Just play sims 3Neurolost | Aug. 2, 2015 | See all Neurolost's reviews »
The updated features in the Sims 4 are nice but fail to compensate for what is lost between the two versions. The game suffers heavily from the lack of an open world. The updated create-a-sim and home building features are nice but the actual gameplay is dry. The new emotions feature is essentially irrelevant and barely impacts my gameplay. The game feels thinner without the open world, and the whole scenario is less interesting. I don't dislike the game, but I would recommend you play the sims 3 instead.
Updated graphics, but not much elseMadDemon64 | July 7, 2015 | See all MadDemon64's reviews »
The Sims 4 is not much of an update. All it really does is update the graphics, but everything else is the same as it was in The Sims 3. Except for the things that The Sims 3 that The Sims 4 does not. If you have played The Sims 3, you have played The Sims 4. The only stuff you get that’s new is better graphics. Everything else is just the same as it was in The Sims 3. You will still be controlling characters the same way you did in The Sims 3, doing the same stuff you did in The Sims 3. However, as is traditional with EA games these days, The Sims 4 comes with less features than are currently available in The Sims 3 (DLC features that is). Unless graphics are that much of a selling point to you, do not buy The Sims 4 just yet. Or do and install mods (honestly that’s probably what you would have done if you owned The Sims 3 anyway).

I have been thoroughly enjoying sims 4 and believe it is just as fun as Sims 3. At first many functions were missing (pools and ghosts), but EA has added a lot of items in patches like the two above. Yes, it is still missing toddlers and large towns, but they are a small price to pay for the much faster loading times of Sims 4 according to Sims 3. Sims 4 will fully load and start on my laptop in under two minutes. Add that with the new build, buy, and create-a-sim modes and personalities to make Sims 4 a good game that is steadily improving.

Many people say the game is a disappointment. Well, I think it is a pretty good game. It could be better but remember, all the other sims weren't as fascinating at first either. I recommend the game to anyone. You just have to unlock features which also give you A LOT of game play. I thought it sucked at first until i discovered a lot of hidden features.
Loving this game!iZombieLexxi | Dec. 19, 2014 | See all iZombieLexxi's reviews »
I absolutely adore The Sims 4. It seems as though people keep forgetting it's a BASE GAME. Even so, with all the FREE content we're getting it's great. They've added many things back into the game that people were complaining about. The building features of this game are spectacular. Instead of taking hours building one tiny, little house in The Sims 3; you can spend less time building, furnishing, decorating and well, the whole sha-bang, in The Sims 4. It a lot less time consuming. Another feature I enjoy is the multitasking. Your sims can do up to three things at once! If your sim has work in a few, no need to fret. You can eat, watch tv AND talk about how much you hate your job to another sim! There are sooooo many great, new features in The Sims 4. On top of all that, the game rarely ever lags. Once I start playing, I have to play for at least 2-3 hours at a time! It's so addicting and amazing.
