Diving Deep: Journey Into The Sims 4

The Sims 4 released on the PC last week, nearly one year after it was first revealed. The lead-up to its release was a flurry of mixed emotions from longtime fans of the series; between concern over missing features (compared to Sims 1-3), the shift from an open world to single lot environment, the small introductory neighborhood size and more.

While I've certainly invested a lot of time into many other series such as EverQuest, Elder Scrolls and Civilization, the Sims franchise takes the cake for having devoted hundreds (or more *cough*) of my life to. I've been playing The Sims longer than any of my children have been alive (the eldest of which will be able to get his driver's permit next year). Let's just say my excitement for the announcement of The Sims 4 included many exclaimation points, and after my first 49 hours of playing it, I'm quite happy with the game, despite its spotty issues and omitted features.

This review is going to be extremely lengthy and touch on every aspect I've experienced thus far.

The Sims 4: Extended Gameplay Video

Over the weekend Maxis released a video showcasing The Sims 4 demo that was shown to press at this year's E3 (check out our retrospective here). Narrated by Sims 4 producers Graham Nardone and Ryan Vaughan, you can check out almost 20 minutes of gameplay, from the Create-a-Sim (CAS) mode through a very strange house party. The demo is from a one-month-old beta build of the game, so there may be some bugs or changes from what is shown prior to release.

The Sims 4: Build Mode Gameplay Trailer

Two weeks ago, Maxis released their Create-a-Sim trailer for The Sims 4, and yesterday they followed up that preview with the release of a spectacular Build Mode video! The improved build mode allows for faster and more flexible building, and is more forgiving of building errors. Ever forget to put down a foundation before in The Sims 3? Maxis has you covered.

The Sims 4: Create-a-Sim Gameplay Video

Between The Sims, The Sims 2, The Sims Medieval and The Sims 3, I've poured hundreds of hours of my life into Maxis' wonderful titles. Over the past year alone I've spent 360 hours on The Sims 3, with a decent chunk of that time divided between the Create-a-Sim (CAS) and building modes.

Yesterday, Maxis revealed their CAS feature for The Sims 4, due out later this year. The tools you are given allow you more versitility, precision and choice over bringing your sim to life.
