First time EVER I’ve been able to fully enjoy Sims 2!
Truly, today is one of those “Mark this day in my gaming history” moments for me, as this is the very first time ever I have actually been able to play Sims 2 without the computer freezing, crashing, or parts of the game taking forever to load - even the install process was quick and easy. Not once did my macbook become overheated or hot to touch. It did not drain my battery either -played for about 3 hours straight and I still had a good 45% battery life left. Overall, a fantastic value with the bonus expansion packs, and a lot of fun to play the classic game again.
I am so excited to get into this game. I was blown away by the graphics as soon as I launched it. It’s as stunning as the Sims 4! I’ve grown up playing console and handheld versions of the Sims, but I have just recently started playing the Mac versions. I started with downloading the Sims 3 and various expansion packs through Origin, and the game lags and I have to keep the graphics on the lowest setting just to run it. This game runs beautifully, and the cost is unbeatable. I totally recommend it! Thank you Aspyr Media! It would be awesome if you guys developed the original the Sims like this so old and new simmers alike can get a feel for where it all began! :D
I do love this game, even after twenty plus years.
I have plaid various versions of Sim City, SimTower and now The Sims (on and off) since the mid nineties (“DOS/Windows 3"days). I’ve plaid various knockoffs as well. However, nothing eles is Sim.
My only dismay with this game is how it runs in full screen. When it does, I cannot swipe back to the desktop as I can with other applications. In other words, its “full screen” occupies the (entire) desktop. That is, somewhat, annoying.
The heart of the game is very much the same as was in SimTower in 1995. The change of day/night (time realization) season changes, etc. And, yes, this is a game you have to “Tend”. But that’s the real fun of it.
