The Sims Medieval
this looks awesooooooooooooooooooooome!!!!!!!!!!!!
this is gonna be great but i think they should make some sort of mixture of "sims" and "civilization" i think that would be very intresting and maybe get bilions out of it, as i assume this game will get
I've been a huge Sims fan since the first Sims and this game is everything I've been saying they needed to have in a game since the Sims 2. Sword fighting, elves, throwing tomatoes at Sims, what more could I ask for? Yes, there are some things that can be improved upon like camera angles and such but I'm sure that will change with later patches. Overall I think that the Sims Medieval is the greatest game yet, but that's my opinion. The graphics are wonderful, the music is delightful, and for me it probably will not ever get old. If you love sword fights, magic, and the Medieval ages like I do then this is probably the game for you. I'd say that the only drawback for me would be that the game actually "ends", though you can always restart. It's not the Sims in a traditional sense but change is always fun. I don't mind that the Sims don't age, though some people do. It seems that most everyone either loves it or hates it so it's up to you to decide for yourself.
I love the idea, can't wait!!
Being a huge fan of the sims and owning them all, I look for any new twist. The reason I can see this being a great RP is knowing what their current engines are capable of. I always thought to myself, how cool would it be if they took the sims current build and turned it into something else? Something exactly like Sims Medieval !!! I can't wait, it's going to be silly, fun, and just a whole new take on the sims overall. I say well done devs, I can't wait to try it!
OMG! It's not just a rumor! I'm a medieval geek! I can't wait! :D
3/1/11 can't get here soon enough
This is like the best news I have heard all yr. I love the Sims, and I love anything medieval so for EA to combine them, well all I can say is... I am going to have such a great birthday this march...thats right my birthday is in march!! and I know what I am getting <smiles> can't wait :)
It's not just the neighborhood anymore
I love the idea of building my own neighborhoods from scratch, but I had never thought about having my own kingdom. Sims Medeval has surely surprised me with the twist. My guess is that it'll be the same format as the sims 3, but with medeval themes. I still think you have to "build up" in your careers, and I love how one thing effects everyone. I hope to marry my hero. <3 I really wish it came out to console instead, considering how many sims 3 lovers already have SO much on their computers already. I'd be surprised if this game doesn't crash them all. I'm considering about buying it, however, I have a problem with the PC and any games on the PC. I just don't enjoy sitting at the computer playing games, verses laying in bed freely playing Sims 3 on my PS3. Plus, I think medeval would be better-portrayed with the graphics of the PS3 (or Xbox, for that matter). Not to mention the amount of trophies that could be won.
I want to buy it but...
I really wanted to buy this sooooo much, but I just found out that its not generational. Meaning that if my sims had a baby in the game they wouldn't grow. One of the best things I love about the sims is that I can watch the babies grow into their own person, with my help of course ;). But now that I found this out it puts a damper on this game. However I love the fact that I can do quests and create my own kingdom. So I'll probably order it and see how it goes. Maybe in the future there will be a cheat to make the babies grow :)
Meh... It's cool.
It has a lot of potential to be fantastic but all the little things bug me. Some of the quests are impossible. There were a few where the item I was looking for was just nonexistent or a clue made no sense. I bought the Prima Game Guide and that has helped tremendously though.
Kids don't grow up an take over the throne like you'd think. The build/buy mode is very limited, and you can't really build anything so far. The camera rotation is awkward and doesn't really allow you to see everything unless you know the hot keys and such. And I got thrown in jail because I couldn't find a stuffed bear that was "supposedly" in the throne room.... :(
It definitely keeps your attention though. I played a few hours and my mother spent the whole afternoon it released, nearly all of yesterday, and now is playing it this morning lol. I really love the quest games and I would still reccomend it to anyone who does, but know it will take some getting used to.
Great game but seriously poor support from EA.
I got this game for my birthday and I fell in love with it. Being the first Sims game I've had for the computer, I found it extremely fun. However this game has many bugs and issues. Unfortunately Ea has put an end to TSM and won't be releasing any patches for bugs and issues (really bad move for Ea). A big reason why I only put 6 points for game play. Many of the bugs are annoying and can make game play difficult, because of this I haven't been playing it as often and I'm also questioning if its worth it to purchase the only expansion pack for this game. However it is a great game, the graphics are beautiful and well done. If you like the Sims games, I'm sure you will like this one. You just have to decided if its worth buying since Ea isn't offering support of any kind for this game.
My 2 Problems; Otherwise, I Loved It
I bought Sims 3 when it launched. I wasn't all that interested in World Adventures and Ambitions (I am interested in Late Night just haven't purchased yet) so this is the first expansion (FYI It's a stand alone game not an addition to Sims 3) I've purchased since the original. While I did like the "fatal flaw" additon, I HATED only being able to choose 2 traits instead of the 5 in Sims 3. I also hate that we can't build a property like we can in Sims 3. On the other hand, I actually like the fact that sims don't age or grow up; although, I can imagine that will turn off many Sims 3 fans.
