First time EVER I’ve been able to fully enjoy Sims 2! - Truly, today is one of those “Mark this day in my gaming history” moments for me, as this is the very first time ever I have actually been able to play Sims 2 without the computer freezing, crashing, or parts of the game taking forever to load - even the install process was quick and easy. Not once did my macbook become overheated or hot to touch. It did not drain my battery either -played for about 3 hours straight and I still had a good 45% battery life left. Overall, a fantastic value with the bonus expansion packs, and a lot of fun to play the classic game again.

Review by A.A.E.

Wish I could give an accurate review - I was very excited to see that this was here, and so many expansions were offered. However, I was very disappointed to find the I cannot actually install the game, even though it has been purchased. I click “install” and the farthest I get is it changing to “waiting”. It never actually begins to intall. Hoping the problem will be solved soon.

Review by Sjp1991

Hours of wasted time! - I am so furious with this app at the moment. I have loved playing Sims for such a long time and never had a problem until now. On multiple occasions, I have been in the middle of playing and the app just completely closes out. So everything I just created didn’t save. I was contructing a community lot for a business for my sim and completed everything then the app closed out for no reason. When I went back in nothing was saved. There needs to be some sort of auto-saving so this does not occur. This was hours of trying to create this lot and now it is just wasted! Because of this stupidity, I am putting a hold on playing this game and at this point I may just have to find another type of game to play instead. So annoyed!

Download - The game has been “downloading” for over 6 hours. It got stuck after that and now is staying on 4.15 gb. I want my money back.

Review by Hack......

GET IT!!!!!! - if u are reading this to know to get or not I think you should! I was VERY sad when my sims 3 game stopped working, i baught it fir the wii but the sims 3 evperience just wasnt the same! ive played the sims 2 on friends computers before I HATED IT, after playing the sims 3 it fells dull and idiotic, but i thaought for it being on sale right now for only 15 dollars it would be better then sims on the wii, i downloaded it, and because of the fact that mac is constantly upgradaing this game, it is amazing. Ive played the sims 4 but the sims 2 now has way BETTER GRAPHICS then the 4th game. I was blown away by the ADORABLE NEW PETS that were added, the pools and new age groups it is just like the sims 3 but better, i didnt like the sims 4 because there is no toddlers or any of my favorite functions from the sims 3, it also giver less in the base game. basiclly the sum of this is if u wannna upgrade from the sims 3 without having the stupide annoying thins on the sims 4 this is oddly the way to go!!!!! sorry bout the typos!!

Review by Mgaliotti

Please complete the collection! - This was an amazing surprise to see in the App Store. Works flawlessly and certainly brings back some old memories…. But why wouldn’t you give us the full experience? The sims 2 has so many more amazing expansion packs, yet we are limited to just these? I would have paid double the price if i could just have the complete collection. I hope we see the addition of atleast a few more expansion packs, if not the complete set. If any of you are on the fence about this purchase, don’t be! This is well worth the price! Happy simming everyone!

Review by piperass

Literally Worthless - I purchased this game and had to pause it while I was downloading it…. since then it WILL NOT restart, it has said waititng for days. I have zero idea of how to fix it either. I am very annoyed that I spent $30 on something that will never download. Great waste of money.
