September 20 - Friday Highlight is here! Check it out!
September 17 - We just released a small patch for The Sims 4 on PC/Mac - click here for more details.

I'm starting to think it's not gonna get better.

Yeaaahh....I am mostly convinced that nothing isn't gonna get better....so, still waiting for LGR's video to make my decision...but wanted to share.




EDIT : Here's two different other reviews that address the game issues ... something isn't right...

    I do to. It's not just this but a number of little hiccups (the glitches, the useless greenhouse, the not so secret secret world) are killing my excitement for the pack. Kind of glad I ended up unable to get it on release.

    Exactly. Does no one even bother to playtest their own game anymore?!

    Hopefully Farming and University packs will be 100 times better than Realm of Magic. I'm REALLY looking forward to Farming and University,and I hope they come pretty soon.

    For me, it has been that disappointing since day one. Not surprised, I should be plum fool to think it's gonna improve. (Since I know somebody here's gonna misunderstand my post, I'm not calling anyone a fool 🙄).

    Me too...me too...I am so disappointed in myself that I keep giving them a benefit of a doubt.

    I just think it’s easy for us to judge the devs, but since I have been studying computer science, I have discovered how hard it is to make a small program, you write a line of code and bam, a bug appears out of nowhere, now imagine developing a game that complex, of course they will miss something, that’s why we have patches, so if they are willing to fix stuff, I’m totally fine... I’m not a builder and I value more the gameplay aspect of the game and I think they did a good job with the witches. What I saw from a lot of YouTubers is that they don’t play with occults so of course they will find the pack boring

    I think it's not entirely unfair for us to judge the devs. Programming has been hard since the day it was invented, that's why there are good and bad programmers, there's always going to be bugs, you are good when you can fix them. The compiling program also helps with the bugs no? But they have (supposedly) a full team of programmers working for them looking at the code, it's not just one person. Maxis was the one who decided (or EA really) that this game was profitable enough for it to be supported by longer than 5 years, if they can't handle the bugs that's on them and their decision.

    A missing door, a roof not completed and missing cupboards. It would be sad to judge an entire pack on those few things.
    Should they have happened? Probably not, very sloppy and lazy but compared to what else you get in the pack that's trivial.
    Magic and occults are not for everyone but beside these few things this is a very well done pack in my opinion.

    Extremely well done. And the visuals are amazing. I actually love watching the Spellcasters duel :)

    AH And it seems Plumbella JUST made another video...

    we need to start looking at how this series is going downhill.

    I think they are trying, ts4 was bad when it launched without toddlers and pools but they improved and now we have a lot of stuff, of course I feel dissatisfied with some stuff like no under the sea feature or the lack of animals, but I honestly think that ts4 is better than ts3 with all the bugs and horrible sims, it’s not as good as ts2, but it’s not a bad game, so I think it’s getting better and that they listen the community and try to put some stuff people want if they fit the engine

    I've been feeling that way since the re-brand. :/

    I really agree with the poll result about lacking gameplay. It's really sad and it's there. Either you work your way around it or get bored. Perhaps that's why raging about missing doors just seems rather irrelevant to me. Those are stupid mistakes but such small problems in comparison.
