When it comes to the Sims games, there have been entirely too many that are just too similar. As the years passed by, none of the new games seemed to be what I was looking for; something new. It was monotonous and kind of boring after a while and unfortunately I haven’t purchased a Sims game in a long time.
Earlier this year, on March 22, 2011 The Sims Studio and Electronic Arts produced another Sims game called The Sims Medieval. At first I was skeptical, thinking it was going to be the same open world sandbox development game as all the others, with just a slightly different setting; however I was proven completely wrong.
After reading some of the reviews which described the Sims Medieval, I decided that not everyone could be proven wrong so I gave it a shot.
The new Sims Medieval takes the best features of the previous game and then adds in some fantastic quests and other complicated conquests that you have to beat. These new elements make the game simply amazing and it takes a lot of strategy to be able to successfully beat some of the quests.
On top of being able to build a kingdom and rule over all of the peasants in the world, you also get to control a limited amount of sims characters which are only heroes. These heroes you get to send on quests and you have certain goals to accomplish. These goals can range from something simple as building your castle, to something incredibly difficult as taking over a surrounding nation.
Overall this game gave you an entirely new feel, and breathed life back into the Sims. It is definitely a great game to play, but one of the downsides is when you want to change up your character you have to recreate your entire kingdom again
There is still plenty of humorous features in the game, unfortunately you don’t have to take your sims character to the bathroom anymore, but since its set in the medieval time you can’t pimp out your castle with lava lamps or anything else not true to the time frame.
