You can’t beat a bit of god com­plex. And who does that bet­ter than the Sims? We’ve been pulling the strings on the strange Sim­lish-speak­ing char­ac­ters’ lives for some time now, tak­ing them through dates and pet own­er­ship and even the odd alien in­va­sion. At E3 ear­lier this year, EA showed off the lat­est in­stal­la­tion, the Sims 4, promis­ing it would be the Sims as you’d never played them be­fore, with the Sims now get­ting their own per­son­al­i­ties and emo­tions, mak­ing in­ter­ac­tions with other game char­ac­ters more un­pre­dictable than be­fore. It’s that ad­di­tion though that makes The Sims 4 worth play­ing; other tweaks, such as an im­proved Sim cre­ation tool, will make life eas­ier but won’t blow you away. You get the im­pres­sion there’s more to come - more than likely in the form of the usual ex­pan­sion packs.
