I was so happy when I found out the other day that EA was making a Sims 4. I have been playing the Sims ever since the very beginning so I bought it this morning and could hardly wait until I got home to play it. When it finally finished installing I nearly jumped out of my seat because I was so excited. The moment it installed I created my person, I absolutely love the way you can shape your characters, but I was VERY sad that you couldn't customize your hair, eye color, clothes or anything! After I finished making my person I went to pick a house, only to find out that the open world I had come to know and love was no longer there. You only had about a handful of different houses to pick from and there are only about 4 community lots, an art museum, a club, the gym, a park and that's it.....SUPER disappointed! Then the different careers are also a let down, as soon as it is time for your character to go to work they disappear into oblivion until it is time for them to come home, and when they do come home their mood is completely depressed. Interactions between the many Sims of the world have improved, the multi-tasking is great! I really wish I would have bought this game digitally through the Origin store that way I could have returned it before my 24 hour window was up, but looks like I am stuck with this game and until they make MAJOR improvements I will be playing TS3 for the foreseeable future. So save yourself some money if you are debating buying this game because it is not work the money. Thanks EA for completely ruining this game for me.
Sincerely, a disappointed customer.
