Why the HELL is this game so dumbed down? Is their target audience 8 year olds?? I was reading and looking into it today and wow is it limited. They claim the way you create things and what not intuitive (a word that doesn't mean much anymore anyways) but all it is is a kid's game. Obviously EA forgot The Sims was basically THE casual game. It was THE game people who weren't gamers, saw, and went: Oh wow! and played for hours on end. But this is their way of grabbing the casual market? More like kid market... Anyways, I'm sure most of you guys would rather play the Sims you all know and love instead of having a dumbed down version where you restore a town and build with LEGOs. I suggest to everyone (unless you are around the grand age of 8 or under) to not purchase this game as a slap in the face to EA and their stupidity.
