The Sims Mobile Review

So I have been playing The Sims 4 a lot lately, and saw that they now have an official mobile game as well, so I decided to give it a try and share what I thought.


As expected for a mobile version of a PC/Console game, it is pretty limited when it comes to customization of your Sim, but I was a little surprised that it wasn’t as horribly limited as I was expecting. There was quite a bit of body and face adjustments you can make, and an okay amount of clothing and such. You get more as you unlock stuff by playing the game too.


You start out as a fresh new Sim with a fixer-upper home as the game does the tutorial. Although it is easy to tap on certain things to make actions happen, moving furniture was a pain for me. You are also limited in what furniture you can add at the start, because you have to earn money AND some house ticket thing I still don’t understand. So remodeling your house in the mobile game is already more difficult than in The Sims 4.


You still interact with others, get a job and get to do the job and work with your sim, and that’s basically all I have learned about this game. Why? Because I find it predictable and dull. Like every other mobile game, you can spend money and get resources to progress faster. These games bore me to tears because I don’t want to pay to win. And it’s a light version of other Sims games, so since I own The Sims 4, I can just play that game because it is ultimately better.


After finishing this post, I will probably uninstall The Sims Mobile. I have other mobile games I would rather play than this one, and if I want my Sims fix, I have The Simes 4.

If you want to try this game out for yourself, it is free on Google Play and iTunes.

Have you ever played the Sims? What is your favorite thing to do in the Sims? Let me know with a comment below.
