Today, Playfish launched the long anticipated Facebook application, The Sims Social. The success of the original Sims games for PC and game consoles made this an anticipated app. However, when it was released today, many people wanted to get in. And this led to people getting the “Bad Gateway” sign. It also showed the “technical difficulty” sign as well. But I got in finally, and here is a summary of the Sims Social.
Now if you get in finally, the “Create a Sim” process is very easy. Like previous Sims
games, you can fully customize your Sim from their hair to clothes. You don’t get to choose that many traits though. But this process is relatively easy.
I was a bit disappointed with gameplay, because I’ve played the Sims 3 before. The graphics aren’t as good, and you don’t get a “Town Map” which means you really don’t have a job. But the purpose of this game was to socialize with your friends.
Interaction was OK. You can visit your friends, interact with them (like chat, argue, etc). And when you’re at home, you get the basics such as use the computer, cook, sleep, and more.
The music for this is the regular Sims 3 music. So that’s nice.
So overall, it would be pretty good if you’ve never played the Sims before. However, if you’re a Sim player, this might seem a bit disappointing, but it’s a good game for social interaction.
Below is a simple screenshot of the game when you start out.
