Ratings and Reviews
Awesome but incomplete.
I’m going to beat the dead horse a couple more times, just because I am hoping that Aspyr will read these reviews and see what a market there is to complete all of the expansion packs. I found this game after getting a new Macbook Pro for Christmas and then considered it a dorky dream come true. Been playing for 10 years on an old PC version on an old MacBook Pro on it’s last leg. I would love to throw that computer away. I finally got this all installed and I couldn’t believe how fast it loaded, how quickly I could add destinations. But I agree with so many other in that I would love to have the complete pack. It’s how I’ve been playing for so long, and to revert without a few key packs is very difficult because you get so used to those features, the stuff, even the hairstyles associated with those packs. If anyone from the software company is reading this, I would be willing to pay lots of simoleons to complete this package. Finding this super pack for only $15 is awesome, but honestly I’d have been just as excited to pay full price. PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN!
It’s… meh.. I wouldn’t get it
Don’t get me wrong, when you first start, it looked like it was going to be a very fun game with a lot of replay value. But the (quite ironically) reccurring problem I’ve had with many Sims games is that they are extremely repetitive, and sometimes downright confusing or infuriating. I’m getting the Sims 4 soon, and I hope it’s not as repetitive. After a while, some tasks become more of a burden or a chore rather than a fun experience, such as keeping vampire Sims alive. Yes, I have tried everything, and no, nothing seems to work. I wouldn’t buy it again, mostly because I had to wait about three hours for the download. Normally you’d have to wait an hour and a half, but still, I wouldn’t take an hour out of my day for this. The redeeming qualities of this game are there, but they’re just overshadowed by the amount of bad qualities. I was also dissapointed that there was no story mode as well. Story mode was a very fun asset of the individual games, and I was hoping that would be added. Overall, this game has left a bad taste in my mouth, as do most games on my Mac, my advice? Just get a game on another system, you’ll definitely get way more enjoyment out of it.
Buy this game, SO close to 5 stars
GET THIS GAME
This game actualy exceded my expectations. I have bought all maxis games, many hits and few misses. this version Knock it out of the park. i have the highest end customizable macbookpro that was available last march. I have done a side by side comparison with the MBP HighSIERRA MacOs (the new OSX) and my ASUS Video production pc with windows on with several drives and different versions win 7 dark, 8.2, and 10, even though the ASUS Has a HIGHER END GPU Card ( Nvidia Card) and 2 quad 64bit processers, my Quad 64bit 16GB Ram with a 500Gig flash drive and an AMD w/ 3GB of its own ram plus the built intel iris pro (the MBP) TOO MY AMAZEMENT RUNS SO MUCH BETTER, SO SMOOTH, LOADS SO FAST, IS SO MUCH FATER AND LOOKS TO MY amazement SO GREAT and Hugley better than it does on the ASUS republic of gamers machine. I was surprised Thrilled and enjoy it immensely THIS IS A MUST BUY, JUST MAKE SURE YOU MEET /EXCEDE THE MIN REQS.
THE ONLY AREA FOR IMPROVEMENT IS TO PROVIDE ALL THE EP’s and SP’s like APARTMENT LIFE, FREETIME, MANSIONS ETC. **I have all of those on my pc but I prefer the Look and Speed of the game In this version, I no longer am playing on my windows machines, Just my macs because it is so superior BUY IT you wont be sorry***
that said :
PLEASE ADD THE MISING EXPANSION PACKS AND STUFF PACKS, MacOs is obviously where these games belong and the lack of them is the ONLY REASON for Not giving 5 Stars
