The Sims 2 is the next generation of the bestselling PC franchise. For the
first time, players control their Sims over an entire lifetime from womb to
tomb. Every choice you make has a relevant and dramatic effect on the life of
your Sim. More life-like Sims, all-new gameplay and the ground-breaking addition
of genetics gives players a more vivid and in-depth Sims experience.
Guiding your Sims through "Life's Big Moments" takes on new importance, as
players now get a "Life Score" to measure how well they are playing each
individual Sim. The decisions that players make throughout the lifetime of their
Sims now have an impact on their long-term success or failure. A choice made as
a toddler has a direct effect on the teen and adult Sim they become. Will
players be able to successfully lead their Sims through such important events as
a first step, first crush, or marriage proposal, all while the clock is ticking?
The Sims in The Sims 2 are more aware and responsive to both other Sims and
their surroundings. Sims truly come to life expressing moods and feelings
through more realistic body animations and for the first time facial animations.
They form complex relationships and are able to distinguish between family and
friends, platonic friendships and romantic love. Sims in The Sims 2 now have
DNA. Passing along physical characteristics and traits to their offspring, Sims
both resemble and behave like their ancestors. As in real life, the appearance
of the Sims now changes over time. In addition to getting older, a Sim that
spends too much time on the couch will develop a paunch and a Sim that works out
will enjoy rock solid abs.
An entirely new 3-D engine makes the world of The Sims 2 more life-like and
dynamic. The Sims 2 will also introduce an all-new "Create-a-Sim" feature. This
allows you to customise the facial features of your Sim with a few simple
clicks, to a level of detail never realised before. In The Sims 2, players are
now able to build dwellings over two stories and have the ability to coordinate
and customise the homes of their Sims to a new degree of design with all-new
furniture, lighting and objects.
