes it takes even 6 hours to talk to a sim!

Kinda good, kinda bad

Been playing this game for years now, but usually end up deleting it out of frustration then re-downloading it a few months later for another go. The gameplay is easy and really addictive, but the time it takes to do most tasks is ridiculous. You have to wait 6 real human hours for a sim to talk to someone, and it’s often longer than that. This was an issue years ago and it still is. It’s obviously a ploy for money since there’s not enough time for timed quests, there’s the VIP bonuses, simoleon money, LP etc. etc. which makes you feel you need to pay for stuff.

You can’t really enjoy the game thoroughly because have to sit around for days waiting for a sim to finish baking a birthday cake. Timings need improving, sims need more variation, home lots need updates to make them e.g. bigger, and one of the things that bugs me the most is only being able to delete ONE item at a time from the inventory. I’ve accumulated a few thousand items and it’d take a gd century to delete it all.

The game needs a lot of work - the developers should focus on improving current gameplay rather than adding new challenges. But FreePlay is not unplayable, it’s just annoying most of the time. If you’re gonna download this game, you’ll need patience, commitment, and (if you want to fit in with the timings) lots and lots of spare time.

This game is amazing, I love it soo much! I only have a few problems I’d like to address. When I played this game back in 2011, the background musics were longer and I really liked it. Now in the new updates, they’re quite short and I don’t like the music that much now. I’d be really happy if you brought back the original versions of the background music for the sake of nostalgia. Also, I would like more face options for the preteens and the teens, and I would like to see what they do when they go to school, like when the adults go to work at the police station/movie and we get to see what they do there and make them do several actions until they complete their shift. I personally think that would be great for the next update. I would like a new Christmas quest as well, along with a pre-Christmas community event to get new decorations for the houses. Additionally, the game might be better if talking to a quest related sim, like the nanny, didn’t take 5hrs. And it’s the same thing for doing an action. In reality, nobody sits on a couch with a baby for 18 hours, and nobody takes 3 hours to wash their hands.

However, problems aside, I still love this game so much ❤️❤️
