Review: the sims 4: Why were the players disappointed

Released on september 2014, The Sims 4, being a sequel to the massive sims 3, was a very much anticipated game.

The game however recieved sharp criticism from a big part of the player base for several reasons.
To start with, She Sims 4 offers less focus on content and more focus into graphics, the AI of the other sims is still.. questionnable and was not really improved. As for progressing, it's still as easy to get married in the sims within 10 minutes and to reach the career top within 2 days of gameplay. On top of that the game loses some major features such as toddler sims, patterns customizing and free world navigation.

Wether the exclusion of these features was intended by the developers or to be left out for later paid content, or in order to make rushed deadlines remains questionnnable.

On the other hand, the game does still offer interesting and somehow addictive gameplay and is already expanding with several expansion packs.
