I'm not sure what I expected really, but this game really let me down. There's nothing really new here! If you own a past sims game, then you don't really need this, unless the enhanced graphics(And trust me on this, they ARE enhanced!) is a "Must buy" reason.
The series just seems to be getting stale, and they are releasing sequels for the sake of having sequels at this point. They don't bring anything new to the table, just increased system requirements. Honestly? You would be better off with sims 2 or 3. It's cheaper, and offers the same thing.

If you have the creative mind to build homes and then live in them, then this is the game for you. It is an amazing game to play and gets really addicting. I stayed up all night when i started playing, couldn't resist the fun. Give this game a 8/10 only because it does not have pools. For those who say is bad, don't listen to them. The game just came out and still has over 100 expansions to be released!

Some things have been left out, eg: Toddlers, Carrying your baby, Pools, create a style, and open world, I feel that this game is a great game. Some of these things were necessary to take out such as open world because if you keep an open world it lags your game by rendering a lot of un-needed items, also create a style was probably removed due to the amount of textures that needed to be loaded. Overall I love the game, the overhauled Build Mode and Create a Sim are the focal features as well as all of the new emotions.
TL:DR Sims 4 is a great game, if you're willing to look past a few downsides and the price.
PS: Take advantage of this sale GMG has going! It makes the game even more worth it!

There have been many people complaining about the lack of features not in the game as well as the loading screens and small world. I am disappointing about all of those but the game is still fun and good. It loads much faster than Sims 3 ever did and it saves faster as well. You can still navigate through the neighborhood you are in without a loading screen but when you do encounter a loading screen, they are very quick, 30 seconds top. The gameplay is much smoother than The Sims 3 ever was. The lack of features and careers is a let down but just like any other Sims game, they come with the DLC. I give this an overall rating of 84.

Fairly underwhelmed by the game in general. Graphically is looks like a polished up Sims 3 and the art style seemingly changed slightly, for the better. Creating your character is an improvement although a little clunky. The game play itself leaves a lot to be desired. I was really hoping for another breakout amazing game that i could pour hundreds of hours into like i did with Sims 2 and 3 both came out. I will be lucky if i hit 20 hours with Sims 4. It isn't necessary a horrible game but it doesn't feel like they actually put nearly the amount of time they claim into the game. In many cases I kept thinking they grabbed the Sims 3 updated the graphics, added emotions, and then sent it off. Many of the things that made the series grow have disappeared such as the whole "open world" feeling. The game also seems to be lacking items and building options that i can't fathom why they removed them from the game. Overall i'm pretty unsatisfied with the game. I can't call it a complete flop but i see no reason why i would continue playing Sims 4 when i already own 3 with multiple expansions.
