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.
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.

READ IF YOU’RE A TRUE SIMS FAN - If you’re on OG Sims Fan; and this game was your life growing up then, you’re going to be highly amazed that all of these expansion packs are under one install and works smoother than ever before! This game IS the original sims 2 game but with much higher quality. My waittime for loading screens are measured in SECONDS compared to sims 4… There are no lags/glitches it’s amazing! I am BEGGING Aspyr to make an add-on application with the rest of the expansion/stuff packs. You cannot beat the price.. I remember paying $25 per expansion pack in the day so this is unbelievable and well worth the money.
Love it! - Honestly bless Aspyr for making this collection, I get a few graphical issues once in a while on my Macbook Air but nothing major. This game really runs great for how old it is, and I was so happy to see they updated it for Catalina. If you like the Sims series you'll love this!
Super hesitant at first, but glad I got it! - I grew up with sims 2 and loved it to pieces. Now that i'm older, playing sims 4 doesnt hit the same as 3 or 2 did. I had sims 3 on my mac until I got a new mac and found out it was not compatible with the newest macbook, but when i saw the sims 2 on the app store i was so excited! reading some reviews, I was hesitant, but after buying it it's worth every penny and I have a nostalgic blast. It has its things here and there but nothing too crazy. Only thing I wish for is new and more expansion packs! overall super happy with this. Whether its for the nostalgia or trying it out you wont be dissapointed!
Horrible Update - Up until the most recent update, I would've rated this 5 stars. Sims 2 was my favorite childhood game, so I was estatic to find it on the App Store. I played it happily for multiple years. However, the most recent update took away the "Restore Neighborhood: X" feature. As someone who messes around and therefore resets their neighborhoods often, I basically cannot play anymore. I deleted a couple neighborhoods, which, before the update, wasn't an issue — I could simply restore them. Now? I can't get them back. Being able to reset default settings, create huge families/timelines, undo, restart, and etc are signifcant features to playing Sims 2 stress free and risk free. Until there is an easy way to restore neighborhoods again, I cannot play anymore.
Nostalgia - This port is everything you could ask for. Great graphics (for a 15 year old game), super-smooth gameplay (with no chopiness or lagging) and many of the expansion and stuff packs included. I've noticed some criticism for the lack of the last two EP's and a few of the stuff packs. This is because these were never originally ported to Mac so that should not be held against the makers of this port. I am very happy I am able to play this game again and I am even more grateful the folks at Aspyr were able to make this app compatible with Catalina. Thanks so much Aspyr!
