Guide Review - The Sims - PS2

It was bound to happen sooner or later. Sim evil is now available on your PS2.

Don't get me wrong, this is a sweet game. It takes everything good about the PC version and makes it better. Better graphics, sound, play modes. It's one of the best conversions yet.

The downside is, it's still evil. You will be late for work, you will neglect your loved ones. If you introduce the game to your loved ones then they will neglect you. You won't sleep, you won't eat, and you won't pick up after yourself, because you are too busy trying to get your Sims to do menial tasks that you no longer have time to do in the real world.

Yes the PS2 version of The Sims is good, but it's also evil. Buy it, then hide it from yourself. You'll thank me later.
