Actually, I found having a vegetarian that liked to exercise actually made them live longer than my easily entertained "stoner" sim.erbkaiser said:"Like The Sims 3, each Sim under your control has two traits and one flaw and these determine how it goes about its business."
I just wish TS3 worked that way - or are you referring to the console version which I am not familiar with?. In the PC version at least you there have five traits from which you can freely pick, with no reason other than sheer sadism to pick bad ones. The only limitation there is that some are mutually exclusive (e.g. Good vs Evil).
I'd recommend waiting for a price drop. To me it feels like a game you'd pay $30 for, not $50. There's no building to speak of, and a lot less customization and freedom in general, so it has considerably less longevity than other Sims games, IMHO.AC10 said:
wait in so many ways, like until it's free, this game is so buggy, they didn't have no-where near enough time to finish making it, and it's repeatative sleep inducing game play is... I don't have a rude enough word to discribe!AC10 said:
I say wait for a price drop. Personally, I love the game and am too much of a zombie fan of The Sims franchise not to have it pre-ordered. But if you can wait it out, getting it cheaper would probably be best.AC10 said:
Oh, man that sucks!Glic2003 said:-"All of gameplay elements [from The Sims]" are definitely not "preserved"; for many players, building houses and raising families was a major part of the gameplay, and The Sims Medieval does not allow either.
Wait for it, I was interested in it up until I played it, not that it's a bad game, because all of the features that could make it a great one are there, but it boils down to boring quest after boring quest.AC10 said:
I'm getting the impression that it's not the gameplay of the Sims that puts you off, but that fact that it represents modern life. Indeed, for someone who seeks escapism, the Sims might seem boring because it doesn't feature dragons, alien invasions, or other "exciting" things.cplsharp said:to be fair i never really fancied this game from when i hear about it, the sims for me raises the question as to why you would want to make your character go to the toilet, when you most likely have a fully usable toilet in your own home. though i can see this one might tug some interest strings as its not just house building and kid making.
^ this is a reason to buy lol, "i dont need to piss, im iron sim." but yeh i can see why people would want to play it, im just not really into escapism in games unless its one like red dead where the world is phenomenal to look at and explore.Da_Vane said:Talk about bladders of steel!
Oh man. That's EXACTLY how I felt when I played it. And I mean, exactly, right down to the word "ghastly." How did they manage to omit all of the parts I liked about The Sims 3 while simultaneously maintaining everything I hated about it?Phalene said:Oh my god. I just finished trying this game and it's absolutely ghastly. A boring click-fest, combining all the dull micromanagement of the Sims with none of the fun, playful sandbox part....
It is definitely a bunch of stupid mundane quests that don't add up to anything.Sabiancym said:So does this game have a decent storyline? Or is it just a bunch of stupid mundane quests that really don't add up to anything?
I have a hard time believing the story will be interesting considering the sims don't speak english (or any real language for that matter).
