The Sims™ 4
The Sims Brand family is increased with another member – there is the 4th edition of this cult simulation & strategy game which can easily be downloaded on Playstation4. Create your own virtual world, sculpt unique and intelligent characters, concoct and design homes for your Sims, explore neighborhoods, visit secret venues, set your own rules, and do what you are not generally allowed to do in real life – the Sims 4 is meant to give you unlimited freedom!
The first and biggest allure behind The Sims 4 is its astonishing, extraordinarily detailed graphics. Characters are simply amazing: they are full-sized, exceptionally beautiful, and, most importantly, have incredibly realistic physiques. All Sims have distinct, clear faces and players can edit the smallest detail in the characters’ appearances (even the number of tattoos and distance between eyes when adjusting a new Sim’s complexion!). In the fourth sequel of the Sims, characters have a more lively behavior compared to the predecessor, they move absolutely naturally and do not look fake as in previous game releases. What is more, they can multitask!
The second point to highlight in this Sims 4 review is its gameplay. Though the game was launched 17 years ago, its essence remained the same – managing daily life of your virtual “pets”, which includes everything from feeding and entertaining to finding them a job and helping them to socialize.
The Sims 4 is an open-world game, and its heroes are imitations of real humans: they make friends, fall in love, foster children, visit public places, explore nearby locations... There is no ultimate objective for a player to achieve in the game, because a real life hardly has it, too. You are free to do with your Sims literally anything – experiments have never been so welcome. Just keep your creation alive by fulfilling their everyday needs – this is what the game was designed for.
However, characters in the Sims 4 do have their own life goals, but these will depend on behavioral attributes (personality) which you apply for your Sim. These attributes will determine how the Sim will interact with others in the game. Your character can be romantic, creative, cheerful, and whatever you want.
But modeling people and running their lives is not the only thing you need to do in the Sims 4. Constructing an ideal dwelling for your virtual character is important, too. The game provides endless possibilities to craft and constantly improve the Sims’ homes leading them to perfection.
Once the application is downloaded and installed (users state the installation process takes less than a minute provided there is a stable Internet connection), you will discover that playing the Sims 4 is easy and fun.
You can choose either from template models or create your character from scratch and improve it to your utmost satisfaction.
