A Sims 4 Xbox review for The Average Noob

The Sims 4 is the fourth major title in life simulation video game series The Sims, developed by Maxis and The Sims Studio and published by Electronic Arts. The Sims 4 was originally announced on May 6, 2013, and was released in North America on September 2, 2014 for Microsoft Windows. A Mac compatible version of the game was made available for digital download on February 17, 2015. The Sims 4 is the first PC game to top all-format charts in two years. The game has received mixed reviews since its release, with the majority of criticism directed towards its lack of content. Since its launch, it became the best selling PC game of 2014 and 2015. As of October 2016, The Sims 4 has sold over 5 million copies worldwide. Versions of the game for the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One consoles were released on November 17, 2017.


The game has the same concept as its predecessor, The Sims 3; players control their Sims in various activities and can form relationships. The game, like most of the series, does not have a defined final goal; gameplay is nonlinear. The Create-a-Sim and Build Mode tools have been redesigned to allow more versatility when creating game content. Emotional state plays a larger role in game play than in previous games in the series, with effects on social interaction, user interface, and personality.

On November 17, 2017 is the date console received yet another pc left-over. Yes, left-over as in you having a mega large family that comes over for a grand dinner and what is not eaten is raped up put in a fridge and served as lunch for school work and late-night snacks. In this case were talking about EA, after making all the dollars they can off the PCers and 3 years later when sales go down EA sales to console gamer for full price as if it was September 2, 2014 all over again. That my friend is good old fashion American business. Now I’m not saying Sims 4 is not worth it, but, it does show that consoles are the red head step sister of the PC yes now the black sheep of the gaming family when it comes to business.

Well enough of my


   Game play 9/10 The Sims game play has not changed much, as always go at your own pace or faster witch is totally up to you. You make a sim, make or buy a home, get a job, learn crafts and have a family the choice is yours. There is a lot you can do. The world is your own. But you will find the occasional glitch or bug that can off set things a little.


   Noob Friendly 9/10 The control have changed from the last 3 Sims games, you will find yourself using the controller more like a computer mouse but it’s not too shabby. Making your 1st Sim is still pretty easy. Sims also has an in game tutorial that is very helpful.


Visualization 8/10 Sims 4 is very cartoony and child like making it a nice family game. Camera is a bit of and sometimes sticky. Changing views can be a bit of a hassle till you get used to it (when you don’t play for some time you have to get used to all over it again) but all in all it still has that nice worm playful look from the past game.



  Customization 8/10 Ok I would of gave the Sims a cool 10 if they had kept the coloring and pattern customizations from Sims 3 and I miss driving the sloppy jalopy. So now you’re stuck with only what is given to you as for colors and patterns. Believe me if you played Sims 3 these like other things are missed. But there are lots cool aspects of the game that are made to make customizing easier.

Competitiveness -/- Everything you do is alone there is no PVP of any kind They took away the Sims community. With less customization there is no need to create and share your work for others to download and use like they once had in Sims 3. So as close as you can get to PVP is a good old single in game SIMS FIGHT!!!


  Commercialization 7/10 Sims 4 has been out for some time on PC and is treated as new game to the Xbox in a business sense, so you will be asked to pay for the game as new and the DLCs. Now that there is no coloring and pattern customizations and they throughout the Sims community sharing now you are forced to except what they give you and pay for. Its still a fun thing with out the extra stuff but to have or do more you will have to pay.


. In all Is a good game to play for all age and family settings. So, with that said I feel Sims 4 deserves to be graded B+





This is only my opinion hopefully this will help you in your search of what is best for you and your family and what you’re looking for in a game. If there is any games you would like me to look into and give my opinion please feel free to message me
