  • Could use some improvement

    By themobilesimmer
    First off I love the sims mobile it’s a great game and I encourage everyone who may be reading this to download it but, it lacks some stuff for one we need more sims only having 4 playable sims really limits storytelling and over all gameplay. We also need to have more levels, after about 6 months of playing I hit level 50 I was happy but months later I’m bored and would like new levels to look forward to or want to achieve. Another problem I have is with party’s ,party’s are a really fun aspect of the game and meeting other players is great! But... you can only have 50 friends and there are so many more players I wish I could be friends with (go to their party’s and meet their sims) but you can’t cause 50 is the limit :( also the find party’s tab needs to show player level ,often times new players don’t understand leveling up party’s yet or just don’t care. There’s many more things and I know the firemonkeys are improving tsm everyday but can’t get to all issues and this stuff takes time so I’m just gonna list a few more really quickly ,gender neutral CAS is a need not having this makes such a diverse game not so diverse, we also need seasons, day and night cycle, pets (only pets currently are available via surprising choices) oh and on that note no more surprising choices. I know this is a lot of criticism but there’s so much good in the game too and the firemonkeys have done a phenomenal job and I can’t wait to see what they do with 2020 💖
  • Expecting the Expected, but was Unexpected

    By Treasure56
    Hi everyone! So I had been waiting for this game for a long time. During that long time the thought bubbles in my mind painted numerous pictures of what this game would look like, running out of fuel for the game, waiting forever in a day for my sim to come back from work, or getting lost in what to do like I was in the Sims Freeplay. When this dropped, I knew I had to find out if I could actually enjoy this game. Well whadoyouknow! I really liked it! Numerous stories you can give to your sims, collect heirlooms to pass down through generations, and your energy seems to have the perfect rate of depletion. In my opinion, they did great! I keep my sims running on the quick interactions and I seem to have energy all day. My only criticism here is the variety of decoration. Sure they have many different color schemes to choose from, but the next house is sure to have the same sofa, rugs, counter tops, beds, etc. $15 for a Virtual bedroom set isn’t just a no for me! While this pricing is based on a pre-release, it’s still very steep. If you want to stand apart from other houses by more than just color, prepare to bring out your wallets... not the fake simoleon ones either. This is the real deal. Guys this is a great game! Level 23 in about a week! I wasn’t expecting it to be so fancy :), but it’s sophistication is pretty nice.
  • I wish it was more like the Sims 4 on PC

    By GymnastGirl2005
    I love the game and glad that mobile players have an updated way to play the Sims. However, the changes the creators made on the Sims Mobile are things that even the Sims Freeplay have. I wish the Sims’ needs were in this game instead of the 30 amount of energy players are limited to. Also, I wish that things weren’t so expensive to pay for. For example, 40,000 to buy another plot for another household of Sims. Another difference from the PC game is that the babies our Sims have don’t automatically get added to the household. As well as players having to pay SimCash or having to complete a quest to get another slot in order to add another Sim to our household. Lastly, I wish that the game didn’t use real-life time for events. That makes the game so much less fun for me and most limited time quests (or all of the ones I’ve had so far) have players complete the really long 8-hour events. I wish that the game used the Sims’ time in their world instead of real time to avoid events taking so long to complete. Basically, I want players to be able to complete events on the Sims Mobile like players are able to on the PC game. Please make these changes in order for the game to be more like the PC version. Mobile games tend to be less fun compared to their PC counterparts. I just want these changes made so that the mobile game is more like the PC version, if possible by developers.
  • Fun but kinda boring now

    By Lavaburst8888
    I’ve been playing the sims mobile for more than a couple weeks and it’s the same thing over and over to do each day. Work on your sims career, interact with people, start a relationship with someone, have a child etc... it’s boring to me now doing the same thing every time I go into the game. I wish they would make an update to add pets that way you could train a dog or even do a competition or show showing off the dogs tricks. I also wish when the baby turned into a toddler it could play with more things like a pool or be able to interact more with family and possible make some friends. I think the to do list is stupid. What’s the point of it? Nothing in my opinion. I also wish you could garden or have more hobbies for the sims to do. In my opinion, the sims free play is more interesting now than this game. I used to play it and there’s much more to do and even upgrade your house. If pets were added at least make it so the characters could play with them and you can shop for accessories for them and be able to make the child look however you want when it’s a toddler or at least a teenager. I hate having to wait until a sim is able to retire in order to control a other sim or change their appearance. Please take into these considerations the next time the app is updated. Also one more thing it seems like the quests are around the same thing which is annoying. Also I don’t understand why things break cuz it’s stupid to pay to get it fixed.
  • Great game, but overly complicated

    By Athena1975
    First I’d like to say that this is a BEAUTIFUL game graphics-wise, which is why I now strongly prefer it over Sims Freeplay. The graphics alone are worth the download. There’s also interesting storylines to follow. It needs some work though. One big flaw is that the benefits from heirlooms aren’t apparent at all. You can’t even get a straight answer on what to DO with these trinkets. For example, I unlocked the pickpocket trait yet my Sim NEVER gets any extra coins from interactions. Where’s the benefits from the heirlooms that I worked so hard to retire a Sim to get? The furnishings are way too expensive compared to what you get “paid” for doing tasks, and you even have to pay for color selection which is ridiculous. Also, you only get two playable Sims up front. 3rd one is very difficult to achieve, but attainable. 4th Sim is ridiculously expensive and you don’t have the option to obtain it other than paying. So shortsighted because the game starts to get boring when you have your 2-3 Sims doing the same long chapters over and over and you start wishing for more Sims for some variety. Yawn. I also have some petty complaints. PLEASE STOP with the chefs making silly faces and noises at the start of each Sweet Treat challenge. I don’t think any of us are 5 years old. And farting when you click “fireside chat?” NO!! Also, can the white clothes be brighter instead of looking like dingy grey? Thanks for reading.
  • Love, but could be better

    By cjtjrjgjfkakdnt
    I absolutely love the game, I have so much fun. However it can be hard to play because the events take so long, and Sims run out of energy so fast. I’ve unlocked everything for restoring energy, and the power ups, but it’s still hard when you can only use them every 2-39 hours......especially since you spend 2 of your sim’s energy to knock off a whole 2-4 minutes of an 8 hour event. 30 energy does not go far, wish that increased with level. The cupcakes help, but are rare to come by, and EXPENSIVE. It can take upwards of 5 cupcakes to complete an 8hr event in one sitting, it’s hard to justify spending the money. Also with Simcash was a little easier to come by, it’s really impossible to save up for anything when you can hardly find ways to get it. And again, spending $5 for 200 simcash, does NOT go far. Same with fashion gems. And life tickets. Only other thing I wish was different, is that there was a little more of the original sims in the game. Would love to see benefits from the sims interacting outside of an event. Overall, I think the game is much more focused on earning a high revenue than how enjoyable the game is. I think if you threw some extra “premium” goodies in the way of the users, and made the purchase options more reasonable, people would be much more inclined to both play often, and spend money. I have to say, I really find this game to be focused on earning money above everything else, the customer does NOT come first.
  • An Amazing Game, but has it’s Flaws

    By LousieLaughs
    This games is really fun, I enjoy playing the sims on my computer and that’s what inspired me to download this game. I know not every game is perfect, and so I’m writing this review to explain the problems I face while playing. Unlike some games this game has no bugs or crashes so far when I played, but I do feel as though it’s a little hard to get money. Getting simoleons, I feel, is a lot more challenging then I wished it to be. And it doesn’t make it any better when everything is so expensive. I’m not planning on spending actual money on this game, and if that’s the only way, I’m not too stoked about it. I should be done with my rant, but while I’m at it I’m going to bring something else up. MAKE THE LIMITED QUESTS LONGER!! I was did the Wedding quest, and now I’m working on the baby quest. You literally get two days to complete then each, and each event is like 8 hours! As you maybe could tell, I didn’t finish complete the wedding quest, am I didn’t get the honeymoon suite. Which is fine, it’s just a game right? But it would be a lot better if the limited quests were a little longer, or shorten the events. Because you have to complete like 15 events in 2 days and they are each 8 hours long, and I don’t have the time to play this game 24/7. Thank you for reading, and I hope you could take my feedback in consideration, and make this game more enjoyable for everyone.
  • Hard to Play

    By UNCsailor
    First off, I really do enjoy playing this game. I downloaded it about 2-3 weeks ago and have been playing it fairly often since. I’m now level 23 and I have my couple relationship 100% so now I’m trying for a baby. You get almost 2 days to complete the quest to have a baby and to get the bassinet you’ll need. I’m on my 3rd 8 hour long back to back event in the baby chapter and c’mon creators! I don’t want to be a slave to this game. Why are you making it so hard? I’m also trying to upgrade my home and clear out land but it keeps getting more expensive with each upgrade. It was 1500 simoleons to clear out a small space of land and now I go to clear the land next to it and they want 2000. Now how am I supposed to make that money when you have me stuck in these 8 hour long events that only pay 300? We just don’t make that much money in this game. It definitely seems like it’s aimed at us BUYING simoleons/cash with our own money and that doesn’t make it any fun. They don’t even have a good deal for the simoleons. My suggest is improve the pay for jobs and hobby event completions. I want to thrive in this game but this is making me annoyed and just want to delete it. Also, there’s so much more to this game but I have to retire my sims in order to get a heirloom in order to unlock more things. So essentially you work hard on your sims, then they want you to retire them and start over a new sims and making even less money again. Lol.
  • Kinda disappointed but rrly bored

    By angry and disappionted
    I love this game and I think it’s the closest thing to the Sims 4 on pc but it’s lacking in some areas. Firstly it’s highly repetitive. All we do is get a job, get a hobby and finish it. There’s nothing interesting about that. I think you should try to make it less repetitive. Secondly one thing I loved about the sims especially sims 3 was first person POV and walking around town myself, not just tapping on my screen and arriving places. I really like the graphics of this game but I think you should try incorporating some things from all the sims games to make it a good game. At first playing the game is really excited and intriguing but when you start getting the same quest over and over again about completing jobs and hobbies people begin to lose interest. Thirdly we need the needs back. Make our sims feel more like real people rather than robots on a screen. I enjoyed making my sims a meal whenever they were hungry and rushing them to the bathroom before they pee on themselves. I honestly just hate the way we only get two players at first and have to pay to get more. I enjoyed having big families in both the sims 3 and 4. Another thing we need back is different outfits for different occasions. I loved spending hours trying to figure out what my sims should wear for their athletic occasion. Idrk but the sims mobile has just been a disappointment and I hope that your listen to us and make the game more enjoyable
  • Ok, but pretty slow gameplay

    By #Hedgehog1000000
    This game is ok, and in some places, an improvement from other sims mobile games, because it has more options when it comes to character creation, and it gives you more ways to develop your sims’ hobbies, relationships, and jobs. At the same time, though, there are a lot of glaring issues. For one, the game only gives each of your sims a set amount of energy, which runs out from telling your sim to do things. Besides using a bed or shower for a few more energy points, it quickly can get used up. Once it runs low, you can either purchase a cupcake to refuel them, or wait until it fills back up again. This means a lot of waiting in between gameplay, and it can get a little tedious. With most events and jobs too, these can take over an hour to complete without paying for it with in game or real currency. There are not as much things to do with house design, since the plots are already small even if you buy all the land. Also, I don’t know if this issue was only with my device, or if it’s been fixed by now, but when I played the game, it would often lag or just immediately exit out of the app. This bug combined with the constant waiting and limited house design made me bored quickly, and I dropped the game after a month. If you enjoy less hands-on games, you might still enjoy this. Overall, the game is fun for a while, but needs some more additions to fully make it worth playing again.
