Software Overview

Electronic Arts The Sims 2 is the sequel to the popular "Sims" game that started the franchise. The game revolves around creating and controlling the lives of human "sims."

The Sims 2 features life simulation gameplay where you play "God" and get to control one or more virtual lifeforms. You start by creating a sim and customizing everything from its gender to body type to hair style to tattoos. You can directly manipulate every move your sims make and with their memories and awareness, the sims remember and react to other Sims.

The game allows you to install expansion packs and stuff packs, which are minor expansion packs. These packs provide additional game features and items including weather systems, vacations in different cultural areas, own able pets, relationship states, and universities. You can also purchase stuff packs which provide add-ons such as holiday items, luxury objects, and wedding themed fashions. "Bon Voyage" was the last expansion pack released for Mac OS X and "Apartment Life" was the last for Windows. The last stuff pack for Mac OS X was "Happy Holiday Stuff" and for Windows was "Mansion & Garden Stuff."

The Sims 2 is a fun sequel to the ultra popular original that improved the gameplay and allowed you to play with a friend in split-screen two-player mode. If you enjoy the first "Sims" release then you will most likely love this second installment. However, because of the age of Electronic Arts' The Sims 2, you may just want to skip it and go on to later Sims releases.
