Know what The Sims video games are all about? For all three of you who don't, they're virtual people simulators that let you create and control a family. Whether they're getting jobs, dating, adding a new room to the house or just watchin' TV - they're your virtual family and you control their lives. These digital peeps have been addicting gamers for years with the awesome Sims video game for PC. Now The Sims 2 has dropped. We have the 411 on the new game in this game review!

The Sims 2 - Sim-ply Spectacular Stuff

If you want new stuff for your Sim family, it's all here! The biggest deal is that the Sims have gone 3D. Now you can move the camera around inside your Sims' house and around their neighborhood. On top of the stylin' new look, your Sims can grow old, have kids and the kids can grow into Sim adults who can have kids of their own. Now you can raise whole families of Sims from babies to grandparents! The third big thing is the built-in movie-making program that lets you make Sim-movies with your virtual people.

Something Rotten in the Sims 2 Video Game

All the cool new stuff in The Sims 2 rocks, but there are some problems. The biggest problem is that The Sims 2 is a humongous game! It takes up about 3 Gigabytes of space on your hard drive, that's enough space for 1,000 mp3s, 1,500,000 school reports or the entire Lemony Snicket series of books 1,200 times. It also takes a computer with some power to run smoothly.

The Sims 2 - Welcome to the Neighborhood?

The Sims 2 video game is a steal of a deal. With one game you get an entire virtual world to play with, plus there'll be expansions galore from EA that will give you even more options. If there's room for it on your 'puter, The Sims 2 will keep you in gaming goodness for years.
