Here’s the first part of our Apartment Life review, to start off we’re going to be looking at the actual Apartment Life aspect.
You can have 4 families of 8 per apartment block, only being able to control one family at a time.
However you can knock on your neighbors door and be invited in, and you can advertise for a room mate but these are NPCs (non-playable characters).
There are a few pieces of new furniture, we love the fold away bed.
The apartments are only partially customizable, so you can re arrange furniture, rip up the carpets and re paper the walls. With no control over the shape and size of the rooms the fold away bed is a Sims god send!
See how it leaves space for the treadmill perfectly?
Run for that iPhone James, run!
Ahh every Sim girls dream, a full size wardrobe!
Fancy your self as the next Matt Willis? (someone who sings alone in their bedroom?) Well you’re going to love the latest addition to the band equipment. Sing, tell jokes, it’s up to you!
Never have we been so excited! The return of the love bed (The Sims 1)
It vibrates and it comes in red or pink! Ahh just how we remember it!
We’re loving all the new playground equipment! The swings are still adult Sim friendly but gutted that the slide, monkey bars and roundabout are for child Sims only.
You can’t beat a Sim party, but we’ve tried and tried to throw one in our Flecking apartment and it aint going to happen! What will we do without the ‘Throw Party’ function?
So you can’t party, but you can still dance the hustle at 3am in your underwear!
Careful though, with Sims at either side they may complain about the noise!
All apartment lots have a landlord, he takes care of the lot and everything in it.
EA don’t recommend flirting with the landlord, but hey – a girl has bills to pay!
Of course this can all go wrong if the landlord falls for you and pops the question.
In this scenario you’ll only end up married to an ex landlord and assigned a new one.
Yeah, it adds some great stuff, but nothing can beat our favourite Nightlife feature has to the the flaming bag of shit.
Piss someone off? Cheat on them? Take them on a bad date?
No more will they come by your house and kick over your trashcan, now you get the paper bag full of dog shit, set alight!
More coming soon!
