The Sims: That Started It All...
Penetrate the madcap world of The Sims. It has been some time since the launch
of The Sims, yet 5 expansion pack releases later, Iím writing a small review
about the ground breaking game we know as The Sims.
This game puts you solely in charge of a household, the contents, and most
importantly, the inhabitants. If youíre the bossy kind of individual with plenty
of aggression to vent, you should love this game. Right from the very start of
this game you are made a god with a mission which is to keep your Sims happy,
rolling in the green and full of creativity. None of these goals are going to be
easy to fulfil and accomplishing them will take a whole host of factors to be
just right. Such as their job, their mood, their social life and even down to
what type of house they live in because like anyone of us, they like a few
classy items in their homes and a little bit of originality.
Maxis have a reputation of developing games which donít have an end to, the kind

already got all the items from the official website (beware of the blue clock
and do not place it by the fire place under no circumstances) you can still find
hundreds, maybe thousands on fan websites. However, if you encounter a little
hamster, do not download it for I have heard many tales of it killing peoples
Sims. If you must have a pet, the recently released Sims Unleashed (good pun in
there) expansion pack gives you the ability to own pets such as cats, dogs,
hamsters (I think) among many others.
Off the top of my head, the current expansions are:

This game is a great title from Maxis and Electronic Arts that is a must buy for
the bossy and angry people (and everyone else) not forgetting for those people
who like playing god (you know you do really). With so many updates it is hard
to become bored with the game. Take note that you should not expect to be able
to jump into the game and have an easy time with your Sim. You may even have to
restart your game several times before you even begin to get things right and
even then; things could take a while before your Sim starts to live life to the
Now Iím off to see if my The Sims Online beta-test discs are here. I think Iíll
