  1. Okay

    The quality of the game isn't as good as I'd had hoped it to be and it can admittedly get a little tedious and dull to play with no expansion packs but regardless of that it's a decent game.

  2. The peak of Sims.

    Sims 2 was amazing and the Sims 3 not only added to it but creating something entirely better. Unfortunatly I don't think we'll ever get that with the Sims 4 and probably ever again since the developer continually gets worse. If you want the PEAK of Sims. It's the Sims 3.
