GamesBeat’s The Sims 4 Review is a Virtual Masterpiece

The iconic virtual jaunt returns and although a little on the light side, it's still The Sims.

The iconic virtual jaunt returns and although a little on the light side, it’s still The Sims.

The Sims is an iconic, even legendary, name in the annals of video game history. It’s undoubtedly one of the most popular as well, so when The Sims 4 launched, a whole lot of fans were aching to get their virtual groove on.

However, while it’s still every bit a Sims experience, it does feel a little empty, as many critics have already indicated. For perhaps the most comprehensive and informative review out there, you should check out GamesBeat’s excellent analysis. Critic Heather Newman tackles just about ever conceivable gameplay element and captures the essence of a simulated excursion.

Nicely paced, featuring accessible formatting and the necessary level of expertise, this is a review well worth reading.

If you're a fan, you'll probably be satisfied, provided you aren't expecting too much.

Why We Like It:

— The “What You’ll Like” and “What You Won’t Like” sections are extremely well-appointed and offer a detailed yet condensed set of highlights and low-lights.

— The review understands the nature of this franchise and focuses on elements like content (and missing content), stability, customization, etc. This shows an appropriate level of knowledge.

Solid writing and expansive, without being overly wordy. The critic effectively combines concise mini-evaluations with an overarching analysis, and that’s worth praising.

Congrats, Heather!

HA. The Sims still exists? 😉

I used to love these games. And yes, I’m a girl. 🙂

Something happened though…I just don’t care about them anymore. I like to tell my friends that I play “real games” now. LOL
