Create your dream life in the 3D space of the game

What is The Sims 2?

The Sims 2 is a great computer game that simulates life in 3D. Many new features have been added, but the familiar concept of the game has remained. To start playing, you need to create your character. You can change his appearance as you like, choose clothes and posture. You can also choose a character, behavior style, and life goals. In this way, the character will behave like a real person. Then there is an opportunity to build a house and furnish it. Next, you need to take care of the character, improve his social status and look for romantic relationships. Do everything you can't afford in real life.

Changes in characters

In the second version, the developers improved the characters. Now they can grow up and pass on their genetics to their offspring. Sims have age periods - baby, child, teenager, adult, and elderly. Each of them has its duration and the last period ends with the death of the character. At all times, you need to meet your Sim's basic needs for food, sleep, and the like. Before you die, you need to achieve goals and become advanced citizens.

Characters automatically age every 24 hours. You can throw a birthday party or press Grow Up between growing-up periods. You also have the opportunity to enter the university to transition to the "young" age stage. You can develop your character's skills, earn rewards, and build relationships to move up the career ladder. In this way, you will be able to take care of your character's well-being.

New cities

  • Base locations for life. Three cities appeared in The Sims 2: Novosil, Kitezhgrad, and Verona. In them, you can build a house and walk the streets. They have tutorials for beginners, so if you've never played The Sims before, the game will help you understand the whole concept.

  • Blooming Hills. This is the first edition with a calm and picturesque nature. There are more opportunities for growing crops and building romantic relationships.

  • Zhelany Valley. There are many fantastical elements here, which makes the location look like a place from fantastic dreams. You will also get several bonuses from this add-on.

  • Belladonna Bay. It is the third edition that looks like a place to rest. Suitable for exciting adventures in large Sim families.

Should I download The Sims 2 for Windows?

If you have a lot of free time and love quiet games, you will like The Sims 2. This is an excellent life simulator in which you can create your characters, build them a house and manage their lives. Compared to the previous version of the game, the graphics have become much better, and now you can enjoy the game in 3D format.
