Rated 1 out of 10 by Dont buy this game DO NOT BUY
I bought this game thinking it would be fun. Trust me this is probably the worst sims game ever. I bought it, played it, returned it all in three days. I didn't beat it though. I ddn't even want to try though. Some of the good things are that you have a cell phone, and you automatically get a house. Some of the bad things are that the game is boring the minigames are terrible, and the storyline is stupid. After the few days that I had the game I did return it. With the store credit and a little bit of pocket money i bought the sims 2 for play staion 2. I am much happier with this one instead of the psp version. And also if you are still thinking about getting the game after reading this review, let me tell you this. I bought the game for a few main reasons. One of them was so that i could build my on house and customize it. NO! You can't even do that. Thanks for reading my review and i hoped it changed your point of view. DO NOT GET THIS GAME.

It's the sims 2 which means it has to be at least okay which is what this game is; okay. The story mode is horrible and it's all you got. There is no free play. In most sims games you get a job and go out in a car pool and you have fun. In this your job is collecting secrets, sounds fun? I don't think so either. It is on multiplayer, but you don't play with the other person, you trade secrets. Buy the sims 2 but on another system like ps2 or gamecube. Don't buy it for a portable system! There are minigames but they're more annoying then fun. I got it, played it and got pretty far but the whole time I was wondering if the store would give me my money back. When you first play it it's kinda fun, but unlike the other sims that STAY fun this one doesn't. Overall it's bad and if you're thinking of buying it don't, buy it for a different system.
Rated 10 out of 10 by REALlavaster Very Fun and Challenging!
The Sims 2 for PSP is incredibly fun and has challenges. I don't like playing social games (but that's just me) but the Smack-a-Ghoul minigame is my favorite minigame! Anyways, if you play for hours almost non-stop, you could probably beat this game in one day. I loved how you're supposed to talk to other sims to solve challenges, it's just the chatting, flirting, and intimidation social games that I don't like having to do. I recommend this to teens, young adults, and adults that are casual gamers, like simulation games, or just love The Sims 2! Beware: you cannot have kids and there is a very small limit as to how much furniture you can put in your Estate. (The house you have.) Also, after beating the game and learning all the secrets and completing goals, the game gets boring cuz all there's left to do are minigames and social games.

I really love almost every sims game i played but this game was kinda pathetic. I bought it thinkin it was goin to be as good or better then the Sims. Not even close. All the things we had to do were very easy there was absolutely no challenge to it. Every thing was very easy to do. Its like game for slow people dont even know what their doin. The game was very short too. The graphics were alright and the talkin thing was cool too but it made it take longer to load. The chat game was kinda easier to people to like u and get secrets from them too, i think those are the only good things about this video game. So if you are the kind of person who likes the challenging sim games do not buy this one. you should spend your money a different sims game. for example get the one on Computer or playstation they are much better.
Rated 10 out of 10 by nintendo_wii94 The Good, the Bad, the Ugly
Overall, The Sims 2 for PSP is a great game. The silliness of Sims and their actions never get old. The good part of the game is the graphics, gameplay, conversations and things like that. The bad parts of the game, I think, are fulfilling your Sims needs. I've passed out so many times, I've stop even trying to fulfill my needs. I just get 500 simoleons taken out of my pockets or become a ghost. The real 'ugly' part of the game is, and you've heard it all before, loading times. Loading happens with everything you do. Sometimes it loads in the middle of walking. Sometimes the effect at the end of conversations (romance level 4 for example) won't happen. But I'm not saying you shouldn't get the game because the loading times. Its a great game and you'll have a blast playing it.
Rated 4 out of 10 by Kiyomitsu Horrible, just horrible. Id' rather bang my head against the wall
Five words...Do Not Buy This Game! You will be wasting your money on it. The speed on this game is horrible, to move one step it takes forever to load. Every time you step outside or inside you hit a loading screen. It all takes away from the joy of the game. I actually think that the game would have some potential if it didn't take so long to do everything. Besides that the game's storyline (if you can call it that) is strange and pointless, i prefer the PC Sims games that allows you to control the world rather than one person. This game takes away from the whole feel of the PC versions, it's just not worth your time. So take my advice and steer clear of this game the next time you go out to buy something, seriously it's a very big disappointment.
Rated 8 out of 10 by DJM ok..
I've been a big fan of the Sims series, I always play on the PC, so when i got this for christmas. I thought cool. The game is really fun especially for vactaions, etc. This game controls seem pretty complicated but you have to read the manual and go throguh the tuttorial to understand the concepts and the controls of the game, to make it more fun. In the game it may get hard to get more money when you are really low on cash, so you will most lokiely are gonna need cheats especially if you have alot of family members and hardly any space. So this game is pretty fun, it's not the PC version but it still has many of it's features. I hope they make a Sims 3 for the PSP and they will need to make a lot more changes in it to make it sucessful. Thank You
Rated 3 out of 10 by THEGAMER423 Don't Get This Game.
I do not recommend you to get The Sims 2 for PSP. It is the most boring campaign i have ever played. All i wanted to do was build! But things kept getting in my way! The game play went nowhere and was a complete waste of time and money. There are certain jobs that you have to do and they are a pain to do. You also continually get moved to different buildings you don't want to go to and you can't even build! Whatever you do do not get this game.
Rated 10 out of 10 by axmob It's fun.
I love this game, it is so great. The storyline is awesome, It's like a big mission. I also find this game very creepy, but in a good way. It's the best Sims game i have ever played. But it's the sims for the PSP. Great game!
